    Re: system help-{noob}

    get the kicker amp. JL is a good, but overpriced. What is your price range? You can find many goodies if you have a good price range.

    SLC's are great speakers. The setup you suggested yourself is actually pretty good.

    No need for rear fill in a coupe. Spend that money on the front stage and a nice 2-channel amp. Ditch the rears altogether.

    How about this?

    Front comps: Rainbow SLC 265 Kicks about $280
    Comps Amp: Blaupunkt VA4100 $160
    Comp Active Xover: ICBM-7212 $40
    Rears (run off HU): Pioneer REV TS-D691R $110

    TOTAL: $590 (+ wiring, deadening, etc if needed).

    I agree with Hintzy, if you can swing a sub and amp now, do it. No need for rear fill at all.

    especially when the SLCs come with crossovers anyway. I doubt that this kid is quite ready to go active yet. So yeah:

    Pioneer TS-C720PRS: $250 all over ebay
    Diamond D3 400.2: $270

    Puts you at $520 with great equipment. Save up another $200 and you can build yourself a decent substage.

    From what I can gather, that xover is the same as the Profile RX30R (most of these likely come out of the same buildhouse out of China and are based around the same PCB design...just the aesthetics are different). For a budget/starter acive xover, I'd trust it.

    But Hinty you do make a good point... the passives that come with the comps would be sufficient.

    Sorry, I'm just on an active setup kick right now since I've been researching and understanding what the benefits are.

    Yeah, i hear ya. I'll be putting in my first active setup soon providing I can figure out my Alpine 3672. It's an active crossover from Alpine's glory days (Japanese Goodness ). Problem is it does 2/3way front, 2way rear, and sub and I only need 2way front!!! Trying to figure out how to overcome the frequency gaps and how to proprly set it up is confusing me.

    Hehehe I know what you mean and that's why I'm going to stick with 2-way front + sub for my active. lol
