    SLC 265 wiring ...

    I noticed on the webpage that the SLC265 are 4ohm .. could they be wired to run 2ohm? because im trying to look for an amp that can push 100watts to each speaker. I would need a 4-channel amp right? to push the tweeters, frontstage, and back?

    no they can not be ran at 2ohm. You can not reconfigure the impedence. I say loos the rears and get a sub or subs. You can still use a 4 channel to run that.

    I'm not sure if I really get what you mean... but this is how I interpreted what you said.

    You want to run the tweeters on channels 1 and 2, then then the mids off channels 3 and 4? If that's what you were thinkin, you can do that. You would need to set the crossover frequencies on either you amp or deck to do this. However, you can't run them at 2 ohms.

    it will power them, but they would shine with more.

    if you bridge that amp to the SLCs, they will get ~200 watts and they would shine off that power. i had my slc's run off 85 watts and the midbass was very punchy. with that kind of headroom you are going to have, it'll sound awesome.

    It sounds like he wants to reserve 2 channels for rear though. Unless I misunderstood the original post.

    Drop the rears (or run them off the HU) and bridge the amp will work great as well.

    Re: SLC 265 wiring ...

    yea i'd bridge that amp if you could.

    and i also agree if rears is what you want, just run them off of hu power.

    yes that would do the trick. kill the rears. and bridge the amp and you are golden.

    Also another question .. is there a thread telling a person how to bridge an amplifier? Is it using 1 amplifier or 2?
