i am going to put new speakers in my truck, polyglass is about the right price range for me. i wont a clear, crisp, clean, sound.

truck: toyota tacoma x-runner
front: 6x9 with tweeter spot on the door
rear : 6.5
subs 2=RL-i 10 .5 cuft each

should i run it like this
front: 6x9 690 CV1 (and remove the tweeter and put it in the door panel) can u do that
rear: 6.5 165 V2

or
front: 6.5 165 V2
rear: 6.5 165 V2

the 165 V2 and 690 CV1 info: http://www.focal-america.com/
(((go TO Products---Speakers---Polyglass---Pick 690 CV1---there will be a red extra tab in the corner of the 690CV1 page---then find and click the models to get specs)))

p.s. i tried to put them on her but its a pdf file and it would not go to the url

if u need any more info just ask

i have no amps yet working with the speakers first

thanks
chris

Do the second option and run both of the 6.5's in the fronts and rears. Don't do 6x9.

I don't think Focal makes a 6X9 component set... stick with 6.5" comps.

Since you have a sub, there is no need for comps in the rear.... get one better set for the front.

Since you like Focal, I would get something from the kevlar line... or save some money and get Cerwin Vega V-Max-65 convertible comps from onlinecarstereo.com... they sound like the kevlars for much less.

Have you actually heard a Focal setup before?

The Focal tweet is a love/hate thing...

i dont recommend ppl on this forum cuz i live half way across the world and the stuff that i get here is mostly european production(and a **** load of chinese garbage) so i cant say whats your best buy...im just gonna say that if i were u id stay away from focal, at least in that price range...utopia line and that top of the line **** is fantastic but this is a whole nother story to tell...

If you want loud and clear, and in the Polyglass price range, check out the Boston Pro60's.

Most of those European production speakers are better than the crap that gets recommended here :)

Seas, Dynaudio, Rainbow, Scanspeak, DLS,etc...

dynaudio, scanspeak and dls are pretty pricy in my country, rainbow i cant even get without ordering abroad...id recommend a phase evolution cfs 165 if he can get it thru ebay(its the equivolent of the dls reference series, just better)..i had both on the same amps, and phase sounded light years better.it was a bit more expensive then polyglass though

If $300 is for brand new, especially authorized, that's a good deal for those.

ok what would u get under 300

JimJ

I'd piece together something from individual drivers, and use an active crossover.

http://www.zaphaudio.com has a lot of reviews of separate tweeters/midbasses.

get the focals. i had them and loved them. If you wanna spend twice as much, the polykevlars haev a lil better tweeter, quite a bit more midbass, and a little brighter. BUT DEFF. get a good clear amp for them (Audison, sundown, zapco...)

takes getting used to, but the upper series are much different then the low end stuff...for 300$ Qline is a really good buy...

edit: at least for my standards as i dont really know what u can get in the states for 300$...your prices and mine are....somewhat different:crap::crap::crap::crap::wow::crying:
