    4 channel vs. 5 channel?

    ok so i have a custom fiberglass box in my roof with (2) 100 rms 6x9's (2) 120 rms ruper tweets and (1) 8" alpine type r subwoofer at Alpine Type R Series 1000W Max 8" Component Car Audio Dual 4 Ohms Sub Woofer | eBay

    and im going to have another 4 channel running my 4 speakers in my truck ( which im looking to buy) MONEY IN HAND... i was wondering if using a 5 channel for the 6x9's and super tweeters and sub would be a good idea.... and which 5 channel to look at.

    Re: 4 channel vs. 5 channel?

    yeah i was just wondering becuase i wanted to know if running 6x9's at the lower frequencies and super tweeters at high frequencies would hurt the amp for the setup

    ---------- Post added at 01:26 PM ---------- Previous post was at 01:26 PM ----------

    cuz i have a 5 channel fosgate prime and its just getting wayy to hot and distorting at high volumes where it shouldnt be distorting. wandering if its just not strong enough

    Sounds like you may not have the xover points set right and your clipping...
