Mono signal out to sound bar

I would like to send a "mono-fied" signal to a Polk Audio s35 soundbar.
The soundbar has one positive and one negative terminal.
I would LIKE to have the information from both L and R channels fed
to that soundbar...reduced to mono, since it has only one set of terminals.
I have been told to NOT wire together, two speaker leads (L and R channel)
to achieve mono. I have heard that it messes with the amp and might actually reduce the whole amp to mono.
Aside from switching all signals to mono, system-wide, on the amp
OR choosing just ONE of the stereo channels to send to the soundbar, what choice have I?
Would I have to have another amp to power the sound bar?...with an RCA cable from tape-out on my main amp, into
an AUX-IN into the second amp ...with that amp switched to MONO to drive the soundbar?

Tell us the receiver you want to use.

Why do you want to use a soundbar as a mono speaker?
