im looking to get a new 6.5 comp set for around 300, i been looking at the boston/mb quart/jl comp sets(300lish ones ), really cant decide which one would be better, so if anyone have some suggestions it will be appriaciated

also im looking for some 6x9s from those 3 brand just so if i get someone in the back seat, perfectly same power handleing as the front so i can use a 4 channel amp. thx

well i would not get 6x9, instead i would get a cheap set coaxials for the rear fill. also you should just get a two channel amp to run your components and use your HU power to run the coaxes. that might save you some money or possibly upgrade your component budget. for about $300, you can get yourself the DLS UP6. solid set or maybe the Rainbow SLC's.

thats true but most do. but if he doesn't have an HU that has an internal amp then yea if he wants a rear fill then year get a four channel amp.

with this install, I've given up on rear fill. The front stage has plenty of sound for anyone sitting in the back seats.

So are we talking $300 new-authorized, new-unauthorized, used??

The brands you have mentioned will all fit the bill nicely, but they are all different speakers. What have your ears liked so far? For example, the Alpine type x comps are well thought of and were a serious contender for me until I actually listened to them :(
