alright i'm not going to lie i honestly do not know allot about comps speakers. i usually stick in the subs and amp section. i remember a while back there was a set of comps for i think under 100 bucks that everyone was buying. so if u have any suggestions for a set for under 100 bucks. let me know. i want to try and stick with new if its possible. but i will buy a used amp. so if u have an amp that would work well along with a suggestion of new comps for under 100 let me know. thanks. any of these look good?

Lol, everything I find is at least 150.
If you were willing to do that, I would probably go with some Polk ones, I have some coax right now that I'm using that I rather enjoy, the highs are crisp and clear, and they handle some mid decently....
I'm sure you could get some type RRG comps for 150ish...

I know there was a big ca.com boner of PG RSD and the CDT's so i imagine you couldn't go wrong with either....i've never heard cdt's though

ya i think i may up my budget alittle i am trying to stay at around 300 for both the comps and amp. and i think this amp looks pretty good. only 100 bucks. here (http://www.cadencestore.com/ProductCart/pc/viewPrd.asp?idcategory=125&idproduct=381) and ya the PG RSDs are was i was talking about i remeber some place had them for sale for less then 100. but i cant find it now.

edit heres the pg rsds on ebay for less than 80 shipped (http://cgi.ebay.com/PHOENIX-GOLD-RSd-65cs-6-5-COMPONENT-SPEAKERS-RSd65cs_W0QQitemZ400008802138QQcmdZViewItemQQptZCa r_Speakers?hash=item400008802138&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14&_trkparms=72%3A1234|66%3A2|65%3A12|39%3A1|240%3A13 18) you guys think those would work good with that amp?

lol i dont know?
maybe that is the boner right now...i can't keep up with them.

Is that cadence amp gonna feed comps well?
I don't have any experience with candence, but i see 75watts to each side on 13.8v system.
and i have a 12-12.5v system so..yea.

Dude. No. The lower CDT line is bad. I had the CL-61FG's, and the CL-61's, and while the FG sounded a little better, they both sounded like ***.

I say go with the PG RSD's. For $70 bucks, you can't beat 'em.

You can, but then you get a mono signal to your right and left speakers.
I know what your saying, bridge the 2channel for the 300w that way your getting 150 at 2 on each side, but with speakers you want those two channels. not mono. thats not to mention that that cadence is not 2 ohm stable bridged.

if the speakers are rated at 60, 75 is plenty.
typically with front stage, you dont want to bridge anything into mono.
only scenario where you might do that is 4 channels and you bridge the two right channels and the two left channels.

ya thats what i need help on is wiring them. subs with a mono amp i understand but this stuff i do not. so lets say i go with this set (http://www.woofersetc.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=product.display&Product_ID=6952) what do i need the amp to be able to provide at least 120 RMS at for the pair?

am i thinking about it wrong? since its two channels if i get 4 ohm speakers i wire onespeaker to one channel and the other speaker to the other channel. getting me to 4 ohm load out of each channel? so for that cadence i would be getting 75 from each channel? or do i have it wrong? thanks for the help.

11-19-2008, 05:01 PM
maybe this is just me, but i'm not sure those PG's will keep up with your aaarrrhhhhs man. If you're subs hit harder than mine, which you say they do, i think you should be pushing at least 100 rms to your comps instead of 75, we do have the same subs which is why i am putting in my 2 cents here.

yeah, but then you will just be wasting money. I went from pioneer coaxials- alpine type s comps- cdt CL's - Diamond Hex S600s and i finally got what i wanted. If i would have just spent the extra $50 on the hex's in the first place i would have been much happier.

The PG's are probably good, but if your subs are louder than mine, i would think about it a little more.

how much power and at what ohm would i need to power the hexs? im open to suggestions. id rather do it right the first time even if i have to wait a week before i buy.

well, their 150x2 at 4 ohms. You would need 150x2 at 4 ohms.I know you want to go as cheap as possible with the amp, so you should buy this one. trust me on this, it is worth every penny. You can't get a better deal IMO.

Ikesound are ********* for selling these amps so cheap, check this out, it does 150x2 bridged. It's a 4 channel amp BTW.

hell yeah, the diamond hex's are $200 themselves though. The Orion HP amps are great, they are a refurb which is why they are so cheap, but if you have a problem ever they have a warranty on refurbs as well at ikesound. That amp is worth over $160 new and retailed for $350 a few years back.

No, the rating is per set. Most people will run with a but of overhead as well. My Type-x's are rated at 75wrms, and I have them on a Kicker SX600.2 putting out approx. 150wrms per channel.
