I got rid of the camaro and bought a 01 jeep cherokee. Front speakers are 5.25 and Rear speakers are 5.25.

I am going to run 2 Fi 18" BTL. What I am looking for is a nice set of components. The head unit is Alpine CDA-9887 and the amp for the components sundown SAX-100.4D. I want to be able to hear the music and bass. I've got $1,000 for components.

what should I use? Should I have rear fill? I listen to rap and rock. I've heard rainbow, mb quarts and memphis. This was long time ago though.

no they are all different...finding the "best" component is a matter of personal taste
the ones mentioned are just solid performers which deliver good sound...but once again
depends as everyone has their own way to determine what's the "best" sound

with your HU/amp I'd look into an active set up for the front and open the doors to put 6.5's in there. If you still want rear fill run then get a 2 channel amp for them.

No they are not the same...but Bravox may be the build house for Brax, the list is not released until after the contracts are canceled.

When I had my Zapco CK's hooked up, I used an Alpine PDX 4.150 to power them. Had the gain pretty much all the way down, about a notch or two above the lowest possible setting. They got plenty loud and kept up with two different sub setups (18" RL-p and 18" TC 5200). Both were in 5 cubes sealed. RL-p saw a around 2k, while the TC 5200 saw around 3k. I was doing 137 constantly on music around 32 Hz with the RL-p, and I'd say low 140's with the TC 5200.

I could have turned up the gains for the mids and tweeters but there was no need to. If you're interested, I'm selling them for $450 shipped...bought authorized as well. Cheapest deal you will find on these (crossover were never used so they are brand new). Rest were used for about 3 months. Want high end, top of the line (1 of the 5 best components ever according to an editor from CA&E magazine) for half your budget? These would be an excellent choice.

I would forget about the rears and do a HLCD
http://www.imagedynamicsusa.com/products.php?Family_Id=5 and get some LOUD dynamic 5.25" speakers like a Beyma competion line should keep up Okay. I had some AVI 5.25" that did ok. 5.25" speakers will be hurting trying to put out solid midbass in a set up with a lot of bass

If you have that kinda coin look into the Image Dynamics Horns and XS6 mids. Trust me when I say putting 50wrms on the horns would still keep up with both BTL's. Put about 300wrms on the XS6 mids and call it a day. Loud as hell and will sound oh so good doing it.

I don't think RF speakers are that great. Amps are great, but speakers I would pass on. So many other options that would be better IMO.

so going active means no components?

HU - crossover - amp - speakers??

i'm thinking about getting some q logic kick panels. http://akamaipix.crutchfield.com/Manuals/044/044C30101.PDF

As long as you have the room, its one of the best route IMO
