Default Advice on converting Yamaha B4 stereo to monoblock

I have just converted the XLR output of my Krell KRC-HR preaamplifier to 2 RCA connections. grounding the shielding wire with pin 1.
The B4 is 30W per channel rated for 8 ohm only.
The plan is to use it as a monoblock for 60W in bridged mode. I plan to use XLR to dual RCA for each channel , so two amplifierrs will give me two monoblocks 60W each.

BUT before venturing a test , i want to have opinions regarding system stability and heating??? would it be safe to do so as the amp would now see the 8 ohm load as 4 ohm??

BTW can anyone explain that is there any difference between balanced and bridged?
