Can my JL e6450 be enough for these comps. Coz it says the comps rms rating is 100w but the e6450 only has 75W @ 4ohms.

ANyone out there who can give advice? Thanks!

since that is a 6 channel amp if you bridge some channels you could put 150 to those comps and then use the last 2 channels for a sub

I was hoping of getting rear fills that would be fed by the ohter channels. Will the 75W be not enough? Just a curious question. I'm consideriing your advice though.

im sure 75 would be enough. im just a firm believer in headroom. i have 300 watts going to each side of my id comps ;) mine are the xs comps though

edit: i have 300 watts per side on tap. i doubt i will ever use that much just nice to have it available

Yes, bridge the amp. HU power would suffice if you had to have rear fill.

both of them are right. you could bridge the amp and run the mids with 150 but at the same time 75 watts will be fine for that set. it was created with the idea of just swapping out the factory's and still getting good sound. now with 150 it will get nice and loud. and you could run the rear using deck power as habit said.

Great. I feel confident with ID now.

I was comparing it with focal 165v1 but i can't get enough info if it's better. Thhe negative part about focal is it's more expensive than ID.

I'm an SQ guy and I was a fan of MB Quart during the 90's. I just don't know what kind of comps can match that kind of prestige today.
