    Need Some Advice

    Alright so here is my dilemma... I received a $200 gift card to SonicElectronix for my birthday. I currently badly need to replace the stock speakers in my doors, but I dont really want to invest that much in them, because the car just really isnt worth it. I also really would like to replace my head unit, currently I have an older Sony Xplod that came with the car that Ive tolerated up to this point, but I would like to get something with iPod/USB connectivity, decent EQ, etc.

    So far Ive been looking at expanding the budget slightly, so I could get something like the Kenwood KIV-701 and a pair of Alpine Type-E 6.5s.

    Mainly Im looking for something to tide me over till I get out of college and actually afford the cars, which currently, I daydream about someday owning.

    Ps. I saw a JVC KD-X80BT which was similar to the Kenwood in regards to rear usb, Bluetooth, and lack of a CD player (which in turn leaves my car less cluttered.)

    Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

    Edit: Well, seeing how I am unable to post links this could be a little tedious, but I appreciate anyone who is willing to have read this and offer advice, thanks!

    Re: Need Some Advice

    The specs on the precision powers recommend 130 watts rms per side, I am planning on running the 6.5's off of the head unit for the forseeable future. Any recommend the polk db651's?

    Re: Need Some Advice

    I don't particularly care for the Kappa's metal tweeter, its a little harsh for my liking. Also, I'd really rather stay with coax's because of convience of install. I don't intentionally keep trying to be obstinate, truly, lol.
