Default Bridging class AB amp and keeping full range

I've done some searching but haven't found any answers. I'm wondering if I bridge my two channel Kenwood KAC 7202 amplifier if I will still have full range output. I'm guessing that since it is a kenwood amplifier and not something of higher quality that I will lose full range. I'm thinking that bridging this amplifier will give asymmetrical clipping. Can anyone confirm this?

Bridged amplifiers by definition have symmetrical clipping.

By any reasonable defintion of full range, you will not lose it.

When you say range, are you referring to bandwidth? The most notable detriment to losing BW is by increasing the gain. When you bridge the amp, the gain will remain the same.
