I currently have JL VR comps up front and coax in the rear, 6.5" all the way around. I want to get rid of the rear speakers, as I like the way things sound better without them.
My subs are JL Audio 12w6v2's (2 of them) and a 1000/1 JL amp.
My mids amp is a JL 300/4
Keep in mind I am sticking with nothing but JL here, flame away, but I like em', and have since way back in the day!
Quesiton 1- Would the ZR line that is coming out overpower my subs, meaning, are they more meant to couple with the w7's? Should I just go ahead and get the XR 6.5" comps set as a better match for my subs?
Question 2- In my front speaker location, there is about 6-8" of space between the speaker and the actuall speaker grill/door pannel. It seems to me that this would allow a lot of the sound to escape the car, and end up in the actuall door pannel. My stock speakers had a rubber surround around them that butted up to the acutuall grill on the door. SHould I do this with my comp set as well? Or would it be better to build a baffle that extends the speakers out to the door pannel's speaker grill... or be just fine the way it is?
I will bridge the 300/4 to 150 watts x2, so the power will be there for no matter what speakers I go with.
