Thanks but i really do appreciate all info
help Tell me about Zapco St-4X someone has a bid going for only $100 and its new. Only have 2 days.
MB Quart still make nice stuff or are they crap too. I remember they use to have very nice sounding speakers. Not sure about there amps
The entry line at that price will be badged Asian for most brands. Zapco says their ST-X line uses the same op amps and caps as higher lines... but those are relatively cheap anyway - maybe a dollar vs. $.25. Still nice to have
Your hope is for "trickle-down" quality. That doesn't happen in your price range. They are using the cheapest of everything to hit that price point. I want your expectations to be realistic. At $500 you can get some trickle-down from $1000 products.
have you been helped by me? i'd love to know. shoot me a PM.

Is this Adam. Hi how are you. Yes we did. I appreciate your help. I know Zed is good stuff but I just can afford that. Did you read my post and do you have any comments or suggestions?
This is what my main problem is. Like you said "don't get caught up buying a company because the name of it is popular and than you get them and realize you could have gotten something so much better for your money" That is my worst fear that scares me. Like I said in other post is that I remember the old days and in last many many years things have changed. Some of the classic brands I remember are no longer good. I am totally confused. I feel it was more cut and dry back in the day. You really had distinct categories, high end good stuff , medium ok stuff, and down right junk. Today the equipment that was good is no longer. And what is good you don't know.
This is why I signed up here for help and the get info from audio people that work in business and go to car shows and see first had. I have been reading all the comments on my post and researching the brands. Yes I do read ALL your posts and research all the recommendation
One of my ideas I had was. I thought that Alpine was a good brand and some on this post said that there ok not bad. So I have my 2 Alpine head units in the truck now and maybe I could just match everything up and just go with all Alpine, I have thought of that. They have some decent prices on speakers and amps. The only thing I am keeping is the Bass Kicker Substations, they still work well and they don't take up much room. What does everyone think of that ?
My idea of going with all Alpine. On that list of Bad, Questionable, Good, Highest Quality, I see Alpine was in the good category. I have been looking at that list and reaching the brands. I think that is were i am at. Good quality at a reasonable price.
Does everyone agree?
Stupid me You know I forgot what size speakers I have Dose any one know of hand. 04 Tacoma X-Cab. In front doors I have the version with factory door panels that had the set up for mid and tweeter openings and what about the rear, I though they were like 6x8 or maybe 4x6 i don't remember
holy hell theres alotta reading in this thread!!!!
H.U. - Pioneer P7200HD
Fronts - Pioneer premier TS-C720PRS
Rear - Pioneer TS-D6902R
Amp - kx2500.1
Sub - AQ HDC4 12
just a lil' slam for now.... tuned to 33hz!!!!!
complete budget system under 400.00... (kenwoods)
ok ok every one. I think i found what I want. Zapco amps Comments please For my setup. I can us the ST-4X for the componet speakers in front and the 6x8 in rear panel Then I can use the ST-2X for the 2 kicker 6 1/2 substations. I was reading Zapco web site and he has a section where he explains all the tech stuff including how Zapco amps differ from many others and how they rate the RMS power. And also how Zapco amps can put out more then the RMS. They are in the High quality list
Also I looked on line and found tha Zapco amps to be affordable.
Then all I have left to do is find some quality sounding speakers Front components and then a pair of full rage in back for fill in. Speaker have to be the same brand all around I want them to match and sound good
