Anyone Successfully Bridge an M1.5t?

Post by Tour2ma » Tue Mar 02, 2004 2:41 am

I swear that when they were new that the ads sited a bridged output stat of 1500 W.

May be wrong, however, as there are no instructions (or specs) in the manual and a call to Carver (Sunfire) only produced the comment, "We do not recommend bridging the 1.5."

Anyway, if anyone has successfully done so, please advise.

perfect question that i always had. my 1.5t gets pretty darn hot powering electrostats, i have to lift it up and have a fan blow on it. BUT THE SOUND, wow is it good. i was told by carver that the closest amp to it, that could be bridged was the m1.0t. not really my choice. so i never have tried.

The 4.0 is closer and bridgable...

I really don't need to bridge my 1.5's, but I'd like to for shits and giggles...

I find the two very similar, but my 1.5 was upgraded by Carver years ago when it went in for repair... Came home sounding noticably sweeter.
