Default Help on Sony

I'm looking to get the following...

http://www.crutchfield.com/cgi-bin/S...0&I=158XSHF600

http://www.caraudioexpert.com/produc...roduct_ID=1805

http://www.caraudioexpert.com/produc...roduct_ID=1989

Right now I have 3 Sony 6x9's in the back rear hatch cover....

The question is what amp should I go with to power the 2 Sony 10's.......either sony or fosgate....

now on wiring up the inside speakers.....should I get a 4 channel amp to hook up the 3 6x9s and the 6.5 component speakers?? or just a 2 channel amp for the 3 6x9's and leave the front components to the deck???

What Amps should I get??? Sony or Fosgate??

Any HELP would be great...thanx

I wouldn't leave to front components powered by the deck. In real life you are gonna see around 20-25 watts per channel out of the deck(always look to RMS not peak power). Seeing that I would go with the 4-channel (unless you get a seperate amp for the insides) only problem here is that you say you have 3 6X9's and you are adding 2 more sets of wires to the mix with the fronts's meaning you would need 5 channels. The solution I would go with in this case would be to power one of the 6 x 9's off the deck this way you don't HAVE to buy another amp. The only other solution would be to double up your channels on the amp running 2 speakers off 1 channel, I personally would not do that. As far as amps go I would suggest you stick with sony(since you seen to like them alot) maybe try the XM1600GXD, or XM2150GSX. If you are going to buy all those at once I will hook you up with a real good price, if not I can still beat all all the prices you seem to have so far. Here is my pricing:
Sony XSHF600G $250 shipped
Sony CDX-M730 $309 shipped
Sony XSL1046 $110 shipped(I can't beat their price on that they must have gotten a special purchase) If you get it all at the same time save on shipping and save some more $. On the sony amps I can do $180 shipped for the 2150gsx and $270 shipped on the 1600gxd. E-mail me if you have any other questions!

It's good to know that another board-user can hook you up with better prices than those you find. That's one of the few reasons why I keep coming back here.

As for your question, i think you could go with that audio setup you just described except that i believe that the amp can hook 3 speakers on 2 channels. (wiring diagrams anybody?) i'm not quite sure though, so dont try it until someone else tells you if there is a certain wiring diagram or if it sounds like crap.

i have a rockford fosgate 800Wx4 amp. it's pretty good, but i've heard a few that are better... and i know it should because it's hooked up to a pioneer HU and two 15" kicker subs (enclosed box :()
