View Full Version : Need to buy new components...

05-01-2010, 05:38 AM
So the Front components in my 01 GS 430 blew up somehow (both sides, at the same time?)
I had some high end rockford fosgate's in there from years back, 5.25"

Now I have been out of the car audio game for a while, but still know which brands are good etc. (Got type X comps in my supra, diamond audio s600 in my acura etc..)

System of lexus..

-Alpine IVA-W505
-Rockford front/rear components (forgot the models, but used to retail for 1000)
-Alpine PDX 4.150
-Alpine PDX 1.1000
-Alpine Type R 12" x 2

Now locally i cant get much here, I usually do some research and buy (ie the diamonds), but i dont have much time to research these days.... soo I compiled a list of the comps Im looking at, music is usually r&b/hiphop.

1) Alpine SPX-13PRO

2) CDT-520 Eurosport (orange baskets not the yellow)

3) CDT CL-51A-25 Pro


5) CDT CL-51

6) Focal 130KF

7) Morel tempo 5

8) Rainbow SLC 230

9) AVI component sets, not sure which models/price but am looking at them

Price range is approx 200-350, i rather keep it around 300...but yah let me know what you guys think/reccomend

I vote for #1,2 or 8.Pretty much a toss up.I haven't heard the Focal's so I can't say on those.I really like the midrange out of the first 2 sets.The Alpines have one of the best tweeters out there in my opinion-I got 2 pair of them in some bookshelf speakers at home,one pair has the CDT mids(yellow ones).You won't get much midbass outta 5 and a quarters though.Can you fit 6-1/2's.
