    Ideal??

    You only need about 5w to get them to cover the audible spectrum adequately -

    50 watts and up will take them to their extremes depending upon install and filtering.

    Re: Re: How much power for koda6?

    Hmmm...Ok, so say you had these

    Two amps:
    Autotek 4x100
    Some random amp 4x75

    7 speakers:
    Dayton DSQ
    2 Adire Kodas
    2 Morel MR-55's
    2 Focal TN-45's

    Bridging 3, 4 of the Autotek for the DSQ is a given and the tweeters getting 75 each is pretty much assumed...

    But would you give the Kodas (which will be mounted in-door, facing the center) 75 or 100 watts each?

    The Morels would be facing the passengers...

    first question why are you mixing componets??? generally they will have diff. xover slopes and cut off freq's...if im not mistaken wouldnt that cause cancelation or blank spots in the freq. range???? and i'd send them 100w per mid/tweet combo

    Would it?

    I'd cross the tweeters at 3500 and the Morel at 500...

    Oops...by "The site" I was referring to Adireaudio.com's page on the Kodas...this site has been very helpful

    i'd serously be weary about using diff. componet sets.....unless u were using one xover for them all or have them all set properly......

    if you have yours x-overs set correctly, and are using one set as a midbass driver (which it would seem like you are doing...) Then you will be fine...
    my question is, why would you limit the koda's so much? Their strength are their midbasses... no?
