    Bridged Head Unit

    I have a feeling that this would be a bad thing to do but what do you all think.

    Bridge the connections on a head unit in order to get 44 x 2 instead of 22 x 4??? \

    Bad idea?????

    Re: Bridged Head Unit

    Older Pioneer headunits were supposedly capable of being bridged (manual stated it was capable, never tested it myself).

    But in general, I would not recommend it.
