So what are some good 4 channel amps to use. That are somewhat cheap $350 and under.

So going 2-way do i need mid-range or will these also work

peerless

vifa

By definition of 2 way there is no extra midrange only driver.

On that thread that i have at the top the guy has a sundown sax-100.4 and it says

The Sundown 100.4 can be used to crossover actively and the guy has a Pioneer DEH-P5900iB so couldent i run a 2-way active system that way. And arent ther any other amps that could do that for cheaper.

Also what are some suggestions for drivers?

You could use your amps, but I would highly suggest something like a headunit in particular for a first try. It is much simpler i fyou can make changes in the front of the car and not have to pop the trunk. Also, you might be just as well off in the long run as you should be able to sell your headunit and the amps will be cheaper without, in particular if you can buy used amps.

For a new h/u I really think the 880 is bang for the buck the best. Some people have had issues with them so get it from a good place, but I love the flexibilyt of it.

So is $310 a good price for that headunit. So now we have that covered. On to an amp and the drivers. Probaly want to spend a round $300 on an amp do i want a 2 or 4 channel and what are some ideas. And spend around $300 on drivers what are some options there.

x2 on the 880. By 880, M5 means pioneer premier DEH-P880PRS if you were confused.

Just installed mine a few days ago and I couldn't be more happy. The adjustments just make all the difference.

Good luck!

What sort of listening preferences and installation locations do you have? Also, would help to know if you have a metal/soft tweet preference or cone preference.

Im just looking for a front stage that will blend good with my substage which is most likely going to be an FI Q. So this is going to be a SQ system.

So what are some good 4 channel amps that are $350 and under.

What are some good drivers that will work in this install.

Lots of good ones. In fact for what you are doing I wouldn't shy away from used. It all depends on what exactly you think you need.

Helix Dark Blue 4 channel will let you run active. That's what I use. Woofersetc has them for $300....

Don't worry about the tweeters, worry about the mids. You can always turn your gains down.
