Amp and Door Speakers to Amp

Sorry, Title should be Sub and Door Speakers to Amp

I am trying to find out if I can hook up my door speakers to the same amp that is running my 10" Sub. My door speakers are Infinity and the numbers are
60W RMS
180W Peak
Impedance: 4ohm

Now my Amp is a 4 channel 100Wx4. Channel 1 and 2 are bridged to run my 10" Sub. Can I use Channels 3 and 4 to run my 2 door speakers or would I have to get a seperate amp to do that?

Thanks

You could use one channel for you front speakers and the other channel for your rear speakers.

you could... yes, but don't expect the sub or the speakers to sound their best.
they will make sound though..and you should atleast be using the whole amp anyways

try this.. bridge both sets of channels... now use those two to power your infinitys. start with your gains at minimum and set your highpass filter for 65hz, readjust gains to just below any distortion that you hear at 3/4 vol. if ist not loud enough for you yet (without distortion) adjust the highpass a bit higher then reajust the gain higher. i have the same speakers and they love power.. they rock hard and loud very clean.

I was running mine off of 100w x2 underrated usacoustics (zed) amp. they could have use more! it woke them up and they kicked out the midbass. (i had previously underpowered them because i didn't know what i know now.)

whats your sub rated for? rms wise.. you should probably get a separate amp anyway if you want the sub to do work.

One problem is though, you cant have the bass filter on for the sub, which the sub won't sound good and its bad on them!
