    Re: Component vs coax

    Personnaly I used a set of coax off small power (deck power) while my fronts weere amped. Couldn't tell if they wer eon or off in the front but made it nice for the rear passengers.

    From anything i have seenor read components in the rear will throw off the image of the stereo.

    Re: Component vs coax

    rear fill isn't necessary but i would go with coax's for the back, save money

    I am not a big fan of the typr R coaxials. Kicker on the other hand makes very decent ones. Eclipse and polk are decent too.

    So you need componets for the front, coaxils for the rear and an amp to drive them all?

    Sounds like you will have a nice setup and some money left over

    Re: Component vs coax

    Type r's arent that good at all from what I have read on here. Seems like you could probably install these yourself too and save some money.
