Hey guys.

Interested in upgrading the audio system in my 2008 BF Ford Falcon and need some help with a few things.

Im currently going for a 5 speaker system:
- 2 front, possibly splits or 3 way
- 2 rear, 3 or 4 way
- 1 subwoofer

I'm liking the sound and cost of pioneer speakers and it seems JB HiFi is doing a good sale on them.

I have a few questions since I want to use the stock stereo since I dont want to add an aftermarket stereo:
- will audio quality be good if I use amps to improve power.
- what is the best way to wire up the remote wire, keeping in kind I am a noob to car audio and dont want to go over price on install.
- is jb hifi install good? Any places you can recommend that are cheap?
- will I need a sub with good back speakers. I want some bass but dont want to be a doof doof faggot.

speaker list all pioneer:
- 1200w sub and 400w amp (combo deal)
- 3 way 3x9 400w back
- 3 way 6" 300w front
- 760w 4 way amp

Thanks for the help!

I had a lot of engine interference when I used the factory headunit with an aftermarket amp.
Remote wire is usually connected from a power source that turns on when the key hits accessories. Easiest way is to get a test light and look for a 4 socket plug above the pedals, and see which terminal switches on and off when you flick the key.
Jb hifi would do that automatically on an install.
