Well, Ive been out of car audio for quite a while, which i must say has been good to my wallet, but i got a new car about 6 months ago, and i simply cannot deal with the stock system anymore.

Its a 2002 Chrysler Concorde, with the "Premium" sound setup which consists of 2 sets of 6.75" component speakers Front door, Rear door, 6x9's on the rear deck, and Factory "infinity" amp, and a regular old head unit with a 4 disc changer below it.

The way my life's started shaping up lately i REALLY shouldn't be spending much money on upgrading this setup, but i think i've figured out a way to do it fairly on the cheap.

I have almost all the stuff in my Sig that i can recycle from my old car, So heres the plan:

Keep the Alpine CDA-7995 and hook it up to the factory amp

Sell off the 4 channel Hifonics amp, as well as all of the speakers I have laying around (Some pheonix gold components, the MB quarts, and some audiobahn 4x6's)

Hopefully this will yeild enough money to pick up a set of really nice components for the fronts, and some half decent ones for the rear doors, and some 6x9's for the back. And i'll run all of these off of the factory "infinity" amp, connected to the cda-7995 And hopefully this will get me a half decent sounding setup without trashing my car to install aftermarket subs, and amps and such.

So i need recomendations for 2 ohm speakers so far i have only found some INFINITY REFERENCE 6020CS 6.5 components

JBL GTO607C 6.5 components

JBL GTO927 6x9's


I'm not to impressed with the idea of any of these speakers to be honest, i know the infinitys are really weak on bass, wich is a no-no, scince i'm not going to be having a sub for a **** long while.

Any i just havent heard the JBL's at all.

Sorry for the long post...

Oooh just found the Image Dynamics CXS62, but they are hard to find i think, and most likely a bit high in price for me.

But they would be dang nice...

RE XXX 6.5" Components have 2Ω Mids, 4Ω Tweeters. I like my set, but after dealing with RE's customer service recently I'm weary about recommending them...

Sorry if I missed it, but do you have an idea of price range..?

kenwood excelon has a good set. its the KFC-X1720P those are designed at a 2 ohm load, handle crazy power and sound really crisp

Looks like also the RE XXX sets are also 2 ohm, but also way out of my price range.

Also the Kenwood KFCX1720P, but as with JBL's i'd have to give these a listen before i even started to consider them.

Sorry, we posted at the same time i guess.

No offense, but you only have one post, and your post smells a bit spammy.

So i'm not going to go pouncing on that deal, but i will give them a listen when i get a chance...

You can get the XXX on ebay for $270 shipped.

One thing though, those woofers are deeeeep, around 3 1/2", so you would have to be sure how deep your doors are.

Also, anyone know anything about Cadence? I know they made Ok amps for a while... what about their speakers?

Oh that would be SO sweet to have those, but running em off of a factory amp wouldt even start to do them justice...

Ebay also has the Infinity Kappas for 130... but They still have similar bass issues if i remember right.

As much as I hate the Hifonics, it'd at least give you a start for a 2-way active setup.

WTF?:eek: How did you find a pair of those for that cheap? I'd by those immediately if i could find a pair for anywhere near that cheap.

The CAdence 2 ohm components have received pretty good reviews. They are definitely a steal for 80 bucks though.

Well, the Hifonics is on ebay as we speak, so it may be a little late for that. They say that the factory infinity amp that i have actually isn't terrible for a factory amp... so i think I'm going to give it a shot for a little while.

I'm trying to keep this whole install fairly low-profile, I'm even hesitant to use an after-market head unit, just cause its gonnna mess up stuff, and orphan the steering wheel controls and cd changer.

Can you point me at a couple of these reviews, because my google search turned up pretty empty as far as review fro those go.

Junk the rear deck speakers. I don't even know why manufacturers install them except maybe because '8 speaker premium sound system' sounds better than '6 speaker premium sound system.' in an advertisement.

I probably will end up doing that... Or i was thinking about installing small subs in the deck, but that would be down the road a little.
