Let me just clarify... Before I thought amps were needed only to power subs, I didn't realize that speakers can sound much better with an addition of a 4ch amp. So I ordered a cheap Pioneer GM-4000F, 4ch, 300watt amp. Plenty for me right now. I'm doing minor upgrades to my DD to improve my listening experience (I have Alive in Chains MTV unplugged that could sound a lot better). I'll need to replace my rear speaker wires (left, rear 6x9 has issues with volume, recently replaced) and wire an amp. I've installed speakers before, HU's and I know how to solder pretty well. Currently I have: 2x 6.5" 3way coax in the front, Kenwood 2x 6x9 2 way JBL in the back Panasonic something or other HU I need some guidance though... -what do I need to know before I get started that will cause me to stop mid-way and run to a stereo shop? -where is the best place to put the amp? -how do the wires run (hu to amp to speakers or...)? I don't have a grasp on the basics like ohm and etc, but will read up for the next few days. we all have to start somewhere, right?
