Default will it work?

I have recently bought some speakers for my car. I have a 2 channel 800watt kenwood amplifier.
2 12" 700watt max, 175 watt rms subwoofers
2 6X9 three way 300 watt rated power mids

Default very difficult

Well, I personally think this amp will not be usefull for all speakers. If the amp is bridgeable to 2 ohms, connect only the 2 subs in paralel to the bridge output and see if the amp is stable.

If soooooo, You need to buy another amp in order to power up the remaining spks.

It is not possible to power up all speakes, specially for a 2 channel amp.

If radio has good output, conect all speakers to radio and use the amp for the subwoofers.

Watts mean nothing, hook them up as you would and make sure gain is set properly.

Oh and I also don't think you can power all of your speakers from the same amp with credible results. Split up the audio spectrum with a x-o after the deck and power with sepereate amplifiers.
