What I have currently:
Alpine CDA-105Ei head unit
Pioneer TS-W258D4 10" Sub + pioneer monoblock amp

Music: Hiphop+electro/dance type stuff

Will most likely be buying off ebay. (dynamicautosound or the like).

Was looking at a set of Pioneer TS-A1702C for the rear ($160). Not sure about the front. not sure about amp.
Speakers mounting:

Front door panels (not sure on depth but not a lot of room- could use spacers)
Rear side panels (plenty of depth avail).


I am thinking 2 sets of components with 4channel amp as this system will be for a long wheel base van.
Looking for SQ over volume.

Suggestions?..

With the type of music you listen to you want to get components designed for strong midbass. Unless you want to be hearing the beat coming solely from the sub you'll have the high pass crossover set under 100 Hz. Another suggestion I have is to get coaxials for the rear instead of components. Use the money you'll save to get a better amp. You could do maybe $150-175 on the front components, $75-100 on the rear coaxials, and have $200 left for the amp.
$175 shipped Massive Audio CK6 6.5" components (http://www.diymobileaudio.com/forum/classifieds/95539-component-sets-ck6-vk6-sale.html) This guy's a legit seller and that's an awesome price.

Coaxials in the rears will be just fine for passengers, they probably wont be able to tell the difference at all and youll mostly be hearing the components up front so if you wanna save a little money definietely go with coaxials.

thank for the links! the guy selling the amp wont ship international.. still looking around somewhere else.
both the diamonds are components.. are there any coax of other brands on that website I could look at also (for the back)?

Yeah they have coax as well. Diamond Audio D3 6.5-Inch 2-Way 240W Stereo Speakers (http://www.caraudiomix.com/product_p/d363.5i.htm)
If you can't find an amp elsewhere, may save on shipping. MB QUART DSC4125 1000W 4-Channel Amplifier (http://www.caraudiomix.com/DSC4125_p/dsc4125.htm) These are pretty well entry level for the price not a bad amp. But you can catch deals on better amps in the same price range. Try ebay for arc, audison, mccintosh, diamond, rainbow, mmats, zapco, zed etc.

if running the diamond d6 comps upfront and the diamond coax in the rear powered by the diamond amp d600. wouldnt the rear be louder? just adjust the fade to compensate? sorry if its a noob question. Im thinking of running this setup in my TL.

The fader setting is typically adjusted to make the front louder than the rear, so yes, that would take care of that.
