4 channel amp....1 set of speakers...what should i do?

I have decided to take out the rear fill in my accord. So i will be running 1 sub in the rear and 1 set of focal 165K's in the front. Since i already have a seperate amp for the sub, what should i do with the existing two channels on the amp? I was planning to bridge the two channels and provide more power to the components, but am not sure if they can handle 2x400 watts. The 4 channel amp i have is a 4x100 (PPI PC4800).

Any ideas?

I'd ditch the focal's, and bi-amp a raw driver set using Scanspeak Revelator's in fabricated kicks in doors with LPG tweeters in an on-axis location near the mids with custom crossovers.

Other than that, you can't do much unless you're adding drivers. 100 watts is fine with the focal's.

Very nice choice of raw drivers... those would take care of ppl who need immense midbass... but the LPGs.. are great if you can grab the soft dome versions.. or even better are the max fids (if a 30mm tweet isnt a problem ) Focals have that intricate and overally in-your-face details upper midrange which turned me away from them... morels or dyns would be a great choice for a driver that loves power.

scan speak, vifa, peerless are danish made raw drivers which are used in countless number of pre-fab home audio speakers. if you want info go register at elitecaraudio.com and search for scan speak.. they'll have more than enough info for you to get into. www.madisound.com, www.speakercity.com, www.solen.ca all sell raw drivers, etc... and have info on pricing.. scan revs are about $225 per driver I believe..

I've decided to biamp the focals and see how they sound. I am looking for a decent active crossover for under $200 bucks (around $150 preferred new or used).

Any suggestions??
