OK so here's the dealie-o I got 1k to put into my speakers. I have room for 1 set of 9x6's 1 set of 5 1/4" and some door speakers that are 3.5" but i could probly make them 5 1/4's also. The music I listen too is Rock, Metal, Punk, Gothic. A guy at Ultimate Electronics recommended Diamond speaks which i have no knowledge about. What would be good for me? :cool:

I'm not looking to get 36 speakers but im not gonna only have 4 either. Im just looking at 6 speakers and a sub...is that too much? And anyway what do you think i should put in there then, i am looking for Quality over quantity and over loudness.

I'll put in a sub but that has it's own budget.

if you prefer sound quality then get a set of kick *** components for the front and see how that sounds

Rainbow Powerline CS ... and don't forget, an amp capable of around 250 watts times 2 channels.

Get some Rainbow Powerline CMX Kicks (about $330 shipped) or the Powerline CS (almost $1000 shipped) from an authorized dealer here on the forum. Either choice should give you an awesome front stage. Don't worry about the rears right now... you just might be surprised how good a system can sound with only strong front speakers and a subwoofer stage. Then if you do want rears, you can just add them in later.

Dynaudio 242, Seas Lotus Reference Comp Set, Seas Lotus Performance Comp or Rainbow Profi Phase Plug Comp set would be my choices. But I'm not sure what kind of sound you after. Some of these components have very different sound.

Also for some reason I didn't fancy the CAl27 all that much. It was okay but IMO the cal26 titan was a better tweeter for my tastes.

CS 275.27 (http://car.rainbow-audio.de/products/details.php?lan=2&pro=1&lin=5&art=231161) (the mids look awfully similar to the Vanadium 7" subwoofer (http://car.rainbow-audio.de/products/details.php?lan=2&pro=2&lin=13&art=231167), don't they?! ;) )

6 speakers?! I had a 95 Intrepid at one point and I only recall front door 6.5's and rear deck 6x9's


What I did with that car was replaced the fronts and switched to components with the tweeter mounted on the a pillar and replaced the 6x9s with cheapos to handle midbass. Finally I threw 2 12's in the trunk. System sounded great.

This time around i started with 6 stock speakers. I ended up ripping out 4 and only running a high-end front component set paired with a 10in sub in the back.

Ive come from using several speakers and wont go back.......less really is more when done right.

Also if you are spending 1,000 on speakers I hope you are spending money on some deadener.

Well I'll put an update when i get all this done on what happens but from my point of view I love sound quality but i don't mind sacrificing a little tiny bit of quality for a bit of loudness. And on that note i'll probly end up just putting in one Sub maybe a 14"
