Ok, so this is what I have now- $99 cheapo JVC head unit powering these- Sony Explode 6.5" in the doors New Pioneer 3.5" in the dash. A pair of Pioneer 4x10's behind the seat in the cab corners, not hooked to anything yet. Sony Explode mono sub amp powering a 6 year old Polk Audio DB 4ohm 10" sub in a small sealed box. This crap just isn't cuttin it. Obviously. I've been reading a bit in this audio forum, and it seems that Z3PR and chevys are the ones to talk to in here. In one post a Phoenix Gold 5 channel amp was reccomended. I really like this idea...It's hard to find room for two amps and a subwoofer box behind the seat of a regualr cab. I think the OCTANE-R 9.0:5 was the one mentioned- http://www.phoenixgold.com/2004/octane-ramps.html I'd like to run the Infinity Kappa 5 1/4 component set in the Q-logic kick panel pods. The reason for wanting the kick panel pods is becasue my leg blocks the sound from the speaker in the door now. If I move my leg alittle bit, the sound totally changes. The amp, above speakers and kick panel pods are about all I have figured out so far. I'd like to get some opinions on how to put the rest of it together. For a sub, I just want it to sound good. I don't listen to any rap or r&b. Or country. Pantera, Metallica, Atreyu, System Of A Down, etc. I'd like to have a 4 ohm, DVC sub, so I have the option of wiring for 2 ohms if I want. $200 range. I was thinking either the Infinity Kappa Perfect 10d, or the Rockford Fosgate Punch Stage 3. Or anything else that ya'all can reccomend. What to do with the rest of the speakers? Should I leave the speakers in the dash to be powered by the head unit? Should I ditch the 4x10's behind the seat and build some kind of custom thing to mount a set of 6x9's? My thought was to leave the dash speakers powered by the head unit, the 5 1/4 set in the kick panels, and a set of Infinity Kappa 6x9's, or 6.5's in the cab corners and the sub- all powered by the Phoenix Gold amp. For a head unit, I'm open to suggestions. As long as it plays MP3's, is sat radio ready and has the appropriate amount of pre-outs, I don't really care. I do kinda like this Panasonic head unit- http://www.crutchfield.com/S-gQ00jD5yuct/cgi-bin/ProdView.asp?g=300&I=133C9801 Pretty impressive internal amp at 31w rmsx4. So what'cha think?
