    That would work, but odds are you would only need 1 amp for the 2 subs, unless you have some massive sub that I have never heard of before.

    You can either split the line to go to all the amps (if your sound card only has L&R outs), or if you have a sound card with x.1 out, then you have no problem. The amp will have the cutoff frequencies so you will not damage your sub.

    Make sure to get a class D amp for your subs, by the way.

      You need to post what subs/speakers and amps you have.

      You DO NOT NEED class D on amps. They do make more power but are not a requirement.
