quick rundown on what i did last week.
I replaced my Pioneer HU with a new 2006 model Pioneer DEH-4800MP HU. Cool.
Added a 4ch Alpine MRP-F250 amp. (40wX4) tiny i know. ;)
had them replace all the wires.... power and speaker/interconnects. 16 guage i think.
I am running older 5x7's in the rear... Polk EX357. and stock in the fronts till i can find someone locally who sells Polks around here. It's tough man.
So i calibrated the crossover in the amp and levels as best I could. I know the EX357's can't handle alot of bass.. but once i added the amp... now nearly all my bass is gone. Before when they were running off the old HU, the bass was better.. albiet, easily clipped.
So now i can't fingure out how to get some of the bass back other than to add a subwoofer. But truely, i know the EX357's can produce some bass.. they sound like only the tweeters are working now. I mean, the bass is only about 20% of what it used to be.
Ok next ?. Which subwoofer would you all recommend and amp too. I'm not looking for intense volume, just enough bass to add to the music I listen to.
If i add say a Polk MM2104 what amp would drive that? I have pre outs on my HU and Alpine amp for it.
