Not all amps can be bridged together. If the amplifier is capable of being bridged with another amp, the owner's manual will explain how to do it.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

I have Sony xm-2165gtx amp 165 watt rms x 2 at 4 ohm 200 watt x 2 at 2 ohm 400 watt x 1 bridge output at 4 ohm stereo or bridge mono output 4 ohm stable in bridge mode this mean can't go lower then 4 ohm...


You can't bridge that amp onto a load lower than 4 ohms. So you can't bridge that amp onto two 4 ohm subs. To get the most power out of your subs is easy. Run one channel to one sub and the other channel to the other sub. 165 watts RMS is plenty for most subs.

JL Audio Amp. My amp all of the sudden started cutting in and out. It's an older amp and I've never had issues with it before. I've checked all the wiring and the fuse it all seems fine. Any...


you need to determine what impedance the amp is running at ,how many spekers ,most 2 channel amps will only run 2 4 ohm subs per channel and only 1 4 ohm speaker in bridge ,Basically if you have 2 4 ohm speakers bridged at the amp it will usually cut in and out .Some amps will not do this for a while and will work for a while at low impedance but once they get older and hot and cool off many times they will then only work for the intended ohm load ,Do you have 2 speakers ,if so make sure 1 is on left channel and 1 is on 2nd channel (should not cut off ) if it is a mono amp ,make sure you are only running 2 4 ohm subs and not dvc speakers (these will run 1 ohm and shut the amp down ) there are ways of wiring more speakers or dvc speakers ,I can explain but I need to know what product you have .

It was laying on the workbench in my kids stole the fusesWhat size fuses go in a koiiler model 9696 1000watt Max amp? To bridge this 4ch to 2 on the high input side. do you have to tie the input side??...


NO dont tie the inputs. Inputs stay just as they are. Outputs are where the bridging happens.
You amp specs are:
XM-9696 C/W 4 CHANNEL POWER CHROME/WHITE AMPLIFIER
MAX OUTPUT POWER (2 OHM): 200W X 4 = 800W
POWER OUTPUT: 90W X 4 @2 OHM (360W) LESS THAN 0.5% THD
60W X 4 @4 OHM (240W) LESS THAN 0.3% THD
BRIDGED 180W X 2CH @4 OHM

So lets take 800 watts and divide by 13Volts DC = 61.54 Amps
So if there are 2 fuses start with 30 amp. To play it safe you could use 25 amps and if they blow try a 30. Now if the 30 blows you may need to take
another look at your wiring. I think 30 will be fine though.

Hello, can someone help me, i want to know how to connect the wires if i want to use 2 channel instead of 4. THANKS IN ADVANCE!!!!!!!!!!!!!


You would want to bridge 2 of the left channels and 2 of the right channels, essentially combining the power output of the amp.

This article should help you out:
http://knowledge.sonicelectronix.com/car-audio-and-video/car-amplifiers/how-to-bridge-an-amplifier.html

Essentially you will just be using 2 channels (left, right) instead of 4 (front left, front right, rear left, rear right) essentially combining the power of those outputs. You'll want to check the amp to see if it tells you which of the outputs should be used for the "bridged" method.

Having problems with the installation of the brutus 2008d amp in my truck. how many channels is it? how do i connect the subs? do i connect the rca cables from the radio to the input or output.


The rca cables from your stereo go to the "input" part of the amp. Now, if there are four speaker connections in your amp, then it's a 2 channel. If you have eight speaker connections then you have a four channel amp. Note, some amps can be briged to provide more power to the speakers. On a two way amp(2 speakers), the connections can be briged to only one speker providing more power, usually whatever the amp power rating is, say a 500watt amp will put all 500 watts to that speaker. The same goes for a four way amp(4speakers), can be bridged to two speakers(250watts per speaker). Hope this helps.

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?

Bridging outputs on JBL BP300


Hello paulnkate,

The BP300.1 is a mono (1 channel) amp. You cannot bridge a mono amp. Bridging is a method of combining the outputs of 2 or more channels of a multichannel amp into a single mono load. On your amp you would connect a single sub to one of the +'s and one of the -'s (either one is OK, they are connected internally). The other pair of terminals is just for convenience, making it easier to connect, if you want to power 2 subs.

Hope this helps.

Hi Trim God,

 

I do not reccommend that you push the Pioneer speakers over 100 watts.  The jenson will already drown the car with bass through your pioneers so much you will want to turn off the bass boost when playing some low bass hip hop songs. It changes from one venue of song to another, so I just keep the jenson bass boost off and use my head unit to adjsut the sound to fit my listening prefences. I am telling you man, you will be blown away .  Hook up the pioneers straight to the Channels,. do not bridge.  I put Subs in my truck though.  I used the Pass output to send the audio to me Jenson 2 Channel 600W amp. I drive one 10 inch enclosed JBL Class A/B Sub. I bridged the output of the 600 W amp to the 10 inch sub  in my Z28.  The pioneers never get drowned out.  I did smoke my 2 channel Amp one time. and also took out a MTD 10inch sub. I am talk shooting flames and smoked the whole car up. I think if you bride the XA4150 to the pioneers, you will have the flaming smoke problem in no time.

ASSUMING that the amp is OK with a 2ohm load then you "set it up" by the configuration of the speakers you use. Two 4 ohm speakers if parallel will give you a 2 ohm load. However, if you are bridging the ouputs then a single 4 ohm speaker bridged between the two outputs will put a 2 ohm load on each channel. Be very careful if you are bridging the outputs that you know what you are doing. On average, when bridged wrong (too much load) the amp will last about one month before it fries. Get some help if you are bridging. Be sure not sorry.
