    help with components

    hey im looking for some 6.5" components and i cant decide...ive been talking with some other guys from another forum, and he told me not to really spend a ton on components becuase i will be wasting money becuase i really wont be able to tell a difference for what i want them for. im not going for an A+ sq system...when i get my subs im getting 2 15" RE MT's with an orion 2500d on each...i just want loud bass. so basically i want 2 sets of 6.5" components that'll just keep up with that much bass...i dont want the bass to like drown out the mids and highs. the guy ive been talking to has like a wall of 4 15" mtx 9500s and he has like 4 sets of audiobahn components glassed in his doors up front, he said they get really loud and he loves them. i just cant decide what to get, and i really wanna order them tonite or tomorow at the latest...im tired of waiting lol...heres some of the ones ive been looking at, i havent heard all of them, i just mostly take peoples word for it.

    kicker rs65.2
    diamond audio d661
    jbl gto
    infinity perfect 6.1
    orion p6.2(my friend has them)

    and today i was at circuit city and was just lookin and i was listening to the polk db6500's...they sounded pretty good i guess for the price(like 115 on ebay) but i just read a numerous reviews that said the highs are kinda harsh...and the crossover doesnt allow you to change it or something...

    but i really cant decide...and looking at the list i just typed, thats basically my price range(150-200 at most)...like i said im not going for a 1000 dollar set of Focal's or anything lol...

    but out of that list, which ones are best? also im not limited to whats on that list, make more suggestions please! lol

    last thing...basically all i want is loud highs(not harsh/too loud, but you know...loud enough), decent midbass(i wont have the subs for a while), and i just want them to get pretty loud without distorting. most of those components are 100w rms each, so most likely im gonna run an orion 8004 for both sets, unless they need more power then ill go from there...

    oh and both pair are going to be in the front of my explorer, one in the doors with the tweets in the top of the dash(defrost vents) and the other set will be glassed in the kicks.

    thanks!

    well i knwo you said you wanted cheap, id try and find some cheap horns and decent mids that are for sale. That would give you a mighty nice front stage for not to bad of a cost IMO.
