- 140W x 1 RMS 4 Ohms Bridged
- 70W x 2 RMS 2 Ohms
- 50W x 2 RMS 4 Ohms

my questions are

1- im running  50rms/150w peak jbl compoent on cross overs to tweeters in the front doors and 25rms/180Wpeak alpine coaxial in the dash (probably the wrong set up but i didnt know much about speakers ) , so how can i get all this running up on the amp ?

2- what awg/guage wiring kit would i want ?

3- whos made up a nice boot build for their amp mk3 ? , pics ,

im not planning on runing a sub yet, so just want to get my jbls working nicely if anything get some bass from them , im not bass crazy or id buy a sub , just making use of a free amp i was given , ( have got another 2ch amp but its a jet force 350W peak piece of pooh just sitting in the draw but idealy only want to run one amp)

Components are a mid, tweet and crossover.

Ditch the co-axs, put the mid in the door, tweeter in the dash, crossover somewhere in the middle hidden away.

Make a false floor, carpet it, secure the amp to it and hide the cables. Jobs a goodun.

I'm just down the road from you in abingdon so If you want a hand let us know and you can pop over sometime and we'll get it in for ya.
