    Quick question guys! Plz quick answer very busy atm.

    I have now almost finished buying the equiptment needed to fit new system to my car,

    JBL 4060 amp
    JBL 1000w Sub
    JBL Components

    I cant really afford much more but do u think my coponents will sound just as good in my head unit as an amp as they are only 55rms and my headunit has 4x 50rms. Saves me getting a specific amp for my sub and then using the JBL 4060 for speakers then.

    My apline is the new ipod ready 200 quid one.


    U need any more info plz ask im hoping for a quickish answer as i am a busy man at thte moment.

    Thanks
    Regards
    Alex

    they'll sound better than standard. although you sure the headunit is 50 watt RMS?? sounds huge for a headunit! got a model number for the headunit? plus i dont think that amp will run a sub very well, it'll only bridge down to 2 channels at 150w rms (can only you one channel for that sub), where as you sub will take 250w rms. dont get me wrong, it'll run it, just not getting the best out of either pieces of equipment. I personally would recommend using the 4 channel amp to run the components and then purchasing the JBL GTO 301.1 amplifier. i had this running 2 of those subs quite nicely, its pushes 204w rms so will easily cope with your sub. just my opinion of course.

    your headunit is 50W x 4 max, not rms, your always better of amping components, look at what the head unit has to do and how small it is compared to an amp!

    Ok well il go back to my old plan now then.

    So how about a monoblock for the sub and the JBL 4060 for the components, then at a later date maybe add another set of components to the amp.

    Any recommendatioins for monoblocks budget 150 quid. Cheerz
