Hey guys im thinking about buying 2 pairs of yorkville ls1208 subs but im not sure if i have the proper amps for them . I currently have one qcs 3000 mx and one yorkville 6020 and im thinking of using one pair per amp on bridge mode. What do you think?

Usually you need 2x's the program power, so you're thinking about running two per side. You'll need 8000 watts per side to run them at their best. You could power them with what you have, but you're not going to get their full potential... especially the QSC 3000 bridged will only get you 3000 watts impedance matched, I believe at four ohms, so you have to ensure the cabs are eight ohms each to get the most out of your amps.

I would suggest two crown I-tech 8000s bridged one per side and that would work better, but cost a few bucks.

Yorkville has very reliable and great sounding boxes. Have you tried looking at the front loaded LS801P? I have four and they sound really good and you don't have to worry about the amps. They're powered.

I don't see any problems running both your amps in bridge mode because I just checked the specs on those subs and they're 8 ohm, so you can safely power two per side. You'll just be underpowered.

Saludos!
