come on anyone??

zapco ref-350 or look into arc audio or even tru or mcintosh if you got the money. i wouldn't pair those speakers with anything but the best. my utopia's are gonna be paired with the zapco ref-350. good luck.

ok.but what kind of door speakers should i use in the back? i mean what would sound the best with them?

03-27-2004, 10:24 AM
you don't need rear fill, it won't help the sq. just go with a front stage.

whats that mean?

03-27-2004, 04:05 PM
focal components and what else??

03-27-2004, 04:30 PM
im gonna get the focal utopia 165W3 component set but is that all i should use i wouldnt think that would be enough for the re's

no need for any other speakers than the Utopias u will be using up front. For amps just find something that will put out 100x2 at 4 ohms. If ur controlling the Xover from ur head unit then u wont notice a difference between a hifonics amp or a zapco amp. What kind of price are u looking at? and what kind of RE's are u getting, cuz u get grab a nice 4 channel amp and run everything off that.

sorry man im just gettin all impatient cause im tryin to find the best setup i can get my hands on and quick..i use the search alot but its hard to find people with the same questions as me.

yea i understand, your fine. just you know, try to be a little patient. as far as your setup, the 2 XXX's will not drown your vocals especially if you go with the utopia's. i have a set, the 136W 5.25'', coming to me on wednesday i'll hopefully have them installed by saturday. i'm hoping for great things from these speakers.

I have been really pleased with my US Amps TU-600. You really do have a ton of options.

jl 300.4 $379 = 75x4
pg ti500.4 $519 = 75x4
orion 800.4 $359 = 100x4

then there is always zapco & xtant & new mb quart amps, new diamond audio amps, etc.
