Good Quality Components? NO! The ones I told you are entry level quality components, if you are lucky to find a local Hertz Authorized Dealer, maybe you can get the DSK's for under $130.00 that would be the same price for the JBL PC series that at 2 ohms it will draw more power from the amp to sound louder if you decide to go with a cheaper 4 channel amp 4x50 W

You may get the Polk ones for just over $100.00 on Ebay but for the extra $30-40 you will be getting way better sound.

Cheaper than those coax and better quality, I doubt you will find any, some of those are under $40.00 a pair.

If you really want to take it to the next level for $300-400, you can get a set of components that will sound like many $600-$900 that don't need a lot of power.

Let us know what you decide to get, just as a courtesy for the thread, many members just ask for help and advice, they get it, then disappear without telling us what they ended up doing, and that is kind of a lack of good manners.

so out of those speakers what would be the best to go with? I will be getting 4 most likely, or should i get different type speakers in the front and back? Send the speaker and amp that would work the best.

That would be cool if you post pics, if you go with the JBL, no need to get 4, just one for the front, the cheap coax I listed was based on your limited budget originally, if you don't mind spending $75-85. Get a matching set of coax for the rear the P series. The reason you don't put components in the rear is because, you want a good front stage, the sound is for the driver and front passenger, the rears are fillers and you will not hear them much, also the nice thing about those p series is you can turn rotate the tweeter to hear them better.
Also installing components is a pain in the a** ( extra wiring, and time to install). You could probably save a bit of money if you go with the JbL coax that have the titanium silk dome tweeter.

so just get one set of JBL P660c for the front and I should be good? what amp should i use to make them sound the best?

How are you driving the kicker subs.? You set with that? , cause if you are not getting coax for the back. You may not need a 4 ch amp, you can bridge the jbl but that's 200 watts each channel and the jbl pcs are 2 ohms, not good for the amp.

You are confusing me dude. Either just get a 2 channel amp for the fronts or get the 4 ch amp and don't bridge it. Maybe you can get some raw mid drivers for the rear, for midbass.

I have a very nice old school JBL GTQ 400 amp that will be very nice on all those speakers..And please go with the components up front..they will sound so much better than a coax..you have the pillar for the tweet to sit in, and the opening for the 6.50 in the bottom of the doors in front/coax in the rears will be fine.pm me if interested in the amp..i have the original specs as well to make you a copy of..amp is fan induction, and can be ran in 6ch mode as well..4x100 @11.6v,no current limit

What are some of the $300-$400 components you recommend? I'm considering getting the JBL MS-62C , if there is something way better for a little more money, I'm open to suggestions. I like a component with a smooth tweeter.
