    Re: Best Bang for the buck

    What exactly are you wanting to do?

    Are you saying that you are wanting to get a pair of 5.25s, a pair of 6.5s, and a pair of 6x9s?

    How will you be powering them?

    just get 6.5s with the money you'd have spent on all 3.

    Use the search to find the best 6.5s in your price range

    Re: Best Bang for the buck

    What is your overall budget for all these speakers and what kind of car?

    How will that help your power? If your running it off the HU it will be a huge waste to get a new alternator...Unless you have a lot of accesories and electrical things in your car. its like turbocharging a Geo Metro...don't see a point.

    x2, what is your price?

    Um...no. When it comes to speakers, more is not always better. In fact, in a car you want as simple as of install as possible to get optimal SQ. With all those speakers you'd be getting cancellation up the ying yang. Just go for a nice set of 6.5s. You'll be much happier. Are you looking for coaxial or component? And, again, what's your price range?

    Not true, with the proper signal processing, and proper crossovers you can do what he wants, but it's still a waste IMO, and setting up a 3 way system up front isn't that easy.

    It's hard for us to let you know what to look for, when you haven't said whether or not you want to run active, passive, if you want a 2 or 3 way front stage, coaxils? And you're crazy if you think you can run 3 sets of speakers off the HU and get a decent sound out of it.

    Agreed. If you want a very decent sound system, focus on just getting the following for now:

    Front Components
    Front Amp
    Sub(s)
    Sub Amp
