    HU = JBL GTO's

    Amped = REV's

    I've used both and the JBL's sounded very nice off the HU, never got to amp them. I run REV's now and they get very loud amped.

    Alpine Type S have good bass response and would work well as a budget fill

    +1234 with either amped or unamped.

    How about some cheap midbass drivers? Less high end frequencies to steal soundstage. And how did you blow Polk?!? I'm running my MMC's and beating the ever living **** out of them and they are taking it like champs.

    Good question. My experience with Polk, will take a pounding and still sound very clean. As for rear fill, I also like Alpine Type S. Run them in my car for rear fill.

    Buy the same speakers for the rear as you have up front. You would not mix left and right speakers, would you? Think about it.

    Re: New rear fill speakers....wtb?

    if they are just rear fill speakers , buying the same as the front stage would not be wise. For one if you have comps up front putting comps in the rear is totally useless and two you can get away with a cheaper speaker in the rear as it is just being used as a filler.

    I personally run JBL GTO speakers as they are cheap and work perfect for fill. Mellow highs with nice mid responce.



    1988 Ford Ranger Supercab:

    Headunit: Kenwood EZ700SR
    Front Stage: SoundStream EXC4.1 Components
    Rear Fill: JBL GTO8626 6x8
    Hi Amp: Blaupunkt PCA460 60x4 rms
    Sub: Infinity Perfect 12.1
    Box: 1.3ft Sealed
    Sub Amp: Sony XM-D1000P5 500x1 @4ohm rms
