    looking for some noob advice

    Hello everyone.

    so, like the title says, im looking for a little advice.

    i have a 03' Hummer H2 with the Bose system
    i replaced the HU with a Pioneer AVH - P4000DVD that is connected to the BOSE amp and stock BOSE speakers that are failing.
    Pioneer AVH-P4000DVD DVD receiver at Crutchfield.com

    6.5 componete speakers in the front
    6.5 - 2 ways in back doors
    there is also a 5 or 6 inch "sub" hidden somewhere in my dash.. anyways...

    i would like to remove all traces of the BOSE system.
    replace the front stage area with decent speakers (Component)
    i would like back fill speakers for the rear seat area.

    Budget is $500 for atleast front speakers, and a Amp.
    what can you guys recommend?
    i listen mostly to Rock music, but with some techno, and rap thrown in there.
    if the song has bass in it, i want to know its there!

    Re: looking for some noob advice

    i thought about using the Amp for some 6.5s, but at 200 RMS, wouldnt that be overkill for most good quality 6.5s out there?

    most i have seen are 50 to 75 RMS, that max out at 100 to 200w.
    wouldnt this amp be too strong for even those pyle 6.5s? 200rms/400w?
    just by word of mouth really, but arent they named "pile" for a reason?

    if anything, i was thinking of using the amp for the 12" sub..

    but then again, im not even remotely a expert on car audio. i just barely know enough to confuse myself.

    thanks, for the info and help btw

    no, just turn the amp down, head room is always good. that way youre not working the amp and youre not distorting the signal using all the power you need.

    Re: looking for some noob advice

    what if i do not use the Pyle speakers, and decide on using something along the lines of these:

    Focal
    Focal 165A1 6 1/2" Component Speaker System NIB NR : eBay Motors (item 230465017007 end time Apr-28-10 07:44:31 PDT)

    orthese JBL
    JBL

    i understand turning the gain down on the amp, but wouldnt it still be overkill for these speakers since they are only 50 to 70 RMS?
    for what i always understood was that RMS = continous power at all times. you could turn the gain down to 0, and it will still put out the RMS rating per channel?

    im not looking for a competition setup, but not looking for ghetto either. so if i need to buy a new amp, thats fine.. just looking for recommendations.
    but if this amp will work, hey it saves money for other goodies. im not ignoring any advice, i just dont know, so sorry about the questions.

    thanks again!
