    Newbie here looking for suggestions on what I have (and don't)....

    Hey guys...Steve from NY here. First post, so here goes....
    I am recycling some of my old system from my 2000 Camaro SS.
    I am into rock, metal, jazz, funk, etc....Not going to be playing rap and that type of music..I am looking for sound quality vs SPL. I prefer my subs at 80, not 50 etc...tight and percussive.
    This is what I am working with: Being installed in a 2004 Chevy Astro Van
    Pioneer DEH-P8400BH head unit
    PPI PCX 480 for door and rear speakers
    PPI PCX 2200 for the subs
    2x10 Q Logic sealed cabinet with OLD SCHOOL round Solo Barics

    I did the big 3 the other day, and I am kind of set of getting two sets of Alpine SPR-60C 6.5 component speakers for the front and rear doors. They seam to be the best bang for the buck since I can get them new for under 280 for both pairs.
    So, I am looking for suggestions on if I will need a cap, if 4 guage power cable is good, and any specific brand of RCA's I should get. I don't do Monster due to being crap products with lifetime warranties...LOL
    I didn't need a cap in my Camaro with the same setup with different front and rear speakers(JL and Mmats).
    Should I get any type of new enclosure for the front and rear doors??? Or just mat them...
    The system was crystal clear in my Camaro, but this is a completely different environment they are going into. The van is a passenger van, not a bare cargo van.
    What say you, stereo gurus????
    Looking forward to your responses....
    Steve

    Wow...Glad I joined such a helpful forum....LOL
    Luckily, there are places that actually help. This must be a beginners site....
    Maybe since I don't listen to rap at high SPL with no sound quality, I didn't get any help....
    Later kids....
