I just got my ce2000 and I want to parallel connect my speakers in bridge mode(sP118 and sp2 by peavey ) what output do I use and what kind of cable is needed? Also, I guess I would just piggy back the speakers from the sub to the 15 or vice-versa correct?

I'm really confused?

the speakers handle 1000w(15)and 1200w(18) respectively

I trying to get the most out of the amp by bridging( I think) without buying another one

help, please

You will need to bridge mono carefully as you can easily overload the amplifier. I would recommend that you connect the each to their own channel. This approach would allow for you to adjust the level for each speaker seperately. Also you would be able to adjust the equalization for each component.

I would recommend that you take a look at the application guide http://www.crownaudio.com/pdf/133472.pdf for some more practical wiring tips. As well the owner's manual http://www.crownaudio.com/pdf/amps/125645.pdf has some suggestions for connections.

Hope that helps.
