Ok To Bridge Left & Right Channels Together?

    I have two BOSE "wave" radios, and I would like to use them both to listen to my mp3 player. Basically what I want to do is tie the left and right channel inputs of one radio together, tie the left and right channel inputs of the other radio together, and use one radio (with both its channels) as the "left" channel of the whole system and use the other radio (with both its channels) as the "right" channel.

    Will this work? Do I need to capacitive couple the channels together or provide some other form of DC isolation or is it OK to hook it up the way I have it drawn in the attached schematic?

    TIA, and happy weekend!

    I would use a resistor (1k?) on each stereo output so that left does not directly drive right and vice versa.

    Not necessary when connecting two inputs together.

    And, for the OP: that is not what bridging means.

    Sorry about getting it wrong, I saw an arrow pointing upwards TO IPOD.
    I would not have been mislead if the arrow pointed downwards and labeled FROM IPOD.
