waht channel amp would u recomend i use for the JL AUDIO XR653-CS 3 way component set?

well if u got 2 of em a 2 channel amp. Maybe a 4 channel amp if there 4ohm comps then u could bridge 2 of the channels to become a 2 channel amp there as well.

so if i get 2 sets i can get a 2 channel amp ?

a 2 by 70 is all thats needed the front side of my van gogh 320.4 beats them pretty good.

waite totally confused lol .... i want only one set where im going to take that set and but the 4 inch speaker in the back and the 6.5 and the tweet in front .... im going to have some 6 x 9's running off the h/u in the back so do u think that i should keep that 4" in the front ?

so do u think that i should keep that 4" in the front ?

so ill run the 4's and 6.5's at the bottom wit the tweet in the stock area.... plus the 6x9's in the back for the rear fill.... but waite lol wait channel amp could i run to get the full rms outta these?

Run the comp set in front off of a 2-channel amp, run the rear fill off of your HU's internal amplifier.

thanks alot that was what i was looking for the whole time lol... would a 100 watts be too much for the comp set?

05-12-2005, 12:15 PM
no. 100 would be awesome.

a [email protected] amp will do perfect.

100w is not to much. I was running my IDs with 230w per side. If your looking for a amp i would look into a jl 300/2. that would be 150w per side and would work great

05-12-2005, 12:20 PM
Or a jl 450/4 that would run 150 for the fronts and 75 for the rears

05-15-2005, 07:02 AM
is there an amp that can do what the jl does but for a cheaper price?

05-15-2005, 12:08 PM
Just run the rears off the HU, and find one of the millions of 150 x 2 amps.

05-15-2005, 05:25 PM
but i kind of wanted to run them at about 70 to 80 watts because the 6x9's i want are 75 watts rms and i dont wanna underpower them that bad

in about every case from what you are calling underpowered all your speakers will be at normal volumes. power is nice wont argue that but rear speakers will totally mess up a front stage unless its processed. car audio is ran in one of 2 fashions noadays stereo and surround. there is no more "quad"in car audio that died in the early 80's. stereo is purely left and right so rear fill will mess it up with too much power. the suround sound places the power and processes it for you....to me in a car suround sound sounds like pure *** unless done right (very very few get it to that point) and i would still take a propper stereo over a propper surround sound for music until the dvd format for music becomes the norm.
