i have a '07 new body silverado crew cab. I'm going to put the 6's in the doors and the tweets in the factory locations in the pillars. I will be putting the matching coaxs in the back doors. I'm thinking of a single 10 or 12 and a 5 ch. amp. Need some opinions. Thanks.

5channel amp are ... ok at best
You better get a 2channel/4 channel to power the front stage, ditch the rear and then get a class d amplifier for the sub (or class a/b if low power)

Just give 200watt per side for the ctx65cs, deaden the doors and you're set! :D

So... no reason to amp the back doors? The only reason i was going to do a 5 ch. is there isnt much room in these trucks for amps.

look for alpine amps. They do rated and are pretty small too. amps don't take place when you use your creativity :p

Id's without a doubt. I was in the same boat as you about two weeks ago and I took ca.com's oppinions and went with the Id's. TRUST me you won't be upset.

With the Pioneers you may not want to leave your car for hours with the ID's you dont want to leave your car for days. :D

Definitely the CTX65CS, they sound amazing for the money. I have a set myself and I can't complain at all.

hes lookin at coaxials, not components.....btw I own, and run both...the pioneers in the rear. Both sound sick. I actually have some brand new ctx65s but one came with a damaged tweet and will need to be replaced. ID said they can get me a new one.

Comparing the two, they both sound great. The pioneers can get very loud, but the tweet on both is very clean and not harsh....cant go wrong with either,

Actually i was talking about components and coaxs. I think i'm going to do just the comps. in the front and leave factory in the rear for now. I have a 2 ch. to push the fronts with.

I love my Pioneers. It helps that I get those on my employee discount, but they really are great speakers. I haven't heard the IDs, but their reputation precedes them, so I'm sure you'll be happy with either.

I have ran the CTX set myself and they are nice speakers. No experience with the Pioneers. My guess is they are pretty comparable. My two biggest factors would be price and customer service. With ID you can call and talk to the owner. Pioneer? Well take it to authorized center, wait forever, etc. I blew both CTX mids thru sheer stupidity. Called ID...told them about it over phone, had new mids a week later no questions asked. And talked on the phone about car stereo for the better part of an hour with Eric. Buy the ID's.
