you shouldnt need an amp mate, your speakers should sound okay upto 3/4 of the volume control. If it doesnt you should try adjusting the bass as you may have this set to high. They may be able to handle the bass at a low volume but at a high they will begin to disstort. You need to decide if you want loud crisp sound or low bass sound. As for a sub this will just cover up the distortion you are getting from your speakers not cure the problem. Sub would be gud but i would sort the speakers out first.

it probably won't do the job, if the speakers are distorting running off the headunit, then giving them more power will make them distort more,

what kind of distortion are you getting?

Problems lie within the cables or the speaker quality,or ur standards are too high and u think u can get massive volume out of a head unit and cheap speakers. my alpine head unit sounds fabulous up to about 23 out of 35 and thats theu alpine R components. Bass is enough to FEEL.

I recomend
a)changing speaker cable to proper stuff
b)changing to better speakers
c)adding a sub to deal with the bass and reducing bass thru the speakers as they shud be able to cope with the mid range at high volumes

I'd definately change the speaker cable anyway. 21 and above on the HU is probably starting to reach the output device's limits, so amping the speakers will give you more 'headroom' and less distortion.

also when u get the subs in u can just have the subs to run the lower bass lines and the rest of the speakers will drive the mid and high sounds. this is how i run my set up i can get the volume up 2 nearly full b 4 the sub starts to distort and the rest of the speakers go all the way up because they arnt trying to hit notes they can never achive

ste, your music all boils down to one simple thing - cost. your music is as good as your stereo, speakers, cable and amps. so as all of the guys above say upgrade upgrade and upgrade.

any News on this steve,has the sub made life easier (reduce the bass settings on ur headunit to reduce distortion,then whack ur "SUB+" setting up,and then adjust amp to taste)
