    Can you run a bridged 4 ohm load with this amp? All the specs I have seen have not listed a 4 ohm bridged load.....

    No.

    4 ohms a side in stereo or bi-amp; 8 ohms bridged.

    Well, that kinda stinks.....guess I will just have to go with a navagator, and a power amp to get the power I am looking for.

    PS, I am in the market for a used WP-100 if anyone knows of some deals.

    Thanks for the reply Gard, as always...you are the man!

    You can always run a 4-ohm cab on each side for your full 800 watts. As Gard said, you can do it stereo or bi-amped.

    Thanks for the suggestion munji, but I already bought my cabs....a 115T, and a 410XLT....both are 8 ohms.
     
  6. I know this thread is kind of old, but I got an interesting email from Bergentino yesterday ... not something I would try, but it seems some people do:

    Hi Greg,

    Thank you for the email and interest in our NV610 cabinet. Unfortunately,
    they are only available in 4 ohms. However, I know if some people who have
    bridged their WT800 into 4 ohms without any problems. You may want to consult
    Eden on this, but the NV610 is a minimum 4 ohm load and may not be a problem for
    your amp.

    Please let me know if I can assist you further.

    Regards,

    Jim Bergantino

    That's news! However, I'd bet there are many more who've bridged their WT800 into 4 ohms WITH problems. I'm not going to "guinea pig" my WT800.
