    Recomendations anyone?

    Hey,

    I am a new member for the site and am in need of a little information to do with my car stereo.

    I hav recently bought most of the components for my stereo which is soon to go into my 1st car. A 1989 Toyato Camry CSX. I was'nt really worried about quality of the whole system so i didnt go all out and spend a heap of money.

    Deck/Head unit- Eonon EO833 (can no longer find it on the eonon website so here is a link on ebay) http://cgi.ebay.com.au/833-CAR-iPOD-...QQcmdZViewItem
    Cost about $300 all up i as far as i can remember. Ive fully tested it with a power supply and all works fine.

    Speakers- (Front) For the fronts, i bought a pair of near new Alpine SPS-100A 4" Coax 2 way speakers off my brother for $50

    (Rear) For the rears i have a pair off Mb Quart DSD 216 6.5" splits

    Subs- Now i originally wasnt going to buy subs, but i spotted a cheap pair on ebay (they were still brand new) and figured their better than nothing. So for subs i have two Visonik 500W RMS 1000W max subs in a non-ported enclosure


    If i had the money, i would have got a system that was primarily Alpine or Mb Quart with an Eclipse deck, however it wasnt the case

    I am not yet sure of the specifications for the amp i want and was wondering if i could have some suggestions on the specs

    Regards,

    You say that you have got the pair of splits in the rear? One question, WHY?!

    Put the splits in the front and the 4" in the rear. This would for a start make it sound so much better.

    I recommend you get a good quality 4 channel amp, amp the splits in the front, and then bridge the rear channels for the subs. And have the 4" running off the headunit because they are only rear fill.

    What RMS rating are the MB Quart's?

    Ok for starters, the splits wont fit up the front, not even in the doors, 2ndly, even all the audio installation places here usually install the larger speakers in the rear.

    Both the alpines and the Mb Quart's are good sounding speakers (yes ive tested them) and its just alot easier to install the smaller 1s under the dash (where the stockys are) and the Mbs as rears.

    The Mbs are 50W RMS and 120 max

    Well, each to his own.....
    But most set the "sound stage" to the front of the car, anything in the rear is just rear fill. Unless they are played at loud volume with the fronts turned down, you will not hear them well. The reason installers place bigger speakers in the back is there is more room for them without custom work (factory mounting). I have no speakers in the back besides 2 12's in the trunk. I have door speakers in the front and kick panels all imaged with the driver in mind... If you look at most audiophile's rides, this is what you will find with minimum rear fill if any at all. But, there is no "wrong way" to image your system. Its all in what you like.

    Yeh im not too worried about quality.. If need be i'll just put the rears louder. I AM also contemplating just running the wires for the tweaters up the front.

    So any sugguestions for an amp to just run the subs? Not really interested in running all the speakers off it. Just the subs at this stage. My next car will hav a proper system

    Well your subs are dual voice coil and run a 4 ohm load......
    so if your going cheap and still want a decent amp....
    I would use a hifonics 500 watt mono block wired in parallel........
    The amp is one ohm stable and will give you 500 wats at 1 ohm rms.... (real power not just what the box says).
