My head unit seems to have (according to the manual) a set of output cables for the front, and a set of output plugs for the rear/sub outputs.
1) If the OEM speakers plugs to the rear are disconnected does that route full headunit output power to the fronts?
2) If I do #1, and just use the output plugs to an amp to power the rears and a sub, how many channels does the amp need to be, and assuming the headunit amp powering the fronts is putting out about 25 watts per side, what should the rear amp power be so that everything blends well sound wise?
3) If I do 1 and 2, should the new front and/or rear speakers be "2-ways" or "3-ways"and what would sound best? Im thinking if all of the above is correct that maybe 2-ways in the rear and 3 ways in the front?
4) If I do all of the above, and my thinking is correct so far, would I really need or want tweeter up front. or will the 3 ways give me more then enough highs?
Truck is a 2003 full crew cab F-250. The rear speakers are literaly behind the rear seat in the side panels, and get muffled pretty good by the back seat. So maybe I should even consider 3-ways both front and rear?
Still having a family to raise, I dont have alot of fun money for this project, so I am triing to get the very best sound for the very least amount of money spent. This is why I ask all these questions, so that when the time comes, I can have a good understanding as to what I need to do for an awsome sound and stay inexpensive to boot.
Maybe I should do it this way......
Head unit is a Kenwood KDC-MPV5025, and everything else is bone stock...
