    Can i wire 2 sets of components to a 2 channel amp?

    I just picked up 2 sets of cadence 6.5 components for my front and rear doors. Im working on a budget right now and only have a brand new soundstream 250 watt 2 channel amp. Is there a way i can make this work?

    yes there is. But whether or not it is possible depends on your amp's ability run at the right number of ohms while at a decent RMS level.

    I know the amp is 125x2 at 2 ohms

    You can put front and rear seaker to a single channel - that gives you 2 ohms. You'd lose the ability to fade front / rear but if it's temporary until you get another 2 channels you might be OK with it. Or run the rear set off the HU and only amp the fronts.

    So adding two sets of 4ohm drivers to a single channel does bring the impedance down to 2 ohms?
