This is something that I've heard ALOT of since I've joined this forum and started doing some reading and I'm debating wether I should do this or not. It's hard to consider my car without rear speakers but if I can do without and still have it sound good then why not? Now my understanding is that if I do go this route then I need to have a good amount of money set aside for good comps for the front. Right now I'm looking at Infinity Kappa Perfect 5.1 5 1/4 and I've read that CDT component speakers are awesome as well. I'm going to be running off an alpine deck and will no doubt be getting an amp to power the set. Just in case it matters I listen to house, trance, breabeats, and rock. At this point as far as the bass goes I'm looking into getting 1 12 in Alpine Type R sub with a 500 Watt Mono amp to start with. I'm more into SQ rather then SPL but do want feel some bass, some of the music I listen to does have some pretty sick bass lines.
My goal: a well balanced system!!
Budget: No more then 400 on component speakers... even thats pushin it...
Oh I should mention to that I do drive a small car... a geo prizm.
