Is it possible to run the xti amps in bridge mode and get signal at both outputs?

It sounds like you want the bridge power but to connect it in stereo or dual mono, am I correct? This can't be done...

No, when you bridge an amp it essentially becomes a single channel amp.

Okay. Thanks. I was hoping to run 2 speakers off of it in bridge mode without having to link from one speaker to another. Would it be acceptable to make a y cable coming out of output 1 and run to the separate speakers that way in bridge mode? I would be fine load wise at 4 ohms.

No, you can either do bridge or stereo, not both.
If you tell us what it is you're trying to do we can assist you much more...

I would be running it in bridge mode. Just running 2 speakers of the #1 output.

You can drive two speakers in parallel off the bridged output but they'll both get the same mono signal, of course.  Using an Y adaptor or going from speaker 1 to speaker 2 daisychained will do the same.  Be careful with a 4 ohms load on a bridged amplifier, this is a tough load for any amp.
