Are they worth using still? How can I find out the info on the subs (watts, etc.) ?

I'm spamming my own thread, apologies. But somebody else just told me they take about 50-150 RMS. Would I be able to run these and component speakers off the same amp?

If you get a four channel, you could run your comps or coaxial speakers off the front channels, and use the rear channels to run the subs.

So yes you could.

As for finding specs on those rockfords, look on the backside of them and find a model number.

Alright so after all of my questions and after all of your guys' help, this is my proposal.

HU: My brother has the same Pioneer Premier 50x4 HU as I do, so we are going to switch so I have both pre-amp outputs.

Front Speakers: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/NEW-ALPINE-6x8-600-WATT-2-WAY-CAR-STEREO-SPEAKERS-5x7_W0QQcmdZViewItemQQcategoryZ38646QQihZ018QQitemZ280214150715QQrdZ1QQsspagenameZWDVW

I figured since I now have subs that I wasn't planning on having that I could save myself money on the speakers.

Amp: http://www.onlinecarstereo.com/CarAudio/ProductDetail.aspx?ProductID=16413

Subs: The old rockfords which supposebly run between 50-150 RMS.

Does anybody see any problems with this?

Looks good, however you should find out the model number on those subs so you can figure out the VC configuration. Probably a single 4 if I had to guess.

I would guess single 8. which you should hope is the case so that they better match your amp when you bridge it.

All I can find is a serial number. I'll have somebody look at them today. Is that amp going to be big enough?

I wrote to Rockford and this was the answer I got
"Thanks for contacting us. Each woofer is 4 ohms, the recommended RMS power is 100 watts each. Those specific woofers were included with the BTR enclosures, they would be equivalent to the 1999 model RFZ1408's."

Is there any other info I should ask for?
