I'm not sure if Lucent has a special bridging procedure, but on most if not all other amps, when you bridge you DON'T connect two terminals together. What you do is instead of using the plus and minus terminals on one channel to one speaker and the other +/- terminals to the other speaker, you will instead use the plus (+) terminal from one channel and the minus (-) terminal from the other channel to drive one speaker and the remaining + and - terminals remain unconnected. Be sure you use the + and - terminals that are marked for bridging. Please note, that when you bridge that your speaker load DOUBLES to EACH channel. In other words, what your amp saw as a 4 ohm speaker going to one channel alone, it now sees as a 2 ohm speaker on each channel when bridged. Be sure you know what you are doing before you bridge and fry your amp. In my experience, if after bridging your amp works fine for about a month and then fries then you bridged wrong and ended up with the wrong speaker load on each of the bridged channels. Be careful. Amps cost a lot to repair. Good luck.

My pioneer receiver powers on but the volume doesn't work. Why is that??


Does this receiver function as only a tuner or does it have speaker outputs? If it has speaker outputs, then there might be switches for turning them on and/or if 5.1 surround sound, sometimes there is a bridge on the back so extra amplification can be added and if that bridge is missing, the tuner signals are sent on to the internal amplifier. On one of mine, that bridge was a 2 wires bent to fit into RCA jacks on the rear of the unit.

Hi i got a kr 9050 receiver blowing 2 amp fuse on power board it appears to be bridge rectifiers can i get these parts these appera to be bad? if i cant get them do you know of ANY REPLACMENT PARTS? ...


The bridge rectifiers used in this unit are not unique and should be available anywhere. I would be very surprised if they were defective. It is most likely blown output transistors that are causing excessive current draw that pops the fuses. Please check those first. If you do not have repair experience, I would suggest that you seek professional assistance. The parts cost typically would be in the $50-$80 range for blown outputs.

I have 2 Carver amps, 1 is a M500T the other is a M500. I wanted to bridge these to refine amp power, increase channels. i don't have a users manual for either and wanted to know can they be bridged and...


I do not believe that those amplifiers have built in bridging circuits. It is still possible to bridge the amplifier by taking one of the input signals, branching it out with a Y cable, and inverting the phase of the signal by 180 degrees. This can be done with an inverting operational amplifier circuit and you may be able to find a device that does such. If you feed an inverted and non inverted signal into each of the inputs, you should be able to use both of the positive terminals on the amplifier and have a bridged amplifier. You still must remember that impedance loads will change and if your speakers are 4 ohms or less, I do not reccomend this. Hope this helps.

How to do Bi wiring in 6.1


Remove the bridging links from the speaker terminals and run two equal lengths of speaker wire from the amp to the speaker. At the amp - speaker terminal, twist two of the same wires together. ( normally marked with a tracer color) Connect these into your left speaker output - terminal and tighten. Connect the two wires to both the negative terminals on the speaker. Repeat the same for the + side. Make sure wires are not shorting across the terminals.

Speaker watt


Hi,

A series parallel network of four (4) 60 watts speakers would give you the same ohmage/impedance but with 240 watts capacity. Just two in parallel would give you half the ohmage/impedance but 120watts capacity or two in series would give you double the ohmage/impedance with again 120watts capacity.

Incidentally, if you bridge the power amp, you double the amp's output but only mono.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Can I run two E.V. Eliminators (1-15 and horn...8 ohms) in series from the bridged output? What my wattage be? I have an EMX5000 powered mixer. Jim Price pocket218@gmail.com


Hi pocket218

Probably not the way to go about hooking it up. running speakers in series is not very practical with PA gear. The connections get messy to make as you need adaptor leads, and it is something that is seldom ever done.. When you use bridge mode it uses left and right channel together to drive the one output, combining the power. Best bet is to run the EMX5000 in stereo mode, and connect 1 speaker to each channel. You may have been trying to reel in extra power from using bridge mode, but the power amp stages in the EMX will only ever be able to deliver the same MAX power whether in bridge or stereo. the best way to get maximum power and sound pressure levels from the unit is to hook TWO speaker boxes to each channel, you get the combined increase in efficiency of the extra speakers and run the output stages at 4 ohms to get absolutely all the power available
If you have any questions about it, feel free to ask me, happy to talk to you further about it.

Nad 218 thx power amp keeps blowing ac plug fuse


Hi there. From memory they had bridge rectifier problems with them going short circuit. Check them first. Sometimes the toroidal transformer can go a shorted turn, in turn blowing primary fuses. try to soft start it whilst it is blowing fuses, Best bet is to make up a special lead that has a 60w light bulb wired in series with the mains power supply(or across the fuse holdwer that is blowing:). Limits the power in the circuit to ... well you guessed it 60 watts.

check em out and let me know.
