bridging an amp

what are the pros and cons of bridging an amplifier?

Much of the disdain for bridging comes from an erroneous view that the two channels must be perfectly matched for gain. They don’t.

The answer is always amp and implementation dependent but in general the advantages of bridging are:

- cancels out even harmonics the harmonics of bad sound
- improves power supply noise rejection
- reduces impact of signal modulation of the power supply
- reduces non linearity from large voltage swings (distortion)

And yes as noted their are downsides but it is not a slam dunk that it sounds worse.
Besides all that has been said from above, this is an fyi, and my opinion. These two Mc amps are superior in sq than other Mc amps ( I have owned them both, and really liked the 7300 ), as they do not use the Autoformers. They happen to be different in sq, from each other. If your son bridges them, using the 2002 on 1 channel and the 7300 on the other channel, they will not be sonically matched, in a 2 channel set up. Enjoy, be well and stay safe. Always, MrD.

I'm glad you cleared that up. They sound pretty stock.. Bridge or not, make noise or not.. This is not a SQ issue, this is lets make NOISE..
I don't have a lot of money to spend, right.. Just a lot of noise.

You know PARTY, DUDE!!! Head banging stuff, NOISE...

If you follow his recent forums.. Just sayin', I have...
