View Full Version : amp approval and speaker location?

ok 2 questions,

but first my background. I've installed 4-5 systems in the 90's but all were typical build a good box, install coaxial's in stock locations and amp it all behind a good headunit.

so now....

I"m looking at installing a 3 way setup in the door of my silverado like this. http://www.fiberglassforums.com/showthread.php?t=59

I've been looking at the focal 3 way setups ( Focal Polyglass 165V2 ) but I'm open to suggestions as well.

I've also been tossing around the idea of putting another set in the kicks. simple component set

would this be beneficial at all? or would the 2 sets just compete with each other?

question #2

how are infinity amps? been looking at the 4 channel to run the above....

to try and answer future questions, I would assume I'd have to go to an active setup for all this. but that's something new to me so I'd definetly have to get some educaten on that one.

From my experience, infinity apms are good. There are better out there, but I have never had any problems with them.

do you have a limited budget? if not then get a better quality amp for the focal's if not then go for it. as for 2 set's of mids id stick with the 1 set and amp them correctly. cant go wrong with the polyglass mid's imo. i really like them

budget isn't too big a concern, I'm thinking 1500 after the headunit (avic-z1)
I've been reading the last couple days on different forums trying to decide what to go with. Things have changed so much in the last couple years, and I'm looking a lot higher quality stuff than I was in the 90's
