The 240.4 is a really good 4 channel amp. Are you just going to run the 2 el 1204's off of it? If so the best way to run the it would by bridging ch1&2 to 1 sub and ch3&4 to the other sub. set your Hz level to 45 for each channel and your gain to 3/4.The best way to get your subs the most power would by getting a new amp. Most dont run 4 channel amps for subs. a 2 channel would be the best bet. Use the 4 channel for speakers. at a 4ohm load its a 30x4. thats enough power for speakers. If you were to run a 2 channel amp to the 2 amps then you can wire the amp to hit a 2ohm load. less ohm resistance means more power.Anyways for now bridge your 4 channels into 2. that will hit 120 watts going to each sub. there ya go.

peace

There are many amps out there to look at. Just take in mind that your rms for a el1204 is 300rms. that means to hit the potential rms rating of 2 you need 600 rms watts. The amp that i personally reconemd for that is the JBL BP600.1 . It can produce 600x1 into a 2ohm load. You would have to run your subs in parellel to do that. Alpine makes some good amps also. Just look for a 2 channel amp that can get close to your RMS rating. Shop around and price around. Obviously check out the bazooka el series amps. Some good mono amps there.Good luck man.

peace
