    Cheapest comp set humanly possible

    Lmao, I'm in search of ideas of some super cheap 6.5s and tweets for my Tahoe that I finally got running.

    They just need to be able to get loud enough over a simple sub setup.

    Also I don't care if they are sold separately as long as they can come near a jbl p660c set or near it for the cheaps.

    I won't be running a amp just yet as i am still looking into how I will mount the comp and sub amps and how the wiring will be run.

    I've never had this much space for a setup so it's hard to pick how I am gonna do it all.

    Might have to check these out also.. hopefully better mid bass then my p660c did.. for the price of the jbl they got loud and clear, but lacked the mid bass I wanted.

    Anything Harmon is good for cheap. You can find some deals on close out that might move you up a bracket.

    Loud and midbass you need to choose one.. You cant have both unless you do a 3 way setup or a two way with a lot of cone area and power along with proper deadening/acoustical treatments.

    I didn't mean full on feeling the bass at 45hz and above but more of door have some kind of midbass that u feel 3 inches away lol.. but then again I didn't go all out on my truck doors with vinyl and deadener.

    My new setup will be active so may end up doing some sundown 6.5s later on for midbass in doors.

    then just do 8/10 inch PA speakers now and do two in each door in the future. Get sh*t done now, get sh*t prepared in the future. Kill two stones with one bird. (yes hit the stones that hard with a bird)

    45hz is not midbass and should never be considred midbass lmao. midbass 60hz-80hz and above. with PA speakers you'll be lucky to get 80hz - 100hz action but you'll be several times louder than any component set can ever dream of. I wouldnt recommend any guy with a moderate to serious sub setup to ever components. They just dont hang. If they do hang that means you arent loud.
