PBR300 X2 or X4?

I've decided on the components I want to use, but I need advise on whether to run two or four speakers on my 2009. I'm going to use Infinity Kappa 62.11i's and a PBR300. I would add pods and speakers to my lowers later on, if there was a huge difference in sound, but the bad thing is that I may or may not want the lowers on in the summer. Peak riding season. For those of you running these set ups, is there enough difference in sound to run four speakers? Thanks...

Oh yea, 4 is a unbelievable difference, I am running 8 Infinity Kappas, and 2 soundstream amps. You will be amazed in the difference going from 2 to 4 speakers will do for you.

That's what I was thinking. Just didn't know if 4 at 75w each would be much better than 2 at 150w each. If so, I could get the 4 channel amp and expand later.


Anyone else?

The PBR300x4 amp is strictly for 4ohm speakers only keep that in mind.

PBR300x2 is a better amp

does 2ohm, and has a better adjustment on the crossover, plus a PEQ dial option

I have 4 speakers ( 4ohm - wired to parallel - 2ohm ) on the front amp

2 on the other amp

more speeakers helps - because is has to be a little over the top on a bike to hear it clearly - and makes more efficient use of the power

The 300x2 is the better amp IMO, and I've had both. Also the Infinity's are 2ohm speakers so the 300x2 would be the obvious choice, it would be wise to run an additional amp if you're going to add more speakers.

Thanks for the replies. X2 it is! I might add speakers later, but it will be a while.
