Hi everyone, i'm looking for a set of component speakers for my system.
I need 6.5s with tweeters and 6x9 for the rear.
The amp i have is an alpine MRP-F240

here are the specs

* 40 watts RMS x 4 at 4 ohms
* 50 watts RMS x 4 at 2 ohms
* 100 watts RMS x 2 bridged output at 4 ohms
* 2-, 3-, or 4-channel output
* 4-ohm stable in bridged mode

i want to run all the interior speakers to this amp. How do I choose the right speakers for these specs and what do you recommend i get. Looking to spend maybe 300 for all speakers. I'm really just having trouble figuring out the ohms of the component sets.

Forget the 6x9.... Just get a great set of components up front with 300 bucks and bridge that amp! Most people will agree it will sound much better.

Some components to look into..

Morel Tempo 6
Hertz hSK165

Those fit within your budget. I had the HSKs and recently switched to the Tempo 6s and am very pleased with them. They are a little bit more expensive, but well worth it!

and just run the subwoofer in the rear then?

Yeah, run a nice component set up front, and a sub in the rear and you will be very happy!

i use 6x9's for rear fill and as long as you get a good pair and u know how to set them so they arent distorting you can do that

how do i bridge the amp to run 100 watts x 2 at 2 ohm? do i use the 1st and 2nd channels bridged and the 3rd and 4th bridged to achieve this?
