    you can bridge an amp UNLESS it was made to be bridged.

    Icon32 HUH ??

    I believe what Chris "meant" to say was the amp can NOT be bridged unless it was made to be bridged. With that in mind he didn't really even answer your question. So he shouldn't even reply if he isn't going to try to help.
    Most 2-channel amps are bridgeable. check your owners manual or somewhere on the amp to see if it is bridgeable. Then you have to make sure that your amp is stable at the load you are going to present to it once you've bridged it. For example if you have one sub and it is a 2 ohm sub your amp must be stable at 2 ohms. Or you'll burn it up. Lots of factors involved here without knowing what your sub is.

    Larry :p

    what he meant to say was if your amp is 2 OHM MONO STABLE (not many amps are) then your amp will be ok...and if it is 2 ohm mono stalbe then it is 1 ohm stereo stable..u can take 1 svc4 ohm subs to the amp...or if it is dvc then u hook up each coil to a channel...most of the time u cannot hook up a svc2 ohm sub to a 2 channel amp..there arent that many amps that can take 2 ohm mono bridged (autotek can, which is a very good company)

    if ur not gonna help him out dont post man!!! what is ur problem?



    It's all bout respect!

    Gee Really ??

    Of course I meant 2 ohm mono stable...........anyone who wants to "BRIDGE" an amp is going for a MONO load. He said it was for his sub therefore it is a MONO load, I know what I'm talking about.
