Bridging amp for components?

Hey guys, just wanted some opinions on this.

I currently have a Kenwood amp that puts out 35 watts rms x 4 channels. It's a pretty good amp and it's bridgeable. For my next speaker upgrade I want to go with a decent set of 6.5" components up front. I can bridge this amp to 100 watts rms x 2 which would be perfect for the components I am considering. However in bridged mode it puts out 0.5% THD whereas in normal 4 ohm operation it is only 0.05%. Is this going to make a big difference? Also if the amp is bridged then each channel is seeing 2 ohms, would that make them not sound as good? Or will it still sound pretty decent? Thanks guys.

Well, i don't think it will be seeing 2 ohms for each channel when bridged. The components u get (http://www.thezeb.com check out the cdt cl-61a's) will be 4ohm. Bridge the 4 channel amp like you said, basically you use bridge mode and bridge cahnnel 1+2 and bridge 3+4. As long as the THD is leass than 1%...it is great...you will not notice any difference at all. good luck, peace

That amp does not have the RCA summing feature. You will have to use RCA splitters at the amp. If you already have that, then check the gains.
