    Alpine Type-R 6.5s or JL XR 6.5s?

    I'm getting kickpanels for my accord doors and was wondering if I keep my Type-r components or switch to JL XR 6.5s? If going with the XR 6.5s, I will most likely get the JL 300/4 amplifier. My type-r components are currently being powered by an Alpine PDX-4.100.

    I'm looking to see which system would sound better. I think the kickpanels will make a big difference between my stock panels.

    Any suggestions?

    Re: Alpine Type-R 6.5s or JL XR 6.5s?

    really? those jl components will be better than my type r components? what about the amp? the pdx or the 300/4?

    also, im actually keeping the 6.5s in my stock door and the kickpanel actually has a set of 5.25 xr jls on it already. i was thinking of getting rid of my rears and pdx and use jl everything.

    my original plans were following:
    Type-R 6.5s in stock door.
    JL XT 5.25s in kickpanels
    Get JL 6x9s or Alpine 6x9s in rear.
    Use PDX to power the 5.25s and the rear and my RF Punch 550.2 to power the R 6.5s

    or

    JL 6.5 XRs in stock doors
    JL 5.25 in kickpanels
    JL 300/4 to power them
    JL 6x9s in rear with a small amp to power those....

    Basically, i can switch the Type-R 6.5s with the JL 6.5s easily, but getting another amp is a pain so I figured getting rid of the rears would be best option.

    I hate choosing...

    if you like JL then go with C5 they are better than XR, a lot softer and JL V2 amp are nice.

    From JL, ZR is best. The C5s are nice, too. Heck, the XRs sound pretty good.

    I have Type-R 6x9s, and I love them. They get super loud, while staying very clear.

    well another friend may buy my jl 300/4. i think ill just go get type-r 6x9s and keep my pdx to power type r 6.5s and 6x9s. need to trade or sell my rockford fosgate punch 550.2 to get smaller amp to power the jl 5.25.
