be done.

How to bridge a 1 channel 1000 punch 55amp

You can not bridge a 1 channel amp. Bridging is when you combine the output of a bridgeable two channel amp into one channel, typically to power a sub woofer.

How do i bridge all 4 channels on the jensen 400 watt 4 channel lxa amp ?

  • This amp is not "bridgeable" at all. You will either blow the front end or blow the low end voice coil in your sub.

Can an explore 4020 amp be bridged?

Well if it's a multi channel amp it can definately be bridged. Yes, and from what I've read it is actually bridgeable at 2 ohms per 2 channels.

Can i bridge the 4 ch. amp to 2 chnl.

Hello bdawson,

Maybe. Some, but not all, 4-channel amps can be bridged. You'll need to provide a specific brand and model number for a more definitive response.

On many bridgeable amps, the connections are shown right on the output terminals, usually the "+" of one channel and the "-" on another channel. The connection diagram in your user manual may also show which channels are bridgeable and the appropriate connections. Some amps may support what they call "tri-mode", powering both full-range speakers and subs at the same time.

Using a multi-channel amp with the channels bridged to power subs is a compromise. While you'll get an increase in power, it usually isn't as much as you would get from a monoblock. And fine tuning for the best sound is more complicated, balancing the filters and crossover so that the correct frequencies are sent to the appropriate speaker.

Hope this helps.

Ccan it be bridged with a 5 ohm subwoofer?

Hello cameron_cran,

The information I found on the amp is that is a 2-channel and is bridgeable. It is stable in bridged mode to 4 ohms. You should be able to bridge a single 4 ohm sub without damage to the amp.

Hope this helps.

Bridgeable vs not bridgeable

All amplifiers are bridgeable. The bridge setting is for driving a large speaker by using the power output of 2 or more channels. The power will be summed if a bridge is made.
For example, if you have a 800W, 4 channel power stage, you can connect 2 component speakers in the channels 1 and 2 and bridge the channel 3 with the 4 to drive a subwoofer.

Is it not bridgable

This amp isn't bridgeable. It's a mono amp (only one channel). You need two independent channels to bridge. Some mono amps are bridgeable if you have two identical amps but I don't think Kenwood recommends that with this amp.

La1498 amp

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.
