    Icon14 Do I have enough power? Help!

    Hey guys, first post! I have a question about the current setup I'm getting ready to install:
    So far I have:
    -(2) 12" MTX Terminators in a closed box, 400 watts RMS each
    -(1) MTX Terminator TNA251 amp at 250 Watts RMS
    -(2) 6.5" 3-way Kenwood KFC-1664S at 35 Watts RMS
    -(2) 6" x 9" 4-way Kenwood KFC-6984PS at 110 Watts RMS
    -(1) Kenwood KDC-248U Head Unit
    I'm going to use the amp to power the subwoofers, but it looks like the amp's a bit underpowered. I only question if the head unit can provide enough power to the door speakers...do I need to buy another amp for the four interior speakers? Should I buy an entirely different amp? Thanks for your help!

    For your 4 interior speakers.. It will help a ton! You don't want to hear more bass than music! Go with a good 4 channel!

    probably yes. Also that sub amp isn't even good enough for one of those subs, let alone two. don't be surprised if output isn't what you expect.

    I'd get a cheap 2 channel for the front, run the rear off the headunit. Saves you money and imo sounds better


    edit: but then again I'd get an entirely new setup if you could sell it on cl and run some good components up front, with a decent 10 or 12" sub and amp. Just food for thought

    What's wrong with my components? Everything I've got is fine, I'm just wondering what I'm going to do for power.

    I meant as in component speakers... by the sounds of it you have coax? If not, then my bad. Components just generally sound better. But, if you have all the equip, just see what it sounds like and if you are lacking in certain areas, go from there.
