    The 4 channel is 80 total and the sub is 60 mono. The speakers, if the are the two ways, can handle up to 80 max, 40 rms.

    You are better off replacing the whole thing or buying aftermarket. I used an aftermarket sub with the system for a while, sounded ok, but the factory head unit has a problem with losing the front right channel. So I bought a Pioneer head unit (cheap one) and it sounded a little better, but the freq response from the Pioneer was not (seemingly) as wide as the factory head unit. So I went to an a/m amp with an eq, that helped but nowe there is static.

    It will al be scraped at some point in the near future for something undoubtedly a bit more expensive, with lower thd and a higher s to n ratio etc. Some component two ways, with a better sub, in a box this time.

    Live an learn. Spend the money now, or you will end up spending more later.

    Good luck.

    Static: Try turning down the high frequency gain on the EQ circuit.

    What is the full term for an a/m amp?

    The full term is aftermarket amplifier. In any case, the amp is a CHEAP one from some no name company. The static is inherent with the product. Turning the high freq gain down results in a muffled (like talking through a pillow) sound for anything at or higher than midrange.

    Simply, like I said above; Spend the money the first time around for a good head unit and amplifier, and as a result of spensing good money, get good speakers, then, you will get a good sound quality. Sure, mine gets loud, but who cares when it sounds like crap.

    I am an old man (40) and I prefer quality to quanity, but I scrimped and am paying for it now. I don't even turn the thing on some days because it bothers me so much. Live and learn.......
