First off, I have no idea about sound systems. Two of my older brothers have installed them, but I can't seem to get them to talk to me (they live in other states) long enough to figure out what I am doing. I'll be graduating high school at the end of the month and am going to reward myself with upgrading the crappy speakers I have in my LT.
This is the setup I am looking at installing:
Front speakers: Kenwood eXcelon KFC-X132 5-1/4
Back speakers: Kenwood KFC-6982ie 6"x9
Sub: Kenwood eXcelon KFC-XW1222D 12"
, 2000 watts dual 2 ohms
Amp: Kenwood eXcelon KAC-X4R
, 1200 watt max, 4-channel
(I'm a Kenwood guy, by the way)
So, first things first. Are 5-1/4" and 6"x9" after market speakers the proper size to replace an '06 LT's speakers? I looked around, and this is what I found to be the correct size. Just want to double check.
Second, I'm wanting to run all the speakers and sub through that amp instead of my head unit (which would be impossible). Therefore I won't have to buy an after marker head unit? I would really prefer to keep my OEM HU if possible (that's a personal preference). And to go a long with this, I would be able to hook the amp up to the stock HU...?
And finally, that amp is sufficient to power those four speakers and sub, right? This is probably the part that has confused me the most as there isn't a "set" amount of power an amp needs to power a system. I don't want to super over power my items nor under power them.
Sorry for the dumb questions guys!
