Of course you can use the UcD180 as a sub amp. You can also use it as a midrange amp or even a tweeter amp. You can use it however you want You can also build your own power supply if you wish.

Look at www.hypex.nl

The UCD's make fine subwoofer amps.

You mean tap into the UcD gate drive circuitry to drive other MOSFETs? Possible but not unless you are pretty skilled.

Just buy UcD400 or other version.
