Hey everyone, I'd appreciate it if you could help me pick a comp set.

Here are the specs. I will be using a 50x4 amp, I want them to be 6 1/2", I would like them to have a really good low end, as my current speakers provide plenty of highs, and I want to put the new ones in the door next to my current ones. (my current speakers are from the factory, but its one of those premium sound set ups). They also need to be 4ohm.

My budget is around $100 or so. Got any ideas?

Also, will putting two midrange drivers and one set of tweets in each door sound good? or should I only use one comp set?

Thanks in advanced.

Get a set of CDT classics, oh and definately ditch the stock speakers.

It says that the CDT speakers run at 110w, but my amp is only putting out 50 on each channel, will that be ok? Or do they mean that a tweeter + a midrange = 110w?

You have a 4 channel amp, each side only requires 1 channel, bridge each set on 2 channels of your amp.

I say, if you like the speakers currently there, $100 may be better spent amplifying/processing those...$100 ain't much. So if you like the highs, look into home drivers that fit your needs at partsexpress.com or madisound.com to replace the midbass. My .02

The CDT classics is a ok sounding, i would buy these pioneers which have a power rating of 50-230.
