Why do my speakers sound bright when I bridge my amp but not in stereo?

I recently bought a Mosconi AS100.4 to run my coax speakers. I plan on buying speakers in the next month or two. I never had a 100 watts on a set of speakers, I always had 150 or more.

After I switched the amp out I noticed when I turn up the volume to higher levels it would get brighter. I though the amp was clipping so I used my distortion detector to double check the gains. All clear.

Then I was thinking the speakers where not getting enough power so I decided to bridge it, 310x2 @4Ohm.

I noticed overall the speakers where brighter?

Is this because the crossovers couldn't handle the power?

Peek is 200watts on the speakers.

Im worried that if I get new speakers and plan to bridge the amp they will also be bright.

Thanks guys.

is this at all volume levels or just high volume?

Being coax the tweeter is most likely playing at a a lot higher level than the mid. Meaning it has a higher sensitivity than the mid. Once you upgrade the comps will have better attenuation. Well most likely anyway. If they are designed competently.

It does seam to increase as the volume raises. Higher Sensitivity of the tweeter makes sence. I have the Polk momo coaxs. I'm thinking of going with illusion audio seperates.
