SOURCE: i need to no how

I hesitate to answer this question for fear that you will not like the answer even if it is the truth. I have received a bad rating from a couple of people in the past just because the right answer was not what they wanted to hear.

This is a mono sub-woofer amp, which means that it is already bridged internally. You only have one speaker output in this amp, that means that the amp circuit is bridged inside, it is not split into two channels.

To bridge any output, it requires 2 channels, otherwise there is nothing to bridge.

I have been repairing car amplifiers for over 18 years, and I promise you that there is no way to bridge a single channel amp. Bridging means to convert 2 channels into 1 channel. If all you have is one channel, then there is nothing left to bridge.

I hope this explains it for you, if you have any other questions feel free to post them here and I will answer as soon as possible.

And please do not punish me with a bad rating if you do not like the answer, it is the correct answer, and sometimes the right answer is not always what we want to hear, but it does not make it wrong.

SOURCE: 2 MTX Thunder Problem.. Bridging?

Is there a option on the chanels that say ''Bridged''? If so, you can hook the subs up in parellel or series to get different ohm loads. Usually the lower ohms, the more power amp puts out. Those subs can handle 225 watts RMS whitch means the power it can handle constantly. If the amp gives more than 225 watts RMs, you could be at risk of blowing the sub. If you could give me the model # of the amp, I can be of more help.

How do I Bridge MTX Thunder 404 400 watts into one channel


The mtx thunder is a 4 channel amp. 4 channels can't be bridged to 1 speaker. You can only use one side of that amp to bridge your speaker. Unfortunately your now only using half your amp.

I have 2 different subs in one box, a 12" MTX thunder and a 12" Kicker CVR. the kicker is a dual voice coil while the MTX I dont believe is. Can I use one amp for this set up? And how would it be wired?


im guessing both speakers are 4 ohms ..mtx 4ohms and kicker dual 4ohms..now if your amp can go down to 1 ohm wiring the kicker dual coils in parallel (2ohms) and the mtx connected together (4ohms) should leave you with a final impedance between 1 and 2 ohms ...i suggest you use one or get another

MTX Thunder problem


Make sure that your connection at the battery is still good-sometimes the wire corrodes up front when your system is installed for a long time-so check that out and of course the fuse that you installed a foot away from the battery so that you dont burn your vehicle down if a short occurs somewhere down the line
