finished my install: who knew it could sound this good?

after work, i drove to my parents' house to finish my 4ch amp/speaker upgrade. after fighting with the driver side door for an hour, we finally had the last speaker wired up with some nice, new 16ga. anyone who owns a Civic with power windows/locks: using the factory boots/grommets to run the wiring for your door speakers will drive you to madness, but it can be done! this was easily the most pain-stakingly slow portion of my entire install.

i'm now sending my full range speakers 60w each, and it sounds simply amazing. once the buggers started getting full power from my Profile CA440 (thanks again, nosaj070!), the clarity and depth of the music just leapt out at me! no amount of convincing and advice on this forum could really ready me for how much BETTER (and LOUDER!!) my system could be.

to anyone who is considering a nice amp for their front/rear stage: don't hesitate. get out there and do it. once you do, you'll wonder how you ever got by on just the HU.

now i'm left to wonder: if my system can sound this good with just some Sony Implod 3-ways, i wonder how some nice comps and kick panels could do?! thanks to everyone on here who has helped me and answered my questions!

Those subs are 400w RMS each, and that dual enclosure is 800w RMS with a 2ohm load. That's a 4ch amp that does 55w x 4 @ 4ohm, & 75w x 4 @ 2ohm. Even bridged that amp is 150w x 2 @ 4ohm. That...

Thank you for your kind replies. I have decided to use an amplifier I purchased for another install, but subsequently never used. I was concerned it might be overkill but maybe it was just the...

As for which signal to use, I tried all combinations and getting signal from the dash and front & rear doors is the only way the system sounded good (wish I had a O scope or a stereo shop near me...

Another option is to get the 4 channel amplifier and purchase 2 surface mount speakers for the rear deck and 2 for the front kick panels. Running speaker wires to those speakers would be...
