Ive got some ice in at the moe, want to get some better kit tho.

Ive currently got -
-Standard fronts.
-Cheap 450w 6x9's

-2x 500w 2 channel Jenson Amps (One runs 6x9's, the other the subs)
-2x 10' Kenwood Tornado subs

Will prob keep the two amps and subs, so thinking of changing the 6x9 and fronts.

Was best to get? Any help good. Cheers!

Personally, I'd ditch the 6x9's and invest in some good quality 17cm components for the front end.

Obviously depends on your budget though - how much are you looking to spend?

Well said that man

I had Focal 165K Polykevlar's in the old Corsa...



Can see 'em at the back there Cracking speakers, I'd give 'em about 80-100wRMS from an amp too.

I wouldn't personally.

Ever see any SQ cars with big (if any) rear speakers? It just fecks the soundstage up.

I had those Focal's up front, and a single 12" RF Punch XLC sub and it was lurvely

The new system is only gonna be 17cm components and a single 12" too But what a fecking 12" Mwahahahaha!

Cool, makes sence.

So would i be best running them from my head unit - would this be powerful enough? 4x45 i think? or would i be best running it from my (with no rears) 'spare' amp? (Janson 2 chan. 500w)

They'll be alright from the head unit, but massively underpowered when you think about it. The head unit realistically is 4x17wRMS unfortunatly

You can use the space 2ch amp, but be careful of the output (2x250w yeah?) - you'll have to keep the gain very low down.
