Hi Folks,

I have a set of Rainbow SLC 265 components rated at 100w rms and 150w max, 4Ohm. I have the opportunity to pick up the Orion 6002 amp for very cheap and was wondering if that would be too much for the Rainbows? It's rated at 150w rms @ 4Ohm. Is thing going to work or is it too much? Should I be looking at something like the Orion 4002 instead? It's rated at 100w rms @ 4Ohm. Thanks for the help.

I would go with orion6002 i mean you can always turn it down its always good to have more power then what you need in my opinion. You can never have to much power bcause you can always turn it down.

you should be fine as long as you properly set the gain

Headroom FTW! 6002 it is!

But if you want to save some money, then the 4002 would not be a bad option either.
