View Full Version : Amp for PG RSD's and Pioneer Rev's
07-19-2007, 10:08 AM
I currently have a pair of 6.5" Pioneer REV's in the front doors of my car and a pair of eclipse se8365 3-way 6.5" coaxials in the rear deck. I'm selling the eclipse's and putting the pioneer's in the back for fill. For the front I'm buying a pair of Phoenix Gold RSD 6.5" Comps. I need opinions on what amp to buy to power the Pioneers and the PG's. The pioneer's get 60w RMS and the PG's call for 60w RMS. I would like to give the pg's 100w each side but i don't know if the pioneers can handle that. Any ideas on power or amp choice for me?

have you considered about just getting a nice 2ch amp for the PGs, and let the Pioneers run off the HU

Just get a decent 4 channel and turn the gain down for the REV's if it's too much power for them. Do the PG's really need 100watts?
If you're on a tight budget the AP1040 is hard to beat and should work nicely with the speakers you have.

Great! All I need now is a dual amp kit. Would 4 guage be enough for this? I saw the kicker pkd4 amp kit on ebay for cheap. Only thing missing is rca's, but i've seen people here selling them cheap also.

I'm getting the same PG Comps (rsd's) and will be running my stock Infinity comps in the rear doors of my Durango. How about an Autotek SS 75.4?? I've heard the PG's can handle up to 150rms, so how about me bridging the amp (connect + and - from both sides at the amp) for the front stage and then use the other two channels for the rear fill? If I'm correct, that would be about 125 rms to each front speaker and 75 to each rear. Hope you guys understand what I'm tryin to say..LOL

I think I'll stick with the ap1040. Enough power for the PG's and all I'll have to do is turn down the gains for the Pioneer's. Thanks for the suggestion though.
Is 4 Guage sufficient with the other amp I have and the ap1040?
