    Hows that for a title?
    I have some older MB Quart comps for the front, and some Mercury Hi-Fonics for the rear (Coax), and a 12" sub for the rear. I have a 4 channel amp now, and it has enough power to push that sub with 2 channels bridged. Will it be enough in an access cab to only power the front speakers, and just do the rear off the head unit? I could save up, get a mono amp, and run it that way as well... I would have to fight my wife though, since she says I've spent enough on the system for now! lol
    Oh yeah, I have a Kenwood Excelon head unit.

    Sorry if this as been posted before... I could not find it with the search!
    Thanks for any help!

    Skip the rears, run the fronts and sub off of the amp. IF you need more rear fill, then run the rears off the HU. Quality before quantity :)

    Agreed.

    I only run front speakers. I run my components off the front channels and the sub off the back channels bridged.
