Carver M500 amps

What do you guys think about bridging these amps? I sold a pair of them to a buddy and he is bridging them in a HT application, I was wondering if they will hold up ok.

Thanks

Re: Carver M500 amps

As long as it's into an 8 ohm or higher load, no problem. Less than that, & I think he'll have issues if he drives them hard. What speakers?
