View Full Version : Speaker options help for noob

04-25-2010, 10:24 PM
I have my install in a few days. Just wanted to get input while I still have a chance to switch things up. My goals are SQL, clean looking install with very little rattle. I would like to eventually have the entire vehicle deadened ect.

2002 Grand Cherokee Overland
Mmats D300 - Optimized for 4ohm 700 w @ 13.8 v
TC Sounds 2000 15" 4ohm driver in custom ported box at 30 hz (you tube link)
YouTube - Finished Jeep box! - 15" TC Sounds 2000 - AQ2200 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5hTqCAB1QVk) This is my substage on my box builders system.
$150 worth of Raamat and ensolite for the entire trunk area.
Alpine iDA-X305S with bluetooth and steering wheel controls.
Alpine MRV-F345 birthsheet at 102w x 4 @ 4ohm
Alpine Type-R components up front
JL TR650-CXi Coaxials for the rear- JL Audio TR650-CXi Evolution Car Audio Speakers (http://mobile.jlaudio.com/products_components.php?comp_id=122)

My questions are...
-Should I scrap the JL's in the rear and find a pair of cheap components using only the woofer and crossover as a midbass. I.E. PG RSD 6.5?
-Or keep the rear fill as it is and see how everything plays out?

Budget is for used products preferred. $100
My install is in two days so I need to make it happen early tomorrow if necessary. Thanks in advance.

deaden your doors and rear speaker area.

Why would you scrap speakers you have that are functional? Are you trying to go with all alpine? THen get alpine. after you deaden doors and rear speaker area.

As far as SQL, Alpine have alot of nice stuff. you should be able to achive sql with their equip.

I was thinking, instead of coaxials I should get a pair of dedicated midbass. It does not have to be all alpine although I think they have excellent head units and amps.
