well first off...

does one set constitute one mid and one tweet
or does one set give you both mids and both tweets...

do you need an amp? which amp would be a good
choice? ill be running this off my stock HU... is this
going to be a huge problem??? will a stock electrical
be able to handle a sub amp and a comp amp???
where does the comp amp even get mounted in
the car???

is it worth it???

thanks... i know nothing about comps...

a set includes 2 mids, 2 tweeters, and 2 cross-overs
you dont need an amp but it would be better than just an HU, especially a stock one
it depends on your alternator and the amps you are going to use
wherever you want to put it with adequate air flow
yes

that expensive... im going to try and maybe get it
for christmas from the girlfriend or something...

You would wire one channel to each crossover, then one mid and one tweet would get connected to each crossover.

i get it now... im sure i will be getting this
installed by someone who knows what
they are doing...

will the RE 6.5's fit where my current 6.5's
are in the doors??? generally...

i dont know where i would put the tweets...

so now... whats a good amp... do they
need a ton of power???

Acidburn

yes, the 6.5" mid should fit in the stock 6.5" location
the tweets can go in many different locations, whatever sounds best to you
i believe RMS is 50-60w but didnt snova run 150w to them for his review?

ok well i have the re comps and its def worth the money, as far as running it off your stock deck you should be fine but these suckers really start to shine with some real power goin to them. the way that the cross over works is that theres input + and- then there tweet + and - and then theres mid + and - so you just run you power to the input and run the other wires to your speeks. amps wise i have a us amps 4260 which puts out 65 on each channel at 12 volts so there probably getting about 70 rms actually, but these things sound great
