hey guys..

i have a 2003 gmc denali..

about $1,000 for two component sets and i guess ill only need one amp im not sure.

anyway my question is, i have a G to do my interior speakers, this will need to cover parts and labor. I need it to be as loud as possible and if i need to get more money like 200 more i can do so, but id rather not.

so what should I get?? i plan on putting a w6 in the future so for now im only worrying about my comps and an amp, hhopefully ill only need one.. thanks guys

Question: Why is it important for the componenets and amp to match? just asking

focal, rainbox, dls, diamond, morel, dynaudio all are really nice. And if this is for front and back comps id just go for cheap coaxials such as the revs or something along that line. And there are so many amp choices out their you just need to look.

diamond s600's look good.

question:

from my experience, my rear door speakers looked larger than my front door.. but when i went on crutchfield they said all 4 speakers are 6.75".. can anyone verify the sizs of the speakers in an 03 denali with the bose system..

6.5"s will fit in all the doors. a 5.25 will also work for the rear doors.

that alpine amp is good. look in to somting else besides type r speakers. like the diamonds., etc.

Alpine type X speakers and amp, JL speakers and amp. If it were me I would get comps for the front and coaxial for the rear running off head unit power. Maybe some MB Quarts with a MB amp.

dont get type-r components lol

the 6x9s are ALRIGHT but i would much rather have some pioneer revs

they do what i need tho but they could be much better

Honestly, I'd skip the rear speakers. You barely even hear rear speakers when they are on, they add a bit of fill, but that's it. With a 1000 fronstage, you could get some ******* components. 1 set would be just about as loud as 2 lower end sets, but would sound ALOT better, they may even be able to get louder, since you could use a bigger amp. If you like alpine, I'd get a set of type X's and an alpine pdx2.150. Lots of power for an amazing set of speakers, I really believe
your money would be much better served that way. A w6 is a really nice sounding sub, no reason to ruin your overall sound using cheap components. That would probably be a bit under 1000, if so, you can always deaden your doors, that'll really help give you the midbass required to keep up with the w6, and make your car a bit quieter in the process. All and all, I really do feel this is the best way to spend your money, you don't have to listen to me, but it's a good idea;)

I just swapped my S600 Hex set for a set of Rainbow CMX 265. Without any real tuning, yet I have to say they sound much better. I am giving them 125 rms per side. I am pretty unhappy with the Diamonds, I have had them in less than a year and one of the woofers is already rattling. The midbass was lacking and compared to the new Rainbows they were not very detailed. I was much happier with the M6 set I had before them. I would try and listen to many different brands if you can and see what sounds good to you.

This Rainbow set I got is the CMX 265 here:

If you consider the Rainbows PM 6spdcoupe for some more details about Rainbow.

Good Luck!

If your going to be looking at anything in the Rainbow line do yourself a favor now and pm 6spdcoupe...besides your in Queens so that makes you somewhat local.

You'll like what you hear, but you'll have to discuss pricing with the man himself....enjoy

I had the Diamond s600, I hated them. Had a Zapco 360.4 pushing them, sounded terrible. I got the Boston Acoustics Pro60's, sound hella better. If you got a G to do you fronts, I'd go with the Boston Z6's and an amp that pushes 150rms. IMO.

question: do you recommend that i get two component set-ups and get a 4 channel amp to power only the 6.5"'s and leave the Head Unit to power the tweeters??

Hintzyboy
12-19-2006, 05:12 PM
Hell no. Just goe with a set of nice comps up front, and put some coaxs on HU power for the rear. Hell, with a decent amp, you could probably put it all on amped power.

i went to my radio shop:

rear- 6.5" JL coaxes
front doors- 5.5" JL comp set
front kick panels- 6.5" JL comp set
AMPlifier- 400/4 JL

total $1,800 for parts and labor.

what do ya'll think??

Hintzyboy
12-19-2006, 06:58 PM
you definitely don't need 2 comp sets in the front

Hintzyboy
12-19-2006, 06:58 PM
And there are better brands out there for the money

which JL sets were they? Regardless, you don't need that many front speakers.

Buy from 6spd and they don't have to be Rainbows. He sells many highend brands. If I was out there I would go see him in person. Obviously Ive never seen his shop but if he has differant comps to listen to I would go. Don't rush into it. I've been looking for months now and you will discover new brands you never heard of before. With the money you got you can get a kick *** system.

i personally think having kick panels would just be ridiculous, i mean two comp sets in the front is nuts. i like the idea. I plan on putting in two w7's in a few months so i want to prep my interiors so its ready for the w7's. anyway i PMed 6sdp and he hasnt responded yet. id def want to go to his shop..
