1.What is the bridge mode for power amplifier amplifier
Bridge mode is a connection method for power amplifiers in the professional audio field.The bridge connection of the audio power amplifier is to push the output ends of the two amplifier circuits into a group of loads (speakers or speaker systems) at the same time.
Most professional audio amplifiers support bridging. Switch the state of the amplifier to bridge mode (BTL), and then the speaker wiring is connected across the output stage (positive) of the two channels, and the speaker is not grounded. As for the phase positive and negative, the power amplifier will have the positive and negative poles of the BTL.
When bridging, the audio waveforms output by the two amplifier circuits are inverted and loaded on the speaker at the same time, so that the load has twice the audio voltage, and the power is increased by four times (under the condition that the ideal current is sufficient, and the load impedance is the same .However, due to power limitation, the current cannot keep up, so the bridge is often not suitable for impedances below 8 ohms, so the output power is generally doubled)
Most professional performance, KTV and other power amplifiers support the bridge mode. After the power amplifier is adjusted to the bridge state, the speaker does not need to be grounded (the black negative terminal is empty), and the speaker wiring is connected across the two red output stages. The red terminal will indicate the phase of the bridge (that is, the positive and negative poles).
2.Why do we need to bridge?
A. In the early power amplifier products, due to the limitation of component parameters, a single channel could not achieve high power output. Using the bridge mode can alleviate the desire for high power output;
B. When the single channel power of the power amplifier is not enough to drive high-power size speakers (such as dual 18-inch ultra-low speakers), the bridge mode needs to be used to meet the high-power requirements of the speakers;
C. In order to save costs, the higher the single-channel power amplifier, the more expensive the price, the use of bridge mode can meet the high-power output;
D. There is a certain distance between on-site wiring, a large number of speakers and a large power demand, and the environment is relatively special, the bridge mode will be used to promote multiple high-power speakers.

4. What is the bad influence on the speaker when set bridge mode?
A. The power amplifier bridge is often used for high-power low-voice speakers.Theoretically speaking, it has an impact on the sound quality, but the human ear can't hear it. If you use a bridged amplifier to push the full range, the sound from the speaker will make people feel very refreshing. Just grasp it, usually it is It won't burn.
It is common to burn speakers in a disco. The main reason is that the power configuration is not good, or the pressure limit is not adjusted properly, and the DJ mixer level is at the end, the input level of the mixer is at the end, and the output power is at the end. If the level is less than -10dB, it will burn.
B. Choosing a power amplifier bridge to push large speakers is the next step in system applications, and it is a real trick. Theoretically, the power is doubled and it can be advanced.
However, users have overlooked a very important question. Theoretically speaking, the power amplifier bridging refers to the situation that the technical parameters of the two channels are completely the same, but it is completely impossible in practice. Even the top foreign power amplifiers are very It is difficult to make sure that the channel is at the mercy.
Therefore, it is improper when the bridge is connected because the power mismatch causes the horn to burn. The first thing is the crossover distortion caused by the bridge and the imbalance of the parameters of the two channels. Therefore, the improper bridge is the power mismatch. The main cause of the burning of the speaker is still the crossover distortion caused by the bridge and the imbalance of the parameters of the two channels.
Bridging is like having your legs and hands tied together. Once you use it, you must maintain the harmony of your actions, otherwise you will make mistakes.

C.The double "18" or double "15" or double "12" ultra-low sound is usually 4 ohms. As long as the function can be bridged under 4 ohms, there is no doubt about it, and it has nothing to do with the working method. The reason why the power amplifier is so powerful is that the internal circuit is bridged.
Ultra-low sound power Generally speaking, the power amplifier can be 3 times the extra power of the speaker.
There are many factors to burn the speakers, in addition to the hardware itself, it is usually caused by improper operation of the personnel.
