Hey guys,

I'm a novice level audio guy, so I was hoping to get some input on my system, maybe ways to get more power or optimize performance. Anyway, here's my setup in my 2007 Altima.

Head unit: Pioneer DEH-P5000UB

Sub Amp (bridged): Cadence TXA3002 - 4 Ohm RMS Power: 2 x 150 Watts @ 13.8 Volts, 2 Ohm RMS Power: 2 x 300 Watts @ 13.8 Volts, 4 Ohm Bridged RMS Power: 1 x 600 Watts @ 13.8 Volts

Sub: 12" Alpine Type-R dual 2 ohm

Components: PG rsd65cs

Amp - Comps: Cadence TXA-1502 - 4 ohm RMS Power: 2 x 75 Watts, 2 ohm RMS Power: 2 x 150 Watts. Crossover mounted on kick panel.

I have absolutely no experience in tuning, so what should I adjust on my head unit to get the most out of my comps?

Lastly, I currently have 3" dash speakers and the stock rear speakers above the trunk. What would be the benefit of disconnecting these altogether, or would it be better to have everything playing at once? Wow, lots of questions, any advice is greatly appreciated!

Overall the system sounds fine, but definitely do not use the factory speakers for ANYTHING but paperweights.

Pay attention to the little things, like how the speakers are mounted, don't strip the screws, run you audio leads on the opposite side of the car from the power leads etc. Make sure your sub box is the proper size for the sub and you will have a good start.

Oh yeah, Dynamat is your friend.
