    not loud enough?

    i think im paranoid right now.

    my RSDs aren't really as loud as i'd like them to be.

    running 4ohms bridged on amp in my sig.

    400x1@4ohm.

    the tweeters aren't loud(like piercing the ear) how they were with the 100.4

    think i need more power?

    or maybe i need tweets that get loud off lil power.

    tweets not piercing the ears is a good thing.

    Re: not loud enough?

    Funny you have that under your screen name...

    And, not sure what brand your amp is, but usually a "400.2" would mean 200x2 rated. Sooo...that would be no more, rated, than a bridged 100.4, correct?

    I can see that

    Just busting your balls mang...100x2 means 100x2, if it were 100x1 then the wattage would be split between the 2 speakers

    Re: not loud enough?

    a whole 4 ohm comp set, L+R, bridged to a 2 channel = 2 ohms bridged if you have the sets in parallel... = not safe for the amp. That means each channel is playing at 1 ohm.

    its obvious that you've been spending all your time in the thunderdome and not in something more productive.
    I guess its back to the drawing board for you

    if its a tweeter and a mid with a passive crossover, they are both seeing the full amount of power. the power isn't split between the 2. They would both see the 100w, just different frequencies. correct me if im wrong.
