Question about Kenwood Kac-m846 4/3/2 Channel Amplifier Car Audio Amp
I do not know what speakers (Fronts/Rears) to buy as the most rear 6x9 speakers have power rating of 110 watts@ 4ohms each but amp is only 50 Watts/channel @ 4 ohms. Does that mean that the amp is highly underpowered and not suitable? Most articles say that amp power should be more than the speakers nominal input power.
I don,t no where you are reading thease articles from,I installed car audio equipment for over 40 years, Untill i retired a couple of months ago, Who ever is writeing those sort of articles does not have the slightest clue what they are talking about, It is the opposite way around, It is allway better for yor (Speakers) To handle more power then what your amp puts out, Then you will not blow the spaekers, It is best to get speakers at least 20 watts more then what your amps maximuin (RMS) Watts are, Hope this helps you out, (PS) 50 watts (RMS) Is what most people go for, It is in no means (Under) Powered.

ok i have the same amp and 1 2ohm dvc sub and was woundering the same thing but from futher research and askin sum xsperts. What i found out is that it is only one channel and even tho there are 2 (+) and 2(-) they actually connect inside the amp makein it one . so if u wanted to wire sumthing parralel u wouldnt have to hook wires from one coil to the other on the speaker , u can just hook it up to the amp. so basically both +'s and negatives on the amp are actually one within it so all the power if you only use one set of them and if u wanna add more subs its just easier to add to the amp by using the xtras .

it sounds to me like its burnt.but with some amps the screws that hold it in place have to be screwed into the car chassisfor grounding. be careful not to srewe into hidden wires.
