    bridging amp - need help with rca cables

    hey i am trying to bridge my Diamond 4 channel amp to achieve 175x2 @ 4 ohm for my Crystal components. However i do not know how many rca cables i should use, where to hook them and what setting to use for the amp (2CH, 3CH, 4 CH). Should i use 2 sets of RCA for the front and rear and set the amp at 4CH?

    Doesn't your manual give you the wiring instructions with diagrams? I put a Diamond amp in my buddy's tahoe, and it had illustrations. You need one set of RCA's PER COMPONENT. If you are running a 4 channel amp bridged to two channels, then you need 2 sets of 2 channel RCA's.
