You want the bass to musically blend and be well-balanced with the rest of your system, so, here's a good rule-of-thumb guide to sub power: If you're using your car's factory stereo — 50 to 200 watts RMS of power for the bass will do nicely. An aftermarket receiver — you might want 200 to 300 watts RMS of power for your sub. Amplified speakers with around 50 watts RMS per channel — plan on 250 to 500 watts RMS for bass. A 100 watts RMS or higher per channel system — you'll want at least 1,000 watts RMS for your sub.
And for those, um, "directionally challenged" individuals amongst us? End the "should we stop to ask for directions?" debate by installing a GPS navigation system in your car. Just enter your destination into the trip computer and follow the voice prompts and visual directions. You can also see points of interest and updated traffic information. Most in-dash display monitors are also compatible with easy-to-install rear view cameras, which will help the "spatially challenged" avoid backing into lampposts, garage walls, and other cars..
Many people like their music with a strong front stage and don't even use rear speakers. A 2-channel amplifier will be the practical solution when you only need to power a single pair of speakers. But if you like rear-fill sound in your car and want to retain front-to-rear fade control, get a 4-channel amp — one channel for each speaker.
Born for bad sound. Some cars are doomed to poor sound by virtue of their design. The Jeep Wrangler, for example, can ford mighty rivers and climb tall mountains, but its combination of small speakers and a noisy environment makes for a less than ideal listening experience. Now, you can buy heavy-duty plastic speaker pods that install in various spots in the Wrangler interior, housing a set of your favorite speakers or a small sub.
