    How does this setup look?

    Head Unit: JVC KW-AVX810
    Component: Morel Tempo 6
    Comp Amp: Arc KS 300.4
    Rear Fill: Morel Tempo 69c
    Sub Stage: 2 RE SE 10" D4
    Sub Amp: US Amps XT 2000D

    I'd be feeding the Comps 250-300 watts, leave the rear fill head unit amplified, and give the subs 600 watts a piece. I'm leaning towards a SQ based set up with decently load bass. I'll put the subs in a custom sealed enclosure.

    What do you think?

    Not bad. I would still amp the rear fill but looks good.

    Re: How does this setup look?

    Does amping the rear fill really help anything? My car is a coupe and almost no one sits in the back, so I was debating for a long time whether or not to get rear fill. I decided to because it gives me the compelete feeling.

    What is your stance on the rear fill?

    Re: How does this setup look?

    So you think I should get a different amp? What do you think? I picked it because I can get a pretty good deal on it and would save money later to upgrade.

    Re: How does this setup look?

    why dont you get rid of the rear fill and use it to buy a matching arc amp.

    and unless you are a bass head im sure 1 SE will suffice.

    and that jvc headunit is basically a dvd player with a 7 band Parametric eq in it for $800. imo its a waste of money.
    at least thats what this tells me

    if there was some semblance of a crossover network maybe id consider it.

    Re: How does this setup look?

    I'm so glad I haven't pulled the trigger on this deal yet.

    I'm sold on the comps/comp amp. They seem like a perfect fit to me and the dealer I'm getting it from just raves about them.

    I won't get the sub stage for a while, but I like knowing I have rear fill. It's just something that is a must for me.

    I like bass, but in moderation. 1200 watts isn't really that much to me, but I have been considering one SE for a while. It would also be cheaper.

    What kind of amp would you recommend for one SE?

    And what DD deck should I get instead? I don't want to spend much more than what this one is listed at.

    Re: How does this setup look?

    That's a nice amp and doesn't cost much more than the US Amp. I'll definately have that amp on high priority.

    So, ditch the rear fill? I was thinking about keeping the stock speakers in and setting the balance so that it is mostly my components. Then I'd use the money I was going to spend on the rear fill to get the Eclipse AVN 6620. Does that sound logical?

    Re: How does this setup look?

    OK, so this is what my set up will look like when all is said and done:

    Head Unit: Eclipse AVN 6620
    Comps: Morel Tempo 6
    Comp Amp: Arc KS 300.4
    Rear Fill: Stock factory speakers (balance set favoring the comps)
    Sub Stage: 2 RE SE 10" D4
    Sub Amp: AQ 1200D


    Does that look **** or what?

    Looks good. You need Horns. lol.
    You mentioned that you just like to "know" you have the rear's.
    So leave them and unplug them!
    I personally would go with ID subs. If that amp puts out 1200ish watts. You could get 2 IDQ10v3's for it. I've yet to hear the SE's but I love the IDQ's. And they are very efficient in small enclosures.
    .5-1 cube a piece!
