View Full Version : Front 4" comps off an alpine CDA 9815

I'm wondering if anyone can recommend any 4" comps I can run off my alpine CDA 9815. The internal amp puts out 27/60 per channel. my budget is 150 shipped. This might be a dumb question, but can you bridge the channels of a HU amp?

I am planning on running the MB Quart PSD 210 (four inch components w/ external crossover). There on sale at sounddomain.com right now for 139.95.

so you think that's enough power for these speakers?

yah i think so...i got an alpine cda-9813 (same power output as yours) and im gonna bridge it hopefully. The rms on the speakers is only 30-80 watts

I think it's pointless to spend the money on MBQuarts to power them off the headunit. I have 4" MBQuart Coax's and i am using a PPI 50w to each speaker. They sounded a little better when i was running it off my PPI 90w a channel. I think you should get an amp to power them, or get some Pioneers to run off the headunit.

yah but if he can bridge the h/u he'll get 54 watts to each speaker

I don't know the specs on the HU if you can bridge em or not. But even so, HU power is crappy and distorted. Not worth it, IMHO
