Hello, Was looking through the forums and couldn't quite find the answer. I've been using stereo power amps for a long time, but I've only ever used them as split channels. I'm curious about bridging, because I read a lot postings that people seem to be running in bridged mode. I was wondering if there is any downside to running bridged? I never do anything at 2ohm, so only consideration for 4 or 8 ohm. Does bridging shorten the lifespan of the amp? Higher heat or other stress on the components? Thanks.
