i think im paranoid right now.

my RSDs aren't really as loud as i'd like them to be.

running 4ohms bridged on amp in my sig.

400x1@4ohm.

the tweeters aren't loud(like piercing the ear) how they were with the 100.4

think i need more power?

or maybe i need tweets that get loud off lil power.

tweets not piercing the ears is a good thing.

I'll agree w/ you being an idiot then.

someone correct me please.
im feeling dumb today.

100x2@4ohms, meaning each speaker is seeing 50watts correct?

Funny you have that under your screen name...

And, not sure what brand your amp is, but usually a "400.2" would mean 200x2 rated. Sooo...that would be no more, rated, than a bridged 100.4, correct?

I can see that

Just busting your balls mang...100x2 means 100x2, if it were 100x1 then the wattage would be split between the 2 speakers

a whole 4 ohm comp set, L+R, bridged to a 2 channel = 2 ohms bridged if you have the sets in parallel... = not safe for the amp. That means each channel is playing at 1 ohm.

its obvious that you've been spending all your time in the thunderdome and not in something more productive.
I guess its back to the drawing board for you

if its a tweeter and a mid with a passive crossover, they are both seeing the full amount of power. the power isn't split between the 2. They would both see the 100w, just different frequencies. correct me if im wrong.

So you're running one 4 ohm mid and tweeter connected to a crossover on each channel right? I assume your amp is 2 channel? Go with at least 100 WPC for the mids and tweeters. Also the midrange and tweeter are not seeing equal power. It is largely determined by the crossover and what frequencies are present in the song you're listening to. Song with strong mids = more power to the midrange and less to the tweeter. Songs with strong highs = more power to the tweeter and less to the midrange.
