    running 60WRMS to 35WRMS speakers

    will it be fine for me to do that? I'll probably have the LPF on so only highs get to the speakers. The speakers are last years 3 way pioneers. And my HU is the sony CDX-F7700 so will the remote turn on be strong enough to turn on both of the amps w/o a relay?

    Re: running 60WRMS to 35WRMS speakers

    now I'll probably have to upgrade the speakers that I just got last year and another question my HU is the sony CDX-F7700 so will the remote turn on be strong enough to turn on both of the amps w/o a relay?

    i never said that. i said watch your gains, im running mine at 80wrms with an eD 9.2. your just scared that your gonna set your gains wrong wrong.

    edit: you have to grasp the concept of having more power than you need.

    they will be fine just watch the gains...

    its not power that kills speakers (unless its like 1000w rms on a 15w rms speaker)

    tis the all mighty clipping of amps that kills speakers...

    so your saying sending a clean 60w signal into a 35w speaker wont kill the speaker?

    after impedance rise, i doubt you will ever see the RMS anyway. as long as you roll the volume, and you dont crank the **** out of it, it will be fine.

    yup, you should be ok, just use some caution.

    PS. YOU CAN BLOW SPEAKER BY OVERPOWERING THEM, EVEN WITHOUT CLIPPING! It's just harder.

    Re: running 60WRMS to 35WRMS speakers

    the only time you ever use full power anyway is when the unit is at full volume..



    let me ask you, how often is yuor unit at full volume? also take in account double the power is only +3 db


    so the difference between 1/8th volume and 3/4 volume might only be a few watts.....

    Re: running 60WRMS to 35WRMS speakers

    if you run HP you can easlily double the RMS
    in FULL its alot more critical

    my Auras say 60w rms I feed them 180w in HP mode - sounds killer too
