Looking for an Alpine, Kenwood or Pioneer set of 6 1/2" speakers for the doors and a 12" sub and an amp to run it off of. Thinking about running the 6 and halfs without an amp and running the single sub with a 1000 watt amp or so with a bass control knob and have the sub be bass beats only

I'd reccomend components over regular speakers.

what else is the sub gonna do, vocals?

Anyways, I'll tell you right now, to get an ACTUAL 1000 watts and something that requires it, isnt going to be cheap. On top of that, your cheap 6.5" speakers you plan on buying will be a waste if you actually want that much bass, I really dont picture you hearing much of anything but bass.

So either...
A. Back off on the bass a hair
B. Buy GOOD speakers and amp them.

you're gonna want an amp for those components. Stock deck does what, 13 watts a channel on a good day? After market does like 20? If you really want 1000 watts on a sub, and dont want to amp your components, all you're going to hear is bass.

Kyle, you may wanna read up on stereos before you jump into it...

all the sub does is bass.


i have my RF 4x6" pos speakers running on 200 watts. the keep up really well with my L7 at 1000watts, but if i ever wanted to give my sub more then 1000watts i would need to upgrade to some real speakers and add some more power.

do you know what you want your stereo to sound like? what kinda music do you listen to? do you want to feel the music only, do you what to have ear piercing vocals, combination of both?

dont build your system based on name brands per-say, do it based on the results they will yield.
