    - rears stock for now

    Amp?
    sub ?
    Im trying to keep everything hidding and as stock looking as possible not sure on the amp id like to use but id like it to be small. I have been looking at kenwood excelon xr 400-4 and the xr 900-5
    and the ppi 900.4 and the .5 and maybe the jbl ms8 for processing and loc. The sub will go into an audio intergrations sub box prolly gonna be a idq 10 or jl10w3 or boston g5. Going for mainly sq and more enjoyable time driving.

    Re: stock hu need small amp advice

    I recommend a 5-channel amplifier so you can run the components active and the sub off the mono channel. The rear speakers can be powered by MS-8. You'll have the potential for some really suprisingly good sound out of a system like this, especially because of what MS-8 is capable of. Use the money saved by not buying a second amplifier to go toward acoustic treatments. I have experimented with a number of methods and products and I strongly recommend at least following the principles of various treatments as shown on Welcome to Sound Deadener Showdown | Sound Deadener Showdown
