    Got some ideas for the sounds in my car but can people help.

    Ok first off i want a motorised screen, i thought a nice alpine all in one player at about 1200 would be nice. But it is expensive so could i maybe buy a motorised screen/headunit as in DVD/MP3/VCD player and hook that up?

    Also i want comps up front and coax's in the back. The speakers will be about 50 w rms each. As anything more to amp properly is costing a fair bit. I was looking at DLS/focal/genesis etc. Wantin to spend £120 ish on front and £100 or less in back just to fill the sound.

    What amp could i use to run this? anyone got a good 4 ch about 50/60W rms per channel to reccomend. about £200

    I have the subs from a previous car and amp, Audiobahn in chrome and a 2 ch amp for both subs.

    Would this work? anyone got anything to add.

    You could go for the all in one unit, however i just bought the Alpine 1004R H/U with motorized screen, and added on a 6 disc changer and single din dvd player. At least then you can switch between music or dvd rather than just having one unit

    The rest cant help u on im afraid

    Your speaker choice sounds good. Best thing to do is try to listen to each speaker setup first to see that it suits your tastes.

    As the Alpine screen has a built in amp you could run the rear speakers from it & use a 2 channel amp for the front speakers.
    For your £200 budget I would reccomend a Genesis Profile 2 (2x75Wrms)
    The Alpine has a 2v preout, so you could use an RCA splitter for both amps without loosing sound quality.

    Is it not more than that, i was thinking of the £1200 quid one. I have heard diamond speakers and think they are very crisp, but i only listen to rap really and want the vocals to be clear and the subs to hanlde the rest.............
