    4 channel help!?

    so i was hoping to get some opinions from you guys.

    first my set up.. i have a fosgate prime 300-4 amp for my components. i thought it would match great with the prime 5 1/4 components i ordered.. well i was pumped because they messed up and sent me powers haha so this is my thing.. i feel like my gain is set really high because they arent that loud.. not as loud as they could be anyway. the set is rated for 75 rms per side.. my amp is rated for 50 rms x 4 at 4ohms. could i bridge and go 150rms by two and set gain really low.. i guess im asking which is less dangerous?

    thanks for any replies.

    dude..that is like common sense..sure, bridge it, if the Comps are 4ohms...and adjust the gain conservatively, if needed

    it would be much better than possibly clipping them with too little power/improper gain settings

    well i mean its not like they arent getting enough power.. i think they just seem low because they arent being used for full range. i was just wondering if its ok to double the recomended. sorry for the noob question
