    comp vs coax

    is there that huge of a difference? i have some pretty crappy speakers in my car right now and i'm a bit on a budget system so would i be fine with coax speakers? or should just **** it up and buy the comps?

    Re: comp vs coax

    What kind of HU?
    What kind of amp?
    What kind of vehicle?
    Factory tweeters or locations?

    Re: comp vs coax

    right now i'm in the process of picking out a system so the hu and amps are still undecided. i haven't gotten much help from people on here so far so it's been a bit difficult to get some answers as i am new to all of this.

    i can tell you that it is an 87 sedan accord with everything stock. tells you how much my sound *****. so with that said no locations for tweaters. i would have to pre fab holes

    Re: comp vs coax

    Alrighty, then it sounds like component speakers are the way to go then if you are willing to cut some mounting holes.

    Yes, there will be an imaging advantage with components.

    What are your budgets for:
    1. HU
    2. Front Speakers
    3. Amp
    4. Sub

    Re: comp vs coax

    for everything and i mean everything. i'm looking to spend about 800- 1000. i want to do the install myself, i'm more of a diy kind of guy. all i'm really looking for in this system is clearness, a sub that hits pretty nice, and an hu with ipod interface.

    Or save even more money and get the TXA-6004 for $179, which does 4x150w @ 4 ohms or 2x600w @ 4 ohm bridged. Could run the comps off 2 channels stereo and the sub off the other 2 channels bridged.

    Out of those 3 subs, I'd go with the RSd12 in a sealed box.
