    How do you bridge two subs for 2 channel amp?

    I got a sony xm-1502 760watt 2/1 channel amp. there's a L and R channel. how do i "Bridge" it ?

    do i just take the POS and NEG terminals from each sub and connect to ONE amp ?

    I have the above amp and it is bridged to 2 jl woofers bridged. All i did was take the outside pos terminal and the inside negative terminal (on the right hand side).

    we need to know the impedance of the voice coils on the subs to really help you out. are they svc or dvc? whatever u do, dont run that amp at 2 ohms unless u only want to run it for 5 minutes and never use it again.

    good one

    good one mike! Knowing dvc or svc is good just as wiring options. As for bridging use a 10-16 guage wire and just hook those up to the amp like I said.

    wire nowadays is color coded cooper colored is power and silver is ground. Silver to negative copper to positive.

    Then depending on svc or dvc & ur preference you can do parallel or series wiring.

    hope that helps!

    owners manual explains how to bridge the amp - follow the manual and make sure you're at 4 ohms or more.



    have you been helped by me? i'd love to know. shoot me a PM.

    we are laughing so hard because this thread is from 2002 and 8 years later CRX decided he'd answer the question. lol
