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.

I've got a pair of these MTX's subs powered from a Fusion 450 watt 2-channel amp. For the price, they are great. By the way, they are 4-ohm.
My first suspicion would be that something in the first incorrect wiring damaged either the amp or the subs. Can you explain specifically what the "installing the subs incorrectly" means? Was the amp output shorted out at any time or was it operated without a load? Either of these conditions will fry an amp and sometimes, the protection circuitry doesn't work either.
First make sure that your amp is still working. Check both the primary power fuse, usually located near the vehicle battery, and the fuses on both sides of the amp. Make sure that when you turn the system on, the power light comes on steady (blinking is protection mode). Test your subs one at a time on a speaker output.

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.

You need to contact MTX tech support before the warranty runs out. You'll probably have to get an RA number to send it back.
