    Stereo and Mono

    Okay, another question. What's the difference between Stereo and Mono, and how do I choose between the two when wiring up my sub?

    I heard a lot of people deciding which type to go with, so what does it mean?

    Head Unit: Pioneer DEH-1000
    High-End: Jensen (x4) 6 1/2" w/ Tweeters
    Low-End: 1-12" Pyle BlueWave 1000 watt sub, driven by a Jensen XA2125 500 Watt amp

    mono is probably better for bass reproduction. the reason you would bridge your amp is to gain more power from it. most amps put out more power in bridged mode vs. stereo mode. you just have to be sure the amp can handle the ohm load being presented by the sub(s). you still need a stereo input from your HU to your amp, if you bridge it (or if it is a mono amp) it combines the left/right audio signals.

    good luck and good listening!
