Yeah, with a bit of creativity, you can probably make a 6x8 baffle that'll hold a 6.5 inch woofer and maybe the tweeter (depending on the driver and so on).

There's been a dozen $200 component threads posted lately. As for an amp, Sounddomain is selling Clarion amps real cheap. Millionbuy is clearing out Phoenix Gold Octanes cheap as well. Either should fit the bill nicely.

Ah, the ubiquitous CDT...Well, before you go down that road, lemme suggest some other stuff. I'm going to have to put this on a macro, these $200 comp posts are getting repetitive.

Copy/pasting from another post of mine:

This subject comes up often.

I'll take a selection from one of my previous posts:

Wow, nobody pitching CDT yet. I'm shocked.

Anyway, here's a small sampling. There are others:

You might also want to look into Exile's XP components. The a/d/s 3-series have been selling real cheap on e-Bay and are nice. Sounddomain still has some 5 1/4 3- and 2-series available (Sounddomain is an authorized dealer).

Looks like I will be the first to say CDT has some very good stuff for the money. You really cannot go wrong with anything they offer. The EF line will impress most and is really good competition for anything in their price range.
