    My buddy just gave me his old subs, so I decided to do up system.

    Any recomendations to the type of speakers and amp i should invest in?

    those subs are 200rms each i believe..Idealy you'd like something with 400RMS, and its BEST to match that power to highs.

    what kind of car..

    rear speakers are optional..and most of the time, a waste.

    good idea.. the subs would ruin the sound from the back.
    Im going to get a quality pair of front speakers however and a 6 channel amp

    f'ng prices get jacked once you reach the 6 channel eschalon

    well i suppose i could get a mono amp just for the subs

    Either i got sweet talked by the salesman or he is right. It will sounds 10 times better have 2 channels for each sub and then 2 for the front speakers.

    Either that i get a regular mono amp and power the subs, leave the deck to powering the speakers.

    Decisions...

    Incorrect.

    Just get a mono amplifier for the subwoofer, some that is 400-500rms @2ohms.

    Then look into a 2channel amplifier and some nice coaxials for up front.

    Take a look in a Kicker ZX550.3, or check into some Hifonics for inexpensiv amplifiers. Might as well buy new from an ebay store... that'll keep you within your price limit. I'd look into some Pioneer Rev coaxials.

    Do it.

    and not power some new speakers?? its a catch 22

    i'm not going to just have all the power pumping the subs and have a weak system up front
