I was looking at either the 5433 or the 8443.
I heard the 8443 doesn't really have a true 8V output on it though.
So, if I have to bypass the factory amp for the install, should I get an aftermarket amp to replace it?
the eclipse training I attended this year they had the volt meters on 3 of their models...
the and they produced just what they listed...8 volt with 55ohm impedance.
if you bypass the amp that means you will run power from the head unit to the speakers direct...
schosche I think it's spelled makes a harness that uses the the rca preamp on your headunit and you can use te factory amp.
also upgrading to an aftermarket amp will provide you with sound that is louders and cleaner than what your stereo ever sounded.
if you need any help on a one on one basis feel free to IM me.
