45 watts rms and 75 peak

    The receiver puts out 45X4

    they can handle no more than 75 watts. 75 is max, but if you run max all the time, it will burn out your voice coils. Your better at 65 watts.

The problem here is there are quite a few options. to find out what you have, the radio needs to be pulled and the model number and sku need to be read. from that you can call the dealer and the parts guys should be able to give you all of the specs you need and be able too quite quickly. i will give you 2 phone numbers 417 623 5660(joplin ford in misourri, ask for mark) 417 629 6778 ask for marty and tell him kori told you to call. anything you need to know can be answered right there.

100 w radio, if you have the same package its 7 speakers with a 90w amp. super woofer total output 190 watts

    Can you read? Your speakers support 190w. cut and dry. if you want more BOOM BOOM you need better speakers, amp. Its not to hard to realize the factory only puts in whats needed. best of luck.

    Sounds like you are fishing for the answer you want. Its 190w total output and the speakers will not handle more than that.

Hi,I have two 250w speakers at 8ohms ,could someone tell me if I need to get a amp with higher watts than the speakers?k


Speakers are rated either at RMS (root mean square) average power or Peak Power. An RMS of about 125 watt is equivalent to 250 watt peak. To match the radio and speakers they both need to be consistent. Also do not be confused with total radio power out vs per channel.

So if the speakers are 250 watt peak power then a radio with 125 watt per channel or 250 watt peak per channel would be a good match.
If the speakers are RMS 250 watt then the radio would be 250 RMS/channel and usually with a four channel radio a total of 1000W RMS
With that much power the neighbors should hear you coming!

Watts rms?


It is the root mean square (abbreviated RMS or rms), roughly 0.707 of the peak wattage of an AC source. Crutchfield lists it at >power range: 2-110 watts RMS (450 watts peak power)

How can i get more power through 8 ohm speakers?


In addition to the impedance rating of a speaker, there is also a wattage rating. Ideally, power output of the amplifier should not exceed the power handling rating of the speakers. The input impedance of the speakers should match the amplifier output impedance for maximum power transfer (Rin = Rout where R is resistance in Ohms). Supplying more power or wattage to the speaker than it can handle will result in distortion, and if the output of the amp is high enough and present long enough, it will damage the voice coil of the speaker. Make sure that when comparing wattage ratings, you are comparing the same rating between amps & speakers. Watts can be expressed three different ways: "Peak", "Peak to Peak" and the industry standard "RMS". The relationship is such: an industry standard value of "70 Watts RMS" (70W RMS) equals "100 Watts Peak" (100W P) *and* also is the same as "200 Watts Peak to Peak" (200W P-P). Furthermore, there is no such thing as 200W "Music Power" (but is often expressed this way to inflate the RMS wattage rating (and usually is close to the P-P rating). A speaker is an electrical device, so most the things that happen to electrical devices when over powered can happen to speakers and amplifiers, too.

Increasing the signal source level (input signal to the amp via volume control) in an attempt to get more audio power to the speaker can overdrive the amplifier - resulting in "clipping". This is plainly heard as "muddied" sound. The otherwise loud, crisp, clean passages in music end up sounding garbled and unpleasant when an amplifier is over driven in this way. This can damage both the amp and the speaker.

Cheap amps with higher THD (total harmonic distortion) ratings sound worse than their counterparts with a lower THD rating - when all other variables are the same. You'll pay extra for lower THD values.

You might be able to make a speaker seem louder by positioning the speakers against a wall, on the floor, etc. Experiment; as it can make a significant difference in sound levels and low frequency bass sounds.

I hope this was helpful!

Mtx audio 4252 amplifier


Hello freshman_fox,

63 watts X 2 @ 4-ohms.
125 watts X 2 @ 2-ohms
250 watts X 1 @ 4-ohms bridged

Since no power rating is given @ 2-ohms in bridged mode, it means that the amp is only stable to 4-ohms.

The manual does not specify a peak power, but since RMS is about 70.7 of peak, that makes it 353.5 watts.

You can download the manual from here. Hope this helps.

New Radio too powerful for 15 Watt speakers?


Hello mike_mccuske,

The OEM speakers will still work OK with your new Pioneer. Just don't turn it up too loud. Of course you'll get improved sound if you replace the speakers. Your Pioneer's RMS power is 14 watts, and the peak (maximum) power is 50 watts. The door speakers in a 2000 Honda Civic are 6.5" and you can get a set of Pioneer speakers, the TS-G1642R's, from Crutchfield for less than $50. Their RMS power range is 2-30 watts and they can handle a peak power of up to 180 watts.

Hope this helps.

Auto decks and speakers


That's a 200W total output, which in a four-speaker system means 50W to each speaker. Keep in mind that this is a peak output, not a continuous power output. When you shop for amps or head units, pay more attention to the RMS rating (most of the better brands will give you both). This is the amount of power the unit puts out continuously. The peak power rating is how much it can put out in a burst. Similarly for speakers, buy based on the RMS rating more than the peak rating - you want to know how much power you can safely pump into the speakers continuously - the RMS rating will give that to you.

By definition, RMS value would be (peak rating) x(.707) but for ease of use, look at a peak value and figure on an RMS (continuous) rating of about half that - it allows you to err on the side of caution.

For what it's worth, 25W continuous to each speaker may not seem like much, but a lot of factory stereo systems put 15W or less to each speaker. 25W by comparison is a significant step up.

Logic alx1280 2 ch amp


Amps can be rated based on their RMS power or their peak power. In this case, the amp's rated RMS power is 300x2 at 2 ohms (total 600W RMS) with a peak power rating of 600x2 (1200W peak). For the most part, peak power means almost nothing.

If your head unit didn't have RCA preamp outputs, you would used the standard speaker outputs from the head unit and connect them to the hi input plug of the amp.

Speakers


400 watts delivered to 300 watt speakers the only way to do this would be to wire two subwoofers in series so that the power needed to drive them will be 600 watts to max, however this will increase your impedance on the speaker (8 ohms) load so what you can do to compensate is get an 8 ohm 600 watt resistor and put it in parallel with the speakers you will then have 4 ohms of impedance at a total capacity of 600 watts of power In other words the amplifier won't blow these out now.
