    Amp setup help

    2009 hyundai sonata limited:

    I have stock head unit but upgraded front and rear doors with kicker separates although have stock sub still in rear deck. I'm adding a audio control dqxs to add multiple amps:

    1. Thinking of using separate amp for 4 highs and another for 4 mids. Better to setup that way or use one amp for front speakers and one for rear?

    2. Curious which amps would be ideal: 2 autotek 44w mean machines? 2 orion 225 hcca's?

    3. I also have a 1.5f cap but not sure if I should use?

    4. Upgrade stock 8" sub to better one or do a single ten in box in trunk?

    5. Does using a mix or orion and autotek matter?

    Input?

    Ditch the cap, I would put one 2-channel on the front tweets, one on front mids, power the rear speakers from the HU, and get a new sub/enclosure for the trunk rather than recycle the stock (it's being choked for airspace).

    Oh and matching brands is not required. Experiment and use what you like best

    Or you could get one 4 channel for the front mids and highs.
