    4 channel amp question

    for a 4 channel amp can you bridge the amp into 2 channels and use channel 1+2 for positive and 3+4 for negative or vise verse

    I don't think you can do that...

    even very expensive amps, the most you can squeeze out of 4 channels are 2 mono channels... well, maybe there are others that aloow what you're saying, but I dont' think I've ever heard of it before...

    That's what Jmac just told you...

    channel 1 and 3 would be +
    channel 2 and 4 would be -

    or the other way round...

    I say its worth a try, the worst that can happen is the amp will prolly run hot and you will have to use a high ohm load. Or the amp can just simply go into protection mode when it gets a signal and tries to play. If I had a 4 channel I would go try it right now but I dont so I cant Oh well someone else who is brave go try it out.

    DOn't you think if you linked it like how you said, you might just void your warranty?
