My Kenwood DNX-9140 Nav HU has front and rear , left and right preouts? It also has a single center preout.
Is this for surround sound and if so what kind of speaker(s) should I use for this channel?
Also can I get a six channel amp for this setup or use a 4 channel and another two chanel amp for the center?
My Bass is already done.

Ok so am almost understanding this. My question now is as I see it I can add the center channel speaker yes. But I dont really have anywhere I can put it up front. My HU is DD.
I have Components in the front doors.
I have Components in the rear deck.
All powered by a 4 channel amp.
Would it make since to add two center channel mid range speakers in the rear doors
and power them with a small two channel amp Or am I wasting my time here.
Thanks in advance.

the pocket you have in the center would work fine
mercedes has a center channel up on the dash facing the windshield
center channel stays in the center ...
its mostly for speech and midrange sound effects.
oh I seemz to found a solution for yaws problem
the cute lil vents that you have 3 of on top of the indash.
the middle one looks like it was made for that center channel speaker
