    New here, have a few questions

    Does Alpine make good comps? I remember LONG AGO when i had a set in my car they sounded decent. Also looking into rainbows, powered by either a zapco or arc audio amp. Thinking of just throwing 2 sets of comps in the car, front and rear. Dont know how that will work out. Any suggestions would be helpful.

    Re: New here, have a few questions

    I was thinking of going with the rainbow cs 265 profi vanadiums, but should i throw 2 comp sets in my car? I know you should only have the comps up front, but just wondering if it would sound good if i put 1 up front and 1 in the back. What amps should i look into, would Zapco Ref750.2 175x2rms be good enough for this set. Or Arc audio 2300se 330x2?

    I guess as far as imaging goes it would be better to just have one set of comps up front. I hope they can still get loud!!

    Will do, i know theres dealers here so shouldnt be a problem. The rainbows on the other hand i would have to go on everyones opinions, which seem to be very good. The question is should i throw 2 sets of comps in my car (front/rear) or just one???
