    Icon14 4 channel too much power?

    So I'm looking into a 4 channel amplifier now. My front speakers are 25w rms and rears and 60w rms... 4in front 6.5in back. If I got an amp that put out 50-60w rms @4ohms per channel, would it be ok to run the fronts on that with low gain? Or would it still give it too much power? I dont want to blow the speakers.

    So is it possible to set the gains low enough that it might only be giving the speaker say.. 25w rms in front? hah. Thats what Im asking, or is it always giving out the 60w rms?

    Nope it is all dependent on the settings of you HU and pre amp voltage and what the gain is set to.

    There is a tutorial on gain setting, so you know approx what wattage you're putting out.
