    no...running an amp to your stock speakers will be fine. There are limits though. You also keep in mind if you are sending a full range signal to your stockers. If you add a sub and only send 80hz and up to your stockers they will be MUCH better off.

    It's easier to "blow" a speaker with too LITTLE power than it is with more power.

    quoted from the aforementioned q and a

    Q: Will I blow my speakers if I "under" power them?

    A:
    Another one of those myths I keep seeing repeated all the time but I believe it is just because some have not actually had this explained before. This one came from people blowing speakers while using amps that were rated less than what the speaker(s) could handle and blaming it on "under" powering. A very simple answer that dispels this myth is "if that were the case, every time you turned the volume down you would blow the speakers"! :eek: Let's say you had a speaker rated at 200 watts rms and your amp produced 100 watts rms. When an amp goes into "heavy" clipping it can "theoretically" produce twice its rated power so you could "theoretically" send 200 watts to that speaker when clipping the amp. This will NOT blow the speaker (sans a defective speaker or inaccurate rating) since the speaker is capable of handling that amount of power and it doesn't "know" if that power is from a "clipped" source. Now let's say you have a 200 watt rms speaker and a 150 watt rms amp. Under heavy clipping this amp could "theoretically" produce 300 watts which can blow a speaker rated at 200 watts rms since that is more power than the speaker is rated to handle. In these cases people would state "I blew the speaker because I was under powering it when in fact as you can see by the example they actually overpowered it.

    BTW, clipping is murder on tweeters due to the increase in high frequency content (this is what happens during clipping and not that myth you may have heard about "DC current" or the speaker "stopping" due to the wave being cut off etc ;)) so the above does not apply! (part of this was based on info I received from several audio engineers as well as testing I did on my own after learning about it and if you'd like more detailed info I have it :)).

    thats interesting. i put in a 200 watt rms amp and it was HELL but whateva.. it works. im gona get a new HU then speakers. i guess ill re think the rms power. i was planing on getting 85 rms speakers.. would this clipping thing, whateva that is, blow them? it a 4 channel btw, so ~50 watt per speaker
