  • stereo or bridged mono output
  • Tri-way capable (Tri-Way crossover required)
  • 100 watts x 2 at 2 ohms
  • 200 watts x 1 in bridged mode
  • requires 10-gauge power and ground leads — wiring and hardware not included with amplifier
  • PWM MOSFET switching power supply
  • Intelligent Surface Mount Technology for cleaner sound and greater reliability
  • selectable 85 Hz high-pass/low-pass crossovers, 18 dB/octave
  • preamp outputs
  • speaker-level inputs with SmartEngage (turns the amp on when it detects signal from the receiver, eliminating the need for a separate turn-on lead from your receiver)

    I have a kicker comp s with 4 ohm rating, two posotive and negative conections. and a kicker cx300.1 also with two positive and negative connections, the manual only shows how to wire a 2 ohm sub use one...

    Its depends, if your bridging the amplifier, you will be using one channel(the bridgeable cchannel , your two 4ohms subs will turn into a 2ohm bridge one negative out of one sub and a positive out the other one then you conect the neg to pos between subs (ohms Law). To your bridgeable amp channel, your amp must be 2 OHM stable on the bridge channel.

    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.

    Alpine 3530 Bridgeable 4 channel power amplifier how do i connect the wires/speakers

    Use the left and right to connect the positive and negative to the respective speakers in the right and left. Please make sure of the polarity and so be cautious. next you can connect the sub woofer from the left and right channel as the amp is bridgeable. Use the lead to connect from the R- positve to L negative. test and check the phasing of the speakers, must get good low bass or else you can reverse the sub woofer and check again. If you ae having frint speakers connect accordingly the the other channel. Helpful Good day

    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.

    Bridge a not bridgeable amp

    It will probably blow a fuse or blow up completely.
    When the output stages ar not lifted from ground
    as is the case in a bridgeable amp bridging cannot
    be done.
