    what should i buy?

    Ok i bought all this stuff to make my high/mids as loud as my bass (2 12's on 1500 rms). I installed everything perfectly and got the approval from people on this site. But idk what it is it just sounds like ****. Not loud at all and horrendous sound quality. At loud volumes its super scratchy and washed out sounding. IMO sounded better with stock speakers running off the HU and peoples stock audio systems are louder lol. I just dont understand. Yes i have set gains correctly and i have played around with all the HU settings. Any ways I want a setup with more power. So i need recomendations. Im more concerned with volume then sound quality but i want decent sound quality. Do i need a new amp? New door speakers? Price range is 300$. My current setup is below.

    Also dont try to use all my 300$ haha. For example if all i need is a more powerful amp that pushes out more watts then just say that rather then suggesting new speakers too just because i have money left over. Im basicly trying to do this as cheaply as possible.

    Re: what should i buy?

    If it is indeed my speakers heres what im thinking: buying a nice set of speakers for the front then bridging the clarion amp to those speakers and just having no speakers in the back.

    So then im looking for speakers that take the same rms the amp puts out? Because i have heard so many things like you have the amp has to be double the rms of the speaker and stuff lol. But getting new speakers would make it louder and improve sound quality? Or just improve sound quality?

    Alrite to be honest this whole speaker thing is confusing me. Im looking on sonic electronics and none of the 6x8's on there take more than 100 rms. I mean if i bought speakers that take 100 rms and matched them with a 100 rms amp would that extra 30 rms even be that much louder?
