yeah I did some research and compared with the kenwood equivalent however didnt like the massive chin, so get a 12 inch sub which is around 300w constant/rms paired with an amp which can run at 2ohm as that is the sweet spot. yeah like my brother in law and cousins I have asked about this but they have been a bit slow with responses. which is why I turned to the lovely HUKD community :) but the component speakers I should look to pair with a 4 channel amp and then use that. Yeah ill be honest, I would rather get a decent H/U now and then look to keep with the current system for a few years changing from car to car just to keep consistancy :) thanks for your comment really appriciate it
That is some H/U. Over the years I've had a mix of Pioneer, Kenwood, JVC, Alpine, Vibe, JBL, Blaupunkt, Denon and Clarion, some new and some secondhand. Depending on how far you want to go I'd start with an amp and sub, as that is what you will notice the most first. As a general rule 2*10 is equal to 1*12, and I would be looking at 250 to 350 watts RMS up to drive your sub/s. Look for an amp that will happily run 2ohm. Just make sure the sub box is the right type and size for the bass sound you want to create, as that can have a massive impact. Next I'd consider adding a four channel amp and new custom fits. Cables I wouldn't go to mad, I'm not saying some of the serious stuff doesn't add to the overall quality but unless your super serious I'm just not sure you will feel it good value for money. However buy ofc speaker cable by the roll as it's a lot cheeper that way. What I have learnt over the years is clarity is more important than overall volume, and the good thing is you are starting with a decent H/U. Still not as good as an Alpine 7939 (lol) but that would be giving my age away!
