    4 speakers on a 2 channel amp

    if i do 4 infinity perfect component system speakers at 4ohm that take 100 rms on my performance teknique ICBM772 amplifier, would anything bad happen?

    the amp has a 175x2 channels rms and i dont know what kinda ohms on it, but can this work? i would hook all 4 speakers up to it, and lose my fade but keep stereo sound.

    any ideas on this, or will the ohms allow it, or do i need to buy a 4 channel amp, or WHAT?

    buy a 4 channel for simplicity sake. You can wire your speakers in series, but i would not reccomend it. or just drive your front speakers with the amp and let the hu handle the back speakers. or buy a seperate amp for your back speakers while using the one you have for you fronts. its up to you.

    if you put all 4 speakers on that amp it would be ~200w rms per channel (i know cause i just got rid of mine). i still have my icbm 774 i just got it replaced so ill sell it fer 70 bucks, it looks good with both 2ch and 4ch

    no the rms is about 175 @4 ohm x2channels

    and that icbm sounds kinda nice, but i think mine would work fine
    i would lose the fade, but who cares... my rear seats arent enough to put people back there anyway. and anyone who doesnt wanna hear my music (* they want me to fade it to front or something) they would be a moron because i have a kick *** sub in teh back, then i would just turn it up and kick them outta my car.

    but you think my setup is fine?
