    Don't really understand the question here, center channel is just one channel and you only need one of the two outputs on the amp, so you would only use one RCA. Splitting the RCA and feeding both lines to try and bridge it yourself is a bad idea, if that was the thought; just leave one of the amp inputs and outputs unused.

    It worked but the output is very low.I was gonna use the y adaptor not to bridge but to send a signal to both sides of the amp and then use the speaker outputs to bi-amp the speaker.

    If you really want to bi amp it should work, but why not just raise the volume with the receiver on the center channel. Most receivers support that.

    cnoat, it would be useful to know what amp you are using?
    I know the Carver M-400 "mono" does actually use the 'Y" connection method, and then a specific hookup configuration, using both (+), but I would not try that on a different amp.
    Have you read what your manual says?
