    Alpine Amp and HU with Monsoon speakers

    Yep. I'm officially confused as to what the previous owner has done. The Monsoon HU was replaced with the Alpine CDA-9835 HU and the amp was replaced with the Alpine KCA-410C (under the passenger seat). Now my question is what do I need to do to make my new Polk speakers work in my car? I took off the door panel and saw the monsoon wiring set up, can I tie into that? My new speakers also have a built in tweeter so I think I can reuse all the wires. Just wondering if it will be that simple.

    Thanks.

    I retract the amp part. It is a link source adapter

    So that means it is running off the monsoon amp and if you are a camaro you will need 2 ohm front speakers if you intend to keep the factory amp. For the rears...It's decision time!! you can either leave the sail panel SUBs and install a 4inch full range in the hatch area and keep the monsoon amp OR remove the subs and install full range speakers in the sail panel and run the wires from the hatch speakers up to the sails while eliminating the hatch speakers. This will of corse leave you with no subs. From this some people just add a stealth sub enclosure and amp in the hatch. This alows you to run the factory monsoon amp to the full range speakers and an after market sub and amp for your lows.
    OR
    you can delete the factory amp and run 2 after market amps, 1 for full range speakers and the other for subs, OR they now make 5 channel after market amps that can run both the 4 main channels and the sub channels. By doing all after market amps you can also go with a standard 4 ohm speaker up front insted of the 2 ohm, OR if you disire you can buy after market amps that can run in 2 ohm and use all 2 ohm speakers.
    So....did I loose you???? lol I have no idea why they decided to use 2 ohm speakers up front and for subs in the camaro but used 4 ohm speakers everywhere in the Firebirds lol.

    To make it simple tell us what is your budget, what have you already got to work with, and what are you looking for sound wise?
