    New Speakers

    I am looking to put a new set of speakers in my new 08 Tundra. Looking to see what you all perfer. The front speakers are 6x9's but there are plenty on adapters out there to change sizes. I have it narrowed down to either the Boston SL60's which are 6.5 components or the SL95's which are 6x9's.

    Re: New Speakers

    I definately recomend comps. vs 6X9, a round speaker will produce a much better sound than an oval speaker. I personally like the CDT line but Boston is also nice.

    HU- Alpine CDA-9831
    Sub-RE Audio-SR12”
    Amps- Alpine MRV-F450 & MRD-M301
    Speakers- CDT CL-62, 2 way comp. & CL-6 Midrange
    Vehicle- 2004 Toyota Rav 4

    Re: New Speakers

    What are you going to be amping them with? What kind of budget do you have?

    Re: New Speakers

    If we're talking Pioneer speakers, I've heard good things about these:

    http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_...S-C720PRS.html

    That amp you have can be bridged to 250w x 2 channels, so definitely do that, and any component set you get will have plenty of power, and will get plenty loud, and sound clean doing it!

    The Rainbow SLC 265 Kick's would be a good choice, too.

    I believe CDT makes some good speakers in that price range, but I haven't heard them myself.

    Re: New Speakers

    I've got a set of SL60s in my Tacoma running on 125x2. Major improvement on the Infinity Ref comps they replaced. Just ordered a set of Pioneer TS-D1720Cs, so in a couple of weeks I'll be able to compare the two sets..

    Re: New Speakers

    I have the Pioneer Rev 6x9's in my rear deck. They sure are nice.

    I was going to get the boston's though. They are nice too. Not as much bass though.

    I'm going to buy this same amp in a couple days and also am looking for a 6.5 comp set. I'm not sure what kind of power my comps should have using this amp? -60ish?? I do not want to bridge my amp because later I'll be adding rears which will need some juice.

    I have a couple in mind so far -

    1 -PG RSd65cs (nice and cheap) http://www.onlinecarstereo.com/CarAu...roductID=17540

    2 - CDT Audio EF-61NEO/DRT-25 PRO - CDT Audio 6.5" (WOULD 90 RMS BE OKAY FOR THESE????) http://www.woofersetc.com/index.cfm?...roduct_ID=4894

    3 - CDT Audio CL-61 - CDT Audio Classic 6.5" 2-Way Component Speakershttp://www.woofersetc.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=product.display&Product_ID=10 88

    4 - ?????????????????????????????

    Really don't know what to get. Help please!!

    Scarney did you buy a set yet?
