I have an '05 Cobalt LS coupe. Right now I have:

Alpine CDA-9884
Alpine MRP-M500
Infinity REF1052W

The sub I can replace later. Right now I need advice on good speakers (component or coaxial) for no more than say $175 and an amp(preferably Alpine) for about the same price.

SQ is my goal. Yes, I plan on deadening my doors. Now how much deadener do I need? I want the doors and trunk done.

And finally any opinions on a 10" SQ sub for future references would be appreciated. Budget will probably be about $150-200 on sub. Thanks.

He wants component advice.

You are going to have a hard time finding a newer alpine for 175, even though you might find a steal on one.

I'd suggest looking into Hertz, Lower-End Rainbows, (even though I didnt personally like the set I heard) Alpine Type X, Lower-End Focals andddd CDT :-)

I've been looking at CDT, ID, and even the PG RSDs

Agreed. Throw Morel in there too.

diamond hexes are amazing, anyone who says they aren't worth the 200 dollars is full of it. I will never change these components unless i am looking to spend 400+ on something new.

They are much louder and sound better than the CDT's i used to have, and the midbass is amazing.

Bravox Audio, cleaner at higher volumes and can take power...
