I just picked up both a sundown 50.4 and a set of hat i51-2 speakers. I'm only running a front stage and i'm running the speakers as components. My question is should i just run them off the first two channels of my amp theoretically 50w rms or should i set them up bridged off the amplfier? I know it may seem stupid and the obvious answer being bridge the amp and send more power to the speakers, but i dont want to be sending too much power to the speakers. I also am just running them passive because i don't feel comfortable nough yet to adjust crossover points, slopes and other adjustments required for active setups on my 9887. Any input would be great, thanks

They are 100 RMS so yes bridge it...

IIRC, the 50.4 has proper crossovers to run active directly through the amp. That'd be another option.

I have an aq sdc 2.5 10 right now on a saz-1000d and a cadence Xa175.2 with cadence Zrs5k up front which are loud but are somewhat harsh on the tweets. I have a hdc3 12 in the mail that I'll match up with the 1000 and im Gunna put in the 50.4 and the imagines in place for the front

Audioque came through and reconed my sub for free because it was new in the box and shipped it back to me for free so I'm very happy with audioques service right now but I would like to hear the 25 series
