    4 speakers on a 2 channel amp

    Can this be done if all speakers are the same ohms. I have 2 pg rsd separates in the front doors and two alpine type s in the rear doors. I was wondering if I can run all four of these on a two channel amp. If so will I be compromising sq.



    headunit- kenwood kdc x889
    front door- kenwood excelon 170's
    rear door- alpine type s's
    amp- coming soon
    subs- coming soon

    yes, it's fine.
    You end up running the amp at 2 ohms stereo which will get a little more power out of it. THD increases slightly, but not enough to be even close to audible.

    The only drawback is you can't fade.
