    Icon32 Enough power?

    I have a CDT EF51 comp set and a ppi DCX300.4 to power them. The amp puts out 50 watts per channel(underatted) at 4 ohms and 150 watts Bridged into 4 ohms. My question is will the 50 watts be enough to make them sound good or should I bridge them at 150, and will that be too much.

    should be fine. You can't get in trouble underpowering speakers, unless you're clipping the amp...just watch the gains.
