Hi all. Waiting on all my parts to arrive to do my install, I purchased the JBL MS 62C's because of the rave reviews they were getting. My amp is the Polk PA1100.5 five channel. I'm only running the components in the doors, no rear fill, and two 10" type r's. If I bridge the amp it puts out 250 x 2. Is that too much for the JBL's even if I keep the gains down? If I don't bridge it it's only putting out 80 x 4 and I don't want to under power them. These will be going in a 350z if that matters. Thanks.

Would be fine with the bridged amp, just keep gain set realistically and enjoy the extra headroom.

Yes, enjoy the extra headroom. Keep in mind you may need extra Sound deadening for the extra power also due to rattles you will get with the extra power on the doors.

If you install them correctly, they will work fine with either 80 Watts or 250 watts, if you don't abuse them. If you abuse them you will risk damage and shorter life for both the drivers and amp.
