Smile upgrade stereo

i agree, unless you are out to impress your friends, or, are into competition stereo, amps are just a waste of time, a head unit that gives out 52 watts per channel, is quite adequate, lets be real 52 watts is at 4 ohm, so its realy in old household terms only about 25 watts at 8 ohm, and thats not always RMS, but its still enough to give out a good sound, so long as its a quality head unit, and good speakers, half the folk who have these big amps, dont even look at things like channel seperation, they just want noise, and lots of it, might as well just hook up a megaphone. a good alpine head unit and good quality speakers is all you need, (i have Sony) so i say Alpine with no biase, in a station waggon you hear more road noise than a sedan, and acoustics are not as good,
