my piece of $hit pioneer amp decided to die last month and it was runnin my front components. So while im saving money to get a new one i thought i might use my sub amp to power the components, my amp is a RF 500 watt two channel amp, so 250 per channel- is that gonna be bad for my components? i thought i could just turn down the gain if its too much power, but if its gonna risk hurtin the components i dont wanna do it.

the components are infinity kappas; 90 watts rms

Buddy, think about it, your amp is pumpin 250 watts in a probably 150 watt max speaker. just make sure you keep the gain down, and i mean DOWN.
