I trust your judgement. I am goofing around. The Cadence CWM6's are 100 rms 4 ohms. The amp puts out 75 rms 4 ohms, will this be enough? What will be left over for the sub. I read I should get a 4 ohm sub for SQ? But, this will limit the amount of power I will be able to get to it since I am being cheap and not putting enough power to them right?
I thought you were going SQ,and cheap?That jbl,is HarmonKardon made,and is Underated @11.9v@75x4,up to 16v?Thats continuous Clean/Clear power,and that Cadence ill bet may be approx 60%effecient?Maybe?And 14.4v rating?Over rated rating at that.Have you ever seen a digital TV go out?or heard of one?And still see your Gramps still watching an old Tube TV,?Digital last so long,Like the new TV last so many hours?Why doesnt the older TVs gone out?Hmm wonder why my 15-20yr old amps are still shelling out the juice?The TDH on alot of the older amps were @0.01%-0.05,and the DB ranged from 95-113 ,and most now maybe 100,SStreams are still at 100+.I know my JBL amp will perform just fine for another 10 yrs, maybe more.There is nothing wrong with running at any ohm load on the sub, as long as its clean,though you b4gin to become more distorted as you drop ohm loads from what I have read?I run 2ohms mono and 2ohms stereo in my truck,and 1ohm mono,and 4ohms stereo in my Honda CRV(soon hopefully to get to 2ohms)Yet, Its just nature of the beast with what vehicle you are working with to get the best sound, of placement of the speakers/subs, and sound deadning/road noise,and good quality low distorted made amps.Good speakers and subs.
You want to be CHEAP, and get good Quality amps, you can find some excellent Used amps with scratches on it that will still perform Flawless,and better than most amps of todays choices,at a CrackHead price.Or you can buy New, and Cheap, and sacrifice for quality/sound/and performance,that an older amp can surpass,and get your moneys worth.I am only making recommendations, as to your SQ wantings/needs, and for Cheapies.Alpine Duo-B amps are still to me some of the Best SQ amps ever made.Concord Digital Reference series,JBL GTQ series,and Hifonics VII/VIII series,and the others I have mentioned before.Take a look at some Polk Audio speakers,maybe JBL,for budget minded speakers.I ran some polk DB 6.5 in my truck for a bit, and in the CRV,and with 50 watts rms,they sounded very nice.If you really want to go SQ, you cant go cheap to get great sound.A friend of mine is involved with SQ/MECCA,and one set of tweeters were $300 bucks
"and one set of tweeters were $300 bucks"
Geeessh. My ears wouldn't know the difference. Like a crackhead drinking a fine wine instead of Irish Rose, he just thinks it's all good because it'll get him drunk lol.
