So i have an 06 Grand prix.

It has 6.5" components and tweeters in the door.
And in the back 6x9's.

I have $500 shipped for the best combo. What would you get?

So i was thinking maybe..

and would it make more sense to have a 4ch amp or 2 2ch amps? Or could i run all of my speakers on one amp like one 2ch ?

Get a set of Rainbow Germaniums and biamp them with a 4 channel amp. Leave the stock speakers running off HU power if you really want rear fill. Hit up the Rainbow dealers on the forum here and see who can get you the best deal.

Having a GREAT frontstage, and a stock rearfill?

That would totally kill any SQ there.

Having rear fill ***** and is completely pointless with or without a great front stage.

Rear fill would totally kill all SQ, soundstaging, and imaging there.

Learn from this.

so any suggestions?

I might be able to get 2 sets of infinity perfect 6.1s for 300. Ill probably do that and then try to figure out what to do in the back... make a bracket or something.

I'm still going to recommend the Germaniums with a 4ch amp to biamp with. Just buy a cheap pair of Kenwood or Pioneer 6x9's to tide you over until you can get a sub stage.

Although Nate's Cadence set might not be a bad option to consider as well.

Rainbow Germs...you'd be surprised how much bass they can produce given the right amount of power.

i would run some nice quality comps in front, 6x9" midbass in the rears.
