View Full Version : Need suggestions on comps for my Tahoe

So I have an '01 Tahoe, so I am pretty sure that the speaker size is 6.5, and I am looking to replace my stock component speakers up front because my passenger side is almost dead.

I have two 12 inch Type-R's and want a decent pair of speakers to go along with those. I listen to every kind of music, but lately it has been more alternative and rock.

Now I dont want to spend a ton of money, because I am a college student and money is already scarce. So my question is: What do you think would be the best budget pair of component speakers? And also I am assuming I would need a small amp, so what would you suggest for that?

Any help would be great! Thanks!

for bang for your buck comps Phoenix Gold rsd65cs are hard to beat. They're $89.99 brand new from woofersetc.com. That's what I'm running right now and for the money they are quite nice.

What kind of amp would you run with these?

Any Decent two channel between 75-150 watts per channel should work great

A pair of Crescendo CCX65 components and my JL Audio 300/2 would set you back $250 shipped, OP...

How do you tell a decent amp from a bad one? Like I said, I dont want to spend a ton of money, but I also dont want to get an amp that will make my speakers sound not so great

After reading the review here I'm going with Hybrid Audio Techologies Imagine I61-2.

I'd suggest taking a look at Clarus Series C61-2 comps but replacing the Clarus tweeters with Hybrid Legatia L1v2 tweeters. Of course, my suggestion may not be "budget" worthy. :naughty:

The Crescendo components are the probably the best you will find for the $100 and less range.

I've been meaning to ask you about the Crescendo comps, man. Do they sound okay for $100 components, or do they sound okay because they just sound okay?
