    Comp set

    Should I purchase one? Will they be necessary? If I do, I would want a fosgate 400-4 or a fosgate prime 300-4. What *preferably JL, Fosgate, or Kicker* comps should I get if I do? thanks.

    Re: Comp set

    look around before you decide to buy jl, fosgate or kicker comps, yes having a nice set of speakers will & can make a difference.

    4 what? Not 4 comp sets, right?

    1 comp set for the front and coax in the rear.

    Yes that is a 5 1/4th audiobahn mid speaker in my civic's headrest. circa 2006.

    Re: Comp set

    My max for an amp is 150. I will spend 130 on speakers. I've seen T1 speakers on ebay for 50 bucks before.

    T1


    http://cgi.ebay.com/Rockford-Fosgate...1%7C240%3A1318

    P1 speakers used.





    would those work for an explorer? >>>>>>> http://cgi.ebay.com/ROCKFORD-FOSGATE...1%7C240%3A1318




    I can get a used P400-4 for 150 or a Prime 300/4 brand new for around 150-160

    Re: Comp set

    A typical sub stage plays mainly around 20-120 Hz (& thats being generous), thats ~100 of the ~20,000 Hz distinguishable to the human ear. Having a good comp set/front stage is important, as it will handle the majority of the music you hear.
    Music is recorded in stereo (2 channels, L/R). Meaning, rear speakers are playing the same information as the fronts. Rear fill is not needed whatsoever. I'd suggest putting all of your budget up front in one pair of comps. If you must have rear fill, your stock speakers on hu power would suffice.

    I'd look into these sets within your budget...
