i have a 2003 s10 extended cab. Im getting together a system for it. I have a pioneer headunit. I replaced the dashboard speakers(4x6) with a set of 3way pioneers. The speakers on the doors(6 1/2) are kenwood. The speakers sound pretty good now. But I have a bad feeling that when i install my sub n amp in the truck it will drown out the mids and highs. The sub i have is a 12'' kicker solx in a ported enclosure. Im just waiting on the amp. What are my options to fix this. I want to stay away from getting a external amp to power them. please help

you need an external amp -- possibly some nicer speakers too -- a soloX wants like 5000 watts... may be a little less for the 12 -- I've always seen it pointless to get a soloX unless you get the 18 :P and give it its full RMS power...

s12x is 2500rms. s18x is 5000rms. but something tells me he meant a solobaric

GET THE 18! :) lol anything else is useless I mean -- not so much of a bang for the buck... :) who cares if it wants like 40cuft to sound good -- it will work in 3 or 6 loudly... by extension I would guess the 12" wants ~ 1cuft or less :P I've never messed with it though... I'm more of a SQ guy :)

its a 12'' solox. I didnt go with the 18'' solox because of space. no way could i be able to fit it back there. the box that i had made for it is about 3 cubic feet. its ported also. im going to be runnin a memphis mojo amp with it. but back to the question. my dashboard speakers can only take 30 watts rms. Their only 4x6 and my hu pushes 27 watts rms per channel soo there maxed out basically. What are my other options to do in this case?

I doubt.... that some coax speakers can keep up with a solo x I also doubt you HU is puttin out 120 watts :D.
