The following system is in a scion Tc.

Alpine 9887 Headunit(just got it a week ago)
Clarion 7 band external eq(Can't remember the model# and I had this before the Headunit Upgrade)
Boston Pro60se's up front ran on the passives
1 12" memphis Mojo
All powered by a memphis big belle (16-MCH1300d)

Now the dilema...I had bought my girlfriend a 1996 maxima that had a small system and never thought anything of it because she didn't ever really listen to the radio. Well before we traded in the Car I was going to pull the Amps and sub, when I found out that she had focal Utopia 180w's yes the ones with the 7" mid. One of the crossovers was bad so I don't have the passives.

So the question is should I keep the pro's and run them or should I put the focal's in and run them activley since I currently have two unused amp channels??? I just got the Pro's less than 2 months ago so I would just give them to my girl Or sell them.

Thanks.

what kind of person drives a '96 maxima and leaves that sort of system behind when selling it? in a recession no less.

It was his second car and when I bought it he made no mention of the speakers. I bought the maxima for her to save gas because she also has an expediton. When I sold it, it had no speakers or audio system what so ever but the car was in great shape and I made 800 on it.

or do you think I should keep the pro's passive in the front and build some pods for the 7w2's and just use them for midbass?

yes,

Do you think the Memphis belle running the utopia's active will be enough power?
