    Best way to hook and amp up is?!......

    Hey I have a Lexus ES300 and i recently replaced the front 6.5's and rear 6x9's with some Infinity Reference's (i know they're not the best but they were cheap). Anyways the sound like $hit b/c they're being run off my factory H/U so I bought a Pioneer GM-X544 amp (again not the best but hey it works.....and was cheap). I was curious what the best way to set it up, and wire it up would be if I want some more power going to the new speakers. Also should I think about hooking the amp up to the 4.25's in the dash, and tweeters in front doors that i have also? If you can help me in any way I'd appreciate it. Just e-mail me at [email protected]) Thanks, James

    *If anybody has a 10'" sub (JL, CV, etc.) they want to get rid of cheap please let me know 'cause I'mm trying to find one.

    it's like an older model befoer they put in the Nakamichi's. It has Pioneer's in it that weren't that great. The Infinity's are actually pretty underrated and they do good for what I like to listen to which is mostly Acoustical stuff and some other things.

    alright thanks for your input. I mean't Mark Levinson in the Lexus's not Harmon Kardon...Even though there are some nice Harmon Kardon systems in the BMW's.
