As with a number of other posters here, I'm about to do my first sound system upgrade and I'm more than a little lost. I have an Infiniti FX35 that has a stock Bose system. I am really aiming for sound quality and don't want to create a ghetto-blaster type of vehicle.
In phases, I was first going to drop in two 8" subwoofers like Polk Momo MM2084DVCs. Maybe 10", I haven't figured out how much space I'm willing to give up in the back. To drive these, I understand I need an amplifier. I was looking at the Carbon 400.4 4-channel amp. If I have done my homework correctly I can bridge two of these channels to power the 2 subs.
Here's where I get confused, regarding the 2 channels that are remaining, can I use them to power the rest of the speakers? A total of 9 (!) (3 of those infamous Bose "twiddlers", 4 door speakers, two tweeters)
Or do I get a dedicated amp for the subs (Carbon 500.1) and a 2nd amp for the rest of the speakers? Oh yes, and I do have the stock Bose amp that's currently powering the whole system that I could re-use.
Sorry for the long and confusing post, this is all new to me. Any advice is most welcome!
