Hello, I'm new to this forum. I have recently installed two sets of Polk EX 3560 components-using one set of tweeters. I am going to install a 1.5 din pioneer deh-p77dh and a new amplifier. Here are the configurations I'm considering
Configuration 1-Alpine V12 5 channel amplifier model mrv-f450-which is rated at 50X4 @4ohm+a built in 200 watt mono amp @4ohm. In this configuration I would add a ten inch alpine type S subwoofer.
Configuration 2-I would simply buy an Orion or Nakamichi 100X4 @4ohm amplifier to power the components-coupled with the new head unit-and I would not use a subwoofer.
I'm just worried that if I buy the alpine, the components will be underpowered, even if I will have nice bass from the subwoofer.
I'm also worried that if I buy a 100X4 amplifier-there won't be nearly enough bass-note that I don't need a huge amount of bass, just a good, rich, punchy bass-I don't need to rattle the windows.
The Polk ex 3560 components are rated at 100 watts rms-300 peak-they don't seem any different than components that ask for 50 watts rms-are they overrated in their power handling?, would 50 watts do nicely?
Any advice would be extremely helpful-thank you:)
