Keep the amp 6 for the speakers and get a carstereo amp with built in active crossover for the sub.

Thats the easy way .

Since were in the tube forum i insist on it being a tube powered car stereo .

Despite my lack of knowledge on this area i'm still up for a challenge - I'm not sure if the easiest way is the right way, always A middle way should be possible anyhow, or?

My goal is still to play louder and/or improve the sound quality compared to be system as it is now

A setup with e.i; Sure TDA7492 Class D amp -> XTC Crossover -> AMP6.

Am I just living up to the name of a newbie, or could this work as a "middle way solution"?

Sure:

XTC Crossover:

If you use an active crossover the 25w will be enough for mid/high.

Its in the subwoofer you need the muscles.

Get a mono amp for the sub.

I think that if you ask around in the solid state forum they can give you some good buying advice for most bang for the buck.

Wicked. Thanks for your help... I know this is a tubes forum, but one last question and i'll leave you alone How many watts should i go for, for the mono amp? - Could 40W do the trick or should it be more?

Thanks again for your help..

The power needed depends on the woofer.

But something around 100w perhaps if you ran out of power with the setup you have now.

Youre very welcome to hang around here but the right subject in the right area makes it easier for other to follow and the "pros" on the subject will find it and help you faster .
