    think of "stereo" like having two amps for each side, left and right. "bridged mono" means you put those two amps together to blast your ears out, but then you can't use stereo fx and all the other stuff that comes from using a stereo amp (i have no idea on what else).

    hope that helps.

    i want to have power and then some for a rack mount system. I've got SVT 8x10 that can handle a 1000 watts. Im gonna get a sansam rbi. I just need to know if this is gonna get me all the power I need.

    I hope you have a good set of ear plugs. If you succeed in getting anywhere near 1000W, it will blow anything in front of it off the stage. :D

    Yes, it will work. As I know SVT 8x10" are 4ohm impedance, so on bridged mode you put 830W inside which is more than enough for that box.
