Bridging a 4 channel amp.


Unregistered guest
Can I hook up two 4 ohm signle voice coil 400 watt RMS speakers, to a four channel amp by brigdnig it?

For example: Orion Orion-8004 - Orion 4 Ch. 800 Watt Amplifier
(I havent bought that yet, but I do have the speakers)
Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you.

bridging 2 channels of the amp will give 400RMS @ 4ohms. then you have the other 2 channels to power components.

So to hook up to, id have to bridge 2 channels to each speaker and it will all work fine without any speakers blowing? is Orion an ok brand to get (I am definitely a noob at this, so cut me some slack) cause I hear phoenix gold isnt to good.

also what does @.01% THD mean?
Also what if I ran the speakers off a 4 ohm@ .01% THD 500 RMS

First off, why would you even use a 4channel for subs, they are meant to run internal speakers. But it can be done, my choice a mono block amp stable at 2ohms, like alpine.
