    MORE SUBS! PUT LIKE 4 15's IN THAT ****** OR DON'T BOTHER!!!

    Seriously though, if your happy with it then our opinions mean nothing. I go by the belief that name brand is meaningless and that price and performance are the only things that matter.

    Aw hell, that doesn't really help worth a crap..
    How bout this-
    Ask your self what you need your stuff to do, like-

    1-You probably want a head unit with 4volt front/rear/sub output, internal eq and crossovers and the ability to play MP3 and WMA.

    2-A component set up front with strong midbass and good tonal balance.

    3-Basic speakers in the back that add nice rear fill.

    4-An efficient and powerful sub amp with 800 to 1200watts rms and a reliable 4channel that puts out about 50 watts rms x4

    5-A nice sub that plays any type of music with volume and clarity.

    Budget-
    1- 200 bucks for the deck
    2- 150 bucks for the component set
    3- 50 bucks for rear fill
    4- 300 bucks for the sub amp and 150 bucks for the 4channel
    5- 300 bucks for the sub (generous figure)

    If those choosen peices will perform these tasks within these set budget limits then you should be very happy with it.

    BTW- you could probably use a 2channel to power the front speakers and just use the deck power for the rears as they won't be required to play very loud, just fade the deck towards the front to cut the volume to the rear(won't effect sub output).

    That's an awesome head unit and sub, but you seem to be scrimping on everything else. I've heard some good things about the Fanatic comps.. but I've also seen people sell them alot more than buy them. You can do better.

    I wouldn't even worry about rear fill in your vehicle.. after all, when do you sit in the back seat to listen to your music?

    Both of your amps can be improved upon by 100%. Lightning Audio makes lower end products (budget) and Sony amps basically **** balls.




    Don't PM me, I'm not here. Find me on SSA or ROE
    No, I won't re-upload the Big3 pictures. Don't ask.

    Whats your budget for amps? I agree with Johnecon, neither of those amps are too great, and chances are you can get something a lot better for the same or a little more money.
