    What should i power my CDT's with...

    I have the cdt hd-52 set, with upgraded tweets and crossovers, says its 150 watts rms, i already have an ed NINe.1 for the sub, so i wanted to get another from ed to match, I cant decide on weather to get the .4 or the .2 amp... heres the specs for each.
    NINe.2
    400x1 @ 4 ohm
    150x2 @ 2 ohm
    100x2 @ 4 ohm

    NINe.4
    65 x 4 @ 4 Ohms Stereo
    100 x 4 @ 2 Ohms Stereo
    150 x 2 @ 4 Ohms Stereo


    Im going to be needing the 150 x 2, the only difference between the two is one is in stero (wtf?) and the other offers 2 ohms less in what i need...
    What do you guys think?

    cdt hd52's are 4 ohm components...

    you can't use the rated power at 2 ohms, just the rated post at 4 ohms.

    so, you'll need the nine.4

    idk. he seems kinda noobish (no offense) and if he underpowers them and clips them, there's gonna be problems.

    get the nine.2, run them in 4 ohms so they get 100 watts each UNBRIDGEd and leave the gain at a moderate level dont turn it up TOO much.

    I vote for the Nine.4

    Power them correctly, use nothing less.

    Im not "noobish" i know what im doing, just a close friend over at another forum (fryguy) told me these were 2 ohm... later found out they were 4... thought he knew his **** so i didnt look to much into it, until i started getting mixed answerers.
    Im going to be getting the .4, i upgraded the tweets and xovers also, so theres more power, cant go wrong with the 150 x 2

    So even more power for him. Unless they have regulated power supplies too.
