I'm thinking about replacing my rear speakers with a pair of Sony 3 Ways that i have sitting around.
Then also running them off a amp.
The speakers are rated at 80 RMS @ 4 oms with a peak of 260 the amp is 100 watts rms @ 4 oms.
Will I be by over powering them a little or should i get a pair that are a 100 RMS.

My goal is to get more bass with out taking up trunk space with a sub.

you always want to go just above rated power so you can back the gain down and get cleaner sound so you should be pretty good man

That's what I thought because that's how my sub set-up was I bought used.
it's rated 350 but running at 400.
But I wanted to make sure that applied to regular speakers.

Is it normal for the volume from the speakers to be louder when hooked up to a amp?
Right now my backs are a lot louder then the fronts.
Or does adjusting the gain on the amp inputs take care of that?
not an expert, but that seems like an obvious answer. lol

more power does equal more volume. I would suggest turning down the gain, or adjusting the stereo to put more sound toward the front vs the back.
