Need car audio advice for my old convertible
I have an old convertible with an Alpine CDA-7949 head unit connected to an amp under the seat and four speakers. I know the amp is a good one but I can't remember the brand. I removed the two speakers from the door and replaced my door panels to give the interior a cleaner look.
Now, I only have the two 5.25 two-way speakers in the rear and I'd like to keep it that way.
I want to replace the head unit and amp since the amp has been finicky and the head unit won't play my iPod. I'm looking at the CDA-9884 or CDA-9886. The 9886 has 4v pre-outs.
Both units claim 50Wx4 max power output. Do I need an amp with these H.U.s? Remember, this is an old convertible - lots of road noise. Any suggestions on a 2-channel low-profile amp?
