Okay, first of all the obligatory apology if a similar thread exists elsewhere. I hate duplicate threads as much as the next guy, but I searched for a thread which starts from square one for bridging, but only came up with threads which begin decidedly higher than square one. So here's the deal: I have never bridged an amp and I am utterly clueless as to how to go about doing so. I am looking to bridge a Carvin FET-1000 power amp into one 8ohm 4x10 Avatar using my Trace Elliot AH200 (with 12 band) as the preamp (while using one of the channels on the TE to run direct to an 8ohm 2x10 cab. The power amp itself features 2 1/4" outputs and two outputs to be used for bridging which resemble your standard stereo speaker hookups (yes, I am THAT friggin' clueless!!). My questions are as follows: - What the hell is a "speakon"? - How do I bridge this thing using those speaker outputs mentioned above? - What additional accessories do I need to be able to do this? - Who invented liquid soap and why? Apologies again, both for the possibility of duplicating and for my sheer, utter and embarrassing ignoarance on this subject. I've simply never done this before. Many thanks!
