    Suggestions?

    Ok heres the deal I'm looking to upgrade my soundsystem. I have a 2000 Civic running an Eclipse deck, through a 250/1 JL amp to 3 JL W0 10's. The bass is ok for all that I need now but I want to get some components for fronts. The things that I'm not sure about would be if a need a capacitor, I'm not sure how large my alternator is already. I don't think it's very big though. I was looking at either Boston Quart pros or MB Quarts for the fronts. I'm also looking at a 125/2 alpine amp. The only reason why I would get this setup is because I can get a killer discount otherwise I would go with some focals. If I do get a capacitor should I get 1 or 2 and how large of one should I get. If you have any other suggestions, I would appreciate your input.

    Ok first off Caps don't work. Second with only a 250/1 and a 125/2 amp, you shouldn't have anything to wrry about, although Civics typically have crappy power systems so you might be well off to upgrade your alternator or have it re-wound. Don't waste your money on a cap.

    ok, so if I upgraded my alternator what is a ballpark cost of it and install. Also I can get a pair of MB Quart 5 1/2 (because their oversized) PSd's for around $225 or should I get a pair of Infinity Reference 6 1/2 for around $80. I know the quarts are a better speaker but I'm not if their worth the difference in price.

    I can get the bostons for close to $300 but I'm not sure of the exact price. The only infinitys I can get are the reference on discount. I guess I would want to purchase from a retailer or a website instead of ebay.
