    Need Help.....

    I am about to upgrade my stereo system on a 98 WS6 with about an $800 budget figured. My plan is to install the following:

    -Pioneer/Panasonic HU- approx. $200
    -replace speakers in doors and sails - approx. $200
    -2x Pioneer 12" subs- approx. $200
    -one amp to power subs- approx. $200

    I'm leaving out the hatch speakers to make room for the 12's b/c I'm fab'ing boxes on either side in place of those panels. (Not too hot on using my T-top storage- I NEED THAT)

    -So, will I be good to fire the subs from the amp, w/ the remaining spkrs powered by the HU?
    -Will I notice much excluding those rear speakers?
    -Any advise or info for the install or components is greatly appreciated.


    Fire back.....

    I would recommend buying a quality set of components for the doors and forgetting about rear speakers all together. I don't have any rear speakers at all in my setup. When I demo it for people they can't believe there aren't any speakers behind them even though it sounds as if there is. I've even had to pop off the speaker grills a few times just to prove to them that there's no speaker there.

    awesome.

    Thanx Rascal,
    So, you think running good door spkrs from the HU and 12" subs from the amp will suffice for the system?

    What's the best spkrs you'd throw in the doors for round $150 (give or take)?

    I really couldn't make a specific recommendation. I haven't been keeping up with all the latest and greatest on the market these days. I don't even know if you can get a quality set of component speakers for $150. Maybe some of the other members will chime in with recommendations.
