    some quick questions

    whats up guys im kinda new to car stereo and stuff like that but i know a decent amount. Right now i have a 05 Malibu with a 06l712 with a zx750.1 amp and a pioneer premiere 590ib head unit.

    Lately ive been looking for a comp set up to buy in the near future and after some research so far i am pretty dead set for picking up a pair of rainbow cmx 265 kicks. Well besides any other comp recommendations, whats the best amp i could pick up to power these bad boys? Id prefer an amp with a lower budget but any recommendations are fine.

    and lastly ive heard that changing the rear deck speakers isnt as important as changing the front stage..what would be a smarter idea to switch them out or leave them as is and if switch them what would be recommended maybe a pair of pioneers? my front speakers are 6-3/4 and the backs are 6x9.

    thanks for the help!

    if your gonna have components up front and a Sub...The rears aren't all that important....you can just take them out or do whatever you want with them.

    Re: some quick questions

    For low budget, but decent amps, here's a couple:

    Profile AP1000 for $86: http://www.millionbuy.com/prfap1000.html
    Cadence TXA-3002 for $129 (free shipping): http://www.cadencestore.com/ProductC...&idproduct=382

    And you can also buy a refurnished Kicker kx450.2 for $160, includes a 90 day warranty: http://www.hifisoundconnection.com/S...id/0/SFV/30046

    If you want to spend a little more money, the Alpine PDX-2.150 is a sweet, tiny little amp: http://www.onlinecarstereo.com/CarAu...roductID=17193

    Can't go wrong with the recomendations above, but the best budget 2-channel I have seen is the Panasonic... 700 watts RMS total into 2-ohms for close to 100 clams.

    Re: some quick questions

    For those comps, you're going to want to give them around 2x175-250w rms to make them open up.

    Xenon X200.2

    ZX550.2

    Or, for the deal of the decade, head over the midwestelectronics.com (an authorized dealer) and pick up the Blau VA2200. Have some toilet paper handy when you see the price. These will do rated power and maybe a teensie smidge more (comes with a birth sheet and are CEA-2006 compliant). Review right here. You better jump on it quick though, as they are clearing out their stock and these might go fast now that I've posted it.

    2009 Kia Borrego EX 4x4
