Question Sub/amp/receiver question

I'm not sure this shouldnt be on the SS forum but.. Ive got an old Adcom 10" sub I would like to use for a small HT system. It is a DVC driver w/ a crossover I'll bypass. I also have a Hafer DH200 laying around that is not bridged and would like to use it to power the sub via an A/V receiver. Can I use a y connector from the receiver to split the signal and feed the two channel amp or do I need to bridge the amp like I know I should (I already have two others that are bridged). This is a family room thrasher system so less time/cost = better.
Thanx Taylor

Does the subwoofer have a dual voice coil? If not, I see no problem in driving it with only one channel of the amp if you are not going for maximum power output.

Yes, you can use a Y connector. It will be fine as long as each of the voice coils receives the same signal.
