View Full Version : Which would be better for this Amp

05-26-2008, 07:38 PM
Hey, im starting work on my first audio system, so i'm a bit of a newbie :(

i just got a quick question to the pros.

Im getting a JBL PX300.4 Amplifier, and im not sure which speakers to get.
They would be for the front doors in a chrysler crossfire. I cant deicide between JBL GTO637 ( 2ohms, 60 RMS) and Alpine SPR-17C (4ohms, 100RMS) the amp supplies 123.5 RMS @ 4ohms and 169 RMS @ 2 ohms.

i just want to know which would sound better, and if the 169 watts would burn the 60 watt speaker.

Thanks in advance :)

Also, if any of u could maybe suggest something different, then that would be great too,

Don't feel like researching but what size speakers you take up front and why a 4 channel?Is it for rear speakers or are you gonna bridge the rear for a sub?

05-26-2008, 11:18 PM
i will bridge the remaining two for a sub, and the speakers are 6,5 inches

I see you are looking at coaxials,no way for components?

05-26-2008, 11:55 PM
not really room for a component, but if you say it would be much better than i could try and fit the ALPINE SPR-17S, though i'd rather go with just a speaker

sound wise I think it would be much better,but coaxials should be O.K

My question still stands, which of the two listed in first post would be better and would the 2ohm 60 rms jbl be burned by 169 rms amp

Sorry but these are better than both but why the hell do you insist on only those 2 speakers outta hundreds of choices but i will bite

The Alpines

... i dont think the pioneers would be any good since they only have 60 rms @ 4ohms... thats kind of... too low, the alpines have twice that

05-27-2008, 10:45 PM
and you think 60 at 2 ohms is somehow different?

05-27-2008, 10:46 PM
go with components

Just because your amp can do 125 wrms doesn't mean you have to use it,thats what setting gains are for,I was just suggesting some respected speakers and btw many speakers are known to take 2x their rated power but by all means if you want the jbl's it is your money

money isnt really the case since im not paying, but i dont really want to go with components even tho i know they would be better, simply beacuse i would strugle to fit all this stuff, there isnt really a good place for the tweeters and the doors under the panel are completly packed so i cant really think of a place for the crossover, so it seems like i will go with the 100 rms alpines, i just dont think that the jbl/pioneers's 60rms is enought, or maybe im just greedy, my main concern with the jbls is that i would burn them with too much power from the amp. I wanted to get them in the first place to have everything form jbl ( amp,speakers,and sub) but i think that the alpines are the best choice :) thanks for your oppinions anyway.
