Re: How many speakers does the stereo feed?

Bapos, thanks once again. No worries. Are all your speakers going to run off the dash stereo, or are there going to be separate speakers in the back off of a separate stereo? I'll probably wind up putting two up front (driver and passenger) then two right behind each front seat, and possibly a sub. Or maybe ceiling speakers?

Re: How many speakers does the stereo feed?

I probably wont run any of the speakers off the head unit at all. It doesnt put out very much power for my application. I am building more of a party/tailgate but so they will all run off amplifiers. i have some 2, 4, and 6 channel models I have used in other cars that have been shelved for bigger amps. This is a great way for me to use some of the older amps I have acculated over time.

I plan on running either a coaxial speaker ( either 6.5 and 1 inch tweet or maybe a 6x9) in the celiling for the mids and highs and 10's and 15's on the floor for the low end. The amps will run the proper frequencey to the speakers to get a more efficient use of the amps power. As I said earlier I will turn off some of those amps when not needed... it rattle peoples fillings when they want to rock out.

I think your setup will work with no issues. It just depends on how loud you want it to be. I am hoping when I insulate up it will quiet down my bus. As of right now its LOUD. Hard to hear ofer the gas engine cause at highway speed its buzzing like a chainsaw so I will over come it with more powerful amps cause head units typically dont put out much power.
