I've stumbled across this place many times and finally decided it was time to create an account. So here's what's going on. Currently I'm building/rebuilding a new-to-me commuter car (1995 Saturn SC2). I'd like this car to have a decent sound system, nothing insane, just decent.
Right now I have two Craigslist acquired Kenwood 10" subs - probably only one will be used in the car. They are 300 watts RMS/1000 peak with a 4 ohm coil. Underpowering it is not a big issue; I understand gain (somewhat) and how to set it without blowing the speaker. Also, I plan to throw in something better than stock in the rear deck (2x 6 1/2s). The current aftermarket headunit can provide around 20 watts RMS per channel IIRC. Keeping in mind that I'm not going for extravagant - just a bit louder and better than stock - I have three questions:
#1 What are some decent tweeters/mids for the rear deck (preferably under $40 total, used or new)?
#2 Should I be getting a mono amp just for the subwoofer, or a 4 channel for the sub + rears, or a mono for the subwoofer + a 2 channel for the rears?
#3 What kind of amp(s) would you recommend (preferably not more than $80 total, used or new)?
Huge thanks in advance!
