Ok, I ordered these KS6.2s today without thinking everything through. My head unit puts out 50 watts to 4 channels which may be a little underpowered for those speakers. I was thinking about getting a ZX200.2 to power those in the front and upgrade my rear speakers to just the ds series and leave them powered by the head unit to avoid destroying the sound stage. Then I got to thinking, is that even possible? Can you run two of your speakers off the head unit and two off of an amp?
As you can tell, I'm still learning when it comes to car audio but I plan on installing these myself.

That stuff's out of my price range. I paid half the price crutchfield has them listed for.

I figured as much.

If I run a multi-channel and have KS speakers front and back, the backs won't overpower the fronts will they?

My stock battery and alternator are not going to like this.

The stock battery and alternator will be fine. There's 2 ways to control the speakers so the rear's don't overpower the fronts.

1. If you're head unit has front and rear RCA outputs, run both sets, then you can use the fader on the head unit to make it right.

2. If #1 doesn't apply because you're head unit only has one set, the amp will have a gain control (input sensitivity) that you can adjust to lower the output of the rear channels.
