    really stupid question about 4ch amps

    ok, so im about to pick up a 4 channel amp if i can find one for a decent price. the amp will be used to run 4 componant/coaxial sets(depending on what i decide to go with). the only problem im running into is the fact that componant sets have a crossover and 2 seperate speakers. so does that qualify them as needing 1 channel per speaker? or 1 channel per crossover? my intention is to run a componant sets up front with coaxials in the rear, i just want to make sure i can power all speakers with the single 4 channel amp...

    not a stupid question at all. the answer is one channel per crossover.



    Things to look forward to:
    (2) 10" or 12" imperium audio designs subs
    set of PHD MF 6.5" comps
    Completely seal off and deaden my doors
    aquire a 2k amp
    aquire a 2 channel amp for front stage

    Yep....what he said...the comps.come with a crossover to split the highs and lows.the co ax will most likely have the crossover built into it.

    Matt
    You can go ahead and install the amp for now, even before you get the speakers. A lot of stock systems benefit from extra amplification. Plus, when it's time to put in the new speakers, you've got one less step to worry about. I'd recommend doing this if for nothing more than being able to run all your wiring in advance...

    Re: really stupid question about 4ch amps

    If you went active up front, that would take 4 channels, 2 for the woofers, 2 for the tweeters. In the back, they are coaxials, so you would just need a 2 channel amp.



    Head Unit: Pioneer avh-4300dvd,
    Front Stage: Ascendant Audio 6.75", Massive Audio 28mm tweeters
    Rear Fill: Massive Audio CK6-3 6x9 Woofers
    Amps: PPI Phantom P900.4, Sundown Audio SAZ-2500D
    Sub: RE Audio XXX 12" 2.25^3 Tuned to 32

    They sell Kicker at Wal-Mart now. That's saying a lot..
