    Old-school Orion 425 Hcca ???

    Hi I plan on running 4 5 1/2's speakers with my four channel amp is this Orion way overkill or should I use it? I could just use it but it's a really big and like almost 2 feet long And will I be able to get the power out of it if I was just running for speakers off of it

    Thats a sick amp, man. It would be tame enough at four ohms to run like that. Kind of a waste of an amp, though...

    Re: Old-school Orion 425 Hcca ???

    Ya That's what I thought it could be a waste of an amp should I try to run 4 5 1/2 speakers back and 4 in front somehow if it was you would you sell it and just buy a small four channel amp or what are my options and I'm new to all this thanks. Was if made for that of was it made to run some crazy mids I have an 88 Mazda plus cab and I plan on running 2 Sa 8 v2's or 1 Sa 12 with my Orion 250 Hcca. About 1000 want at 1/2 ohm I have only about 2 1/2 cf and I will have to find a crazy way to mount the amps because I need to keep the seats for my kids so we can go to shows I cut down the 2 stock rear seats about 6" each so I have about 14" between them

    I only get back the power if I run the amp at 1/2 ohm so if I ran that I really be able to get the power Because I would be at 1 ohm per side right
