I know there are wiring diagrams out there Ive looked at for subs but I just get confused dealing with speakers even tho it's the same. But I have a MB Quart dsc4125 4 channel. And wiring up two sets of rf components and another set of rf coaxiles. I was thinking of just having the componets off the 4 channel but if I can get the other ones on there also then I would. The speakers are 60 watts rms each. And the specs of the amp are

4 ohms: 125 watts x 4 chan.

2 ohms: 250 watts x 4 chan.

Bridged, 4 ohms: 500 watts x 2 chan.

channels 1&2 to the comp sets, channels 3&4 to the coaxes.

Would I sacrifice power by doing it that way. How much power would each see?

not doing this, you should have the math skills of a 4th grader to figure this out.

Well would I be at 2 ohms or 4 ohms. That's what I dunno? I know that it would either be 125 divided by 2 or 250 divided by 2. Then would the other set on channel 3&4 get the full power. See like I said I'm just confused dealing with speakers.

seriously, you have a 4ohm set and you connect another 4 ohm set in parallel what ohm do you get?

2 ohm :) ha. Ok so those two sets would be at 250 so then that would mean the 250 is divided by 4 (2 mids 2 tweets) then the back set of coaxiles would get the 125 divided by the two mids. If that's right that'd work nice.

not 4 divided by 250, 2 divided by 250

Ok sorry for my dumbness but if both sets of components are seeing 125 each (250/2) like u said, then would the mid and tweet see 125 each?

Ok thanks for the help man. Dunno if 60 watt rms speakers will like 125 watts tho but I guess I'll keep the gains down and see how it goes.
