    Turning a 4 channel into a 2 channel

    Ok. This is probably a bit of a newb question. I have a JL300/4 and wondered what would happen if I ditched my rear speakers and made it 150x2.

    So I just want to make sure what I did is effectively putting out 150 watts on each speaker.

    What I did was bridge the two front channels for the right speaker only, and only plug in the right RCA. I did the same for the rear channel, except I bridged it using the left speaker only. I then plugged the left RCA cable into the left.

    Now as long as I keep the gain and crossovers the same, is there anything wrong with this and am I getting 150 watts to each speaker?

    Thanks.

    There is nothing wrong with it at all.

    Sounds like you did a good job.

    And yes, you are getting 150w per side.
