Ok, i have no idea what this means. i did a search but didnt get much back. help!
I think bridging a power amp usually refers to combining the left and right channels of a power amp and combining them into a single channel. This (about) doubles the wattage going to the single channel. So if your amp has the ability to drive two different channels, it MAY have the ability to combine these into a single, more powerful channel. I don't think you can do this 'manually', it has to be designed into the amp circuitry.
From the Crown amp manual, "Turn the Bridge Output switch to ON to have a single input that feeds to a single output with twice the voltage of Stereo Mode. Use this configuration if you want to give up stereo capabilities in order to drive your speakers louder."
hope this helps.
