    I think most people (including myself) would suggest you put the majority of the budget toward the front speakers, and get some coaxials for the rear. And run the rears off the HU.

    don't even bother with rear speakers. just get a comp set up front. if you must have rear fill, some $50 coaxils will work. no need for comps in the rear. with that said i would bridge that amp and go for a set of boston acoustic pros.

    Re: need comps

    should i deaden my doors even though i dont need the bass that much from my comps cause the subs play fine bass in mid and low, or should i just throw a layer in there to help reduce rattle and noise?

    Sound deadening will help your front stage immensely...trust me, I can't wait until I get around to deadening mine properly.

    yes deaden your door. help to improve midbass. also how many watts and was your door deadened when you had the pros? what didn't you like about them so we can help you find something you'll like more?

    sound deadening will make a world of difference no matter what set you go with. the quarts get mixed reviews. the local shop started selling quarts and i didn't like the tweets on them. too harsh imo, but this was in a sound board. comps i have used that i liked were DLS, CDT, and boston acoustics.

    that's the names of the companies www.cdtaudio.com look into the HD's. you might want to talk to djdilliodon on aim as he is an authorized cdt dealer and has great prices. also dls makes nice components. www.dls.se
