Some amplifiers have circuitry that allows them to be bridged, and some can be damaged if you bridge them. When in doubt, DON'T.

I suggest that you NOT try to bridge it unless the factory manual has specific instructions on how to do it properly.

I read from the links some one said that ,

6 channels @ 135 watts each into 8 ohms
Uses "power steering" technology
2 channels are bridged creates 365 watts per channel into 8 ohms
can be used as a 3,4,5 or 6 channel amp.

Treisara, how would you like to bridge it?
If you want three pairs then #3inv o/p to #6 i/p, #2inv o/p to #5 i/p & #1inv o/p to #4 i/p. Pre-amp outputs go to #1 i/p, #2 i/p & #3 i/p.
Speakers are connected to RED terminals ONLY, 6 -ve 3 +ve, 5 -ve 2 +ve, 4 -ve 1 +ve.

Any questions feel free to email me at gregmay@netzero.net, if you want a pdf of the manual send me your email and when I get back to work next week I will scan it and email the scan to you. Hope that helps.

Greg.

Yes, short coaxial audio cable, inverting output of one channel to the input of the adjacent channel. Don't forget to only use red speaker terminals. I use this configuration to drive my front L/C/R speakers, then I use the 5 amplifier channels of my Harman Kardon to drive my sideL/sideR/rearL/rearR/rearC after I have processed the HK rear L/R channels with a Lexicon CP-1. If you want a copy of the manual I can scan it to a PDF and email it, just send me your email or PM me if you want a copy.
