First of all, when bridging an anp, the impenence that it can handle usually goes UP not down. I don't believe that the GPA555 can be bridged without circuit modification.

How to connect a yamaha p7000s amp to an adcom gfp-555 preamp


Use "Main Out Norm" from the gfp-555 pre-amp and connect to Canon connectors of the Yamaha. This requires a standard RCA to Canon cable for correct connection. Start with this first, if that works OK than try the "Lab" output of your pre-amp, but I am not sure if the Yamaha can handle this or the results of sound quality. Your choice.

I want to bridge 2 adcom GFA 555 amps to my sony DA7ES any suggestions


Obviously you are going to use the Front pre-out's on the Sony to drive the Adcoms. its pretty straightforward, just do not use a speaker that is less than 8 ohms. and make sure that you always have the power switch off on the adcoms, let them sit off for 5 minutes, THEN hit the bridge switch on the back of the adcom's and follow their instructions for bridging. it's pretty easy and tough to go wrong. Good luck...Rob

Bridge adcom gfa-5500


not unless it has a Bridge switch OR you design an inverter circuit for one of the inputs. If it has XLR inputs you can try to invert pins 2 & 3 on one of them, that might work...

How do you connect wiring to bridge an adcom gfa 5300?


The manual does not specify a bridging option.

"Weaknesses:
Not bridgable."

Generally an amp that IS bridgeable uses the positive speaker terminals and some switching method to tell the unit to run as bridged. This is NOT a recommendation to try it on the 5300.

Convert a 4 om amp to play w/8 om speaker


Connect the two speakers in parallel. That will present a 4 Ohm load to the amp.

How do i bridge an adcom gfa 5400


This amp is not designed to be bridged and can not be used in the mode you wish. Sorry, but internal circuit changes would be necesary for the amp to work as a single channel.

Adcom input jack replacement


The input jacks on a 555 are a standard gold plated, high quality jack. looking around the net, you should pay no more than 7-10 dollars each ( or just get originals from Adcom. ). What is your comfort level with electronics?. Can you solder properly?. I cant answer this without more info.....thanks...Good luck...Rob
