Me: New to car audio and afraid I may have limited my options with the parts I've already installed.
Goal: To have a decent setup that sounds better than factory w/o breaking the bank or rattling every window within 1/2mi radius.
What I've got
- Car: 2002 Mazda Protege Sedan (6X9s in rear deck, nothing in rear doors)
- HU: Kenwood DPX500BT
- Front: Memphis 15-PR572V2 (2 way coaxial 5X7s 40RMS/80Peak)
- Back: borderline blown factory 6X9s in rear deck that need to be replaced
- No amp or sub yet
Tentative Plan: I'd love to get decent (not amazing) bass out of a good pair of 6X9s in the rear deck powered by an amp instead of doing a sub in the trunk. I'm looking at the Alpine SPR-69 to accomplish this. However, my dilemma is that the front speakers are 40RMS/80Peak while the rear would be 100RMS/300Peak. What amp configuration would power both sets of speakers so the 6X9s produce good bass and the front 5X7s don't get blown or drowned out? I realize in retrospect I probably shouldn't have gone with coaxial in the front and am not sure what to do w/this setup. Advice is much appreciated!
