View Full Version : Coaxial? Component? Brand? I need help...

08-25-2006, 02:53 PM
I'm in a '99 Ford Ranger, and this is what sizes I can use:

5 1/4
6 x 8

Right now, they are stock (which is coaxial, right?). I'm wanting to go kind of cheap, maybe like $60 a pair or so. Also, I have mids in both doors, and mids in the rear. Do I even need to change my rear mids (I was told those are really just "backup" anyway). I don't need anything fancy, but I want something better than stock.

What should I be looking for though? I don't really know who makes good ones O.o

Also, I need coaxial right? Component would mean I'd have to rewire?

I was looking at those, and they'll be run from an amp (but it's already been wired from the previous guy who installed stuff).

What's better the MB Quart DKE-113 or the Alpine SPS-13C2? It's gonna be out of those two I guess.

I don't have an amp yet. It's all set up for a 4ch amp though (old setup was 1 sub bridged and then left mids and right mids each had a channel). For convience, I'd like to keep it that way (I don't want to have to run cable, I just want to get new stuff and plug it in).

Here's the sub I'm getting:
It's the Xtec 10" on the right

So I need an amp that can do 150w on 4 chan right?

As of now, I'm still completely open to any suggestions. Oh yea, I also have 8 guage wire, is that enough?

Say I got that amp. When I bridged 2 ch together, it'd give me 350w to the sub (I'm fairly certain it can take a bit more than that, actually), but would it be at 2-ohm or something? I don't really know how all of this works. What does it mean if my sub get's 350w @ 2-ohm instead of 350 @ 4-ohm? Will it even matter?

Sorry, just ignore me...

Any suggestions for an amp though? Preferably under $150ish.
