    Is it possible to bridge a 4 channel amp @ 100 each to [email protected] to 1 sub? :confused:

    No. You cannot make a 4 channel amplifier into one. What you can do is buy a subwoofer that has a dual voice coil configuration and then bridge both pairs of outputs so that you now have 2 channels. You can then drive each voice coil with each bridged pair. You need to make sure the gains are pretty close though.

    Also, technically, it may be possible to run the 4ch amp as a 1ch amp, by running the channels in series. But I know of no one who has done that yet.

    Be more specific, why did it not work? Also, your amplifier might not be bridgeable.

    no, its defiently bridgeable, it shows u which input to bridge (- +). well it worked, but the bass wasnt loud, it just sputtered so we just kept it bridged using 200w to both coils. we were clueless.
