Alright guy's here's what im working with right now for a front stage just the cheap lower line of alpine type s 6.5 coaxials running right off the hu . but i was wondering what would big a good component set to run with the amp will come later down the line. sry this would be the first time i have ran comp's in my car or a 2nd amp also for a front stage. my budget most i would want to spend $160 but i could try for a little bit over cause i will still have to save up for the 2nd amp and also the wiring for that also but that's not to bad. so what you guys think oh almost for got i listen to like everything really so wouldn't just be for spl i listen to rap , rock , techno , metal , screamo everything pretty much except country lol. well would appericate the help thx guys.

Hypnotic HV5's. That's if you can find them. I got mine for $26 shipped, which is far less than dealer cost. They have GREAT mid bass, but the tweeter *****, I suggest finding some soft tweets if you do get this line.

PG RSD's sound pretty nice and are only like $90...

My boston acoustics s60's sound pretty good without an amp. I'm sure they'll sound much better amped, but they've not dissappointed me off hu power for over a year.

gijoe i saw that component set today at this shop i know but there like $600 something i was like sh*t.

No, you saw the Z series, the S60's can be bought for about $100.

oh alright yeah i also saw the new type x component set by alpine my friend that works at the shop that let me hear em man what a nice clean clear crisp sound they had.

I dont personally like the X's. If I were looking at a more name brand I'd pick up a set of JL Xr's, they're pretty clean and all I keep hearing is they can take the power and get louder, clean sound still

You could pick up the JL's online for not a whole lot more than you're looking.

Another good little set is the Pioneer REV's, a friend of mine has a set on his Panasonic and they sound pretty nice, I was suprised.

They are okay for an economy set. They go for $85 retail from the cadence company store online. For about twice the money you could get a top of the line set of speakers.

x2. The CVL-6K (http://www.cadencestore.com/ProductCart/pc/viewPrd.asp?idcategory=89&idproduct=235) can be bought from the Cadence rep here on the forums in the neighborhood of $200 shipped.

I'll second the VMAX-65 and the REVs. Either choice would be decent for the money and amped on 2x50-100w rms, IMO. The RSd65cs would be a wonderful choice if you can feed them around 2x150w rms.
