Re: 50 watts enough?
1. I never get that. Why do people think that their head units put out so much power? Look at a 50 x 4 amp. Look how freakin big it is compared to your head unit. Speaking of size of head unit does the amplifier take up most of the room inside? Actually it uses a little chip. Yes, a chip. I remember when Pioneer came out with the Mosfet 45 chip and making a huge deal about how much bigger it was compared to a conventional chip. There is no way in hell that you are going to get 50x4 clean watts out of any head unit. I would go for a component amplifier on my fronts in every install I do.

It's been years since I have been really active in car audio forums. I posted a ton about 10 years ago here on caraudio.com, termpro.com, sounddomain.com, caraudioforum.com, and a whole bunch more that I no longer remember. You may remember me. If not, you're probably just young haha. Because of the many years since I've done any selling / buying, the only person I can remember for my references is Team PSI (David Moore).
