Question about Car Amplifiers
Find out if the stock stereo has RCA line level outputs.
If it doesnt, you might want to use a speaker level to line level adaptor box. This will drop the amplified signal that runs your speakers to a low level you can feed into the amp.
If it does have the RCA lines, those would be preferred.
Choose an amp that puts out at least 200 watts RMS. Many amps are overrated. Look for the RMS rating in the fine print.
Dis-reguard the "Peak Power" ratings. They dont mean a whole lot.
The box the subs are in is one of the most important things in the system, because if the box doesnt preform right, you simply wont get the bass. You might get a box at a second hand store or garage sale that would out preform some of the boxes you might find at a WalMart. (The design of the box is everything)
Then make sure you get some quality subs in the box.
Also remember that sometimes a SMALL, quality sub could out preform a LARGER sub of lower quality. Theres no need to use up all of the cargo space in your vehicle for the sub and not have room for anything else.
