Yes, you have wired the bridges incorrectly. You have the xfmr feeding into the +/- of the bridges. The xfmr s/b into the ac's, cathode bands to cap +, anodes to -..

Default wait wait...

fix the bridge orientation or you'll ruin something..

I'm not sure from your response that you understood me..

I said "yes" there is a problem..

The double cathode band part of each bridge must be to the positive of the capacitor bank..

Your schematic does not show that..

Sorry if I'm re-hashing what you already know, but I don't want you to blow sumptin up..

Please remember that the schematic i posted was just a simple layout to ask about the bridge rectifiers layout and wiring. i know how to use them and hook them up i was just asking if it will cause any problems piggy backing 2 of them. i know the pos and neg's of the bridge and the 2 ac's one's. if you want a close up let me know ill show you. : O )

What's the voltage applied and what is capacitors rating? From a pic it looks like polarity of the caps is fine.

The connections in your diagram are obviously wrong, but I hope it's just drawing mistake and not the way you want it done.

So you got 80V across bridges?
