Ok here is the background story. I ran 2 sets of JL XR 6.5" Components in my old bmw, alpine 9887 HU, memphis mca5004 on the mids/highs.

What I want now, is a component set superior to what i had before with both component sets. If not, then as long as it is better then the old set of xr's in volume, clarity, etc.....

I just got a alpine iva-205 from a buddy of mine and he gave me a set of jl xr 5.25 component CROSSOVERS only.......

1. Is the Alpine IVA-205 capable of running active if i ever decided to experiment with that??
2. Can I make my own set of components based off the crossovers I currently have? Or will i not be able to get the sound I want from these crossovers?
3. My girl works at BBUY so i can get a good deal on some stuff i need, some things they dont carry..... I'll probably get a four channel from them and bridge it most likely.

BTW, the new vehicle is a lincoln aviator......

Less then $500 for sure. I was thinking around $300 or so though. But I'm in no rush so I can pay more if need be.

#1 (http://www.caraudio.com/forums/usertag.php?do=list&action=hash&hash=1) . something with a warranty
#2 (http://www.caraudio.com/forums/usertag.php?do=list&action=hash&hash=2) . something with a very smooth tweeter, that can still get loud enough for me not to need rear speakers
#3 (http://www.caraudio.com/forums/usertag.php?do=list&action=hash&hash=3) . something with very sharp, aggressive mid bass
#4 (http://www.caraudio.com/forums/usertag.php?do=list&action=hash&hash=4) . something able to handle 150 on each side, daily

I forgot the guys name who I talked to about those, he said he thought they wouldnt have enough "volume" for me. have you personally heard those before? i think he was a cdt dealer as well. its just so hard to pick out components and pay soo much money and have never heard them before. i wish i could hear these in person.

THe W205 isn't active capable.

No need to use the crossovers if you buy a proper component set. It will come with some. Alpine Type-R are an option if you can get them at cost.

Speakers will only sound a good as the install. If you want it to sound great, spend more effort on install than speakers.

Thanks for the answer on the w205. Yea i will most likely just end up with a completely new set. Yea i get the type R components for dirt cheap, and those kenwood components for like $60, lol. i still dont think they will be loud/clear enough for my taste.

The install will be great, trust me. I have a GREAT shop in conyers, ga i go to to install my door speakers.
