I'm looking to buy aftermarket speakers and amplifier for the front of my golf after christmas and just wondered how many channels will I need and what sort of power should I be looking for the tweeters and mid range apeakers.

I think I'm right in saying that a 2 channel amp would do all four but would it be better if all speakers had their own channel?

thanks

thats a good guide but I'm still confused on the 2/4 channel business. So a 2 channel will power 1 pair of speakers, so does a pair consist only of 2 mid/bass speakers in the doors or does it also include the tweeters?

A two channel amp will drive four speakers but you won't have front/rear fade.A pair of speakers in this case could be two coaxials (twteeters built in) or a pair of midbass + tweeters + crossovers.

If you read the guides thoroughly it's all explained in great detail,but you really don't need amped and uprated rear speakers.If you've set yourself a particular budget then put more towards the front end of the car and the sub if you're thinking of getting one.

Either a two channel for the front and a monoblock for the sub,or a powerful four channel for the fronts AND the sub.

quick update, just installed a new headunit and the OEM speakers sound a lot better so for the moment I'm happy with what I got.
