    speaker wiring, easy question/answer !

    Hello everyone, i just bought some 6x8s (stupid ford...) they are Pioneer TS-A688OR. They are 4 ohm, 50 rms and 240 max. I also have an Alpine amp, 4 channel MRP-F240 with specs:
    » 40 watts RMS x 4 at 4 ohms
    » 50 watts RMS x 4 at 2 ohms
    » 100 watts RMS x 2 bridged output at 4 ohms
    » 2-, 3-, or 4-channel output
    » 4-ohm stable in bridged mode

    Sorry if the answer to this is obvious, but i searched around and can not figure out how to wire this. Can someone help me out?

    ^Ditto.
    Attach one speaker per channel, you've got enough power for components in the front a rear fill in the back.

    sorry theres 4 of em, but they are 4 ohms, and the amp is rated at 4x40 into 4 ohms, and 4x50 into 2 ohms, and the nominal input on the speakers is 50watts, anyway to solve this ?

    giving them 10W under RMS wont do much.
    Like mrray13 said, 1 speaker per channel.
    Its not hard at all

    roger dont make this any more difficult than it is to get a noticible difference in performance you would need to double the amps output which would cook those speakers. to put it another way 90% of the time you are listening to them they will be getting under 30 watts of power anyway.

    nominal is the same as rms, like supa said.


    u could power those speakers (any speaker) with just 1 watt of power, they just wouldn't be loud.


    u have 4 6x8's rated for 50wrms...u have an amp that puts out 40wrms @4 ohm into 4 channels...it's a perfect match. 40wrms is plenty for running mids to highs, especially if u don't have subs. ur set-up will be plenty loud and as long as u don't crank the gains, it will just about live forever.

    Im glad to hear you say that that is a perfect match (4 Pioneer TS-A6880R's + Alpine MRP-F240) cause im about run the same set up...when I finally get the amp paid off.
