Help me out a bit

My setup so far is

Alpine:

CDA-9815

Type R speakers:

5 1/4 componet with 1 in. tweets--Like SPR-196A?
6X9 SPR-694A

I have an old v12 MRV-T505(not sure what specs are), but i'm sure around 50x4.

also I have a class D amp 250x1 @ 4 ohms.

-------------------------------------------------------

With all that said, how would everyone else set up this up as far as letting the hu amp running the tweets and the V12 taking over the doors and 6x9's. And letting the class D push the Type R 12 (i'll be buying soon)


thanks guys

also suggest if I need a new battery, capacitor, new improved alternator...anything thanks guys.

There is no need to power the tweeter's with the head unit as the crossover unit will run to both the speaker in the door and the tweeters. The 4 channel amp should take care of all the internal speakers that you listed.

Thanks for your input, I wasn't aware that the crossover would handle that. I'm an audio noob.

Do you guys think that I need an Optima battery? Or an Alterstart alternator? I don' t want to kill my battery.

v12 MRV-T505 = 2 channel amp running at 50 watts rms at 12volts. You could wire your fronts and rears bridged from the amp and show it 2 ohms for 100watts. You will lose fading from front to rear though.

Or invest in a 50 watt 4 channel amp and power your interior speakers.

With your low powered system (as mine ) you wont be needing to upgrade your alt, or get a cap or change your battery.. but the optima yellows do look good under the hood IMO.

How did you find the ratings on that amp? I don't know where to search, I tried google.com and putting in MRV-t505 did nothing

Edit:
Also could you suggest some 4 ch. amps, to go along with my system?

I used google I guess I have the search skillz

I can suggest many 4 channel amps.. from ones I've used, to entry level ones to crazy high priced ones.. to anywhere in between... what's your budget on a 4 channel?
Are you willing to purchase online or are you doomed to pay local retail prices? I'll need these answered to help you out...

I buy all online, and I have a range of about 400-500 if needed. Just need one that will fit the rest of my system, and no 100 dollar crunch amps please

Everyone's favorite and the first on most everyone's tongue is the JL 300/4... of course if you want more juice from going down to 2ohms then forget it .. all in all an amp that is overpriced retail wise can be had for a great price on eBay.

PPI amps (check them out on eBay) are quite nice.. high build quality.. I own one myself albeit a old school one but still give great unadulterated sound.

A/D/S amps are another choice... but the ones I've seen on eBay are 6 or 8 channel... which can be bridged for a 4 channel application.

Arc Audio & Zapco are some more choices that I love, you can probably find some in the 300-400 range on eBay.

As you can tell.. I only shop on Ebay for audio stuff recently... the prices are great!

So check these brands out.. model numbers arent that important to me I favor more the individual amp specs...and all of the above amp brands will give you excellent sound quality and honest underrated CLEAN power..which is most important. good luck!

Hey just wanted to know if anyone has heard of "DB Drive" amps and speakers, someone was telling me that they were pretty decent. Just wondering.

I guess everyone pretty much agree's with L_fty? Or you guys don't have anything else to add? I'm exploring all amp options.

What does everyone think about Orion amps? Found this one on ebay
