does the amps have a rca line output?  if so, chain the rca's from one amp to another and the bass knob goes into the first amp, that way it controlls the bass going to both amps

what are your ohm subs do you have?

did you not recieve the instruction manual?

it will tell you the lowest ohm load for the channels

If we learn from each success and
each failure, then we can improve ourselves

also you can take neg from (amp 1 )speaker  terminal  to neg of (amp 2  )speaker  teminal and pos of amp 1 terminal to sub pos and pos of amp 2  teminal to sub neg  if you go this way then leave the subs parallel for 2ohm load then wire in series to amp  for a 4ohm load  for two subs

amp1 would be your master amp 2 would be slave

Ah, no, you cannot do that with most amps.

No you can not wire the amps in that way
