    Speaker suggestions?

    I have an Alpine MRP-F300 amplifier. It is currently running my subs, but I will be upgrading soon, and won't need it for them any more. So, I was thinking of using it for mids and highs. It is 50/ch at 4 ohm or 75/ch at 2 ohms. Can you suggest some speakers or sets that would work well with it? I assume I want a crossover so that they don't get any nastiness, but maybe I don't really need one. Thanks for the input.

    Re: Speaker suggestions?

    I suppose I should say that my front door speakers are 6.5, and my rear deck's are 6x9.

    I have heard that a powerful sub can be hard on the rear deck. Should I be concerned enough to do the modifications/custom work to mount them elsewhere?

    I am getting a FI BL18

    depends how much your willing to "modify" your doors/ pillers. idealy keep the factory rears power off the HU, and do a 3 way set up front mid and twt passive on 2 channels, and a 6.5 woofer off the other 2.

    Re: Speaker suggestions?

    I would be willing to mount tweeters in the pillars( I think it would look cool, anyway)

    So, have the rear deck speakers be powered by the headunit? But I don't follow on the other bit. I will be replacing all of my speakers, probably. Unless there is any reason to only do the doors. Would I notice if the rear deck was kept stock?

    And afaik the amp can only do one channel if bridging 2 channels.
