    On the comps, I didn't have to make any adjustments on the tweeter. For the coax, the minimum possible, especially because you'll be powering from the HU. Having a tweeter in the rear is going to pull your soundstage back which isn't ideal in car audio. So if there's a -6 setting, use that.

    There are even smaller full range Class D amps that I would recommend for someone who feels they have no space for equipment. They're the Massive Audio Nano BiT amps. At 1.6" tall and 5" wide they're super tiny. The 2-channel is 6.3" long and the mono and 4-channel amps are 8.3" long. I have 2 of the BX4s under my passenger seat but they could be tucked away in any number of places. Sometimes you have to get creative and make brackets to put things where you can imagine them fitting.

    I am looking around now at larger amps like 5 ways, but looking at dimensions and output.

    @mylows10 ; could hook you up with an AB 5-channel that should be more than enough for you.

    Lol it happens. They're starting to become the forum boner on multiple sites, especially at that price. They stock up pretty quickly though. Try talking to @trumpet ; and see if he can't get a set for you

    Since I know you own the 62c's and powered them at 50 watts, would you add more power? Also, what would be the most watts you would power them with?

    Yes and as long as the signal was clean I wouldn't mind giving them 150 each

    I don't know why I am asking this because I am pretty sure I know. Does adding more watts make the speakers better, by this I mean cleaner and more accurate not louder?

    Yes and no. For some comp sets that aren't as efficient on lower power, it'll start to make the midbass shine. Since you need more power to generate the motor force to get the woofer's driver moving, there's logic in that argument.

    On the other hand, people seem to think that more power instantly equals a louder speaker and that's not necessarily true. You only get about a 3db rise in volume from a doubling of power, so realistically, there's no weight to the argument.

    I should have also added that if I was going to power my comps at 150 watts, it would be to the woofers. Not a smart idea to give the tweeters that much juice, so that high power application would require an active setup. I've heard the midbasses really start to shine on more power, but I'm scared to see what that much would do to the tweets.

    I can see the argument there that doubling the power only adds a whopping 3db. I don't necessarily want my speakers to be loud at all, 99.9% of the time with my stock system it is at maybe 40% of the full volume output of the head unit and I am perfectly content with how it sounds. Although that does not mean much, I am not one for loud sound but more for detail and clarity.

    So let me try to clear this up with a scenario so it can make sense.
    On one hand lets say, I have one setup where 45 watts powering the speakers and having them put out 70db, and on the other hand I have 100 watts powering the speakers and they are putting out the same 70db.
    Will one sound better (cleaner and more full detail not louder) than the other?

    Most likely the 100W. That's why I'm looking further down the road at something like that P900.4 since, even if I don't use the extra power, will have the headroom.

    Okay I understand that then, it took me a while to think that out and how to write so it would make sense and it seems you follow me. Having the extra head room makes a very valid point to have the extra power.
