Will I need an amp to my future components or will the deck be enough? I have the Pioneer DEH-P8600MP

if their good components you will end up needing an amp but you can usually get by as long as you dont turn them up till they pop.

but once you get a nice sub you will want to power them. :)

absoulutely......what componets do you suggest that would be a perfect mactch for this deck or would it be better to go with an seperate amp.....I am looking for user friendness during install...

well are you going to be upgrading your whole system? installing subs and that sort of thing? and if you are installing subs whats your budget on that?

also ease of install really depends on the car.

whats your budget for components??

let us know and we may be able to help :)

Well money is not really an option......it is but not a deciding factor I am looking for a complete set up...I dont want to spend outrageous amounts of money just a more than decent system. 1000-1500 if I were to put a cap on it.

I have a 2004 SRT-4. What ever system I put in has too #1 not severly diminish the performance of the vehicle.

Subs looking for an 60/40 split between SPL and SQ respectivly

I dont have an ear for sound if you know what i mean...I want a componet set that will sound differnt form stock (better that is)

I dont think I can go wrong with the deck I have chosen.

Blows yours away

Im not sure wat you mean by "severly diminish the performance of the vehicle" but the only thing that I know a big system will do is add more stress to your electrical. Thats when the watts start going past 1000 rms. But that can easily be fixes with bigger wire, bigger batt and/or better alternator.

For the subs since you say money isnt an issue.
They have good spl subs like the XXX

Good amps for those subs probably MTX 1501D or something of that wattage
