ive been putting it off and putting it off for around a month or so now, but i finally decided that after getting my new explorer its time for some speaky's for it,

substage will be either 2- 15 brahmas, or 4 - 12 187's, whichever i prefer.:)

head unit is a alpine 9855.

i have 300-400 for components, and then whatever it costs for the amp.(need suggestions on an amp too)


i dont really know much about components, since they were already all setup in my last vehicle. I'd really like to make sure i do this setup correctly, cuz im really missing any midbass/front stage.


things ive been looking @...

Diamond Hex's
boston pro 60's
rainblow SLC's
Seas Lotus ref's.

Orion P6.2 at online car stereo if they still have them... 6mm xmax, high power handling, 3 ohm... should **** up lots of power and get loud enough to keep up. Lighter on the wallet also.

PPi DCX-650S might be a little better if you can find them... they have similar specs and tweeter, better mid.

pro60's or some rainbow germaniums would fit right at home, maybe powerline cmx if u dont wanna spend 450 on the germs the cmx would be around 300 like the pro60's

Amp suggestions JL-300/4 for pro 6's bridged, uhhh look at phoneix gold amps lots of power for cheap, i mean like 200 x 2 @ 4 ohs for like 139 on woofersetc.com

I say run the pros out of the ones mentioned. You also may want to consider the polk sig ref series.
