im not sure yet i thought id see what speakers first then choose my amp for them. Im building the system in stages right now im buying the alpine deck and processor then im going to save for the front stage and amps. then rear fill and subs. the rear fill is for whatching a movie.
You can go fully active up front. Or you can go passive.
If you go fully active up front then you lose the 5.1 control that processor can do.
I guess you need to decide what's most important for you. Complete control over your front stage. Or the ability to have Surround for DVD movies.
You might be able to go 2 way active up front and still have surround, but I'm not sure, I'll look into that for you.
Up to you though to see what's more important. Also for your 3 way setup, should you choose to go that way, Toyota was nice enough to give you stock mounting locations for a 4" Midrange in the dash. Lucky. (I'm jealous)
Tis true, but if you're willing to learn beforehand, you'll be alright All it is is setting the right crossover points. Most passive 3 way systems are over 500 bucks though. If you go fully active you can save money on speakers, although you do need 6 channels of amplification, plus a sub amp.
