View Full Version : Need help with changing system, comp or just speakers

Im Looking to upgrade my current sound system
First here is my current setup:
Sub - Kicker CVT12 @ 400W RMS @ 2OHM
Sub Amp - Kicker ZX400.1 @ 400W RMS @ 2OHM

Speakers - KFC-1651S @ 25W OR SOMETHING
Speakers AMP - MTX 4004 SPECS BELOW

Headunit - P3000IB, outputs i think 15W to nothing, maybe tweeters later

These are the specs of my speakers amp:
Power Output: 50 Watts RMS x 4 channels at 4 Ohms ≤ 1% THD+N
Signal-to-Noise Ratio: 80 dBA (reference: 1 W output)
Additional Power Output: 100 Watts RMS x 4 channels at 2 Ohms ≤ 1% THD+N
200 Watts RMS x 2 channels bridged at 4 Ohms ≤ 1% THD+N
THD+N (Distortion): <0.25% (reference: 1 W output)
Frequency Response: 20 Hz to 20 kHz (-3dB)
Maximum Input Signal: 5V
Maximum Sensitivity: 100mV

First, I want to change out the speakers to something that will hit to maximize my amp, right now the doors are

only getting 25w and thats nothing for my amp, so i need some better speakers. I have stock wiring in the speaker

location, and my own wiring from speaker location to amp, i was thinking if i got regular speakers i could use the

wire from amp to speakers, and i would need to get some tweeters and use the stock wiring that wuold come from the

deck to power these..or i could just get a component system and do something with that and leave the stock wiring.
Im not familiar with component systems, but from what i have read i guess its just a speaker and a tweeter,

seperate, instead of being together..but since i have stock wiring and other wiring to amp wouldnt it be better to

have regular speakers(with tweeters in them) and then another pair of tweeters?

These are the speakers ive been looking at so tell me what you all think.
