If the amp is a chip amp, the amp is already bridged. Measure the DC voltage on the speaker output terminals (amplifier on, no audio input, meter set to DC volts, black lead on chassis ground, red lead on the speaker terminal). If the voltage on the speaker terminal is ~1/2 of B+, it's a chip amp and is already bridged.

What you are suggesting does not even sound like it would be worth the trouble to be honest. You may have a sense of accomplish for one day, but then you will be dissapointed.

A real amateur enthusiast!
