my name is nate im new to the forum but no completely new to car audio. its been a while since ive had a system. and even when i had all my different systems i never really knew what i was doing...
being that im a broke husband and father im kind of keeping it on a budget (christmas present type budget). i really have no desire for am/fm or a cd player so here my idea/plan...
-My phone ad my source (pandora, mp3s etc..) NO HEADUNIT
-soundstorm lab s4eq
-mb quart onyx4.80 4channel amp 640rms
-soundstorm lab 6.5 components (rear only)
-and my "old" audiobahn aw1251q 12" 400rms/800max 4ohm dvc in a sealed box
the eq has sub/front/rear outputs and i will be using a 3.5mm to rca as an input
i plan to run the rear components using 2 channels and then bridging the other 2 for the subwoofer
here is where i run into my ??????
bridging the 2 channels will give me 320w at 4ohms according to the amp specs
obviously my sub wont match the best being that i can only wire it 2ohm or 8ohm
i plan to wire it 8ohm because i am worried about messing up the amp......HOW MUCH POWER WILL I LOSE?
also i have never had components (always regular old 2 or 3 way speakers)
with having the crossovers between the amp and the components what setting would i want on my amp/eq ? let it all pass through and the crossovers will do the work?
im sure i will have many more questions as people respond......
