Diamond Audio 6.5" Coaxils. Great quality and handle good amount of power.

First off, what does the rest of your system comprise of?

Second, are you wanting SQ or SPL?

Third, what kind of music do you listen to?

Deja i have 2 12's right now in a sealed box they will be going in a vented box sometime either this week or next tuned to 35hz they are pioneer's dvc ts-w306 sub's ran off a digital audio monoblock dab1800x amp and the hu is a pioneer deh-4800mp. I listen to alot of rap sometimes techno and rock though. im mostly wanting a mixture really of spl/sq for the rear deck but probably more spl that way it could keep up with my sub's:).

Just a few more questions....

Ever thought of some Pioneer REV 6x9's or 6.5" coaxs for the rear? What kind of speakers are you running up front and what are they powered with? What kind of vehicle is this?

Agreed. And if money is tight right now, I'd recommend you figure out what you really need that'll make a bigger difference in the way your system performs and save up cash bud.

From the info I've gathered, you might want to target the following first:
1. Amp for front comps.
2. Maybe new front comps eventually.

In the neighborhood of $300 (or less depending on what deals you find here and elsewhere on the net) you'll be able to have a very decent front comps and amp setup.

That's exactly what I was trying to say. The Type S's aren't exactly crappy by any means, and they only get better with more power. I think an amp for them will do you the best good right now. ;)

Yeah after i build my new box im going to save up for an amp for them for sure what would be a good amp to power them with but cheap probably cheap as you could go?

Look at Hifonics, Crunch Ground Pounder series, and Profile amps...they all pretty much do near what they are advertised at.

Pioneer would be decent on a budget.

If you can find a Xenon X100.2 (check different forums and eBay), don't hesitate.

I'd recommend getting something rated at 100WPC RMS and adjusting the gain appropriately for those Type S's.
