    4 tweeters/ 4 mid-sub speakers- amp needed

    Hi everyone, I'am only new to this forum as well as to car audio. I have 2002 opel vectra c, 8 speakers in it- four mid/sub in all doors and four tweeters. Have them replaced with Pioneer TS-Q172C, double damping mats, dynamat extreme and silent coat, and alpine CDE-W233R head unit.

    Now my question is what kind of amplifier i need to improve sound I am not happy with (still). I would prefer staying with ALPINE right from this site:

    caraudiodirect.co.uk/amplifiers (sorry I can't link)

    1. What do I really need?
    2. Do I need Two or Multi channel?
    3. Any cords I need to connect the whole thing?
    4. Would all be easy with my current setup?

    I used to have 1997 town car executive with only 4 stock speakers and I will never forget how it sounds. Is there any secret Lincoln has that I need to know to make my Opel audio sound just as good?

    Thanks for help, good luck.

    no worries about the placement.

    yes, you want a 4 channel amplifier. the bigger the better. to install it you will need an amp install kit that includes power wire, fuse holder, ground wire, RCA's (4 channels), a remote turn-on wire, and enough speaker wire to run from the dash to the amp for all four channels.

    essentially you can use the existing wiring for the speaker, but since it is connected to the head unit you will disconnect from the head unit and extend to the amp location (under a seat, in the boot, wherever).

    there are general rules and guidelines for amplifier installation.
    this is a good reference:
    Amplifier Installation Guidelines



    have you been helped by me? i'd love to know. shoot me a PM.

    Thanks Keep Hope Alive, problem is I don't get too much from link You posted, but no sweat: I'm going to leave it to guys in garage. Any ideas which alpine amp would be enough for a decent sound in regard to stuff I have gotten so far??

    Alpine used Duo-b amps are inexpensive to buy, and have excellent sq,and nice power for mids, and highs
