Just as the title reads. I have been working on my system and I have a nice tube 4 channel amp. I will also run 1 amp for sub duty.
Over the past few months of reading plenty of posts and such, it seems a lot of people run their front stage with bi-amp set up. Now due to space, I really can not have more that 2 amps and a eq/cross over. I'm trying to keep everything stealthy and stock looking. Is it necessary to lose say, your rear fill due to cross over points of the front stage. Now my amp is 110 w x 4. This I feel is plenty of power. In fact for a small car, running 440 watts to the front stage seems like a lot.
The car is XR4TI. If anybody knows about this car, I would say it has the cabin room of and early 80's celica or hatch mustang. You see what I have to work with. The front speakers are (by stock sizing)4" or 5x7 depending on the mounting(I have both). This is in the lower dash at a 30* angle facing the floor. The 4" brackets correct the angle and the are facing the front, not so for the 5x7. I will be making door pods. I would like them to be sealed or vented. < does not make sense, huh. This will be driver dictated.
So basically, do I combine the the rear fill with the woofer on the front stage and give the tweeters their own set of channels or use the passive cross overs for the front and split the amp up front to back.
Thank you for your time.
