    I have a question about Speaker Cables- If I am running a power amp in bridge mono and have a bridge mono cable connecting it to an 8 ohm cabinet with parallel speakon jacks, do I need a special Cable to connect this cabinet to another 8 ohm cabinet or can I use a standard speaker cable? Thanks.

    A standard speaker cable will do.
    Next time better mention which equipment you are using ;)

    The special end of a bridged cable is only at the amp side.

    Bridged mono is used to get a higher voltage into a high impedance speaker. If you have two 8 ohms cabs parallel you don't have a high impedance speaker. Run the amp normal, one cab on each channel.

    What power amp? Is it rated for bridge mode into a 4 Ohm load? If not, don't do it.
