Re: Is this a good setup
I'm gonna go ahead and say thats not worth the money. First max ratings in general are meaningless. That amp is only 500 watts at 2 ohms, assuming its not overrated like many sony amps have been in the past. There are many other budget options that are better choices. For the subs, you never told us what they were, but once again, sony's car audio really isn't impressive anymore. There are much better choices in 12" subs for most likely less money. The cd player isn't bad at all, and you probably won't have any problems with it, so as long as you like the interface. My past experience with recent sony HU's is that they skip relativley easy, but that was only in two models I've used. Dont buy a cap either, most of the time they dont' help anyway, and especially with the low power you are running it won't do anything except maybe hurt it.
Give us a budget and we'll give you plenty of suggestions.
