    How would be the best way to do things.

    Currently my head unit is controlling 4 sony explode 6x9's (1 in each door of the burb). I installed a 4ch amp and 2 subwoofers also now.

    Would it be better to just leave the 6x9's connected to the head unit and the subs on the amp or run everything thru the amp?

    Amp = Volfenhag ZX-7160
    6x9's = XS-V6933
    Subs = Pyramid PNW10590 10"

    And I don't want to hear about getting new stuff, cause I'm using this stuff until I can afford something better.

    Whats the power and impedance specs for the amps and subs? This will definitely affect your decision, as it affects how the subs are wired, and how much power is distributed to the system from the amplifier.

    Use your 4 channel amp for the explodes and another amp for the subs.

    If I would I could, but this is what I've got to work with now.

    And the impedance of your subs?

    All I can remember off the top of my head right now is.

    Peak: 1000W
    RMS: 500W
    4ohm

    Well, with dual 4ohm subs you can either wire them up to two channels of your amp (leaving two open for 6x9's), but that would only send 50watts to each sub. Just bridge the amp and run each sub to the bridged channel. That way each sub will see 170watts.
