    Which components would you get?

    If you had 2 to 300$ to spend on a pair of 6.5 inch components
    which ones would you go with?

    I have read so manoy articles and reviews that I am more confused
    then when I started looking. Would really appreciate your advice gentlemen.

    A consensus of at least two of the same opinions would be extremely helpful

    My recommendation for your system on the amount you have to work with (if you are going for great sound over
    what it looks like)

    Head unit - the alpine cde-123 doesn't look the best or have the greatest features with it, but it
    blows away anything near its price range in sound quality..

    Sub - the sundown subs are some if the best out there for the price. But I would consider the JL Audio 3w2 I believe its called.
    If you get a decent sub, having plenty of quality watts to push it makes all the difference. Getting a solid amp
    to power the sub is going to be the hardest part on your budget. A new amp that will do the job good that is brand new
    is going to take over 50% of your budget at least. Look around for used ones.
    My advice? Join in on other threads and talk to other people, there are some cool people on here that will
    help you out. Don't just post when you have a ? for yourself

    Amp - just read about an amp that you can get for $180 that is really surprising for all it will do for the price.
    The Boston acoustics 2200. It's 4 channels, don't remember all the specs, but I'm buying one. It can do 900 watts
    when bridged and power a sub well, or push 4 or 2 high quality speakers

    Speakers - Most important decision you will make in the system. You Must Get Component Speakers.
    A lot of full range speakers are nice, but components are on a completely different level. For these I would
    be patient because you will most likely have to buy used, but well worth it.

    Apologies for the novel, but I hope some of this advice was helpful

    I only see 2 options if you are set on doing it with 300

    1. Get on EBay and other sites with used gear. The stuff on here is probably too high end for your budget. But I have seen
    2 12 inch kicker's as well as Alpine's in boxes with amps included for 250-300

    2. Buy the JL w3 amp which is about a 100 and is the best sub in its price range easily. Also buy the box, do A Lot of research on it because its the most
    Important aspect to how good the system will sound. Have some patience and get the amo next paycheck

    Re: Which components would you get?

    @$300 you should look into piecing together your own. I've own all types over the years and I'm just as happy with my pieced together component sets as I was with some of the high dollar sets. currently rocking some Cadence and would gladly put them up to any set on the market, spent $200 for 4 of their CVL 6.5 and a pair of 1" ZRS tweeters. IMO these sound better than the QSDs that I had a while back which I believe are the cleanest sounds component sets ever. just my opinion.

    Save your money and get yourself Morel Maximo's, for $200 they are a steal. I auditioned alot of sets before buying mine and the only one that sounded better near that price range was H.A.T. Imagine's but they were $100 more than the maximo's.

    JBL MS-60C (about $200)

    or open box Hybrid Audio Unity (see here if the deal still exists for $300, normal price is $400)

    If you wait until the holidays, I am 90% sure there will be $300 or lower deals on JL Audio C5 speakers, which are also good.

    If I had to spend $300 on a set of component speakers right now, my first choice would be to check on the HAT Unity deal. The cheaper HAT Imagine speakers in the same link are also very good, but you _have_ to use them with an active crossover. The built in crossover network does not tame the tweeter enough in my experience. Past that, the JBLs are supposed to be a good value. There is a review of them and the hat unity on talkaudio.co.uk

    I have the ID XS65's and they are awesome! Very loud and super clear. I power them with a ID 4 channel amp.
