    newbie here..need some help/advice

    ok, i've got a 2002 Trans Am WS.6. right now i've got a 500.2 phoenix gold tantrum amp pushing a JL10w6 in a stealth box, everything else is the stock monsoon system right now. i'll be getting this head unit link
    i'll also be getting a 200.2 PG Xenon amp to push the comps. i need to figure out what components to run up front, 6.5's. i'm leaning towards CDT, can get the EF series for $190, but i've never heard ANY set from CDT, although i have friends who rave about them and i've also read good things about them. there are so many **** choices, i cant even think straight
    any help/suggestions would be great.

    heres a couple pics for good measure




    oh yeah, and if it makes any difference as to what speakers...i pretty much listen to rock. but i would like a good, precise speaker that sounds good with everything

    just in general, some brands to look at are: Phoenix Gold, RE, Alpine, Focal, CDT, Boston Acoustics, JBL, Eclipse, and Infinity. There's lots to choose from. You might want to state your needs more specifically.

    yeah..i'd kinda like to stay away from alpine/eclipse/infinity/jbl stuff, infinity is probably my favorite out of the bunch, but id like to go a different route than the more "typical" speakers. the best speakers ive ever personally heard were focal's but theyre big bucks. i had a set of PG comps in my truck and i was pretty disapointed in them

    i wish i could hear all these first hand before i drop the money for them

    er take it out of the list... IMO the infinitys have ZERO midbass (yea i heard them... its not all internet rumor) but the tweets arent as harsh as they are fabled to be

    Re: newbie here..need some help/advice

    depends on a couple of things... the type of components your are getting (how much power they handle), your price range
