    I really didn't know how to label the title, so sorry if its a bit difficult to understand.

    My current console (clarion cx501) is bumping 50x4 to each of my doorspeakers, (2 up front, 2 in back).

    My front speakers are http://www.soundsolutionsaudio.com/s...252dAxial.html (85 rms)

    My rears are http://www.soundsolutionsaudio.com/s...-Coaxials.html (85 rms)

    I was thinking about getting an amplifier to power the speakers to their full potential, but i have a question.

    Since the console is pumping 200 watts total, is it possible i can get it to wire 85 watts rms to each front door speaker, then get a dual channel amp to power the 2 back door speakers???

    Sorry if its a stupid question guys, my dads educating me about sound systems while we hook my nissan xterra up.

    Appreciate it.

    here made you a decent setup..

    RS = Rear Speaker ..
    FS = Front Speaker

    (you know what a crossover network is eh?)In this case .. Front speakers will give only LOW tones
    and the Rear speakers will give only HIGH tones + you got a subwoofer = more bass
    Optionaly you could add more tweeters with a 2nd amp
    crossover network

    No it's not.. you're getting about 20wrmsX4. Cooling, size, and current limits mean that any deck you get will be getting about 18-20wrms per channel. Unless it's a dual, then you get like 10 cuz they suck.

    If you're trying to get the most out of those speakers, don't bother messing around with bridging outputs and crap from the deck. You're best to just get a 4 channel and be done.. more ability to tweak and give your speakers the full power they're looking for.

    If you're planning on running a sub, set the high pass filter somewhat high to cut some of the lower notes to the speakers, then run most of your bass through the sub itself. Otherwise if you're not looking to run a sub, feel free to run as much bass as you'd like to the speakers, if they're properly powered you shouldn't run into issues with muddy sound until you physically reach the speaker's limits.
