Speakers and Sub...

So the Image Dynamic 6x9's I put in the doors aren't really impressing me much these days, and sound crackly, as well as the Rockford 8" sub in the rear I deck I also replaced the stock equipment with.

I'm looking to install a set of Pioneer TS-A6995R door speakers, and a Pioneer TS-SW841D in the rear deck.

The door speakers are 5-Way, 600W; sub is 4ohm 500W.

If I remember correctly, the sub needs to be run at 4ohm, but I could be mistaken, so please correct me if I'm wrong.

Question...good quality swap out, or just crap for crap?

if the sub is rated at 4 ohm, you can run it at either 2 or 8, depends on what you want, and what kind of amp....check out crutchfield.com

here is a good starting point for you

if all you are doing is replacing the stock 8" sub in the rear of the car then you should be ok within reason. if you put some larger power usage sub in place of the (imo already decent sounding) 8" sub you may need to wire in your own amp.

the stock amp will not have a range of low frequency signals you will be looking for

What is the power in the amp? Speakers shouldn't be the problem as most reports have those as very good, but the limited power of the OEM amps is probably holding things back. They are way under powered based on ratings you posted. The amp would just clip and sound bad when you pushed it. the recommendation is for driving speakers at 75%-150% the rates RMS power. There is no OEM pushing that many watts. Free air subs don't make a lot of sound for the power either. Pushing those just clips them.

Yeah...I'm not looking for anything spectacular or competition. Just gotta get rid of these rattling things!

How many ohms should the sub be wired?

Keep it at 2 Ohm if possible, using a dual voice coil sub. I think the OEM sub is also a dual voice coil. There are two sets of connectors on the harness, and the other speakers are about 2 Ohm as well. What is the amp that you have in there?
