    Components...>175

    Ill be running a ppi 900.4 amp with my next component speakers. I currently have some older alpine type r comps. Im looking at the the following three.

    JBL P660c
    Image Dynamics CTX-6.5cs
    Massive Audio CK6V

    I will be running passive. Doors have been deadened.

    Been out of the audio game so any help would be appreciated.

    Did you mean to indicate less than 175?

    Yes sorry. Less than 175. I listen to classic rock, metal, rap and country. Some regae.

    CK6V is discontinued and unavailable unless someone's selling a used set. The current model is CK6X, and you want that over the V. I would not put the P660C set on a P900.4. It can be done, but at greater risk of causing damage from too much power. No opinion on the ID set.

    Do you plan to use a subwoofer as well?

    Do you already have the P900.4 or is that a future purchase?

    On your list I can get you the P660C set or the replacement to the CK6V set, CK6X. If the budget could go up a bit the CDT CL-61 set comes into play.

    Your amp is fine for the front speakers. When you're ready to upgrade I have PPI amps in stock, including the P900.4.

    I found the MS-62c for 214 free shipping. Still a little out of my range

    There's always something a little bit out of a given price range that's better. The service you get from the source you buy from is important to consider as well.

    Re: Components...>175

    Well I decided that to spend a little more funds. Buying the MS-62C today. So now my dilema is an amp. I will be getting a SA-8 for my sub in a few weeks. Trying to decide to get a 4ch amp and bridge two channels to run the sub. But my understanding is that the sa-8 loves the power. Still on a budget so would a ppi 900.4 be suitable or should I run a 2ch amp for the fronts and mono amp for the sundown?

    Re: Components...>175

    You have to have a 4 ohm load to bridge the rear channels of most 4 channel amps, including the P900.4. This means you need the dual 2 ohm version of the SA-8 V2. If you got the dual 4 ohm version you could get a pair of PPI iON amps and come out at about $250 together. You'd get 650W for the sub instead of 450W. I always prefer to run extra power to a sub rather than less than RMS.

    As an aside, I could make a killer bundle on the amps and the speakers and it would all ship today.

    Re: Components...>175

    It probably depends on the sensitivity of subwoofer and your needs. I have been happy with PPI P900.4 bridged powering a 12 inch sub in a sealed box. Most of the time, the amp probably never broke a sweat because I hardly ever listen rap or say other synthetic bass music, and when I do I still thought I had enough bass. Maybe you should get the mono P1000.1 if you want to get the most SPL out of your subwoofer.
