    Bridging MTX Blue Thunder PRO 50x4

    Ive got the amp in the title. Im no longer using my rear speakers as they are faded all the way out, and with the new, much louder substage I have Id like to throw more power at my front speakers.

    I have searched, and it seems bridging wiring methods are amp specific, so I dont want to fawk anything up, and the manual is long gone.

    So, could anyone show/tell me what the pattern here would be? And finally, I do not want to take apart the dash to get to HU RCAs, am I correct in assuming I can do this all at the amp end of things?



    just post them here somebody... teh mods don't care anymore... I just saw a tranny get fawked in somebody's avatar, it even has a swinging kek and happy face on it. The ole' lady thinks I'm crazy for coming here now after she saw that.

    Okay, basically if a amp is stable at 2 ohms per channel, it should be 4ohm stable bridged.
    So if all 4 channels are capable of taking a 2 ohm load. You can bridge it to two chanels at 4 ohms.
    I don't know if that amp is stable at that ohm load.
    For a wiring diagram. Typically, when bridging amps, you would take a negative from one channel and a positive from the other. As far as doing it all on the amp end, simply take your front 2channel RCA's and go pick up some Y-splitters from radio shack, and do it that way. That way you get a stereo output.
    You might Email or call MTX's tech department and ask them.
    This is a write up on bridging amps by ZED, he knows his stuff. Probably as much or more than anyone I've read. http://www.zedaudiocorp.com/Technica...Amplifiers.htm

    Alright thanks for the help. Yep its a pretty old school amp, is stable at 2 ohms and at 4 ohms bridges, I just wasnt sure how to go about it. The amp also has seperate gains and crossovers for front and rear channels, so what should I do with these?
