beater audio Q's (kriston, paul, check in)

Ok so the sound system in the beater sucks (surprised?)

Good news is i pulled some stuff out of the bmw before i stored it.

Have a great headunit, and a sub.

More importantly, i have an amp. 4 channel, 500 watts RMS.

Here's my question. Obviously i'll hook up the headunit, and wire up the sub and the amp. But (i'm assuming) a 1989 accord doesn't have a stock amp.

So i'd like to replace the cabin speakers (most are blown anyway)

So i have 100 watts RMS coming out of the amp for the cabin channels. I'm pretty sure that's not a lot.

Should i set up just a L and R speaker?

Or can i do FL,FR,RR,RL?

and just make RR, FR, and FL,RL wired up to the same output?

In whichever case is true, what speakers should i get? they HAVE to be cheap, i refuse to spend real money on a honda. If you got used ones lemme know. However cheap speakers can be found on ebay, please just let me know what i should be looking for.

(has to be able to play somewhat clear reasonably loud, doesn't have to be blaring, just something to take my mind off the fact i'm driving a honda)

thanks guys!

Does your sub run off the 4-channel amp? As in, do you bridge two of thm to run the sub, and use the other two for speakers? I'd do it L/R, both left speakers running off the same channel, and both right speakers running off another channel. This begs the question, how is this amp @ 2-ohms? You're going to be wringing it out if you run the sub and internal speakers off of it (it will get hot fast), depending on model of course.

OK.HONDA do not a stock amp,so you can run your 4ch into a 3ch just no fading,you ch 1-2 to the front only,ch 3-4 bridge and the rear of the deck,the amp may get warm but it will not hert it at all,just turn the gain to 8 o'ckock and you are done.......and to answer to TOMs idea here and not a good idea to,WHY, well it is running a 2ch amp mix/mono,I would 4ohms on the amp only.......but if was a H/C amp than yes .....

its a lightning audio striker 500.4

(rockford fosgate components i think)

400watts RMS bridged for the sub

then there's two channels, left and right for cabin, 50 RMS each.

i think that's at 4ohms, not sure about 2ohms

dan you know more about the audio system in my car than i do. I think i have like 20 watts RMS per channel out of the HU.

Also, tomek, about the amp overheating, its a 500watt amp, right now powering a 150 watt sub. It should do ok

honestly that will be fine for your rear speakers. and for the amp you could only be puttin out 150 watts of power to the sub and its a 1000watt amp. but if you have ur sub at 1ohm and the amp only goes to 2ohm it will heat up. to much resistance
