Parallel bridges?

I'm guessing threadstarter is trying to make some kind of dual-mono supply without the additional transformer.

Although I'm not sure how having separate bridges will help apart from more capacity and better isolating between the two capacitor banks... wait... that's a good enough reason.

Some PC power supplies with multiple 12v rails have a separate rectifier and filter stage for each rail, but sharing the transformer. (The best ones have completely separate switching supplies for each rail, most simply have separate post-filters, and the cheapest ones lie and do not really have multiple rails.)
