The stereo stores I've been to are confusing me with which amp(s) to buy for my system. I've almost decided to try the install by myself.
Through some research I've got 4 amp combo's in mind that fit my budget. I need to know which set up would be best based on speaker output and the fact that some will be 2ohm and others will be 4 ohm.
Here is my set up
Front - ID CXS62 v2 (2 ohm)
Mids - ID OEM's (4 ohm) - running mids due to having the speaker panel already made for it
Sub - ID Q12D4v3 (DVC 4 ohm)
Here are the amp choices I am looking at
1. DLS A5 + DLS A2 - the A5 running at 2ohm to power the CXS (at 100W each)and the IDQ12 (at 500w). The A2 will run the OEM's at 4 ohm giving them 85W each.
2. JL Audio 450/4 v2 + 500/1 v2 - the 450/2 will be running at 2ohm to power the CXS (at 150W each) and the OEM's at 4 ohm giving them 75W each. The 500/1 will be running at 2 ohm giving the IDQ12 500w.
3. Arc Audio KS900.6 - the 900.6 will be running some channels at 2 ohm and some at 4 ohm. CXS62 will get (2ohm) 100w. The OEM's will get 60w (4ohm) and the IDQ12 will get 310w (2ohm)
4. DLS RA50 - the DLS RA50 will be running some channels at 2 ohm and some at 4 ohm. CXS62 will get (2ohm) 110w. The OEM's will get 70w (4ohm) and the IDQ12 will get 365W (2ohm)
Will the last two give the OEM's enough power and should I run an amp at 4 ohm and 2ohm loads?
Which amp selection will best suit my needs.
All advise is appreciated.
Damn! That is confusing. I'd probably go with option #2, but put the 75w on the CXS62's & the 150w on the OEM's.
Then the dls ra50. It provides all the needed power to each of the components and has more power on the sub channel.Which one out of the two and why?
The OEM's are for the door. The car I bought already has door buildouts (for two 6.5") in them.Then the dls ra50. It provides all the needed power to each of the components and has more power on the sub channel.
The id oems are a second set of midbass in the front doors or rear speakers?
Which one...the RA50 or the A5 + A2 and why?i'd go with dls... under rated clean power, and they look sexy
Again which one..the KS900, RA50 or A5+A2 and why?Arc or DLS
