    Pioneer 80Prs worth it if..

    Is the Pioneer 80Prs worth the extra cash it if i dont run a active setup?

    Is it possible to put together a nice 2way setup for $200 or less?

    I think so, its still a nice unit if running active or not.

    Yes. You can do a nice 3 way front stage for under 200
    @keep_hope_alive ;
    Hands down has the most SQ and best sounding front stage on this forum and his front stage was under 200
    My 3 way front stage was picked out by him and I spent $190. My tweeters were the most expensive part of my front stage.
    @TaylorFade ; is another SQ guy. And he will tell you the same thing.

    Look into buying raw drivers. They are the same quality as this stupid component sets you buy that come with a companies name on it.


    And yes. The 80PRS is a great deck. I ran it as a passive deck. Still gives you tons of control.

    $200 including the deck? Or do you mean just the drivers? Because if it's just the drivers, that's no sweat. And yes... the 80 is worth it. It's feature rich outside of the active crossovers.

    some people like it, others dont. if you have ran pioneers in the past and enjoy the sound, stick with it. every company has a different "sound". whether it be warm, accurate, analytical, etc, stick with what your ears like.

    I have one coming. Not going to be running active for now.

    I hate pioneers and just got rid of my pioneer DD but hopefully the 80 will make that change.

    And getting something that sounds good for under $200. That depends on what you think sounds good is. If you're use to coaxials you can be happy. If you want SQ and output then $200 isn't going to cut it

    My first thoughts was THIS for the woofers and THESE for the tweets.

    Those look like awesome choices to me!
    The only problem I see is that the peerless 6.5s you picked at 8 ohms. Do they make a 4 ohm version?
    Most 2 or 4 or 6 channel amps don't put out much power at 8 ohms.
