Critique - will it work out, or sound like crap
I've been doing a lot (LOT) or reading about mobile audio, trying to figure out what woulld be the best setup for my truck without ditching the stock HU (it's the 6CD unit with Sirius built-in).
Here's what I decided on, parts-wise with the emphasis less on quantity of sound, more on quality but with a modest budget.
Using Polk bd650 coaxials - 4
A Rockford 8" sub - P2, 4Ohm in sealed box
An Alpine 4ch amp - MRP-F250
A Profile 2ch amp, to run bridged for the sub - the AP400 one
(the alpine amp has speaker level inputs, I'm told they are ok - was going to use them and use the pre-outs to connect the Profile amp)
Since I bought my stuff, (haven't installed it yet) I've learned that the signal from the stock HU is less than compatible with amplification because of clipping issues. But, I now have all this stuff and I am 100% set on keeping the stock HU - so what are my chances? Will this work out, or have high chances of sounding like crapola? What are my limitations going to be? I'm a bit discouraged at this point.
