    ok, and would you happen to know exact speaker sizes for an 03 cts. non bose. cant seem to find a solid answer. what i found was front door 6.5, rear door 5.25 and some say rear door 6.5. im guessing it has a 9 or 10" sub in rear deck. also are the pillar tweets replaceable without losing the covers? sorry op for jumping in but in kinda the same boat as you and check out the link i gave to the pioneer. seems like the best deal around as far as i have found.

    Re: Help buying a DVD receiver?

    Are these viable options?

    amp, Power Acoustik GT4-400

    front speakers, Pioneer TS-A1305C
    5-1/4" 2-Way TS Series Component Car Speakers System

    np, I looked at the Pioneer AVH X4500BTI just cant see getting one that doesn't have navigation, for the same money as one with navigation. unless there is something bad about the Jensen?
    Will it crap out on me?

    How much are we talking to get a decent quality receiver/amp/component set? I don't think the budget can go much past that point.
    Do you recommend another brand in the same price point?

    thanks bud. hope my os phoenix gold zero point mids fit and got a set of os gefco hart professional 5.25s i can throw in the rear doors. thinking of trying a pro audio midbass in the sub location with a baffle run at about 40hz to 3-500hz. should give me loads of midbass and as long as i keep it under 500hz it shouldnt pull from front stage.

    Yeah, that pioneer is the other receiver that I have been comparing to. Those components and amp are way out of budget though.

    Would passing on an amp and allowing the component speakers to hooked up directly to the deck work?

    Re: Help buying a DVD receiver?

    I don't actually have a "budget", just want to be able to get the best bang for the buck.

    surely the power acoustik amp would have to be better than just running it off the deck though.

    Clarion VX401 6.2" In-Dash Double DIN Stereo w/ Bluetooth and USB
    you can get this clarion and always down the road get the navi upgrade which i would do over the jensen
    Clarion NP401 "Black Box" Add-On Navigations System for VX/VZ401 - Royalty Studio
    which is this

    or


    JVC KW AV50 KWAV50 in Dash 6 1" Double DIN Touchscreen DVD CD MP3 Car Receiver | eBay
    the jvc with also the same idea as it is also navigation ready down the road. with 4v pre outs which is really nice

    and getting the radio through sonic electronics includes the installation accessories for both items

    Re: Help buying a DVD receiver?

    Still looking for a set of 5 1/4 components and an amp reasonably priced, if the ones that I posted are not good options.

    amp, Power Acoustik GT4-400

    front speakers, Pioneer TS-A1305C
    5-1/4" 2-Way TS Series Component Car Speakers System

    As for the Clarion and JVC receivers that were posted. They look like they would be inferior to the pioneer 2400BT. Which is the option for non-nav Receiver atm.

    comps....here is a couple nice budget sets.
    Infinity Reference 5030CS 5 25 inch Way Component System Car Speaker Pair 506671103830 | eBay
    Maximo 5 Morel 5 25" 2 Way Pro Car Component Speakers | eBay
    New Phoenix Gold RSD5CS 5 25" Car Component Set Speakers Tweeters Crossovers RSD 083713069281 | eBay

    i have a bnib eclipse 3520 that would be a nice lil amp for your comps. i could hook ya up for $65 shipped on the amp. this and the infinity comps would be a total of $165 to your door. probably best bang for the buck you will find bro. i have a set of ref 6.5" comps i ran and liked them.... or for even less grab the phoenix gold rsd's and total would be $142

    here is the amp
