    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?

    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).

    Speakers: PHD FB mid, JBL MS tweets
    Amps: Boston Acoustics GT-2125, Zed Minotaur III (x2)
    Sub: 10" SSA ICON, IA Death Penalty 18" (coming soon)

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