I'm new to the world of car audio electronics and everything. I replaced all 4 door speakers in my 97 honda accord LE about 2 years ago at best buy and for some reason one of my speakers in the front stopped working. I do like to put my volume up high sometimes but I'm not sure if thats the cause. It became fuzzy for about 2 months and eventually stopped working all together.
Recently I bought a pair of Sony Xplod 6.5 inch XS-R1644 4 way speakers (270 watt peak, for the front and also
a pair of Pioneer 6" X 9" 5-Way Speakers, 600W/80W RMS (I think. 2 different sites said 40 RMS and 80 RMS so Im not sure) for the back
I also purchased a SONY XPLOD XSGTX120L CAR AUDIO 12 INCH SUB WOOFER 4 OHM 1000 W peak 300 W RMS
And the last thing I purchased was an 800 watt Sound Storm SSL F4.800
From what I understand (unfortunately after I already bought everything), Underpowering your speakers and subwoofer can be just as dangerous because of clipping? Well while reading up on the amp I saw that RMS is only 85W per channel. Its 4 channels and I planned on asking best buy (because i am just not confident at all when it comes to installation. even after installing a stupid door speaker my window stopped working) to install the front two speakers on channel 1, back two speakers on channel 2, and the subwoofer on channels 3 and 4. Do you think that this is going to be alright or just simply horrible idea that could ruin all my speakers? If there is only 85 Watts per channel and the subwoofer needs 300 then thats only half it will get. What do you think? Will it be ok as long as I dont try to blow the crap out of it, or should I stop while I'm ahead?
Really all I wanted to do was improve sound quality. I really like the pioneer 5way speakers. I tried 4 way sonys and the bass was great but I really just love a clear full sound with nice highs and things that make you feel like your actually in the music. But I also am working on a part time budget as well. Anyways sorry that this is much longer than it needs to be and I really appreciate any advice or input that will help me get started on this hobby!
