Bridging issues my friend's amp's speaker out put runs + - - + and will bridge the left (+) with the right (-) but when we bridge with the left (-) to the right (+) the second sub recieves no power while the first still does, and when we connect the subs without bridging they both run with power and i was wondering as to why we cant bridge both speakers.

There's no signal on the L- and R+ terminals.

If you're going to bridge both speakers on the amp, each speaker must have an impedance of 8 ohms (or more). If you're unsure of the impedance of the speakers, connect one speaker to each channel.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

How do you wire a qx500.1d to get 1 bridged channel. a shop connected just to the left channel. i thought it needed to be positive from right and negative from left to bridge. i am using 1 fosgate r2d2 10.


A Class D amp only has 1 set of out puts for sub's. so it will only be a left and right pos and neg.As i look your amp it is a 2 channel so both speaker terminals are internally bridged so you can hook the to either set as it will be the same since they are cross overed internally. i found you a good guide for your amp i will include it and should help you greatly. . hoped i helped you.

Phoenix gold MS-2250. Can I run 2 DVC kicker L7s bridged at 1ohm without problems? Trying to get the most power I can. I'm running a 200 amp altenator with 0/1 gauge power wire and 10 farrad cap block. Do...


for better power yes one ohm but amp must be 1 ohm stable.and both subs will have to be 4 ohm subs to get the 1 ohm needed .If its a class D amp both speakers outs are bridged internally so either is ok to use look see if there is a bridging line on speakers that runs from one side to other and will say bridging. if not any side will work.a manu would help you find yours or you can look one up online.al

Wiring diagram for sony xplod amp and how to bridge one


if you have the model number handy i can tell you

but most sonys are marked like this ..

+12v goes directly to the + termanl on the battry
GND goes to a solid metal object on the car (ground)
REM remote turnon goes to the remote turn on from your headunit

unbridged speaker outputs
+L positve left speaker
-L negative left speaker
+R positive right speaker
-R negative right speaker


ok to bridge a amp (must be capabul of doing so) look for a mono switch and set to mono ..

then take the +L channel put it to your subs + and take the -R channel and put it to the - of your sub

also set the cross over switch to LPF if your running bridged for a sub

if that is a bit hard to understand msg back with the model number of the amp and i can get u the orignal manual for the wireing diagram

hope that helps

Can you bridge a sony xm-2200gtx amp, if so what polarity on which channel. Currently pushing two speakers. trying to see if i can bridge it and use a singe speaker?


left positive and right negative-make sure the speaker that you intend to run in bridged mode is 4 ohms or you will kill your amp

It has an A and B channel for spkrs and i have one spkr bridged. do i split the neg to side a and pos to side b or just use one of the channels?


Could you elaborate on how the speaker is bridged?

I think you want to hook up a single speaker to a stereo speaker output.

In this case, you would strap (bridge?) the right and left speaker terminals by running a short wire from A right negative to A left negative. Then strap A right positive to A left positive -- this will give you mono output on either of the right or left speaker terminals -- connect your speaker to either one of these.

Do you know what the ohm rating is for the speaker outs on the amp and also the speaker itself?

More power output to sub


I don't know what kind of Amp you have, but you have to bridge the channels together.....For example, on a 2 channel amp you would just take the + wire from the Left channel and the - wire on the right channel and run it to the speaker. This uses the combined power from BOTH channels and funnels it right into the speaker. I hope you have a low frequency filter "LPF" adjustment. In case you are unfamiliar with this term, LPF is a function that most top-shelf amps have which will cut out most all mid-range and all high-range frequencies and put out only LOW (BASS) frequencies......At any rate, since you have a 4 channel amp, to bridge all 4 channels is a little more complicated so I am not going to elaborate too much information as of now only because I don't want to confuse you, or give you the wrong information pertaining to the wrong type of amp and have it blow up as a result of confusion....But you can bridge 4 channels typically in a similar way

Need to know how to wire the speaker mono?


Bridge should be made positive left channel + negitive into - right channel but make sure the amp can take the speaker impedance load or you will trip the amp or cook it if you over load it.
+ - +- +- +-

My CA9 has protect recurrent problems.


if you are bridged in parallel instead of in series the amp wont support the load so it turns the power protect on till the amp cant handle nomore then the amp will go if you have two subs bridged run them left speaker possative to to the amp possative for bridged mode then laft speaker negative to the right speaker possative then right speaker negative to your amp negative for bridged mode if you have them left and right speaker possative to amp possative and left and right speaker neggative to your negative to your amp thats parallel the ampwont support the 2 ohm load

If the amp is bridgeable then u should see lettering where the speaker outputs or the channels are and you will a symbol saying bridged and then u can see a + and - symbol with lines going to the other channels. In other words they call it bridged because you are jumping from one speaker output to the other, usually bridging an amp consists of Left - to Right + or vice versa.

How to


First of all, make sure your amp is bridgeable. There are a few ways to bridge subs. series: hook one wire from the negative on the left amp output (or whichever is labeled on amp for bridged)to left sub negative. left sub positive to right sub negative, then right sub positive to the amp positive output.(like a big loop through both speakers) parallel: both speakers get their own set of wires, both negatives go to the bridge negative terminal, and both positives go to the positive bridge terminal. Series-parallel: A combination of the two. say two speakers in series, and one hooked up alone, but all to the same amp outputs. Bridging your amp/speakers basically lowers the resistance of the circuit and makes more current flow, more power, louder, harder hit. In series, it also makes both speakers do exactly the same thing, instead of "stereo sound" or L/R differences. What you're probably looking to do is Bridge in parallel. That will drop the resistance of the circuit the lowest, allow the amp to put out the most amount of current to the speakers, and allow your bass to hit the hardest. If your amp only has one output, hook up the same way as above. Just see what resistance your amp is stable down to. If down to 1 ohm, no worries. if stable only to 2 or 4 ohms, you may want to bridge in series to be safe. That will cause the resistance to go up, and will not pull as much current through the amp. The whole time, just remember Bridgeing and higher current mean HEAT so watch your amp. I hope this helped.
