My audio setup with some vids.

Not sure if I've ever posted pics/vids of my system. My Headunit is a Kenwood DPX301 with 4 Kenwood 6x8's all around and a 10" Kenwood Amplified sub enclosure. The sub doesn't hit real hard cause its limited to 200w but its perfect for what I want. lmk what you think!

Put on

I like it, have you considered putting the door speakers on an amp?

Thanks Justin! I've heard of people doing that but have never thought of doing it myself. Does it make them sound better or does it just help the battery some?

It will make the door speakers sound better, and it will take some strain off the heanunit to provide the power to the speakers

My budget is probably going to be $50 and under. How much wattage does it need to have?

I've always wanted to try that sub setup! perfectly sized amp, sub, and box all-in-one.

that lanzar amp really isint enough (its like 50w x2 rms), you can do better for $15 more right now on ebay. theres an old school underrated 65w x4 chan amp i've been eyeballing for a week now...let me know if your interested.

I also have a alpine 4x45w amp thats in great condition but I can't let go of it for less then $75 and its not nearly as good as the one I suggest you buy on ebay.

An amp will bring out the mid-range/bass of your door speakers and give you more dynamic sounding music. not only that but the amp will typicly have a highpass crossover on it so that you can cut the bass from the door speakers so that they play cleaner.

for those speakers I would put them on at least 100W rms a piece. but for $50 I don't think that's possible. but for $65 though you would be amazed at the improvement.

This sub is meant to be in a Ranger, its perfect. Found it on CL for $50 haha. But yeah during the winter I want to do the How-to Korey did with the bigger wattage alternator and I might do this then. I've looked around a little and there's not much in the $50 range, I didn't really no the prices of these til I started searching. But there was alot more in the $65 range so thats where I'll be looking at then. Thanks! If you still have the amp in late fall I'll shoot you a pm.
