If you look at the speaker hookup it will say bridged and have a line going to the two that you should use....If it doesnt then it might be an amp that you cant bridge

How do you wire a qx500.1d to get 1 bridged channel. a shop connected just to the left channel. i thought it needed to be positive from right and negative from left to bridge. i am using 1 fosgate r2d2 10.

A Class D amp only has 1 set of out puts for sub's. so it will only be a left and right pos and neg.As i look your amp it is a 2 channel so both speaker terminals are internally bridged so you can hook the to either set as it will be the same since they are cross overed internally. i found you a good guide for your amp i will include it and should help you greatly. . hoped i helped you. d

Bridging a f15d mono block from solid audio witch outputs do i use

Normally right positive and left neg. Your amp should have indicators on the terminals. Of the four you should have a separate + and - for each channel. This tells you which channel is for pos, and which is for neg. If no markings switch for each one left pos/right neg or right pos/left neg. It will only work on one way.

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?

It has two powers and two groud I went out side groud and out side power is that write.

you need to specify what you are talking about and maybe i can help you but as of now i have no clue. are you talking about bridging an amp to make it run mono or single channel if that is the case you typically use the left channel positive and the right channel negative but on most bridgeable amps it is marked somehow whether it is something like the pos and neg are circled or there is a line drawn on it showing the 2 connecting but regardless it is typically the left pos and right neg. if this is not your question please clarify and i will try helping.

Kenwood kac9152d bridge mono wiring diagram

only using one of the channels for audio and having the rest of the amp wired up as normal should work fine. for example just use the right channel and leave the left unwired.

I bought a 500/1 jl audio amp and also a w7 10 sub

if its cutting off and right back on then check your ground and your power wire makes sure both are connected good and none of your fuse's are blown, either that or you got a wire hooked up backwards in the sub.. but my guess is that the sub is hooked up wrong... that sub should be hooked up in a series or in parallel,

ok if your running just one speaker, it should be hooked up like this and 2 speakers are a different way...

this is parallel :pos to pos , neg to neg, then one wire coming from pos on sub to pos on amp then neg on sub to neg on amp but bridge the amp on your amp should be 2 pos and 2 neg in two different channels take the pos off the sub into the pos on 1 channel and then the neg from sub to the neg on the other channel,

this is series : on the sub it will go pos to neg then the other neg and pos will go to the amp, but make sure the pos and neg r on different sides of the sub, dont hook them both to the same coil

if your need more help give me your email and ill send you a pic of how to do it...
