Re: Should I use an Amp? <----Noob
im sure the sound quality from an alpine amp would be better then from an aiwa hu.
you might not think so but theeres quite a difference between 23 watts rms and 50, you might not be able to tell a difference with your stock fronts, but it should liven up your rears some.
being that your speakers are pretty low grade i dunno how much it would help, but by a mid grade set of speakers, 50-75 bucks a pair and put that amp on them and youll hear a drastic difference over what you have now.
hu: panasonic mxe cq-c8401u
fronts: soundstream px6.5's
rears: removed, thinking about replacing
amp: none, fronts running off hu
sub: 1 soundstream tarantula t4-10
sub amp: brutus 1500d
2.15 cubic feet ported, tuned to 35 hz
