do i have to buy a seperate amp for my components? anyone have a tutorial on installing components?

you dont have to but it would be pointless to have components without an amplifier...

most of the time there is a little bit of custom fabrication used when installing components, the level of fabrication depends on how far you want to take it

so like....could i use my memphpis mono block to power the components....
ohyea wat kind of components do you recommend around 140?

dont use your mono block for components, use a 2 ch, or a 4 ch.

okay...now wat kind of components for 140?...infinity is cheap enough...i can find some alpines for around that..what else..?

what about my rear speakers? do i just keep them stock?

for 140, look into DLS, they always have quality stuff (or so im told).

welll... do you have your components crossed over on the hu? its probably because you are causing the components to play too low.

wait yea or you are givin the components a clipped signal.
