Um what I would do if I were you lol is use a car deck as a reciever or see if you could use a home reciever to hook all you crap up too! Idk why you want to hook up a car stereo in your house but w/e lol they do put out more power than house systems I guess gaga but ya I would actually say since it is a car stereo use a car deck since that is what it is made for

deck? lol well i got the amp hooked to my computer and i already made this little switch board so i can switch between my sterio and my computer for playing the crap with my sub......... so i dont really want to use a car radio to run this thing.... the only thing i have troubles with is hooking up extra speakers so i have high freaquency soudns instead of it sounding like a dog turd..

And I should add when you have your car deck, what it does is puts the lows through your subs, mids a low highs through your main speakers and puts highs through your tweeters! That should get rid of the highs going through your subs

but do you get what im saying tho dude? a car deck serves the same purpose as a home receiver! it put the frequencies where it needs to be so you don't blow crap. when you have a aux plug in on a deck you run that directly to your computers stereo or you can get an 8mm to RCA cable adapter for your 360 or however you game and listen to music and such and run it that way

A car deck wont power your subs, thats what amps are for. I guess your best bet your be running a car head unit (deck, stereo, whatever) to power your mids and tweeters and run your amp just for your sub.

did i say that a deck powers you subs? of course not thats why in car stereos you always have 1 amp or 2 for your speakers and then 1 for your subs, a deck just acts as a receiver and directs frequencies

Naw a 4x50 should power a couple door speakers fine, any more than that and a different amp is in order.

Kyle, you said your amp has speaker level inputs right? can u get a pic of the back of it with all the connections? If it does you could get a decent home stereo amp for your normal speakers/tweeters and then have your car amp for your sub. Actually you could probably just run the RCA cables from a home stereo amp right into your sub amp.

thats what i suggested he could do, all im saying is that his sound would be alot cleaner and louder oif he used a second amp, if he got a bigger amp for his sub he could even use the old amp that hes using now to power his speakers
