I am not quite sure if I understand your question but by 2 way and 4 way, I'm assuming that you mean 2 channel and 4 channel. In this case the number of channels means the number of speakers you can hook up to that particular amp. Also, if you meant 2 way and 4 way speakers, then it is the number of "speakers" in the speaker system. Meaning that with one speaker you could have a few tweeters attached to it. I hope I could help.

Which speakers (Front/Rear) to buy that match Kenwood KAC-M846 4/3/2 Channel Amplifier.

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.

We need 16amps 3pin 2way sockets. please help me from where we can procure (my mob: 09989588208

It depends on which country you are in.
It also depends on what you mean by a socket.

I'm in Australia and a normal power outlet can handle up to 10 amps.
If you put multiple appliances on one outlet and exceed 10 amps in total then you will likely blow a fuse.

If you are trying to connect an appliance that requires more than 10 amps on its own like an air conditioner then you will need to have a qualified electrician install a dedicated 15 amp circuit for you.

A 15amp wall socked (in Australia) has an over sized earth pin so that you can not connect a 15 amp appliance to a 10 amp circuit.

If you are trying to do something else then please post more information about your problem.

Turn signal flasher replacement

It is probably tucked up high and clipped out of the way of other wires.
Look for a silver fuse around the area of where you kneecap rides, behind the panel.
Try locating the 4-way (emergency) flasher by its sounds, since it will continue to work if your 2way is out, then try to find the other one --- I had a hard time finding my 2way and never did see the 4-way (I just heard it).
You may have to stand on your head but you'll find it.
