    Is a Kenwood

    MPV-5025 good enough for a simple system?

    I bought it about 8 months ago and it is stillin PERFECCT shape.

    Looking to add 2 sets of 6.5's componets a sub and an amp or 2 to run a basic syatem in my 99' cherokee.

    I see that most systems recommend a 4 - 5 volt pre-amp output and my MPV only has a 2 volt output.

    Is it that BIG of a deal for a simple system. Im not competing and Im not a discerning listener.

    I listes to ALL types of music.

    Thanks

    not sure what you are saying but a 2 volt output from your headunit is fine. preout voltage is overrated.

    It will do fine. I do recommend that you amp your components though.

    Thanks guys.

    If I stay ith this unit I can definately add some better amps than I originally planeed.

    Looks like Ill keep her for now.

    I was told NOT to get anything with less than 4 volt pre-out. I dont knwo why either.

    If its not that big of a deal than Id rather save the $$ and put it into a sub or better amp.

    Thanks

    Higher voltage can have advantages, but they're not huge like many people profess.
