Actually I only want one single component set for front doors and an amp to push them. I want components that will be too loud to turn the volume up all the way and be able to listen to it ( i want them to scream!) please suggest something for me! thanks!!

6-3/4 my doors can fit. I would imagine $600 would allow me enough for what i want am i right?

because most will tell you to search. There are many choices out there. Coax don't spend more than 100$, the components look to about 300-350$ and the rest used on an amp. If you are interested in CDT products just PM me and i'll help you out.

I did search. I see alot of nice components. I never heard them though thats why i was asking you guys which would scream (i wouldnt be able to turn them all the way up and listen to them they would be TOO loud) and would still be clear. refer me to any descent pair that will acomplish what i want+ an amp to push em and i will be a happy camper xD!

Boston Acoustics comps will get very loud and stay clear. I just put in a set of the SL series comps for a friend with 100 watts per channel from an old PPI amp. They sounded awesome. The Pro and Z series from Boston would be loud too. Just depends what you want to spend on speakers.

Look at the Boston Pro 60s. Very nice comps. The Zs don't offer much of an upgrade for the difference in price. For LOUD comps, look into something like some DD LT6s and maybe some ID horns. I don't know how much that set up would run you, but it would definitely get loud for you. You might also look into a 3-way set. It allows you to spread the frequency band out overmore speakers, allowing you to turn it up more without distortion.

How are the MB Quart QSC 216 in sql and how loud are they? I'm considering these because my car is weird with which speakers will fit.

MB Quarts are decent, but most people on here think that the tweeters are too harsh. I'd try to listen to some befoe you think about buying.

the pro's are very nice, i've had a LOT of experience with them. i've also owned the Z's, and had a LOT of experience with those as well. but if you honestly can't hear the difference between the two, you need to take another listen to some setups that are set up right, not a display board. to get the Z's to sound right, they take a bit of tweaking. speakers on a demo board are just thrown up there 9 times out of 10 just to 'have' them on display. but once you get them right, the difference is night and day. the Z's are MUCH fuller, have a lot stronger midbass presence, smoother midrange, and much smoother tweets. the more advanced AMD in the Z's makes a big difference in tweeter response. at low volumes, the Z's still sound warmer but it's not a $400 difference. BUT... once you start cranking it, the Z's pull away from the pro's like no other. at high volume levels, the Z's keep crankin it out with great extension and linearity, while the pro's start to break down and lose some of that linearity and begin to 'hollow out' for lack of a better term.

take another listen to the Z's set up right... you will change your opinion rather quickly ;) i originally had a set of the SL60's, and they are a great sounding speaker. but i went from a set of SL60's to the Z6's and the Z's made the SL's sound like worn out paper crap OEM speakers. huge difference, and that was before i bi-amped the Z's.

$50 over budget but that is a high quality setup that will scream.

I've heard just the opposite from other people who have owned both sets. They were also very reputable forum member here. The Z is an out dated design, and actually LACKS in the midbass department from what I hear. That's why Boston engineered something into their amps to increase midbass response. I have heard it from a number of members here that I trust that the Pro60s are actually BETTER than the Z6s if set up right. Now I'm sure when Boston puts out some new Zs, the difference will def. be noticable, and will probably be worth the upgrade. No offense, but I think I'd rather take the word of the guys with around 20,000 posts that have told me something different than the guy with >200.

JL products are way overpriced. There are much better options for the money.

Amp: $250 http://www.woofersetc.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=product.display&Product_ID=3807

Comps: $300 http://www.woofersetc.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=product.display&Product_ID=5091

Coaxs: $100 http://www.woofersetc.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=product.display&Product_ID=1015

Total Price: $650. Plus, the cones on the CDTs match the cones on the REVS nicely, so it will look more like a matching set;) . And it leaves you with money leftover for a battery upgrade and wiring.

I find the CDT components **** compared to the JLs. I have actually owned both and I can say without a doubt I will never buy CDT again. Hop off the internet bandwagon and listen to a weel setup JL system. They cost more because they offer you more. JL has more money for R&D than CDT probably makes all year.

What CDT set did you own? JLs cost more because they are better known. Not saying that the JLs are bad, I just think that there are better options for the money.

I had the CDT HDs. They weren't bad or anything but the XRs sounded way better and my current ZRs annihilate them.
