replacing the speakers in my 99 cherokee. From what ive gathered 6.5's fit up front and i have 6.5's in the rear. Although Im kind of worried about depth issues up front.

Im looking at alpine SPR-17S components up front and Alpine SPR-17C coaxials in the rear. Are these good speakers? I want something that sounds good without a sub also because Im not gunna be bumping all the time but also want them compliment my 12 inch Re SX at 1500 watts. I guess my biggest concern is I dont want to be drowned out.

Would this amp work to power each at 100 watts?

Confused on the whole ohm thing on speakers

I'd ditch the coaxials, not have any rear speakers...also not a fan of the Type R components.

How much depth do you actually have? Don't forget that to get the most out of them, you'll need to build a baffle out of 1/2" or 3/4" material to mount the speaker to, should get you a little more clearance in the door...

Why no rear speakers? It seems like this is a popular choice for people? If not Alpine any recommendations? Can anyone explain the baffle thing better?

There's a thread here, "Sound Deadening and You", that's required reading for this.

I'm not a fan of rear speakers because they wreck any potential at a coherent stereo image up front, if this isn't a concern of yours then it's alright.

Get some ID CTX65cs comps for the front and leave the rears out, I ran Alpine speakers before and was not impressed with them honestly.

http://www.knukonceptz.com/productDetail.cfm?prodID=KFX-AK44. And this wiring kit. Tell me that's not a nice budget system. Do u wanna do subs and a sub amp too cause I found really cheap jl audio w3's. The new ones for less than $160.

you need the adapter brackets for 6.5's to fit in the front, because stock is 6x9.
the rears are 6.5s.

heres an adapter that fits the cherokees 6x9 to 6.5".

Ive already got the sub and amp under control. I guess I could run my stock rears. Never really gave much thought to that. Thanks guys I think Ive figured everything out for!
