Ok will try 35 and 40hz

In my experience the key to the MS-8 based systems is balanced power. If you are going to do a 5 channel amp for trunk, under seats and center, that is one thing (you could even do a 4 channel with an efficient 2ohm sub), but if you are going to buy a separate sub amp, I would keep MS-8 power on all the other speakers unless you know for a fact you need more power. once you start powering some channels and not others you are in an upward spiral on price.
I have already got a dls a6 mono amp for the sub, which i really want to use. From what u are saying i will add this and keep the same power on the rest of the system. Then see how it sounds. But say if i wanted to add a component set (eg focals). Would this definately have to be amped to sound better than OEM mids, or can i leave them on MS-8 power? Will it be worth it to get such expensive components if they are going to be kept on ms-8 power? Maybe get 2ohm ones?
