Hello, can someone help me, i want to know how to connect the wires if i want to use 2 channel instead of 4. THANKS IN ADVANCE!!!!!!!!!!!!!


You would want to bridge 2 of the left channels and 2 of the right channels, essentially combining the power output of the amp.

This article should help you out:
http://knowledge.sonicelectronix.com/car-audio-and-video/car-amplifiers/how-to-bridge-an-amplifier.html

Essentially you will just be using 2 channels (left, right) instead of 4 (front left, front right, rear left, rear right) essentially combining the power of those outputs. You'll want to check the amp to see if it tells you which of the outputs should be used for the "bridged" method.

Can i bridge a sony xm-1600gsd amp???


try connecting power to one terminal and the negative to the other terminal this will bridge the 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?

Bridging outputs on JBL BP300


Hello paulnkate,

The BP300.1 is a mono (1 channel) amp. You cannot bridge a mono amp. Bridging is a method of combining the outputs of 2 or more channels of a multichannel amp into a single mono load. On your amp you would connect a single sub to one of the +'s and one of the -'s (either one is OK, they are connected internally). The other pair of terminals is just for convenience, making it easier to connect, if you want to power 2 subs.

Hope this helps.

Ok . i have a pair of crossfire subwoofers, @


Your amplifier is 4 channel... and only 2 ohm stereo capable.

You will get the most power putting 1 subwoofer wired in parallel on each BRIDGED channel.

This will give you a 2 ohm stereo load.

Both + on 1 subwoofer to + terminal on amplifier bridged channel 1
Both - on 1 subwoofer to - terminal on amplifier bridged channel 1

Both + on 1 subwoofer to + terminal on amplifier bridged channel 2
Both - on 1 subwoofer to - terminal on amplifier bridged channel 2

To bridge a Kenwood KAC-9102D


Hello laurogleal,

The Kenwood KAC-9102D is a mono amp. There is no bridging. Having two sets of terminals is just a more convenient way of connecting two subwoofers. The amp is stable down to 2 ohms impedance, so it is safe to run 2 4 ohm loads in parallel.

Hope this helps.

Two terminals? bridging theory?


Hello again jm129852,

Having two power and ground terminals allows you to run two smaller wires instead of one big one. It's a convenience. No, you do not have to use them both. They are connected together inside. Yes, you should still use a single fused battery lead. Connect the big wire and fuse holder to the battery and to a distribution block and run the smaller wires from the output side of the distribution block.

When you connect the outputs of a two channel amp to two separate speakers, each speaker gets the power produced by it's channel only. If you are using only one speaker, and the amp is rated to operate bridged, then the speaker will receive the power from both channels, typically twice as much. You do need to be careful when using bridged mode because many amps will only operate safely at a higher impedance when bridged. For example, when operated with both channels connected to separate speakers (not bridged), it may be stable to 2 ohms. But when you connect both channels together (bridged), it is only stable to 4 ohms. Usually, the specifications will tell you the lowest impedance at which the amp should be operated. The specifications for the current RF Punch 500.2 are like this: 125 watts X 2 at 4 ohms; 250 watts X 2 at 2 ohms; 500 watts X 1 bridged at 4 ohms (4 ohm stable in bridged mode). You would NOT want to connect two 4 ohm subs in parallel to this amp in bridged mode. It would result in a final 2 ohm load and the amp would overheat and fail. One 4 ohm sub would be OK, and it would receive the full 500 watts as stated in the specifications. You could connect four 4 ohm subs, two each in parallel to each channel, and the 2 ohm loads on each channel would be OK. Or you could series two of them together for an 8 ohm load, do the same with the other two, and then parallel the two 8 ohm loads for a final impedance of 4 ohms and connect them into the bridged terminals. With DVC subs the connection possibilities get more complex. There are many good impedance calculators online that can help you determine the best wiring solution for various amp/sub combinations. I like the one above at the12v.com web site. Rockford-Fosgate also has one which allow you to select the a number of subs (up to 4), their voice coil configuration (single or dual), and the voice coil impedance. The RF calculator then shows you what configurations are available and what your final load impedance will be.

Hope this helps.

Need proper wiring details.


This is a dual 4 ohm sub. By wiring the terminals in series (one set of + to - from one side to the other) you will have an 8 ohm sub (most folks probably don't want this). By wiring in parallel (+ to + and - to - and connect the - wire to the - terminal on your amp and the + wire to the + terminal on your amp you'll have a 2 ohm sub.

Car amp


if you are talking about speaker terminals i would have to know the model you are referring to. take a look at where the speakers hook up, you should have +-+- if it is bridgeable it will usually have markings below or above those that only show 1 + and 1 - ... connect your positive to the single specified and negative to the other specified... you may or may not be able to bridge it with a wire, without the amp model, i can not say for sure...

if you are talking about actual power connections, then yes you can bridge them, i have an old amp here that has 1 remote, 2 positives and a large negative.. i bridged the positives using 6 gauge wire and used a 2 gauge for the negative...

hope this helps,

If you're bridging the amplifier you can't use a speaker or speaker combination under 4 ohms. If you have 2 4-ohm subs, or a dual voice coil sub that you're trying to run with the bridged amp, that may be your problem. The screws aren't designed to come out of the holes; they're supposed to just loosen or tighten the terminals. A loose wire in a terminal won't cause a protect light on the amplifier unless the wire is shorting to another terminal or to the case of the amp.
