    Ive got a set of NVX VSP65 components for front speakers and a single JL6w3 id like to use as a midbass sub. I have the KTP445u that will be powering them. I know i can run each speaker off a their own channel. My question is can i bridge the other 2 channels and run the JL that way? I have an 8" sub that is handling the bass duties so id just be using the jl to add some additional mid bass to compliment the components. Also not sure if it matters but the JL will be going in a enclouser in front of the shifter under the AC controls firing into the center of the cab and my Sub is in a center console firing at the windshield. please feel free to let me knoiw if my line of thinking isnt even a good one. If itll make everything sound like garbage id like to hear any advice you guys have.

    Thank you

    I would say yes you can wire it that way but for your location you might get cleaner sound from one channel. This is based on my very limited knowledge of this stuff, I just think by bridging you will turn your mid into more of a sub.

    If you're really using that 6.5 as a midbass, it's going to localize most of the frequencies you ask it to play. You're probably gonna have a funky sound stage. But yes you can bridge 2 of those channels of the power pack and use the other 2 stereo. Those NVX components are what's gonna make it sound like garbage though. I used the VSP525 kit for a spell - couldn't wait to yank it out. The woofers had very little travel but it looks like you intend to use them mostly as midranges so you may be better off. Those tweeters though - harshest I've heard in a long time. The X series kit however is quite nice. It's made by SB Acoustics.

    Thats great i can run my componenrts andf the jl off the same amp.especially since i didnt really think of if it could be done till after the bought the amp. I bought the speakers because everything ive read said great things anout the V line. And youre the first person that has said anything negative about these speakers Well ive got them already so i might as well give them a shot. Thanks for the help i appreciate your insight .
