    Hi,
    I am about to purchase some outdoor patio speakers. Kicker KB6000w, they are 75w per speaker. I was wondering what is the minimum amount of power I can get away with running them at? Say if I buy an old amp with 50w per channel. Will that run them ok or will it affect the sound quality. Also if I buy a power amp at 4ohm, 75w per channel, how much power do I lose trying to run the 8ohm speakers on it. Sorry if this a silly question, not really an area of expertise for me. TIA
