View Full Version : New here, replacing my 6.5s all around, budget is $300 total.

As the title states. I've been doing some lurking but I'm not exactly sure what to get. Budget is about $200 for a set of components up front and $100 for some coax speakers out back. Size is 6.5" all around. I've seen alot of threads saying that the Soundstream RF-60C components are pretty tough to beat at a $200 price point. Is that a good setup and if so what about the rears?

For the record, I am not an audiophile I'm not going to be all out insane with this setup, I just want a nice sounding stereo for listening to XM and my ipod. I have an older kicker amp that I used to power some subs a few years back that I may use to power the speakers, I'll have to dig it out and see exactly what it is but it is a nice piece, not some junk from best buy or wal mart lol.

Thanks in advance!

What about Image Dynamics CTX65CS for comps and one of their coaxials for the back, depending what can fit for you ? They're highly recommended and I'm about to install a set myself

I've been checking out those reviews also and they are stellar for those speakers. I may have to get this set. $189 shipped right now... What rear coaxes are you looking at by these guys? Ugh I might need to just get an amp as well instead of running off the HU. It's only money lol.
