ST35 lids
SPL 200L bags

I don't think that amp will push all of what you have. even with fun wiring options. you need more channels. The SPL200 will take more than 2 channel can give right off the bat.

Thanks Juice, I am actually running the Rockford T400x4ad amp now and was just talking with a guy about just adding another one of them. should give me plenty of power then, I'm thinking.

That RF am puts out the same in 4 ohm or 2 ohm and would not be enough to push those 8 inch Hertz well. I would rethink that amp! And with the choice of speakers given, a DSP would definitely be needed.

Looking at specs on bigger amps looks like theyíre pushing same or similar wattage per channel. Was thinking of adding 2-channel RF t400x2ad amp to 200L and push about 140W to 8ís and tweeters with 4 channel. Think I need more power?

What bigger amps? 140 is no where near enough for that 8", Hell I have pushed the 6.5 with 300 watts, and they will take 400.

2 ohm: ~140Watt
4 ohm: ~91Watt

NVX NVPA4 (100W @ 2 ohm)
2 ohm: ~107Watt
4 ohm: ~62Watt

4 ohm: ~140Watt

2-channel amps

I ran the mpx coax in the fairing and the SV200.1 and ST 35 in the lids,all off of 4 RF TM channels. Nowhere near loud enough at speed. For me anyway.

You have your mind made up, go with the RF amp. Your money, your bike.
