    Amp Size & Channel help.

    I have a RE Audio 10" 300watt(rms) 4 ohm sub, two RE Audio 6.5" 50watt(rms) 250watt(output power) component speakers, two RE Audio 6.5" 70watt(rms) 125watt(output power) component speakers, & a Kenwood 50x4(max watt) 22x4(rms) receiver......I was wondering if anyone could help with what size amp & how many channels I need. Thanks

    Re: Amp Size & Channel help.

    You need a total of 5 channels. This could be from either a 4 channel amp and a subwoofer amp or 1 5-channel amp. You could use anywhere from 50W-150W per channel on the speakers and ~250-500W would be a decent range for the subwoofer.
    What Kenwood receiver do you have?

    Re: Amp Size & Channel help.

    this is typically best achieved with two amps. one 4 channel for speakers and one 2 channel or monoblock for the sub. given that you have a 4 ohm sub, getting a 2 channel amp and bridging the channels is a good idea for cheap power. Trumpet can hook you up with two amps for under $300 i bet.

    the head unit hopefully has 3 RCA outputs to make connecting amps easier. if not, then the amps should have daisy-chain RCA outputs.

    you can find 5 channel amps that combine everything into one package.
    on a budget - you can buy them used and look for some Soundstream Reference models for under $200.



    have you been helped by me? i'd love to know. shoot me a PM.
