    Wiring and choosing help

    Hi everyone, i'm looking for a set of component speakers for my system.
    I need 6.5s with tweeters and 6x9 for the rear.
    The amp i have is an alpine MRP-F240

    here are the specs

    * 40 watts RMS x 4 at 4 ohms
    * 50 watts RMS x 4 at 2 ohms
    * 100 watts RMS x 2 bridged output at 4 ohms
    * 2-, 3-, or 4-channel output
    * 4-ohm stable in bridged mode


    i want to run all the interior speakers to this amp. How do I choose the right speakers for these specs and what do you recommend i get. Looking to spend maybe 300 for all speakers. I'm really just having trouble figuring out the ohms of the component sets.

    Forget the 6x9.... Just get a great set of components up front with 300 bucks and bridge that amp! Most people will agree it will sound much better.

    Some components to look into..

    Morel Tempo 6
    Hertz hSK165

    Those fit within your budget. I had the HSKs and recently switched to the Tempo 6s and am very pleased with them. They are a little bit more expensive, but well worth it!



    Components: Morel Tempo 6
    Amp: Arc Audio KS 300.4
