Hey all -
Okay, so I am still a newbie when it comes to the whole "sound system upgrade", so I am up to this point in the process:
I have read that you need to make sure that the power output from your head unit "matches" the rated power for the speakers you have. While I understand the concept, would someone please tell me HOW you make sure this is the case?
I.E. - I am looking to buy the Pioneer DEH-1100MP (CD receiver with built-in MOSFET amplifier (14 watts RMS CEA-2006/50 peak x 4 channels) and Polk db461p speakers (power range: 4-50 watts RMS (150 watts peak power).
Do they "match"? How do you know? Could they match better if I added something else to the mix?
I am guessing they do because it reads that the head unit is pushing 14 watts RMS and the speakers can take 4-50 watts RMS... am I reading that correctly? If so, then maybe this head unit is a little weak for these speakers?
Thanks everybody - I appreciate it...
