I'm no expert but i think mono block amps are strictly for bass
your stereo won't be able to push 6 6x9's to their potential... i think you're gonna need a 4 channel amp for mids and highs..

Don't quote me on that, I could be wrong.. wait for someone else to answer your question lol

Some mono blocks have speaker level inputs and outputs. If it has outputs you should be good with 6 if you don't drop the ohm load beyond what the amp can handle.
If no outputs then you'll need a amp built specifically for mids and highs. Which would sound the best for what your lookin for.

You're better off getting a 4 channel amp. The load will be too low for that amp, even if it says it's 1 ohm stable I seriously doubt it is.

Pretty much the point I was trying to make , I shoulda been more direct lol.

I can run cabin speakers and/or subs off my Kenwood mono block but the ohm load is too low unless I run series to parallel to raise then lower the ohm load.

Example: 4-6*9's , run two at series then them parallel to the amp and if they was 4ohm, at the amp it will give you 4ohms. (Correct???)

4ohm+4ohm/series = 8ohm
8ohm+8ohm/parallel = 4ohm

It's been a while but if I remember correctly this equation is true.

you told me i could hook it up the 6x9s to that mono amp with no problem Just gotta make sure the crossover is set right on the amp so you don't get too much bass coming thru it.but i just posted it here to double check cause i dont know shit bout this stuff but i appreciate the help tho

Sorry I don't have a link for you, maybe try sonic electronics.
As for wattage just combine the rms ratings for the speakers and find a amp with similar ratings. A good Kenwood , Alpine , Rockford fosgate ect.. will sound nice with what you got and use your mono block for a good sub/subs.
That's what I would do.
