    I am soon to have a used amp in front of me with no user's manual. I can't find one on the Stewart site. Does anyone have a link to a PDF online? Or just tell me what I need to know to configure it for bridged mono? Could be as simple as using the red pair of female banana plugs, or not.
  2. On my PA1000, the two red posts are used when in bridged-mode.

    Got the manual in front of me.

    Bridged Operation:

    You will need either a banana plug or bare wires to make the proper connections.

    Before converting to bridged mode, turn the amp off. Set the Mono/Stereo switch in the Mono position. You have to use the Channel 1 input, as Channel 2 is disengaged in Mono mode.

    Connect the positive terminal of the speaker to the red output of Channel 1, and the negative terminal of the speaker to the red terminal of Channel 2. Make no connections to the Ground terminals.

    Incidentally, I have emailed Stewart a couple of times with questions, and they were always helpful and quick to reply. Try Faye at faye@stewartaudio.com
