Okay, before anything, I've searched the forums, with no luck!
I'm doing this incrementally and retaining the stock look as much...I've swapped out the HK speakers for focals, and the sub for a pioneer... and the improvement is substantial, clearer.

Next step is to clean up the SQ a bit, so i'm thinking to add my rockford fosgate 360.2 (its been in the garage for 7 months) and maybe a power amp to give the sound more umph.
Question is.. guys, are there any power amps compatible with the high-line HK??? and where does the 360 fit? On the inputs before the amp right?? Any comments welcome! Thanks!

Ahh! the forum for deaf audio geeks is next door. We're busy here with squeaks and gremlins, so if you don't mind? Should you need any advice on driving at 200 KMH in access mode check with us again. Then we'll send you to the Honda CR, XR, ..whatever the f#$% forum.
Just kiddin' BRA! :D, haven't busted balls in a while!

Was there an issue using a Pioneer Sub and focals with the different ohm rating. I believe the HK run at 1 or 2 ohms and the better speakers around 4ohms. Did you have to re do the wiring. You may be putting a strain on the amp - not sure of the electrical complications. Was told there would be a need to re do the wiring to bring the make this work correctly.

Have you looked at a Treo, there have a device called the cube I think. This will allow you to use the HK amp to maintain the functionality to power your all your speakers and sound control , and add another amp for your sub. Currently the bass is limited to the sub. So with the Cube, you can control the amount of bass to it as well.

hmm Rafa... watch it "bra"... I havent busted balls in a while either 8)

Hey thanks Frisco, that sounds very intresting. The focals run on 4 ohms which is definitly better than HK 2ohm speakers. But I dont think they're singing at thier best due to the power deficiency. The HK amp ouputs 5 X 50W I was reading that there may be switches or dips on the Highline HK amp to redistribute the power??? The pioneer sub is ok as I've cancelled the Bass channel drawing too much power by running a separate bass amp for it.

Do you have any links to the treo cube??

Anyone used the rockford fosgate 360.2 with the HK highline amp?

I had focal utopias in my last car (had a full blown sq system), and they are awesome speakers. However, focals are power hungry. Aren't you only feeding them 25watts/channel with the stock amp since it outputs 50w @ 2ohms? You definitely aren't enjoying those speakers nearly at their potential.

As for hooking your system up the proper way, look into something like the audiocontrol lc8. I wanted to do a full system a while ago (but settled for just the addition of more bass), and was told that is the right way to go. The audiocontrol module would allow you to plug in separate amps for your speakers and subs, just like a standard aftermarket installation. I don't remember exactly, but I think it gets its inputs directly from the hk amp, and then provides rca outputs for each channel where you would plug into your aftermarket amp.

Also, I would highly recommend you get a better amp to power those focals, and definitely a better sub.

I don't see the cube on their site. Visit one of their dealers, or call them - http://www.treoonline.com

By replacing the wiring with less resistance / thicker wire, this may help correct? The wiring in the RRS may not allow the higher output needed even if you went to a higher amp - again not a electrical engineer, conveying what I was told based on all the options and questions I asked this high-end audio store.
