    Icon32 New system - advice please? :)

    Hey guys!

    So I'm planning my stereo upgrade in my Toyota Caldina GT-T.
    My specs are currently as follows:

    Headunit: Sony CDX-GT700UI
    Front: Alpine SPR-17S
    Rear: possibly Soundstream SF-652T
    Subwoofer: Pioneer TS-W309D4
    Amplifiers: Pioneer GM-D7400M for the sub (at 2ohms to the DVCs) & possibly JBL GTO1004

    I was thinking of getting the 4 channel and running the cheap 6.5s (~60w RMS) in the rear with the gain turned right down just to cut above the subwoofer. Or is it wiser just to stick with a 2 channel on the Alpines and run rear speakers off the HU?

    Also, if you can recommend any parts instead of what I have listed feel free to do so, but I am trying to keep it to a relative budget :P

    THANKS IN ADVANCE GUYS!

    I would try your setup without a 4 channel first and see how you like it, if you want more power then yea I would go buy a 4 channel.

    I've always seen the head unit as a pre-amp, but I would see if it's loud enough for you. Since the second option allows you to see if you like it without dropping any cash.

    Just my 2 though.
