    Good combination of comps and coaxes for a setup?

    What is one, or two? I want them to blend well with each other and live in a happy family of sound.

    Re: Good combination of comps and coaxes for a setup?

    well, there are a lot of questions that need to be answered before anyone can help you.

    what sizes of speakers are you looking for?

    what car will these be going in?

    what is your budget?

    do you have an amp already, or will you be buying one?

    also I assume you already have an aftermarket head unit. if you don't, definitely start by buying one.

    Re: Good combination of comps and coaxes for a setup?

    yeah, I am not the best person to ask, but those are some absolutely necessary pieces of info before anyone can suggest anything.

    hope I can help, if not some more experienced people on here will chime in as well

    Re: Good combination of comps and coaxes for a setup?

    alot of people just use comp's up front with coaxils in the back...

    but the same could be said with just comp's up front and no rear's

    Re: Good combination of comps and coaxes for a setup?

    if you have a substage, IMO you really dont need rears, as long as you have a nice comp set up front with a good amp powering them, you'll be all set

    Re: Good combination of comps and coaxes for a setup?

    yeah, I have comps up front and coaxes in the back, but I think the OP was looking for a specific pairing of speaker sets.

    my opinion on just fronts versus rear fill is the car and whether or not rear passengers are in the car often.

    in a 2 door car or a small 4 door, I would forget the rears. In a large 4 door car, it depends. I turn my subs off at night so I don't wake up neighbors and what not, so the rear fill is nice. I also have people ride in my back seat fairly often so the rear speakers help the sound for them too.

    Re: Good combination of comps and coaxes for a setup?

    I have a re hc on 1500 watts. and i like a full sound, plus i'd prolly put my comps in the door so placement wouldn't be ideal. i want rear fill.

    Re: Good combination of comps and coaxes for a setup?

    ok so whats your budget for 4 speakers?

    For the rear, look at the Pioneer REVs, super good coaxials for a good price, as for comps, check out Rainbow, Focal, MbQuart, Diamond, Polk, and PG

    And I would get a 4ch amp for the comps/coaxs, whats your budget for that?

    with that budget, Rainbow is probably going to be great for you. PM 6spdcoupe and he will sell you some.
