i'll be playing a QSC PLX 1602 into a Mesa/Boogie 18''. the cab is 8 ohms, and says 'power capacity 400 watts' (i'm guessing that's RMS rating). so, if i run through a single channel, i get 300 watts, which is pretty much groovy. however, if i run in bridged, i get 1100 watts. now, i did do a search, and i think i learned a little, but i can't afford to replace this equipment if i screw it up so i want to be totally confident in what i'm doing. would it be dangerous to run in bridged mode if i'm careful of the volume? i know headroom is good, generally speaking, and i know the amp can handle more than mono mode can give, so... how can i get the best sound and not break my equipment?
