Question Amp and Speakers

Im running a Clarion DB225 50x4 head unit with stock Pioneer 6" in the doors and Clarion 6x9's on the parcel shelf.

The rear 6x9's are 220W max.
I have just bought a Clarion APX400.2 amp, with 400W Max power.

i was just wondering whether i could get anybodies opinion if the rear speakers should be able to handle the amp without blowing up!

Im not going to have the amp Bridged so there will be 100W to each rear speaker.

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated, thanks

- Ace

Since Max power means nothing I'd guess the RMS power is 100 watts. When bridged the amp puts out 100rms, it would be save to set it up with this combination.

I tend not to have the sensitivity set to 70%, then you wont over drive the speaker and it will sound better. :)

LTDHO's right, a very common trap for begginers in car audio is that they look at the max power, which is essentially useless information. Always look at RMS power, which is how much the equipment can handle/produce continuously :)

Thanks for your help guys...

I have installed the amp and it works very good...
I can now turn my volume up 25+ without it distorting!
The bass is also coming out much louder and clearer

I made sure that the gain was not turned up to much to protect those important 6x9s

Thanks

GO CLARION!
