    Default Two amps into one speaker ?

    If you have a powered sub that powers two passive satellite tops can you feed that into a single top instead of two ?
    I'm looking to bridge tops amps rather than just use a single channel.

    What is the reason behind doing that ?

    Would it not be easier to run in mono, then just use one feed ?

    Because the subs are 1000w with 2x 200w output for tops , the top speakers i want to use are 500w

    It depends largely on the construction of the amp inside the box. You can probably do it, but I'd think that you'd need to invert the phase of one of the channels to do what you want and there's a good chance that the signal to the sub sums the two channels. So, feeding an inverted signal to one channel would result in the channels cancelling each other out and the sub producing zero output.

    Other options.... speakers with dual voice coils?
