    Is it worth it for me to get a new HU?

    Currently running a decent alpine one. alpine ute-42bt

    It only have 2 sets of preouts @ 2v each. Currently I'm using y splitters to run my 4 channel off the "front" preouts and my sub amp is going off the "rear/sub" preouts.

    Is it worth upgrading to something that has 3 preouts (front,rear,sub) and is at 4V? Will I even notice a difference? Maybe something like this: http://www.futureshop.ca/en-ca/produ...4a643fd3ffen02

    Currently running:

    Alpine PDX-F4 with 4 coaxial speakers
    Sundown SAZ-2000D
    Sundown X12 sub

    2000 F150 4.6L Extended Cab - Build in Progress

    • Sundown Zv4 Dual 2 Ohm Subwoofer: Ordered from SSA
    • 2.5 Cu Ft @ 32hz: Building this fall

    You may, but it depends. If the HU is by far the "weakest" link in your system, then yes. You have coaxial speakers, so aside from fader control and a few extra features, I don't see it being worth the money for you. Amplifiers can already do full power with your 2V pre-outs anyway. You're good.

    you'll need one if your sub feels like its falling behind your music. With coaxials you probably dont need an SQ head unit. When you get to components then most definitely switch it up to a better head unit.
