I bought this for my old Dodge project but I can't find specs for it anywhere. Pioneer lists the X434 on their site but not this one.

I'd like to know the output ratings but more importantly the bridging methods. The silk screen shows 4 channel, then shows "mono" on each set as if bridged, but then shows a larger bridged mode labelled L and R bridged that goes from CH1 bank all the way to CH2 for those bridged channels.

I can post a pic but I want to make sure I have it right for CH1/CH2 for my fronts, an CH3/4 bridged for a sub.

Thanks
Ryan

Awesome, thanks! I will post an exact picture of the screenprint tomorrow. I am very happy to see its 1 ohm stable. I was going to throw it 2 ohms bridged on the back channels anyways, but at least I know if shouldn't blow up right away.

Glad that helps. Amp is from 1998/99 it looks like. Not sure if the caps in the Pioneer amps of that vintage are a concern like on the old PG amps though?

I did open it and give it a visual inspection. No ballooning of the caps so we will see how it goes. I am going to bench test it tomorrow to make sure its working fine before I build the box around it.

Ha, yes, for sure. I lived in Richmond 20 years ago, picked up a SL-170 from their office directly. I see it pop up from time to time, I will keep my eyes open. Cheers.

Kind of odd the way they labeled it, no doubt. Looks like A side: Right positive, Left negative, and B side: Right negative, Left positive probably.

My plan was to run the fronts off A and bridge B for a sub, but those long reaching marks make that more confusing.

I figured it out. There is a 2 or 4 channel switch on the amp. You can run 2 stereo and bridge one in 4 channel mode, or bridge both. But it you switch to 2 channel on the switch the outputs change completely to the outside ones shown. Pioneer must be doing something internally to optimize the output if you want to use this as a two channel. I don't know what, but its odd the outputs change completely. Did a good bench test, sounded great.
