I second replacing the head unit as the first step - well, in your case second step (I would have done that prior to getting any speakers). You can get a very nice head unit for less than $200 with iPod controls, an amp turn on / power antenna lead, and, most importantly, low level RCA outputs. IMHO, using an amp without RCA jacks is a PITA that never produces the sound that you expect. Most modern head units also have a dedicated subwoofer output with a built in cross-over that is controlled independently of the other speakers so you can fade the bass in or out to suit your tastes.


2006 GT - Vortech polished w/ intercooler, Eibach suspension, Hurst short-throw, some other goodies - tuned by Paul's High Performance. It moves...

and it collects dust admirably while parked for repairs in the garage...

SOLD - 1995 Black Mustang GT, AODE. Loved it, but I had to let it go...
