    Don't use a 700w sub amp on a pair of 6x9's that are probably full range speakers. If the amp is a true 700wrm then you would be way overpowerring them because I can't think of any 6x9's that will handle 350rmw each (not saying that there aren't any out there, I just can't recall any is all) and if you don't have 6x9 woofers only then you are really just wasting the speakers because they won't produce all that great of bass that it would be worth putting an amp this powerful on......just my opinion though......

    Well if you like heavily distorted music I would say go for it... but i would barely turn the gain up too much power would cause the speakers to dismantle them selves.. I would think... ;P

    He's trying to power 2 sets of 6x9's, not 2 6x9's from what his description says. Meaning each individual set would be gettin 350 watts, meaning each speaker would be gettin 175 watts a piece. Still, that seems to be on the high side, but I'm not too knowledgable in this area.
