  • questions on runnin another amp to my system

    As soon as I get my new car, I will be putting my system back in! Im currently running 2 12 inch Alpine Type Rs being powered by a RF 900w Mono block. Ill be also adding underglow, and replacing the factory battery with a red top which was in my other car. I plan on buying a monte carlo which has a 104 amp stock alt. already. I will be swapping the front and rear speakers with 4-way pioneers in the front and 5-way in the rear. I was thinkin of adding a small amp just to push the speakers, but i was undecided if i wanted to add another one to push the subs also; Ill also be bypassing the factory amp! what would i need to add another amp and anyone kno any good small amps to add that are reasonably priced? Ill be wiring the big amp with this...

    Help, Please!!!!

    4 way = overkill
    5 way = beating a dead horse

    Why don't you get some nice 2-way components instead? It'll sound a LOT better.

          So you're asking about what, a four channel amplifier? We can't really give you any reccomendations without the specs on the speakers your using, or what you consider a 'decent' price.

            Ya, read the stickies at the top of the forum. Specifically this one: http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=82850
            Take my advice: Do not try to build a system that includes EVERY feature. Start with the basics, build it to a bug free state, and THEN add on.

                RMS (Nominal) power on those speakers is fairly low. An amplifier that can put out between 50-75 watts per channel should be fine. 'Quality' amps can be anywhere from $150 to thousands of dollars. I'll assume because of the speakers you have you're probably looking for closer to $100-$200, in which case some nice four channel amps to consider are ones by JL, Alpine, and others that i'm sure people will suggest.

                    more importantly, WHY do they have to run at max power?? Is it a race?

                          Same goes for your car engine? Rev it to max each time?

                          So you are telling us that you are more interested in total volume than sound quality?

                          Ya know, you can turn on the LOUD feature of your headunit and raise the bass and treble controls to max (do the same with your gains) to get more volume out of your system

                              So go out and buy speakers that can handle higher RMS wattage. And blow a grand.
