View Full Version : Component Speaker Question?

03-08-2005, 06:39 PM
Im going to get a set of the Alpine R component sets and was wondering first off whats the best size to get, the 6 1/2'' or what?? And also i know the set comes with say two 6 1/2 and two tweeters, and if i wanted to hook up a 4 channel amp to them, will 2 channels power both the 6 1/2 and the 2 tweeters or will those use up all 4 channels, because I want to replace the rear deck speakers also and run them to the amp? Im really not that familiar with components so could someone please help me out...Thanks guys..

Okay so if im reading this right then the 2 6.5's and the 2 tweeters can run on 2 channels then? Thanks

^^exactly as long as there is enough power for just two, or you could bridge the 4 channel and run the rear off the h/u
