    This Setup..Your Thoughts.

    This will be going in a 2000 Kia Sephia which is a small car, also i'd like to know if a capacitor is need and if so how big should it be...the more Farad's the better? basically what i'm asking is would i need like 1-5 Farads or more like 30- 50 Farads, i really don't know anything about electronics.

    A pair of these: http://www.onlinecarstereo.com/CarAu...roductID=19562

    And This Amp: http://www.onlinecarstereo.com/CarAu...roductID=19580

    Any suggestions/changes you would make here would be very appreciated.

    Don't use a capacitor. Instead, get a good battery, do the Big 3 in 1/0, and make sure your alt is in good condition. In a lot of systems, a cap is just a band-aid for a weak electrical system.

    Agreed. Battery and alt are far more important issues to worry about.

    Well....I think
    (A) You can get better equipment for the same price....
    (B)I guess your planing on running your comp's off your H.U since there is no 2/4ch amp....
    (C)Being that your a noob....I hope a professional will be installing....
    (D)Capacitors are pretty much a waste of space and beefing up alt/battery is a much better investment as well as the big 3....Check the sticky's....
    (E)....GOOD LUCK...

    Re: This Setup..Your Thoughts.

    Not sure about the subwoofers, they look nice and PG is a decent brand, but Ive had no experience with their subs.

    The amplifier is fine and should output more than enough power needed for those subwoofers.

    The component set is good but you may want to deaden the doors to get any real midbass thud from them, as well wire them to a seperate 2/4c channel amplifier.

    Capacitors are crap, if you're going to upgrade your electrical, Do Big 3, a capacitor and even a drycell battery isn't of much need in your setup. But to be on the safe side, you can still do the Big 3. If that doesn't seem like an accomplishment enough for you, than go ahead and get a drycell battery.

    But an HO alternator on your setup is completely unnecessary.
