I looked at Clarions myself, but a DD unit.
I can't seem to find the preout voltage specs for any of there HU anywhere.
Am I just getting old and blind or does anyone else have this issue

Then use the $$$ you'd spend on 2 8W7's for really good front speakers (3 ways maybe) and power them with the 4 channel bridged to 2 channels.....adding more drivers for cosmetic reasons is

Put the 13W7 in the correct ported box with 1,500W and you may shake your car apart.....

My $0.02 worth.....
