How to bridge both pair of channels of JL audio a4300 (or e4300)
I have a simple question, Actually I cant believe myself for asking that but I am in a very strange situation.
I am running a pair of Morel Tempo 6 and single JL Audio 10w3v3 with my amp.. it sounds fine.. however It lacks a little bit of power and control with my speakers at higher volumes... so I have decided to buy a new mono amp for my sub, and bridge the a4300 to drive my Morel Tempos...
As far as understood from the manual, I bought a pair of "Y" cable to feed Channel1 and Channel2 with "right" signal and the others with "left" signal and connect the speakers as the manual describes... finally make a conservative gain setup and played ...
The sound was very very bad...when I came to 30-35(max62) from the head unit, it creates lots of distortion, clipping, weird, ...simply very bad sound ...
I have also realized the car lights are shaking ... it seems that takes a lot of current from battery even if the the engine running...
I have checked the amp temp, but it was cool..also the power ale is cool too (8awg)
I was very good before (with a sub and a pair of Tempos) also very loud without any distortion ...
What is wrong about my setup ?

The documentation describes as follows, I think this is the way I sohuld go and what I have tried ..
"1) Left Channel Only or Right Channel Only
Information: If you wish to send a left-only
or right-only signal to a pair of the A4300’s
channels, use a “Y-Adaptor” to split the single
channel signal into both left and right RCA
inputs. This option is useful when using a pair
of the A4300’s channels to drive left channel
speakers only and the other pair of the A4300’s
channels to drive right channel speakers only."
I think I am doing what it is written ... right ? ?
