    2x Pioneer TS-W250R 10" Subs w/ Alpine MRV-M500 Amp

    Speaker Power Concerns

    Alright, so I have ordered the amp and all the wiring, etc. I just need to go pick the speakers up. When I wire them using the MRV-F300, my plan was to bridge the amp. My speakers are 4 ohm, and the amp runs 50 Watts x4 @4 ohms or 75 Watts x4 @ 2 ohms, and my amp bridges. If I am doing my math correctly, this means I can bridge the amp so it sees a 2 ohm load, and with 2 channels per speaker, they should receive 150 Watts per speaker, right?

    Oh ok. I have subs, so ive got the speakers on a HPF already. What do you recommend setting the filter to?

    Oh ok, cool. I hear a lot of people saying that under-powering speakers can cause clipping and damage them. My Pioneer AVH-X4800BS puts out 14 Watts RMS per channel. I guess my last concern is will that affect the speakers?

    So I'm thinking of just getting a second MRV F300 and biamping the speakers. Is there any concerns i should be aware of? And I assume that at this point I'll want to upgrade the factory wiring in my car for the speakers?

    Speaker Power Concerns

    Hi all, I was originally looking at the Pioneer TSD6802R speakers for my front and rear doors and was going to match them to an Alpine MRV-F300 amp. The Alpine runs 75W RMS @ 2 Ohms and 50W RMS @ 4 Ohms, and the speakers play in the range of 2-60W RMS, I've since switched to looking at some other speakers after being blown away by them in the shop... The newer speakers I was looking at are the new line from Pioneer, the TS-D68F which can run up to 80W per speaker. If I match these to an MRV-F300, am I going to get enough power? I've read that it's good to have an amp that can handle more so that it doesn't have to work as hard... Thoughts? Much appreciated!

    Thank you! I'll probably end up getting this! I'm learning more every day

    I was looking at the Alpine MRV line at one point, but I was under the impression that having an amp too powerful for your subs wasn't a great idea as it could blow them. Sorry that I'm still new to this, I've never had any of this explained to me, just what I've found through my own research and from wiring it myself.

    I've been looking for a new amp ever since my old Kenwood blew I've got two Pioneer TS-W250R 10" They are SVC 4-ohm each, and I wanted to wire them as a 2-ohm load, and I've been looking at a few different amps. I don't have a lot of money, but I can go up to about $150. I've been looking at the JVC KS-AX3201D. Is it any good? Or any other ideas? Thanks in advance!
  11. I recently purchased the 2.0L base model of the 2013 Acura ILX and want to put in my pioneer stereo, amp, and subs, but can't find a wiring harness or dash kit anywhere. Has anyone had any luck with this?
