I hope i have found the correct section to post in... If not i am sorry :/
I have decided since i bought my current car that it definitely needs an upgrade on the sound system!. It has the old-school 98 two way speakers, 3 of them are blown lol.
It has a cheap Sony head unit in it but its not bad and i can happily cope with it. Here is the tricky part... I need some help on upgrades .
I haven't installed a sound system before, however i have never had issues with changing car panels/covers or wiring lights up so providing i take my time, do my research i should be alright. This car is not overly valuable, but it would be nice to have a somewhat normal sound system in it .
I have done some shopping and here is what i have bought so far:
1. 4X 500W MaxTurbo 6.5" speakers:
PICTURE OF SPEAKERS
- RMS Power (per speaker): 60W
- MAX POWER: 500W
- 4 OHM IMPEDANCE
- FREQ.RESP.: 22-60KHZ (high range)
2. 1X 2200W MaxTurbo Sub Woofer:

- RMS Power (per speaker): 300W
- MAX POWER: 2200W
- FREQ.RESP.: 35-300HZ
- IMPEDANCE: 4 OHM
- SPL: 93dB/W/M
I'm not too sure how to go by the whole Amplifier situation... I think you base the Amp on each individual speakers Wattage? so therefore 60X4=240W? So i guess that means i can have a 2 channel 250w amp(max 500w?) and hook up front speakers on one channel and rear speakers on the other channel? Instead of paying more for a 4 channel.
I also thought the Sub would be cheapest/best to have another separate Amplifier? I looked into mono boxes/amplifiers but **** their expensive for a cheap sound system! So for some reason on the world of Ebay i noticed that 2channel amps are cheaper than the mono... Anyways each Sub has 300W so if i get a 600w 2channel Amp and then pull apart the sub box and separate the 2 subs one for each channel on the amp?
Yeah... need advice on the amps guys and if you could also link me to some cheap ones on ebay you would recommend for the above?
And here is the list i came up with of parts i would need, please tell me if i need to add anything:
- Fuse and fuse holder(noticed CD Player doesn't currently have one)
- Power Cable
- Power Block - Needed?
- Ground Block - Needed?
- Capacitor - Needed?
- Amplifier x2 or 1 unknown
- Speakers x4
- Sub Woofer x1
- Patch Cables
Is their anything i am missing? Could anyone recommend a diagram of how the installation should look?
Thank you to anyone who can give me some input.
