    Component set or 6 1/2 2 ways?

    I'll be running the speakers off the H/U for lack of front stage preouts. Now should I just go with a good set of 6 1/2's or go with a component set? It'll only be getting around 20 rms sooo, You're opinions please. Also, What brand and price.

    Amp - undecided, help plz
    H/U - Kenwood Excelon x779
    Wiring - Lots of 1/0 gauge, where should I buy from?
    Box Specs - Dunno yet

    word.

    if you ever plan to upgrade to an amped front stage it would be cheaper to buy comps now, but they won't sound great off HU power. If your not a front stage kinda guy coax's would be a better choice. As far as brand, go listen to a few.

    yea x2, you wouldnt get what you could out of components off of a h/u, they would sound just like the 6.5's, it would just be a waste of money to buy a 100- 180 dollar set of components and get the same sound out of a set of walmart 6.5's,


    a good recommendation tho would be a set of pioneer 6.5's, they sound pretty good with little power and kinda " try" to get loud



    -system-
    Headunit - 06 Kenwood kdc-mp5028
    Front Components - Diamond Audio w/ Alpine tweeters
    Full Range Rear- Pioneer 6.5 3-way
    Component Amp - Orion Cobalt 110x4
    Subs - 1 MA audio 15 ma150xe *might get 3 more if like*
    Box - 4.3^ft vented to 32hz
    Sub Amp - Ma Audio 1889i (900wRMS@2)
    Wires - Rockford Fosgate
