    Remember i listed my current system. it is farly loud in the truck and remember it is a toyo taco x-cab and it dose not have that much area to put sound It is small cab to fill with music. As i said im 45 now and want to keep my hearing into my older years. I have noticed that some times after listening a wile at loud volume my ears are not feeling good. So that is why I want more quality and not just power and loud.
    Well I do understand. I'm 50 myself. And I have a z71 extra truck So my question to you is , is there one or two of these tubes back there ? If 2 of them then each takes 100 rms each. That's good so I need to know impedance of the tube or tubes are they s4 or d4 this will help to determine what amp is needed and yes the gain is for line match the signal from the deck to the amp. And can be adjusted back for less power. But not really up for more power , unless you want a clipped signal

    Re: Hello from an old school car audio girl looking for help.

    Ok Boston Acoustic has a GTA 504 4 ch 50w if i bridge it into 2 the specs show 160rms 2ch will that work The GTA 504 is $99

    or i can get a second GTA 704 and just bridge that into 2 ch and the specs show 250rms into 2 ch will that work?

    oh man this is crazy but I can get a good deal direct from BA if I act fast.

    I have 2 in the truck of the Kicker 6 1/2 substations and each speaker is rated at 100 rms

    Impedance oh I don't know I know they where 4 ohm speakers tubes but what does that small s & d you put in front of your 4

    Ok so 2 sub station 4 ohm each. So you need a mono block amp that does 300 rms at 2 ohms or more That would be ideal. That way you can put 100 rms to each without clipping or pushing the amp hard also I looked up your truck for speaker size. They are. 6x8 all Round. But with adapters you can do 5 1/4 all around 6.5 can be done but you'll need to cut the sheet metal in the doors I would do just the front doors components and 2 ways/ coaxes in the rear turn the rears down on the amp so that they don't drown the fronts out. Now if you come to the lake perris show I can bring some equipment for you to look at if you like. But that's up to you. Also you might consider changing the power and ground wires if they are as old as you say along with the rcas

    No I do not have 6x8 all around. I have the truck that had the tweeter and mid openings in the door panel. That was stock. it must of been a upgrade stock sound system . I do have the I believe is the 6x8 in rear x-cab area side panels. What I have currently is the components from Blauplunk 2 way with crossover in front door in stock location and the coaxal 6x8 i believe is correct in rear locations. I don't remember but I believe they are 6 1/2 size components in front door now

    And why mono and not stereo on the subs

    If you hold a few seconds I will go outside and pull one door panel off quick and measure that speaker and get to bottom of this.

    Re: Hello from an old school car audio girl looking for help.

    ok I just checked and as I thought. They are 6 1/2 component speakers in factory spot. There the 6 1/2 at bottom of door and the tweeter opening at top of panel . Both spots are factor openings.

    Re: Hello from an old school car audio girl looking for help.

    Ok cool. The reason for thd mono block amp is that it's a sub amp. Not for speakers also a class ab amp used for subs can be harder on your trucks electrical

    Ok i hear you. I just looked on Bostons web site and they don't have anything affordable in that mono amp. They have like 3 sections main, then under shop tab buy direct they have outlet, and then refurb section. check it out see link. I found the GTA 704 under refurb section. What about my idea of buying 2 704 and bridge one for the amps is stereo mode 250 x 2 I see there good amps and for that price I just can't beat it. They also have the GTA 502 and if bridged mono it say 260 x1

    I need to power the subs with a 2 ohm load. But will the GTA 704 still be ok to use to my other speakers. I just don't want to pass up this deal if the GTA 704 would be a good choice. if it is a good choice then I will order it today. And then maybe worry about the sub amp this week

    Ok if you have a second can you use that link I gave you to Boston and look at the outlet or refurb or main to see if there is a decent priced amp I cam use I will then purchase both But i want to know if the GTA 704 can I get that not to pass up deal. I already have it in my shopping cart on webs site i just need to check out. Or maybe there is a Boston amp at good price on E-bay I can purchase that would do what you say Please help
