    Componet RMS ??

    I have the JL XR 650 componet set which is rated at 70watts RMS as a set. On the Rec amp power it says 70-150 RMS. My question is that when you see the tweeter sold seperately the RMS of that tweeter is 70 watts and I assume the midbass is about the same assuming that they are crossed over correctly. So as a set tehy should be able to handle 140watts RMS, since by themselves they can handle 70 watts. thoughts??

    The crossover splits frequencies to the woofer and tweets. They don't both get power at the same time at the same levels. A 70 watt amp will send 70 watts to the woofer at lower frequencies or 70 watts to the tweeters at high frequencies. It's all good, don't worry.

    (You DO need a crossover however).

    Thanks Squeak, you explained it well on the other post which was the same as this one. Usually I am impatient and I will post on the general discussion as well as the specific forum to get a quicker response.
