well I don't know anything about any of these components. I'm stepping up from the crap audioblahs and junk I've had and I've never had anything from these brands before.

I'm still not sure if I'm going to run active but I would like to know the setup I have will if I choice to.

I will be putting these in the front of a 2009 Mazda 3i. Tweets in the sail panels on the doors and the doors will be very well deadened. speakers mounted with MDF rings along with the puddy I read about on here. Speakers will be powered by a Diamond Audio d1300.4.

i vote zapco, i have not heard of any of them personally. the zapco basket on the woofer looks mean and looks like that it would pound if you add the right amount of power. specs are not too bad either or price a good midrange. I was going to recommend focal since i use them for the 165k2p and the 165vr, but the focal did not look that good for an entry level compared to some of these. Either way you can't go wrong all of the brands are excellent quality and represent high end companies.

o I know, I plan on doing alot of the things Ive learned reading around on here. deadened the outer door panels with second skin damplifier Pro and closed cell foam and then seal off the door with a layer of regular damplifier. I think I'm going to leave the rear door speakers on the head unit but was still going to do the same minus the foam.

tell me what you think for the doors, always looking for any helpful input

Focal 165A1.. try to audition and hear the clearness and depth of the front stage. It is a really good entry level component set.
