    speaker setup?

    need help with what speakers, amp and sub to put in my mustang. want to get one 12" sub cause of trunk space, and 4 new 6" X 8".

    i have the sony xplod head unit 52 X 4 watts.
    just picked up the sound blaster sound card.

    wondering if i should get a mulit channel amp or get an amp to power just the sub and let the head unit power the 6" X 8"'s ? how much power should the amp i'm going to get have, brand, etc?

    going to take a trip to the flea market tomorrow and i want to be able to possibly purchase something cause they tend to have pretty low prices.

    i jut bought a sony xplod 12" sub. That's the only thing i plan on powering with the amp. this is the specs on the sub. http://www.sounddomain.com/sku/SONXSL121P5

    i got a jensen XA 4100 amp w channel.

    power per channel
    output power at 4 ohms:
    4 X 100 watts peak
    4 X 50 watts RMS

    2 ohms:
    4 X 166 watts peak
    4 X 83 watts RMS

    Bridged Power at 4 ohms:
    2 X 300 watts peak
    2 X 150 watts RMS

    will this be fine or will i need a different amp?

    if it is bridgeable in 2-ohms and your sub has DVCs thats the way to go otherwise just bridge it in 4-ohms.
