Default Need help with my system please!!!

Ok, I need a little help here. I'm planning on buying four Pioneer 4x6 speakers for $100 all together, and two 6x9 3-way Pioneer speakers at $100 for both. They are going into my Grand Prix. Two 4x6 go into the dash, two 4x6 go into the doors, and the 6x9 go into the rear deck.

I'm going to get this JVC MP3 Player: JVC KD-SX980

What kind of amp would you suggest for me to run all the speakers? I'm not going to have subs. I just want clear quality sound at an affordable price. :)

Yes, they are in stock locations. Not that odd really. A lot of luxury cars, and cars with small dashes have speakers in the doors.

Here are the 4x6 speakers: http://www.crutchfield.com/cgi-bin/S...SG4647&o=m&a=0

I'm not sure which 6x9s speakers my local audio shop has[they have blue ones and white ones].

As per the other thread, 3 pairs of speakers would be overkill.. i rather see you invest in a nice component set rather than 3 pairs.

I'm going back to the audio shop today, and I'm going to find out the model numbers of the speakers so that I can list the exact specs of the speakers.

damn 3 sets of speakers in a pontiac? I never knew :D

I'd say you're better off using the set that's in the dash for imaging and sound hitting almost at ear level and the rear fill.

A nice 4 channel amp will hit those nicely.
Jl Audio, Kenwood even Blaupunkt Class T amps are nice.

Are you still using your stock Head unit?

*UPDATE*

I just spent $1,000 on a new sound system. I wasn't really planning on spending around 1k on a system, but everything just fit together well.

Anyway, I got four 4x6 Pioneer Premier speakers, and two 6x9 Pioneer Premier speakers. I also got a Pioneer GM-X364 300w amp. To top it all off, I got a Pioneer DEH-P7400MP MP3 player.

Looking for some in-dash flash? The DEH-P7400MP CD receiver boasts Pioneer's revolutionary Organic EL display, with its ultra-high resolution, exciting graphics, and wide viewing angle (no more squinting in bright sunlight). If you're an Internet music fan, this versatile receiver plays MP3 files recorded on CD-R and CD-R/Ws with the ability to store up to 200 song files (approximately 10 hours of music) per disc, it's like having a CD changer in your dash.

The built-in MOSFET50 amp will fire up your speakers. Make tone adjustments with Easy EQ's 5 preset curves and 3-band equalizer, or improve your imaging with Sound Focus EQ's independent front/rear tone settings. You'll find front and preamp outputs for connection to outboard amps the rear outputs can be switched from subwoofer to full-range operation.

The Supertuner III is celebrated for its excellent AM/FM reception, and the DEH-P7400MP also includes XM Satellite Radio controls (XM tuner, antenna, and subscription required). For multi-disc excitement, connect an optional Pioneer CD changer add a Pioneer changer to your receiver order, and save $$ with Crutchfield's package discount. A wireless remote is included.

Key Features:
detachable, fold-down face
Organic EL display
plays MP3 files recorded on CD-R and CD-R/W
Supertuner III
XM radio-ready (XM Radio subscription, tuner, antenna required to receive the satellite radio signal.)
Easy EQ
Sound Focus EQ
MOSFET50
CD changer controls
two sets of preamp outputs
rear preamp outputs include a 50/80/125 Hz low-pass filter for use with a amp and subwoofer
wireless remote
clock
22 watts RMS/50 watts peak x 4 channels
CD frequency response 5-20,000 Hz
CD signal-to-noise ratio 94 dB
FM sensitivity 9 dBf
1-year warranty


My car sounds like no other.

My amp: http://www.pioneerelectronics.com/Pi...,21384,00.html

My 6x9s: http://www.pioneerelectronics.com/Pi...9,1465,00.html

I'm not sure what model the 4x6 speakers are because I forgot to take the box with me after I had everything installed.
