    Icon32 What to do w/ my system??

    i just got a new head unit (Kenwood kdc-x859) and it has 3 pair of preouts (4.5 volts). I have a Kenwood amp that is a year or two old (don't know the exact wattage) that i was planning on hooking up to my two speakers in my trunk (they are Truck speakers: 8" sub, a mid, and a hi). Should i forget about the amp and just hook them up to the head unit? If so, how would i go about doing that? If not, will the amp make that much of a difference? If anyone has any other suggestions on what to do w/ my system, please let me know.
    My Entire system is:
    Kenwood kdc-x859 HU
    (2) Kenwood kfc-1368s 2-way door speakers
    (2) Kenwood kfc-t204 flush mount tweeters in upper door panel
    (2) Kenwood kfc-s136 speakers in rear deck
    (2) Truck box speakers w/ 8" sub, a mid, and high in each
    (1) Kenwood amp (don't know model)

    by being so brand loyal, youre paying a lot more for what youre getting. if youre being sponsored by kenwood, thats 1 thing, but if youre just doing it b/c you like one component of that stereo, then youre screwing yourself over.

    I didn't really intend on being so brand loyal, it just kinda worked out that way. The car came w/ one set of kenwood speakers in it, i got the tweeters and other speaker set for pretty cheap. The amp was given to me for free. The HU really just had all the features that i wanted. So, i really don't think i'm getting burned much at all, unless the HU really ***** b/c that's the only thing i've really spent money on.

    don't worry

    You have a great head unit and yes, use the amp to power those speakers.
    nismo's right in saying there is no real advantage to running the same brand, but it's not that big of a deal.
    Since you have Kenwood, you really should get Sirius radio..........it's pretty cool.

    I was going to say Not too shabby, but then I saw your sub setup. You can do better than 8" subs. Other than that, it sounds pretty nice.
