    I have a Pioneer Premier F90BT head unit. I want to replace some Infinity speakers and an old Sony amp. What do you guys think of this setup:

    Front 5.25 Components:
    I was told by another forum that these are really good speakers. They are actually rebranded a/d/s speakers:

    Rear 6.5" Coax under the read deck:

    5 channel amp:
    Its a small amp which is good but the SNR is really low on it (this will also power 2-10" Orion Subs)

    Thoughts?

    i've never listen to PPI speakers, but i like their amps. just wondering, can you go bigger than 5.25? i would get 6.5 instead.

    im running the PDX 5 in my car right now and its a good. it should be fine for your setup.

    those comps aren't really rebranded ads. DEI now makes a/d/s and ppi, so they'll have some similarites. it's kinda like pontiac or buick (ppi) to cadillac (a/d/s).

    Not everyone needs to have 1000 watts pushing their subs. Sometimes they just want a little bump. Nothing to shake the car, but enough to complement the music.

    did I say everyone needs a 1000w. I said the sub channel is a little weak, which it is.
