What's even funnier is that I didn't use anything close to the word ugly in that statement. Tide pods are for laundry, not for snacking.

So wait a minute...

Gramps, you're running your front stage on head unit power?

yep.. it's fine i swear.. i had 75x4 amp in last cars 9yrs, 1 car i had comps in kick panels + door and rear speakers so basically 450 rms on mids/highs now just hu sounds good and i have no alt whine.. also i just have coax speakers very sensitive and with the 24 bit da convertor on hu it maybe better than altima with 300rms as good anyway.. i've seen decent 2 chans for $50 on fb but then i gotta find a place to mount it (won't fit on same seat back) i'd have to get dist blocks for 4 ga which seems like a waste of $, i'd rather but ticker wire and think about 2nd amp next yr (i just don't wanta run rcas to be honest).. if i felt i needed it i would but because i have 2nd tweeter in doors kinda high up they sound fine.. i have rears in foam baffles and it's faded 75% to front anyway.. i'd video and show it to u but ones i post with songs on them get deleted and my phone mic sucks so it's only distorts when bass kicks in.. these are my last 2 set ups in altima (still have the wall) but that just blocked bass i don't wanta do that again dif not to add highs and have less bass

I'd figure away out. Just for a clean signal. What's that hu distort at. 3/4 at best. So you're at what around 1000 watts on sub 18 watts on mids/highs?  All about that bass no treble

If you like it I guess that's all that matters. Reminds me of something I'd tried  in high school though

dude i worked at a stereo shop for 10 yrs i told 200 people the same thing when they came in wanted 2 15's not mid amp.. i'd love to have some 8's in my doors with 100rms each but i just loaned kid $2500, took in his pit bull and canceled my health ins yesterday, and i literally have 3 teeth on top., my mids are fine..

That's cool i get it. 

Just having trouble wrapping my head around using hu power with a 900 + watt sub set up.

You seem like a nice enough guy. Hell If you lived closer I'd let ya use 1 of my amps i have in my closet till ya got back on your feet.

like i said i see 2 chan kenwoods, pioneers and what not all the time $30-100.. almost bought nice one on here few months back don't  remember what it was.. biggest problem is i'd have to pull hu to run rca not to mention speaker wires and i'd have to buy more 4ga blocks when i need to get bigger wire b4 adding amp then i can get 0 ga dist blocks.. i'd also have to move amp/s to a board behind box instead of seat.. thanks though.. i'll try to get video of my speakers one day that utube won't delete but with my mic when i turn sub on u won't be able to anything but distortion., only thing that overrides mids is some rebassed tracks

Why would you need to do all that distribution block crap? Why not run a 8 guage wire to the battery?  Speaker wire at Wal-Mart is pretty cheap. Move amps? Don't you have a trunk? Put new amp in trunk. 

I've got a kicker zx200.4 and some rca's I'd just give ya. If you'd actually use it and it's not a crazy shipping price. I'd be willing to help someone out for 20 /30 $ ya know. Amps not worth anything to me. Thank I gave 100$ 10/ 12 years ago. Haven't had it hooked up in over a year. Never had any problems out of it. It is class a/b so its not that small though.

Pulling hu single din,run speaker wire. idk man sounds like you're being kinda lazy lol

wow u pretty awesome man.. nah i meant on a board in the trunk., but it'd be easier to use dist blocks than run 18ft  of wire., i had some gave them away last yr lol.. it's really running the wire and rca.. i'll get video of mids outside car so u can see it may not be as bad as u think.. i'll pm u..

Well, when you put it that way... I can respect that.

here's my new 65 pound house cat (he lays around and don't bark) he's a good old man.. but like i said really i just don't think it's worth running speaker wire and rca over (i only drive 30 miles a week).. i'll video my mids outside car and show it to u.

i stopped it for the most part because u said that but will never stop saying FU!! lol.. see if this link works just posted, like i said my mic distorts with the sub on so really can't tell how it sounds in car and this is on rebassed track. other songs are actually louder on mids and highs than this

I'm totally joking, broseph. You do you and don't worry about anything I say. I am almost never being completely serious but it's hard to tell that sort of thing over the innnerwebz.

I think it sounds pretty good, all things considered. All that matters is you like the way everything sounds, you been doing it long enough.

thanks. like i said if there was a fairly easy way to get some 8's in the doors that might make me want to do it and get an amp.. i just don't thinking tripling the power to a coax with like a 92 db rating is worth it

Throw this fucker on the grill and feed it to the slackers you're buying food for. Win win win.
