    i just got a swr mo'bass head and im not completely understanding of the bridge/ mono mode and which i should be using. im running through my swr henry 8x8 cab. basically im using just a 1/4 inch speaker cable.
    i have it running into the "right" jack (figuring it doesnt matter which one i use) and i have the switch over to "mono". am i running this correctly? im assuming im pushing the 900 watts this way but i could be totally wrong. also should both voulume knobs to the right be turned up all the way? and the dual mode switch be pushed in or out? im lost:help:

    Using just the right output jack you're only getting 400W @ 4ohms. If you want the full 900W, you need to use the bridge/mono speakon output jack. If your Henry doesn't have a speakon jack, you'll either need to buy a speakon -> 1/4" speaker cable or an adapter.

    Dual mode concerns the preamp and effects loops. I'm not sure how that all works but it has nothing to do with output power.
