I'm looking into buying new components to upgrade my Focal Access 5.25 2 ways. I haven't had a chance to take a trip to any of the local car audio stores, so right now all I'm looking for is some opinions on what you've heard/recommend. I wanna keep the price around $300.00- $450.00, so anything in that range will be best suited for the job. If anyone could recommend a good quality amp for the speakers as well, it would be greatly appreciated.


Thanks

Is $300-$450 for just the speakers, or with the amp?? If it's just the speakers, what are you lookin' to spend on an amp??

yup, 300-450 is just for the speakers. I guess $500 would be the MAX I would wanna spend for an amp.

For an amp, check out Tru Technology (www.trutechnology.com) and US Amps (www.usamps.com)

Components, look into DLS, Morel, Boston Acoustic's Pro Series, Focal, Arc Audio, Image Dynamics and MB Quart

How's this one for 2 sets of front components (5.25), and 2 coaxial rear fill 5.25's?

Lets say for something along the lines of Focal K2's?



I also need an amp for either one or two twelves, most likely two.


Here is a short list of what im considering

Adire Brahma
ID Max
JLw6v2
JL 13w7


Again I wanna keep the price around $500 for the sub amp(s), and it's going in my 96 240sx so probably a 60/40 sq/spl split would be perfect since it's a daily driver.

Well, it's an awesome amp......and it will also run you well over $1000. You'll need to stay within the T series and Tv2 series (what you linked is the T03 series) if you want to stay around $500
