Three-channel mode (stereo + mono)
The power amplifier is basically a two-
channel/one-channel bridgeable amplifier,
but three channels can be achieved by
combining the stereo and mono modes
using inductors and capacitors.

Speaker load Impedance
• Inductors (L1 and L2 in the diagrams)

act as low-pass filters. Capacitors (C1

and C2 in the diagrams) act as high-pass
filters. Inductors (L) are used for the

woofer/subwoofer, and capacitors (C)

are used for the high/mid-high.

• Remember when bridging an amplifier it

impedance. Therefore, you must use
speakers that have ratings of 4 ohms or
800
higher. If you use speakers that have
1,250
lower impedance ratings it may cause
2,000
damage to the amplifier.

• When the inductors and capacitors are
connected to the speaker wires, secure or

solder them so they cannot be pulled

loose. Tape or use heat shrink on the

joints to prevent short circuits.

• A multi-channel system can be set up using a
combination of filters. The inductance (L) and
0dB
capacitance (C) will determine the frequency (fc)
that the speaker will reproduce. Refer to the chart

• Use the capacitors specified. Non-polarized

output of the amplifier, it is very important to use
non-polarized capacitors rated at or over 25 V.
This will prevent a safety hazard.
