    more speakers/less power or fewer speakers/more power?

    Trying to decide what exactly I shoudl do for mids/highs to keep up with a lot of bass... I asked about horns over on ROE but replys there are few and far between. Then I got it in my head, may be I should just run a bunch of components instead.

    I would be running 4 sets of whichever... (they are cheap since I would be buying 4-6)
    looking at:

    -POWERBASS S6C 6.5" 210W 2-way component speaker system ($29.99)

    -Autotek AT6.2C 6-1/2" 250W 2-Way Super Sport AT Series Component Speaker System ($31.95)

    -Crunch GRP6.5C 6.5" 300W Ground Pounder Component Speaker System ($37)

    -Planet Audio "Torq Series" TQ60C 6.5" 2-Way Component Speaker System ($41.95)

    there are a bunch of BOSS systems too but IDK... last I knew boss was total junk...?


    now IIRC you can wire 4) 4ohm SVC speakers to a 1ohm or 4ohm load, so with 8 I would be looking at either TWO 1ohm loads or a single 2ohm load... SO i would probably just run a mono-block at 2ohm to make it easy. Most likely an Autotek Super Sport AT1000 which is 500 RMS @ 2ohm...
    or I can run 5 sets at 1.6~ohm (if the AT1000 could handle a 1.6ohm load)


    Budget on this would be around $200, I like to have stuff match so I personaly think 4-5 sets of the Autoteks on the Autotek AT1000 would be good.

    Why dont you just go with one GOOD set instead of many terrible sets?

    Re: more speakers/less power or fewer speakers/more power?

    That was more or less the question I had...

    I know someitmes with subs it is better to have more cone area on less power than to have less cone area with a bunch of power... I was thinking may be this would fall into that...? I mean 8-10 speakers on 100W~ might be louder than 4 speakers on 200w~


    This is th ereaosn I asked... I would also run horns, or pretty much anythign that will get LOUD!

    just get 1 set and run 200+wrms to them... Boston SPZ can get **** loud and so can many others.

    list a budget

    I bought a set of those cheap Crunch coaxs for my van. Just something to put in the doors so I could sell it. I tried bridging a Crunch 1800.4 on them and they got pretty fucked up, but they actually still sound pretty good. When I first hooked them up they sounded really nice for a $30 set of speakers.

    If you want just loud, buy 2 sets of the Crunch coaxs, and then buy a couple cheap pro audio speakers to go with them.
