    Will This Amp Work For My Setup?

    I already own RAINBOW CS 265 PROFI VANADIUMs and an ARC AUDIO FD4150 to power it. The arc is a 4 channel amp. Is there anyway I can use it to power both speakers AND a sub while providing enough power to the Rainbows?

    The Rainbows are rated at:
    • Peak Power: 180 Watt
    • Power Rating: 120 Watt
    • Minimal amplifier power: 75 Watt
    • Sensitivity: 90 db 1W/1m
    • Impedance: 4 Ohm

    The amp is rated at:
    • 80 Watts x4 @4 ohms
    • 160 Watts x4 @2 ohms
    • 320 Watts x2 @4 ohms bridged
    • Transient distortion: < 0.005% @4ohms

    The IDQ 8" sub is rated at:

    2 Ohm Impedance: 1/4 Ohms
    • Power Handling 150W RMS/300W MAX
    • Power: 50-350W RMS

    The IDQ 8" sub is rated at:
    4 Ohm Subwoofer Impedance: 2/8 Ohms
    • Power Handling 150W RMS/300W MAX
    • Power: 50-350W RMS

    Is there anyway to have it power the speakers and one of the ID subs (if so which one, the 2 or 4 ohm one?)

    What would be the breakdown of how many watts the sub and speakers receive? I do not want the speakers to be underpowered.
