I'm looking to get a brand new audio setup in my car. I don't think my head unit (JVC KW-NT30HD) will be powerful enough to power my speakers. So i think i will need to get 2 amps unless there is one out there that can handle 4 speakers and 2 subwoofers.The 2 subs Ill be using:Rocksford FosgateT0D410 :
Dual Coil10" subwoofer with with selectable 2- or 8-ohm impedanceKevlar® reinforced paper cone with aluminum dust cappower range: 150-550 watts RMS (1100 watts peak power)frequency response: 25-500 Hzsensitivity: 81.2 dBAnd ill be using 4 of these speakers: Rockford Fosgate Punch P1683 3-way 6"x8" speakers power range: 6-65 watts RMS (130 watts peak power)frequency response: 65-24,000 Hzsensitivity: 90 dBThe Head Unit will be a JVC KW-NT30HD Willing to spend what ever it takes to get a nice sound system. Any tips or suggestions would be greatly appreciated! I dont know too much about setting them up, im sure its not too hard, if you could actually suggest a certain product that would be awesome! TY
If you don't have the subs yet, you would do better with DVC-2-ohm subs (rather than the DVC-4-ohm subs you have selected).
You could actually get away with a single 5-channel amp - like a ZX700.5 - but the subs could use a bit more power (again if they were DVC-2-ohm).
(Actually, the DVC-4-ohm subs are fine if you are comfortable running the amp at 1-ohm).
Hope This Helps!!!
Anyone else have suggestions?

Thanks for your input, i think i will be switching to the other subs! Everything looks good. just have one last question. Do i need both of these for the 4 chan amp speaker install?:
-StreetWires ZeroNoise 5 ZN5K-08
-StreetWires Zero Noise 5 Stereo Patch Cables
Okay - it's going to get a bit complicated here ...

Actually - I'm not sure I would. There are more 2-ohm stable subwoofer amps out there, but you can get a more powerful subwoofer amp for less money if you run at 1-ohm.
(I know it contradicts my earlier advice, but I'd probably go with the DVC-4-ohm subs personally).

Okay - now it gets a bit complicated ....
First the RCA's - you will need two pairs of RCA cables for the 4-channel amp and one pair of RCA's for the subwoofer amp. Streetwires makes a good product but they are expensive and you might not have a noise issue with standard (no-name) RCA's.
For the power wires (same comments about brand and price), the M-4075 uses 60A of fuses and the Hifonics uses 140A - so you either need:
If your head has 6 way RCA outputs -
for the 4 ch amp -
for the sub amp -
Alright thanks a bunch guys, ill post another comment when i get it all setup!
To clarify - I'm not seeing exactly what I would recommend from Crutchfield outside of the amp wiring kits.
I probably wouldn't quite go with the $9 EFX cables (although they would probably work), but I'd look for something with twisted pair below the $30 ZN 5 cables.
The ZN 3's are good also. I use the middle of the road 5's and have great results.
Without getting into trouble with the forum admins, I would look at the Streetwires ZN1's, Scosche E2, Stinger PRO2, etc.
Because my name is on the business, I work hard to make sure you get the best possible shopping experience. I look forward to hearing your comments .
