Question about Pioneer GM-X962 Car Audio Amplifier
I want to wire 2 infinity reference series subs to my alpine mrv 1000 amp. i want to connect them to bridge them to get them to hit much harder. but when i do this the amp shuts off and over heats? i have 5 gauge power wire. 5 gauge ground wire about a foot and half long. what can i do to fix this?
It is simple. The MRV1000 can be bridged but only to a 4 ohm load. I am assuming your subs are 4 ohms and run fine stereo, but if you bridge them it will show a 2 ohm load bridged to the amp which means 1 ohm per side. The amp is not stable at the impedance. Get 2 ohm/8 ohm subs or "Dual 4 ohm voice coil" Subs and it will crank fine.

Did you read your instruction manual. does it says "it could be bridged to other amp"?. you can't make a bridge to amplifier that is not bridgeable. bridging an amp is a way which it is made through transistor type ampilfier by bridging more transistor inside and more voltage is required for bridging.
I don't know if we could do to an IC type amplifier. ask an experts about bridging IC types how to bridge maybe they know how.
and if you had an successful bridging, you may have a problem through your speakers, they may hit hard but you will experience some errors through your speakers and easy to worn.
