hey guys i have 4 10jlw6 a ppi1500x1 and a ppi1000x4, tuned way down for highs, i need some new decent comps for the front i can house up to a 6x9 but would rather go with like a 61/4 or 61/2 comp for the front doors and maybe a 51/4 comp for the rears any suggestions, moneys not that tight but i don really want to spend over 250 ish a pair any suggestions would be greatly appreciated thanks

I think most people (including myself) would suggest you put the majority of the budget toward the front speakers, and get some coaxials for the rear. And run the rears off the HU.

i already have a 4 channel amp i can probably go with what i have in my front doors as the new rears i have pioneer 4 ways in the front right now, they are 5 1/4 so theyd fit the rear what do u think about components for the front

don't even bother with rear speakers. just get a comp set up front. if you must have rear fill, some $50 coaxils will work. no need for comps in the rear. with that said i would bridge that amp and go for a set of boston acoustic pros.

I have a pair of speakers that might be coming up for sale soon ;) Would make perfect rear fill.

should i deaden my doors even though i dont need the bass that much from my comps cause the subs play fine bass in mid and low, or should i just throw a layer in there to help reduce rattle and noise?

Sound deadening will help your front stage immensely...trust me, I can't wait until I get around to deadening mine properly.

yes deaden your door. help to improve midbass. also how many watts and was your door deadened when you had the pros? what didn't you like about them so we can help you find something you'll like more?

i had the pros with no deadening and i think that my intaller had messed up my comps when they put thrm in and didnt want to live up to it but for the money i can get mbquars should i just go that route

sound deadening will make a world of difference no matter what set you go with. the quarts get mixed reviews. the local shop started selling quarts and i didn't like the tweets on them. too harsh imo, but this was in a sound board. comps i have used that i liked were DLS, CDT, and boston acoustics.

that's the names of the companies ;) www.cdtaudio.com look into the HD's. you might want to talk to djdilliodon on aim as he is an authorized cdt dealer and has great prices. also dls makes nice components. www.dls.se

don't go by the prices on there site. like i said talk to don or www.thezeb.com sells them. a set of EF's go for about $200 i do believe. HD's might be over $300

the zrb doesnt have any comps from cdt besides the ones for 400 ugh this is so frustrating i got all the bass i could want but my vocals slackin big time what about like diamond audio and such names like that all these names seem to be so hard to find and pricey when i do, i dont mean to sound rude like i can go to bizrate and put in boston acoustics and compare prices these things are hella hard to even find, lol

diamond HEX are pretty nice but probably out of your price range. www.woofersetc.com also sells cdt but is unauthorized. djdilliodon though has the best prices. he usually has some specials on www.caraudioforum.com

the rainbow soundlines max out at 80 watts according to speedsound.com and they go for 290 does this sound right, they also look to be an older style than on the rainbow website

Then i would say it is a good deal since i think the HDs are around 400ish right?
