    Sorry to make another thread but i still need comps

    Ok so i have a 4 channel amp (SOUNDMAGUS CP91) it does 90x4 @ 4 ohms, 120x4 @ 2 ohms, or 180x2 @ 4 ohms.

    First of all should i bridge the amp and throw 180 watts and a a passive comp set

    or should i go active?

    Currently i have a pair of infinity 10.7t kappa tweeters from my 60.7 cs. the mids are shot and i hated them anyways.

    Im looking for SQL. i will be running a 15" loaded BTL on 3200 rms and they need to keep up mid bass wise and on all other fronts.

    Im willing to spend $200 but not a penny more. I AM NOT AN AUDIOPHILE i dont need perfection just strong sound thats clean.

    Do any of you guys know of any good 2 Ohms mids that will take the 120 watts my amp puts out and work well with my kappa tweets?

    is there a good full comp set that i can afford that will work off of my amp bridged?

    I dont want to waste my amp by only running 2 channels so its gotta be active or bridged.

    Will my kappa tweets take rated power without the supplied xover 50 watts rms?

    i need some help here guys so any recommendation will be appreciated.

    Im not sure what will sound best and i dont know much about running active

    Heres a link to the specs and features of my amp so you can see what i have to work with:

    Re: Sorry to make another thread but i still need comps

    just bridge it to some passive comps, not worth going active if you're more concerned with getting loud and aren't going to tune it to perfection

    Im looking for a comp set that will take 180rms from my amp bridged then.

    I would think they would be happy with it, just be easy on the gain
    (set it correctly or less). Don't go crazy with the volume control.

    Re: Sorry to make another thread but i still need comps

    Rockford Fosgate Power Series Comps, can be had for less than $200 on fleabay, and would handle that power fine. Speakers are rated at 100rms, but are inefficient. I was feeding my 200w from a Orion 8002 at 4 ohm, and they took it like a champ.

    Not the best sounding comps in my opinion, but they were loud, if thats what your looking for.

    System is a work in progress.
