    Well i'm not going to buy it all at the same time, no harm in starting with an amplifier. If you know some budget things that are better than what I have right now, then please suggest those too. I like using my sound system for Techno type music, if that factors into a setup at all.

    Re: Amplifier Advice

    I would ditch running 4 speakers and run one decent comp set up front. Get a big decent quality 4 channel, use the front outputs to run that , and bridge the rear channels on a decent 500 watt sub in a correct ported enclosure in the back.

    What speakers/amp/sub do you recommend? I can only fit 4's in the front, because my car usually doesn't come with speakers, and there are now holes in my doors for 4's. (That kind of rhymed)

    Those speakers will just sound worse then blow if you add more power. All very terrible equipment and 4" speakers likely won't ever sound good full range

    Is there a good 4" speaker out there that you know of?

    You have a lot working against you in this equation. Unless you are willing to re-think the audio setup entirely.

    The thing to do is this.

    Create a new thread, give your budget, your specific needs/wants. And let people who are obsessed about audio give you some system choices.
    I am writing this as a friend and advocate. I look forward to making some suggestions in said thread.

    Have a good one,
    West

    4" won't do good full range in a car period. Using bad 4" drivers won't even sound good at low power or crossed over really high.

    Re: Amplifier Advice

    Dont worry about an amplifier to try and cover up poor sound with more power. Spend decent money on some quality speakers and a head unit and go from there. You can find good quality products in almost every price range but spending money on cheap, poorly made speakers will not make your car audio experience a good one. Rule number one...Never buy pyle or any Boss product that wasnt zed built. Also look into opening those holes up for 5 1/4 speakers because 4" just cannot give much of the lower to mid frequencies.



    The Ride: 1996 Chevy Tahoe 4-Door
    The Setup: Headunit: Pioneer DEH-P80PRS
    Front Stage: Dynaudio 242's
    Rear Door: Dyn 162 gt's
    Subwoofers: Audiopulse LMS Ultra 15"
    Sub Amp: Soon to be PG Elite.1 (HERE!!)
    High's Amps: Soon to be PG Elite.4 (HERE!!)
