I originally thought there was a 5 channel amp out there that would be able to run it. But when I talked to a salesman, he said that the 5th channel is only for subwoofers, and that I would need two 4 channel amps - one to run the inside 4 speaker system, and the other amp solely for the external speaker.
Does anyone have a set up like this? Trying to figure out what kind andd how many amps I need first.
You can use the 5th channel to run your external speaker. Just don't get a 5 channel amp that has a crossover or you will be filtering out the high notes
Or use a 4 channel and a single channel amp for the external speaker
