Hello all. Let me refresh everyone's memories as to what I have so far.
Orion amp 100X4 rms
two sets of ex3560 polk components 6 1/2
Pioneer head unit
I'm wondering what the next step for my system should be. I'm basically beating myself over the head for buying component speakers. I wish someone would have grabbed me by the neck and said "Look, they don't produce bass, at all, okay!" But the weird thing is, everyone says something different. Even on Cructchfield's product advisor it says that component systems can create forceful bass, I'm pretty sure they used the word forceful. I'm guessing the best thing to do would be to buy a subwoofer. It wouldn't cost that much but I kind of hate my speakers, so I was thinking of switching them with coax speakers that might produce some low end.
Will I be spreading the amp too thin if I cut the components down to 50X4 instead of 100X4?-while sending the other 200 watts to a subwoofer...
Is 200 watts enough for, say, an Alpine 10" type S?
I'm still having the problem of exaggerated high end notes, ie. ear splitting 's' sounds on half of my music. Turning the gain down seemed to help some, I think I'll turn it down even more. It seems that sending 50X4 instead of 100X4 to the speakers would help that problem, although I could be wrong.
I really don't understand why the ex3560's would ask for 100 watts rms, they sound like they're pushing 10 watts.
What would you all do?:)
