Oh never saw that coming.. that is unusual in the pro audio market. In that case forget bridged mono and just run the amp in stereo.

Most pro amp have input and thru connectors on them but apparently Behringer didn't include those so you just need a couple Y cables to split the signals to both amps.

That particular sub is dual-coil, so you can run a stereo amplifier into it, and it has highpass outs for a pair of tops that'll be stereo.

Quite a neat little setup, but not great if you want to scale upwards.

Default UPDATE

Just after getting these, I won an auction on eBay for the same 2 tops but two lix-c15sb subs instead - 1200w program each - for 165!

Bought an NU4-6000 so thinking of hooking up the tops to 2 channels (does 440w at 8 ohms so will have to be very careful with it) and the other 2 to the subs - 860w at 4 ohms each which sits to the lower end in-between continuous and program?

Alternatively I thought I could run them in parallel with 2 of the channels bridged - but it only gives ratings for 4 and 8 ohms bridged (though it can do 2 separately), does this mean that this is not an option?

Planning to sell the other 2 tops and the EVP sub, though some tiny voice in the back of my head keeps whispering "super-rig......"

So you now have 4 tops and 4 subs?
First thing is don't mix different types of subs.
Next, 4 speakers in parallel is a 2ohm load so no you can't bridge the amp into that, and besides it won't deliver any more power than 2 channels at 4 ohms.

What power amp would I want for this if the stereo sub is 800w 4 ohm (2x400 and 2x4 ohm) then goes out to 300w 8 ohm each ? would be useful to have a second system as I'm planning to rent them out

Nah I was joking that'd be overkill! Ok I thought that would be the case. I think I get it now: 1 channel per speaker (2 tops 2 subs) with the built in amp crossover
