I have done many of my own setups in the past and am pretty knowledgeable on the wiring for the subs and all. Something I have never done is run 2ohm components. I have always ran straight 4 ohm off all channels.
My question is how to wire the 2 ohm and 4 ohm speakers?
I have this amp:
MB Quart DSC 480 4-channel A/B Amplifier
RMS Power Rating:
4 ohms: 80 watts x 4 chan.
2 ohms: 160 watts x 4 chan.
Bridged, 4 ohms: 320 watts x 2 chan.
And I am looking to pick up these components for the front:
RE XXX Series 2-Way Car Component System 6.5"
Peak: 600 watts per set / 300 watts each side
RMS: 300 watts per set / 150 watts each side
2 ohms impedance.
Not sure what rear coaxials I am going to do.
Now if I decide to run rear coaxials, do I NEED to run 2 ohm coaxials? Or can I run 4 ohm to the rear to keep my rear output to 80x4? I am just not sure if I can split the amp up in the resistance it is pulling and how it affects the power output. Are the channels independent?
Now this is a long shot but I have seen people are severly overpowering the XXXs. Can I bridge the amp to power the components (and buy 4 ohm set) and push 320 to them (no rear speakers off amp), or is this way overpowering them? I take it this amp is over ratted. If I do go that route, do I "y" split the front RCAs to plug into all 4 channels, or do I just run the front RCAs into the front channel?
Thanks for any and all help, and or recommendations.
