    A Good Setup for Rap/Hip-Hop?

    I listen to mostly Rap/Hip-Hop and some occasional techno/trance. Every now and then I will throw some rock in there. Here is what I have set up for my system. I really don't need that great of sound quality, I would just like some hard-hitting bass with decent sound. Any of your opinions would be great. Thanks.


    Headunit: JENSEN VM9311TS
    Pair of Speakers & Tweeters for front: Polk Audio db6500
    Amp: Infinity Reference 5761a
    Subs: Two Alpine SWE-1242


    Any input would be appreciated...


    Also, I am only going to be running one pair of speakers in the front because someone told me that is all you need when you listen to rap because the subs take car of the rest and you only need two speakers for vocals.


    Thanks for any help.

    How much room can you give up for a box? Those type e's are okay.. but there's more out there to give you that "bass" you're looking for. Those things wont be able to do a whole lot on the lows for rap.

    Also, should post a budget too.
