    Here goes nothing

    Alright, all this time worrying about subs and i have been neglecting my mids and highs. The cars pretty loud now, 4 speakers all running of the HU. Two xplods in the back and these are the ones that i plan on replacing. I just bought some pioneer 4x6's for upfront and they sound amazing for the price. I don't plan on getting rid of those until they blow.

    Now with the rear speakers on the deck. I currently have an unused MTX RT 202 amp. I was planning on hooking it up to the back speakers only. Or could i hook it up to all four?

    Also, i got to thinking. My subs are in the trunk and the back speakers are on the deck and go into the trunk. I'm pretty sure the subs end up making my cones move and might cause distortion. Anyone else have this problem? Fixes? You guys are the experts.

    Thanks

    Why amp the back speakers instead of the front?

    take out the rear speakers seal them off with dynamat re-install and if the amp is 2ohm stable per channel then yes you can hook 2 speakers to each channel (4ohms per speaker)but the speakers need to be around the same rms range hope that helps

    Re: Here goes nothing

    Well i just read around and it seems that most people spend most of the time/money on the front stage. Now i'm thinking about door speakers. Pods in an 89 buick century? We will see...

    Dammit, this **** is confusing. I'm not even sure how to wire it up so i can close the door?

    You might be a victim to V.B.A., or Violent Bass air. This is when the sound waves from the subwoofer vibrates the cone, causing distortion.
    IT'S ITENSE!


    On a real note... NO! Your subs aren't causing distortion. Your subs ARE the distortion. Xplods have really poor sound quality (which is why, for most people on this forum, they're a joke. Which is ironic since Sony's Home Audio stuff is good, but their car audio stuff is a joke.) Further more, the frequency that the subs would emit said pressure at would be at the same frequency as the song, so if anything, they're causing your rear deck to act as a sort of 6th order Band Pass passive radiator... which would actually look really cool and be really intricate.



    Now designing / building boxes.

    Yep, i didn't buy them. Thats why i'm trying to replace them... I might as well just leave them in there and get a set of comps for the door and fad that **** to the front. Oh and there is no current speakers on the door now so...
