I purchased 2 audiopipe 6in 300w mid low loudspeakers. They are pretty damn loud. I just purchased 2 audiopipe 6in 250w mid Low loudspeakers (came in the mail today).. 300w I couldn't find anywhereeee!! My question is, does the 50 watts really make a louder sound? Or however else I should of worded that.. I have a precision phantom 900w 4 channel amp they will be ran off.

I had the 2 300w's ran off an old pioneer amp which burnt out when I rewired it wrong

If it is this amp, http://www.precisionpower.com/html-v...ps/P900-4.html , you are at best seeing 200 watts per driver. so you will be fine.

Yes this is the exact amp. I'm also going to be running the loudspeaker horns also, 1 100w and 1 50w. Would I be fine with the 2 horns =150w, and 4 interior speakers = 1,100w? Off the 900w amp.. Audio always confused the crap out of me. Maybe I may just run the one 100w horn

Thats a little much. Assuming the Door speakers are 300w RMS and not peak. You may need to run a crossover off of the interior speakers to cut some power off the horns.

What about just 250w vs 300w speakers? Is there a difference?

This is what you need to reference. "RMS Power 125 W" , normally the RMS or constant power is half of the peak, the peak is the one thats always advertised.

125 x 2 + 150 x 2 = 550w RMS where as the amp puts out "RMS 225 x 4" @ 2 Ohm. So you should be fine.

However, i feel like i have to advise/remind. When it comes to car audio along with everything else, you get what you pay for. In my personal opinion 100$ speakers sound 10x better than 35$ Speakers. If you can return them i would, if its in the budget.

Thanks for clearing it all up. I appreciate it. Well they normally go for around $50 in the stores, and finding em online for cheaper I hoped on em

Something else to take note of is the fact that those speakers are rated at 8ohms. That amp is rated at 145W at 4ohms. Assuming it's even rated to drive 8ohm loads, you would likely only see about 90W or so at that impedance.
