    best speaker/amp setup

    What would be the best possible speakers and amp to power the speakers I can buy for $600?

    Total of 4 speakers
    I have a mazda3 hatchback
    I have a 12" type R sub already
    No headunit...yet

    looking for some people to point me in the right direction

    Re: best speaker/amp setup

    600$ for just speakers and an amp. Thats a pretty hefty budget. You could get plenty of nice sets of comps and an amp to power them for half that.



    HU: Alpine 9887
    Subs: 4x SA10s
    Amp:Audioque 3500.1 at .5

    Well I want them to be good, and I would rather just throw the money down now and get something nice to hold me over for a couple years.

    Noob question...I would only buy one set of comps...which is 2 speakers.
    What would I do for the rears?

    well, I'm a noob as well, but if you would read a bit on the web (this site, and others) the consensus is that rear speakers are a waste of time/money/effort. do a search on "rear fill" and see what you get.

    Re: best speaker/amp setup

    well now it seems like it makes sense to buy **** rears...and spend all my money on comps and an amp for that

    does it really make sense to buy rears or no

    it seems like it makes sense all my money will go to the comps now...can you really tell a difference if the rears are stock?

    There's $440 with $60 left to spare for some wire.

    Oops, didn't realize you need power for the sub too. You'll need 4 channel:

    http://www.shopatron.com/products/pr...55639.0.0.0.0?

    It's going to be hard with that 12, but bridge the rears for the sub and power the OE rear speakers off the HU if you need rear fill. If not, just unhook them. That'll eat up the rest of your money. That 12 is going to want a lot of power.
