Most of these 17W car amplifiers are already bridged internally, so no further bridging is posible.

i take it the 17 watt specials your talking about are the one chip wonders. if they are you can't bridge them. the entire component array is on the chip in's and outs as well

As I stated before, they are already bridged. Often they are also advertised in the North American market as 20W or 25W per channel. Typically a small case, with or without an EQ on the front.

How's that for dating myself?

the amp i have is a 4 channel amp. it says 50w x4 but the specs say 17.4w rms - trust me, they are not 50w rms amps!!! so why the different wattages?? Just as a matter of interest.

as for my other amp, i think im just gonna get a more powerfull car amp - it end up being cheaper.

thanks a million for all the advice

50 x 4 means 50 watts PEAK per channel, not rms

It's all marketing and what they can get away with.
