Just bought a 2006 Dodge Ram sport reg cab and the factory stuff has to go. Amps will be UsAmps Xterminator Xt800.2 (100x2) for the comps and the 800w mono model for the sub.

doors can fit a 6.5-7" driver and i will be deadening them as well. I want soft dome tweets for sure and depth up to about 3.25" is ok. looking at OZ Matrix Elites although the crossover is quite large. Anybody got any other suggestions, i'm open to diy stuff and i could easily get a 4 channel amp instead of the 2 channel.

Budget is $300

I myself am going with a set of Rainbow Germs, same 6.5 up front although they are above your range of $300, there is always the SLC's...which I believe are around what your looking to pay....

i kinda wouldn't mind something i could mount coaxially like the id chameleon's but i've heard there have been issues with the mids at times.

I don't necesarily disagree ...I heard they really require a lot of juice to make them sound off..

X2 on the SLC's...right around $250. PM 6spdcoupe.


BTW the SLC's have a 'kickbass' version

so you guys think the slc's are better than the matrix elites? i've never heard either and there are no dealers close to me for either set. if it helps the mids will be mounted IB in a large door.

Tough call, but I think Id still go with the Germs. Specifically due to their extremely flexible/biampable crossovers, not to mention the newly redisgned CAL25 tweets.

Joe, I thought I read in another thread you PMed me, but I didnt see it..

i would get the seas reference tweets and basically maybe either the lotus performance mids and or seas ca18rnx, peerless exclusives, or even my ca18rly ;). i ran the lotus ref tweets w/ both the ca18rly and seas lotus performance mids and have to say i was very happy with both of them. you can probably get the lotus performance mids and lotus tweets for something about $380 shipped or so from mobilesq or you can buy my ca18rly's mids for $90 shipped :D.
