    New System Build..to use old school or new school?

    Hey all,
    I used to be an avid Rockford fan, been out of the game a while and am starting a new build for my daily driver silverado ext cab. I own tons of old school rockford stuff, I have a500m, 250m2, 250.1, 250.2, 1100a2, 400.4, and an old power 650.
    I am planning on running either 2 IDQ 12s under the the rear seat in .92 sealed, or 4 ID 10s with same air space. Any opinions? I am still open for the front stage. I am thinking of just replacing the stocks stuff with components, or doing a 6 and a 4 in the door and a tweet in the stock location.. I am either going to use the old 1100a2 for the subs and the 400.4 bridged stereo for the front stage. OR... I have an opportunity to grab a 25 to life Limited Edition RF power 1000. I am also considerting the T15004 to run the whole system.
    This is my daily driver and would like to keep it simple... I am more into SQ than SPL.. I have an SPL toy build with old school rockford. Any opions would be great... I have been out of the game for about 10 years.... so the question is old school vs new school!

    Thanks in advance!

    Re: New System Build..to use old school or new school?

    Yea i would like the ease of having the new technology, one amp for the whole system.. the bass knob... Oth the other hand I do think that the 1100a2 and 400.4 will really pound... tough call... does anyone have o use any of the above mentioned rockford new amps? specifically the limited edition power 1000?

    You are a heathen if you don't use the Power 650. You can go with modern processors to give you the bass knob, etc... but it's really all about the amp.
