    how to bridge a 2 channel amp

    Hello everyone, sorry if this has already been covered but I couldn't find the answer anywhere
    I have a Power Acoustik 1600 watt 2 channel Amplifier, here is an example of the what the amp looks like

    http://cgi.ebay.com/1600W-POWER-ACOUSTIK-OV2-1600-2Ch-Car-Amplifier-Amp_W0QQitemZ230312254008QQcmdZViewItemQQptZCar_Am plifiers?hash=item230312254008&_trksid=p3286.c0.m1 4&_trkparms=72:1234|66:2|65:12|39:1|240:1318|301:0 |293:2|294:50

    RMS Power (4 ohms): 310 watts x 2 channel
    RMS Power (2 ohms): 370 watts x 2 channel
    2ohm stable stereo

    Min. Impedance Unbridged: 2 ohms
    Min. Impedance Bridged: 4 ohms



    I have 2 Sony Xplod SVC 4ohm subwoofers that I want to hook up. Does any one have a wiring diagram on how to bridge this type of setup?

    Thanks

    You are either going to need to run the amp bridged with the two woofers in series, which will only be 8 ohms , or run the subs in stereo.

    Is this the diagram you were reffering to?


    Is it ok if the amp is 4ohm stable? Will I getting the most power to the subs this way?
    Thanks again

    Yes it is.

    The power you'll likely end up with is the same power in mono @ 8ohms as
    you would get at 4oms stereo.
