    New Speakers in , but more questions raised

    Decided to replace the front door speakers , and the rear deck speakers.

    Went with pioneer 6.5 inch 260 watt 4 ways up front (PN: TS-A1681R)

    and Alpine 6x9 3 way 250 watt units in the back (PN: SPS-690A) of coarse you have to do some drilling in the back , stock units are snap ins , 4 holes each side after removing the rear seat and parecl shelf cover , also saved myself some trouble and got the wire harness adpaters from best buy for the 94 deville.

    Install went smoothly , gained ALOT of sound quality , as these are combined with the Kenwood reciver i had put in a year ago .....

    Consulting the factory manual for removal instructions for the rears i found that there are provisions in the rear doors for additional 6.5 inch speakers ...

    So the questions i have now :

    #1 is there a amp thats around 200 watt that i can run from the reciver then to the factory harness to power all the speakers? apprently the kenwood 50x4 may not be enough ...

    #2 is there such thing as a 6.5 inch subwoofer ? it would be very slick to install 2 6.5 inch subs in the rear doors , powering them with yet another amp to gain the rest of the "lows"....

    #3 should i leave the factory tweeders hooked up ? they are seperate units int he doors , but im wondering if they should be unplugged at this point ...

    It took me a little while to remember which site has a watt-based classification system. I´m not in the US so I don´t have my link archives with me. But, here you can look at a lot of 100-300 W amps:

    Take a look and pick a few we can comment on.

    As for the 6" subs, the same site has some:

    Of course, their performance is not going to be like the one of bigger subs, but they may benefit the system. You may also consider using dynamat or similars to improve bass and overall sound quality from the speakers.
