  • Power the speakers: Deck or 4 channel amp?

    Hey guys just a few questions, I've been planning to do this for a while, and now that my baby is coming out of the garage I plan on doing some work (since I got my insurance pay out coming).

    The biggest question to me is, do I power my speakers with an amp, or buy a dvd deck? As I see it here are the pros and cons.

    Deck

    Pros:
    Easily accessible front loading CD/DVD
    Cheaper
    Easier to wire?

    Cons:

    Means chopping up a part of the front bezel
    Need to track down a decent DVD deck
    Not entirely sure how to wire the deck with the carputer/lcd screen

    Amp

    Pros:

    Simpler
    (Need more here)

    Cons:

    Will need to tear out existing wiring
    More expensive
    Might require an alternator


    Now, truth be told I'd rather go with something that offers a cabin accessible DVD/CD solution for when my passengers are watching multi dvd movies, it's also easier to configure with my stereo as all I will need is a wiring harness.

    I'm confused as to how I'd interface it with everything else though, this is kind of what I want it to look like (shameless ripped from another club RSX user)




    Please offer your opinions!

    Cheers
