    Coax and comp ++ recommendations, JL 300/4

    I want to run a JL 300/4 amp in an 07 Honda Odyssey.
    I would like to run comps up front and based on the mounting
    locations, coax's in the rear. The rear will take a total of 4
    6.5 coax's. A set for the second row and a set for the 3rd row.
    With kids back there and the way the locations look, mounting
    tweeters is out of the question. Don't worry, volumes will be
    kept low with the crumb when the crumb crunchers back there.

    I want to run the 4 rear coax's crossed over at 80 or 100Hz and
    in parallel off the the 300/4. That should present the JL a 2 ohm
    load on channels 3 and 4. Also that meas the coax's will split
    the 75 watts per channel, for 37.5 Watts or so each.

    I'm trying to go cheap, but decent. I need to consider the relativily
    low power I am dealing with.

    I'm looking at the following coax's (2 sets of each):

    Boston Acoustics S65
    35 wrms
    $55

    http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_...stics+S65.html

    PG RSD coax
    60 wrms (but could do more)
    $59

    http://audiosavings.com/product_deta...2-133ce952abd6


    I am leaning towards the BA coax's. I think they will sound
    better on 37 watts.

    But here's the thing, I'm looking at the RSD comps for the
    front. It may be that I am not running enough power for
    RSD comps, but I like the price and have heard good things.
    Maybe the overall sound would be better off if I choose
    the RSD coax's in back. I'm also open to spending a maybe
    another $100 total on the comps and coax's together.
    ($310 instaed of $210).

    Here are the RSD comps
    120 wrms no problem, but I'll only have 75, how bad does that ****?
    $87

    http://audiosavings.com/product_deta...2-133ce952abd6

    I'm open to all suggestion in these price ranges.
    I'd like to run the 500/1 as well to a single sealed
    12w6 in the back. I want to stick with the 300/4 and
    500/1 because other than big 3 I do not plan on any
    other real power upgrades. Also those amps are small
    and should not get to hot. Also, I can get these amps
    used off the forum for $250 each all day long. I was
    considering the MB Quart 15 sealed at 1.5 cubes as
    well. I am very open to sealed single sub suggestions
    within the 500W 1.5 to 4 Ohm power consideration.
    12w6 is expensive. The ED's are on sale, but are they
    good??? Under 2 cubes sealed is what I have in mind.

    Why would you cross the coax @ 80 or 100Hz? It's a coax, let it take care of itself. BA is known to take alot power, but on the other hand, PG is known for that too.

    You could just bridge the amp for the front and leave the rears off deck power.

    I guess that could work. I could even get a 300/2 instead of a 300/4, it might
    even be cheaper.

    I don't think 6x9's will fit. Anyway mids and highs are the one place
    I fear going used
