Why don't you just try it and see for yourself, you already have the amp sitting around!

Don't have the signal splitter or the extra speaker cable yet. Am in the process of buying interim parts now, but wanted to get the input from those who know before I spend some bank on some quality cable and splitter ;-) Also, what I really wanted to know was if two 125watt amps can equal one 250 watt amp.
My guess is it'll be close enough. Ratings aren't exact. Brystons are supposed to test higher than they're rating, particularly the 4b. I used to use a pair of 3b's for my fronts (as monoblocks), which allegedly is supposed to produce the same power rating as one 4b (which I'm using now). However, the 3b's clipped at levels the 4b doesn't. That said, I bet by bridging 2 125 watt channels, you'll get close enough that boosting or subtracting via processor will be minor (and hopefully therefore not annoying). BTW, the 5-channel can't be made to bridge 2 channels without an interconnect splitter? I would have thought you could just tell it (via some switch or other) that you wanted a channel bridged into another one, the way you can do with most 2-channel amps. More fool me, I guess.
Dbwl- I don't think Argent is talking about bridging. If so, I think it still depends on the circuit design. Not all amps double up when bridged. But anyways, the ? is about bi-amping. With respect to bi-amping, I have no idea what that would mean in terms of power, I think what it would do is increase the dynamic power (headroom) available, rather than the continuous (RMS) power, but I am really just a rank amateur as far as circuitry is concerned. BTW, many (most) amps cannot be bridged, at least as they come from the factory.
From what i understand, the DigiFlex designation is not a Canare term but rather a name given to a Canare cable assembly by a third party cable maker.
I have been looking for this specific cable but can not find it because of the nomenclature.
Do you know, specifically, which Canare cable (i.e. LV-61S, LV-77S, L-4CFB, etc.) is used in this assembly?
Also, can you tell me where i can get it?
