    Powering Componets?

    I read that its bad to power componet speakers with the hu power, How bas is it? Would it be horrible if i power 130wat comp speakers wit 40watts from the hu each.. eventually id get an amp when I had more $ but wondering if i can do this temp.

    you can do it for now fine.... more then likely they will be an upgrade in sound from what you have now.

    then when you amp them... even more upgrade in sound

    There's nothing physically wrong with it....i.e. nothing is going to catch on fire or be damaged.

    You simply won't be getting anywhere near full performance from the component set using HU power though.

    ^^^ what they said. I've never seen a deck put out 40 watts RMS...you must be referencing it's peak power. You can expect 20 watts tops.

    I won't say that there simply aren't any head units with bridgeable amps but I will say I haven't ever seen any personally. So no, leaving the rear channels disconnected will not reroute that unused power to other outputs.

    Re: Powering Componets?

    *cue the shameless plug*

    I've got a 75w X 2 amp for $80/shipped and I'll even throw in a nice set of interconnects for free if you're interested

    See the link for the Kenwood amp in my signature if you're interested.

    Umm..wow, thanks dude. I appreciate it. No, this amp hasn't been abused. It came to me in the cosmetic shape shown in the pictures in my FS thread (the pics of the first amp, second product in that thread - the head unit and larger amp have both sold) and since coming to me it has been hooked up in my bedroom running an uber-generic fullrange hatchback box. I don't really wanna get rid of it but I need both the space and the $$ to fun a different project.
