Default how will these parts sound ?

For an amp i am getting a 960 w soundstream 4 channel. for the speakers front and rear i am getting alpine type r`s. And for the head unit i am going with a an alpine CDA-9856. i think it should sound pretty good.

whats the specs on the soundstream? And you cant go wrong with alpine, you just have to worry about over powering those speakers with a 960watt amp.... based on the wattage i would guess 120watt x4 at 4ohm but spec's would be needed, and i dont know too much about the brand in general

So long as the install is clean, you can't overpower speakers.... In thoery, you could put a million watts of pure clean signal through a speaker. however, the first teeniest bit of signal noise or interference will send your speaker into a million pieces.

However, this is in an ideal world. Cars have interference and noise. So, make sure the install is uber clean.

Also, are you going to bridge two channels for a sub? and run the other two channels for your mid-high freq. speakers?

Regards. I don't normally comment on particular brands, as the manufacturing changes, and the sound is subjective. However, there are a few exceptions.... Jensen is a crappy brand, and high-end Oz are amazing speakers!

hehe, you have to keep in mind, theory is never practical, thats why i mentioned over powering being bad, but you will never find a perfect audio signal with a car stereo, let alone any other stereo, and this is also ignoring groups that intentional distort their music.

Soundstream TRA960.4 amp



yea by the numbers this amp seems like overkill to the alpine type r`s which

have an rms of 55 watts and a max 275 watts. I heard the sound is much better

with a high powered amp like this. as of now i am not planning to bridge the

channels for subs but, that may be a possibility with this amp. Is the extra power

just overkill or will it make the music sound better? thanks

You most likely want to have the level at 1/2 to 2/3rds but youll tune it by ear anyways but it should sound good i hope the rear speakers are good freeair's tho, not sure how those actually perform
