10-20-2012, 07:50 PM
ok i just purchased most of my equipment for my install, couple American Bass amps and an xfl 12, box, wiring, you get the picture. well when i went to look at there speaker selection, well they have no component sets.

so while staying on a budget preferably less than 300 i need a set of 6.5 comps that will do the rest of the system justice. i have 100w per channel on tap and processing by an 80prs.

current ideas are the
pioneer d series
db drive s9
sundown sa6.5cs
hat imagine

i can spring a few more bills if needed but id like to save as much as possible for the door treatment.

the pioneer are the cheapest leaving me more to invest in the deadener, mlv, etc.

Go to an audio shop and try some sets... you might save some disappointments and some bucks.

But Im running these up front which is out of your asking budget,along with another set of seperates to be relocated up front as well.CDT do sound pretty good..the mids are fantastic, so are the Beymas

yea dont really want alpine, rockford, kicker, memphis, polk, or jl trying to stay away from mainstream. but at the cost of the pioneer and the fact that they are actually recommended here and there just makes them seem like a good deal. ive got about 750 left for deadened speakers and extras but cheaper is better.

any opinions on the hertz energy line? the orange cone will match my car's color

I never thought yuo do budget setups

I can get you a 2 ohm or 4 ohm set of CDT HD-61As for that budget.

I never thought yuo do budget setups

My budget system was $1200+ so no I don't do $300 budget systems

Actually my starting budget was 2k ended up around 1300 and I had 750 for door speakers and treatment not really a budget system by your standards or did you fail to read the thread

trumpet; I appreciate it man I ended up with the db drive s9s this guy is trying to ruffle my feathers by bringing up old threads

I'm curious what kind of deal you got on the S9s. The S7 components are fairly expensive, and I can't get the S9 components without a special order.

The s9s cost me 250 they were nice off of 200w a side I had them turned way down of coarse but they loved the head room
