View Full Version : Looking for Ideas

04-24-2007, 09:25 PM
Well I just bought a 96 caprice and need to decide on mids/highs. I want to build my own 6.5 component set. I will need 4 6.5 drivers, and some nice tweets. I will build my own crossover. I am looking for something that has darn good output and decent sq. Was looking at SELENIUM 6W4P. I haven't even looked at tweeters yet. Anyone tried anything else that they liked alot? Recommendations?

Edited to prevent flames ;)

What is your budget and how much are you going to run? Why do you want 4 6.5's? Are you running front stage only? Why not go with a 3 way component set? tweets, 4" mids and 6.5"

4 drs- 4 6.5s (stock, is 4x5, but 6.5 is easily done with a spacer), rear stage 2- 6x9s. I will be adding subs in the future but, I want some tunes first, then a 383 stroker, then subs. Budget is as cheap as possible as always, but I was considering $500 or so.

How much are you worried about sound for other people in the car? If it were me I would say forget it and only run a front stage. This gives you a better sound IMO. You would be able to run a really nice set of component 6.5" and an amp. I found a phoenix gold amp that puts out 125x2rms at 4ohms.

The amp is 90$ here.

You could run a lot of different set of components I really like the quality I have got with cdt sets. For around 220$ you can get a set that would run really well off 125x2. I have a setup in my truck which has 75x4 and i really wish i just had a rear fill with the 150x2 to the front speakers.

i'll go wit a set of comps in the front(focal,rainbow,cdt,polk)any of these should work. coxials would be the same brand for the rear door and for 6x9s, i'll try to find some 4 ways. this probaly will eliminate trying to buy extra tweeters. pretty much any good brand name amp 75x4 @4 ohm should do good for frontstage and if u run the 4 speakers off the other channel @ 2 ohms, maybe 200 watts,but it will be good enough. somebody help me and him out.
