View Full Version : Noob Query on Speaker and Amp suitability

12-05-2011, 10:00 AM
My 1st post. I currently run a Pioneer BT70 headunit through to a Genesis Profile 4 into a 4 channel set up and a Profile Sub into an Audiobahn 12"
The front stage of the 4 plays into a set of Hertz ESK130 Compoments and in the rear thier coax brothers
Amp is rated 4 x 50w at 4ohm and 2 x 140w bridged.

I am thinking about bridging the profile 4 and driving it into the front stage

Speakers are rated 75w rms and 150peak.

ive read differing opinin on power into speakers and believe this will work nicely, but wanted educated opiinions on this option.

Also if i do so should i run the rear 2 speakers of the Deck ?

Appreciate the advice...

If you set your highpass filter correctly (probably around 80hz) and if your gain is set properly they will be great with the extra power.

Awesome - and what about runnign the rear fill from the deck ?

Your rear fill will be good from the HU, a lot of people run their their rears from only HU power. I personally don't use any rear fill.
