    You can still run bridged amps in stereo mode, but it only tends to be the higher-end stuff which does this.
    Give me some rough idea of a price and I will give you some suggestions... Whereabouts would you be looking to buy it?? US, Holland, UK, Europe....

    ProTONEd - Buying an amp which is rated at a higher power than the speakers it is intended to run is good practice in the ICE world. This allows you to run the amp with the gains set lower than on a less powerful amp, so therefore running the unit at less of a percentage of its potential maximum. This is called giving a speaker "headroom" and will provide a better quality sound in the long run with the ability to run louder for very short periods of time if necessary.

    You are right DaveP. But what i meant to say is, that when you are dealing with different types of speakers hooked up to one amplifier, you'll have to balance everytihing out well.
    Why is it drug addicts and computer afficionados are both called users?

    Currently : Audi A6 - no install

    Second install : VW Passat '97 CarPC
    First install : '87 Audi 80 CarPC

    @DaveP: Thanks for good info! Seen the Pioneer+specs? you think that will run in bridged stereo mode?
    Anyways, I'm spending 200 european dollars max. To order it in Germany seems to be the cheapest. No extra tax and they ship it cheap.

    BTW. I like the concept of headroom.
