    So Im thinking of building an extension cab for my MarkBass combo and I kind of have a two part question for anyone that can help. First, when it comes to wattage ratings on speakers would two drivers rated to 150w RMS be a total of 300w RMS if wired in the same cab? Or would it just be 150w total? As for the power amp question, what does "bridged" mean on a power amp with two sides. And why on some power amps can you not "Bridge" them at 4ohms? Sorry these questions may seem elementary but im diving into something I dont have much knowledge in yet. Thanks
  2. I'm not much into bridging.....so I'll leave that one to the experts. BUT U put 2 x 150w spkrs in a box the cab will then handle 300w. AFAIK anyway- always has for me! I bui;t a 2 x 10" with 2x250w Eminence's in it & it handled around 500w pretty well!
