or series, bridged.. same difference..poisonfist said:Just don't bridge the amp and feed each coil from each channel, problem solved.
poisonfist said:Bridging and feeding a single 4ohm will not increase output over a 2 channel output feeding a 4ohm coil each.
so,TL said:my amp (and others) does 100x2 @ 4 ohm, and 150x2 @ 2 ohm, stereo.
DVC 4 ohm stereo = 200w (100w to each coil)
SVC 4 ohm bridged = 300w
so it will increase output, contrary to your statement
poisonfist said:Well, it is true that the bridging circuitry will allow more power to be drawn by the drivers but the primary form of amplifier's non-linearity and crossover distortion will be worse. It does raise the clipping point but if you think about THD, it's not all that beneficial.
poisonfist said:Oh yeah, I have failed to remember that each amp drives half the load impedance when bridged. But my argument still stands that 4ohm stereo will have less non-linearities and distortion than 2ohm stereo/4ohm bridged. The 50% gain is like what, less than 2dB gain in SPL, I would rather sacrifice that gain to having less distortion.
