@finalday7:
You powered 4 speakers AND two subs with one amp? Thats what I would prefer to do, but you have a 4channel amp. Are you recommending I get two separate amps, or one 4ch like yours?

Im thinking a 500w amp for the speakers, and a 1000w amp for the two subs. I really would prefer to get just one amp

I'm really looking to power up my speakers for rock music, I don't need something that will set off car alarms. So perhaps something nice, but not overkill.
Yes I did power all 4 speakers and both subs off one amp. I even had another pair of 6x9's on there for awhile.
You will save a ton of money just sticking with one amp. I don't know if you plan on installing all this yourself but you'll save a ton of money eaither way.
I bought my custom box from subthump.com. I'm pretty sure they have one for your vehicle. Their inexpensive but built really well. Great customer service so check them out. If you do decide to get 2 amps, make sure you invest in a good 1 or 1.5 farad cap. That will save your battery and stop your lights from dimming. Let me know if you need anything else.

Is it truly worth a $110 dollar noticeable difference having an amp for the JL speakers versus no amp for them?
I had a pair of boston acoustic 6.5's in my camaro. When I first installed them, they had no amp, just going straight to the deck and they sounded good. After about a month I added an amp and it was a night and day difference. So do I recommend an amp, deff. But if it is a money thing, which with me it always is, then just wait till you get some more and go for it then. :great:

Yeah the amp will be great on your speakers and subs. I think I had the a6004t which was the model before that one. I'm not exactly sure what kind of subs they are but i'm sure they'll sound great. Let us know how it all turns out. :great:
