I have 4 Infinity Kappa Perfect 6.1s one in each door rated at 100rms(400peak) and 2 Infinity 693.11i 6x9s rated at 110rms(330peak) per speaker. I want to try and run all six speakers off my Infinity Kappa Four amp rated at 125rms x 4 @ 4ohms, 150rms x 4 @ 2ohms, 300rms x 2 @ 4ohms bridged with an overall rating of 600rms and 1200w peak. My idea is to run all 4 Infinity Kappa Perfects in a series/parallel circuit to the front channels keeping the impedance at 4 ohms bridged at 300rms x 2 @ 4ohms giving each speaker approximately 75rms then running the Infinity Kappa 693.11i off the rear channel for 150rms x 2 @ 2ohms as the 6x9s are rated at 2 ohms. Would 75rms to each speaker be enough for the Infinity Kappa Perfect 6.1s without under powering then enough to cause damage? Currently I have 2 Infinity Kappa Perfect 6.1s on the front channels and 2 Infinity Kappa Perfect 6.1s on the rear channels giving each speaker 125rms. So my final question would be is it safe to run these 6 speakers off my Infinity Kappa Four or should I get another amp and run the 6x9s with a sub woofer instead? Any advice is appreciated, thank you.

Do you mean front left, rear left parallel and front right rear right parallel to the front left and right channels. Then 6x9s regular on rear channels? What would be the difference?

hook the front left to channel 1, the front right to channel 2, the rear left door and rear left 6x9 pos to pos and neg to neg to channel 3, the rear right door and rear right 6x9 pos to pos and neg to neg to channel 4.

guy... you are killing me. Do what I recommended you to do than put a meter on it and tell me what you read.
jsyk- if a speaker says 4 ohms generally it hovers around there but will very rarely read 4.0, and even if it does when your speaker is playing it doesnt stay at that.

here is a pic from the 12volt to help

I would still run it like that as long as you are not beating on the amp it should be able to handle it. Though to be honest full range 6x9s on the rear deck will sound terrible there are too many reflections and it would muddy up your stereo imaging pretty bad. You can put an inline resistor to raise the the resistance if your stuck on putting them in.
I am sorry I didnt read your first post carefully enough now I feel like a jerk..... even though I know I am :)

No problem. I am going to get a 3 channel amp that pushes 80 x 2 + 500 x 1 at 2 ohms and a sub which I'll run my 6x9s and sub off of. For now I'll just have my four door speakers hooked up to the Infinity Kappa Four.
