    Do it, they will sound 110 times better.

    Any speaker of some substance will sound better with more power.

    Re: alpine coaxials need an amp?

    ok well i got a couple of questions... i will only be running 2 speakers so can i bridge a 4 channel amp or will it send a mono signal to each speaker? also can i just dasiy chain(<~~~~i think that is what its called) off of my sub amp instead of running new RCAs to my CD player? and also will there be a big voltage drop if i just ran a distro. block with 4 ga. splittin out to 4 ga. and 8 ga. power wire, will that work??

    given that the run of 4 gauge isnt too long and depending on the amps you are running, that wiring may or may not be enough to get all that you can out of your gear. i would buy a 4 channel amp to power the speakers so you can stagger the output of them if you dont have time delay and also you keep your fader function. also, i would run a new set of rca's.

    what do u mean "stagger the output"? like get a 4 channel and only hook up 2 channels? would it make a big difference if i ran a new power wire for the other amp?
