    4 KICKER K5.2. on 2ch Amp?

    I have 2 sets of KICKER K5.2. components on the way and no dough for a 4 channel amp. I have a Kenwood Kac-7251 2ch amp rated at 150w x 2 @4ohms... Will my new speakers loose all hope for great SQ running @ 2ohm or 8ohms off this amp?

    It will work. Wire them to 2-ohms and you should get about 180-200W per channel. It's rated at 230Wx2 @ 2-ohms, but the amp is slightly overrated. So each speaker will see roughly 80-90W, plenty of power.

    Often imitated, never duplicated.

    Yeah but, how will the SQ be @ 2 ohms...That's the question.

    SQ will be the same as running them at 4 ohms. Even though the distortion is doubling, it is still below audible levels as long as you keep the amp within it's safe operating range, meaning no clipping, gains adjusted correctly.
    Life: It's the ultimate sin; a game with no rules that you're expected to win
