will it be fine for me to do that? I'll probably have the LPF on so only highs get to the speakers. The speakers are last years 3 way pioneers. And my HU is the sony CDX-F7700 so will the remote turn on be strong enough to turn on both of the amps w/o a relay?

i never said that. i said watch your gains, im running mine at 80wrms with an eD 9.2. your just scared that your gonna set your gains wrong wrong.

edit: you have to grasp the concept of having more power than you need.

they will be fine just watch the gains...

its not power that kills speakers (unless its like 1000w rms on a 15w rms speaker)

tis the all mighty clipping of amps that kills speakers...

so your saying sending a clean 60w signal into a 35w speaker wont kill the speaker?

Not if you use common sense. ;)

not at all as long as you know what the hell your doing.

after impedance rise, i doubt you will ever see the RMS anyway. as long as you roll the volume, and you dont crank the **** out of it, it will be fine.

yup, you should be ok, just use some caution.

PS. YOU CAN BLOW SPEAKER BY OVERPOWERING THEM, EVEN WITHOUT CLIPPING! It's just harder.

the only time you ever use full power anyway is when the unit is at full volume..



let me ask you, how often is yuor unit at full volume? also take in account double the power is only +3 db


so the difference between 1/8th volume and 3/4 volume might only be a few watts.....

if you run HP you can easlily double the RMS
in FULL its alot more critical

my Auras say 60w rms I feed them 180w in HP mode - sounds killer too

thanks for all the responds. Most of the time I play it at 1/4th or half sometimes I crank it up but never to full. What would you reccomend though as a fliter I don't want any bass going to them just mid and highs?

You can use the HPF on the amp, If it has one...

You can also set the gain on the amp to produce 35 watts...
