    09 CDTs question with amp

    going with
    http://vertexaudio.com/store/pc/CDT-...t-Set-30p7.htm





    and i am getting a free visiontek v4208 150RMSx4 channel susposly, for free from my father in law so would these speakers be a great match since their 150rms?

    Does that include tweeters being 150rms or just the 6.5's?

    Great place to buy them.
    That means the set is 150 rms. The power is distributed by the crossover.

    You can use the front 2 channels on the 2 speaker sets. Or bridge the amp and run 150-180 watts on em.

    Re: 09 CDTs question with amp

    **** im a noob so kinda that makes some sense

    if i have a Audioque 1200D for my tc9 subwoofer and have this other amp hooked up to same battery will that make me dimm more likely than just the AQ? i can see two subwoofer amps to same battery making it very bad but a speaker amp and a subamp doesnt seem so bad to me with big 3 mod,

    Adding another 300 watts shouldn't hurt you much.

    Re: 09 CDTs question with amp

    gotcha so basicaly bridging the amp (4) channel amp reduces the channel in half which makes it 2 channels of 150RMS each

    your sayign 1 channel going to my two 6.5's which split 150rms

    and the other channel goes to my two tweeters which split 150rms

    is that the basic idea or im i not even close

    thank u for ur help by the way i apreciate it

    If the amp is able to bridge its channels, yes it will combine the channels. But it should put out closer to 500 watts per channel then. Have to set the gains accordingly.

    No the tweeter and mid are connected to the crossover. You send the power to your crossover which divides the power between mid and tweeter.

    Re: 09 CDTs question with amp

    It doesn't matter. Both amps need to be connected to the battery somehow. You shouldn't be splicing anything.


    DMM=Digital Multimeter. Very needed tool.

    Anywhere from $1.99 to $199.

    Does your amp do 150x4 at 4 ohm or 2 ohm?
