    Powering Speakers over 100 watts

    I just got two mtx dj speakers that are rated at 150 watts rms each... However, every amp i look at(and have now) seems to only be 100 watts per channel.. How should I power these speakers so they each are getting their full 150 watts rms? Thanks

    They are both 8 ohm drivers... and my reciever is a 2-channel reciever rated at 200watts peak... do I need a new reciever/ or an aditional amp?

    rms is just a guidline, 100 watts will power them fine

    Re: Powering Speakers over 100 watts

    well right now i'm not even running them at 100 watts rms each.... I have one Speaker on my 200watt peak power reviever, and when i turn it up louder, you can tell it is distorted... and i will be using the speakers for just partys, not dj specific things... any ideas on how to get them more power?

    stuff like that, i dont know which one would fit ur needs. I dont like how they never really show the power outputs on most of them. Probably better sites u can look from.

    Re: Powering Speakers over 100 watts

    How about this? What if I get rid of my reciever entirely and get a Pyramid PA1000X amp? Its rated at 175 watts rms x 2 into 8 ohms.... and my speakers are rated at 150 watts rms each.. so i'de be 25 watts over the ratings, but in my experience with car audio, it never hurts to go over a bit, only to go under... so does that amp look good? quality amp?

    Re: Powering Speakers over 100 watts

    ya it should be reciever to amp to speakers, I dont know much about the DJ amps, I got interested in it for a little bit but never really into it. But if its like car audio I'd wouldn't go with Pyramid unless u absolutly had no money.
