It really depends on how big of an amp and speakers, and how many you are planning on running The main thing you are concerned with is whether or not your alternator can handle the amperage draw. If you are going to be drawing too many amps, I would look at upgrading your alternator to one with a higher output. You will hear a lot of people talking about using capacitors or a second battery, but you still will run into the problem with your alternator not putting out enough amps.

I recently installed 4 speakers, a deck, an amp, and subs into my truck. About 8 hours after I installed them the speakers suddenly went down, the subs kept thumping, but the speakers are down.

The speaker wire connected to the amplifier if you used one could have come lose or in the back of the cd deck could have come lose. Just check those basics first to make sure everything is strongly connected and make sure you have the correct gauge wire because if you have something rated to high or too low it might not create a solid link

Where is best location to mount speakers besides trunk and trunk deck & doors?

Kick Panals are good, boxes are expensive though as they must be custom fit. Dashboard mounts, prolly only for componant speakers not subs. But if you wanna add speakers, you can always put more in the doors, trunk, or trunk deck to. Or replace your factory trunk deck, or door panals, and customize them to fit as many speakers as you like, have fun with it..

Car stereo Installation Help

As much as it might sound retarded i want to suggest to you that intead of all that hongkong stuff- just go to walmart and get the sony package that comes with the deck/cdplayer and the 4 speakers it comes with a pair of door speakers and a set of 6x9s and all the wiring that you need for a basic install-plus the deck has the rca pre-outs to install an amp. Get an amp and subs from a pawn shop at least you can be sure that it works before you buy it that way- I'm not knocking your idea, but it could be simpler and when you deal with flea-bay you never know whats going to show up on your doorstep. Good luck to you

I have a Pyle PLD3MU head unit and a sony XM-ZR1252 amp (2 channel) and the car has 2 door speakers, 2 rear deck speakers, and 2 12" subs. What is the best configuration to hook this up?

Run your 12" subs off the amp make sure to Xover for bass only.
Try running the 4 speakers direct to the stereo may not be enough power, Might have to invest in another amp and speaker upgrade to get it sounding just right.
But its a place to start.

Hooking the mra-f350 to my highs

You will only need to connect the door speakers to the MRA-F350. In short, the connections will be as follows:

Deck---->MRA-F350 amp---->Door speakers
...................................\---->Sub amp---->Sub(s)

Just make sure you use the optical digital output of the deck to connect to the optical digital input of the MRA-F350 amp, not the RCA preamp connections.
