Alright I got a couple questions. First i am going to put the cdt ef61i components in the front and the cdt cl5x coaxiles in the rear. these speakers are pretty far apart on their rms needs(120 vs 60) and I have a factiory HU so I cant put the rears on HU power. so can I get a 4 way amp that puts out about 60 rms x 4 and wire the front components at 2 ohms and keep the rears at 4 ohms? and will this effect the SQ at all? I have heard that 2 0hms for speakers doesnt sound as good. So will this plan work?

Uhhh....
First things first, you've been lied to on wattage. If a HU advertised at 240 watts puts out more than 12 watts, I'm impressed. My 1200 watt amp puts out that 60 nominal watts at medium gain. If you're worried about blowing speakers out with you HU, don't.

As far as the amp, as long as it's 2 ohm stable, go for it. Whatever floats your boat.

Rest assured that he doesn't know.

See my response in wiring.
