View Full Version : Can you Bridge a Head Unit?

08-23-2004, 11:59 PM
Initially thought this would be a stupid question..But now I am real curious.
Can I bridge my Head unit to run @ 2ohms.
My purpose for this is that I wanted to run some Speakers in my Stock Dash locations. But I think the CDT's In the door running off the ARC AMP will drown out any front dash imaging attempts. BUT..If I run some 2ohm speakers up front and can bridge the H/U..I will have about 50 watts RMS up front..A great idea..But only if it will work which I highly doubt it will.
Anyone ever try this??

this has been covered and im pretty sure the answer is no bridging and no running at 2 ohms

Oh..I had not seen it in any posts and I admit I did not SEARCH it..I thought my idea was "SO" original no one had thought of it..LOL!!!!!!

Yea I am..and I searched this topic and the answer appears to be a big "NO"
I guess H/U are already Bridged!!!

ELABORATE..I have a Pioneer 9400..so what can I bridge it for..Are there any H/U options for what I described with front speaks needing more Juice?

tried it, MOSfet amp get bloody warm, and you will most likely burn up the output IC's and it sounds like poop anyways
