Bridging Rachael
10/25/13 at 20:41:36
 
I purchased another Rachael used and am thinking about bridging them and never bridged before.

I found this in the Rachael manual:

"You can bridge both channels into one by simply connecting the two positive speaker
binding posts together. The negative posts are already connected together internally."

Do I need something to split the signal to both input jacks on each amp?

I'm guessing you would need to Y the inputs the same when you bridge a Zen se84.  I bet if you tried only one side, the volume would be weak and get louder when you plugged in the other side of the Y.

Agreed - Rachel is an EL34 based Zen amp - so it would make sense you'd need a Y-splitter just like on the SE84.

I can make you one if you decide that's the route you want to go.

I have a couple that I can use, but they are pretty cheap.  If it shows promise, I may send you a note.
