alright figured i would star a new topic ablout this. I came across this topic and thought this would be a good way to go. http://www.soundsolu...?showtopic=9618
So if i was to go this way i wouldent have to get an new expensive headunit. But are there any other amps i could use for this that are a little cheaper.

What car, what headunit do you have, and what size/space requirements do you need for your soon to be new front speakers?

That headunit doesn't have crossovers for running drivers active how are you going to cross them over?

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.

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.
