    your input needed!

    Hey guys, so I've got a 2007 PT Cruiser and just took out the factory HU and replaced it with the JVC KDHDR60. Sound is much better with the factory speakers, but I'm still not thrilled. Front and rear doors are both 6.5" so just wanted to get some opinions from you all. I'd really appreciate it alot and I'll gladly post a followup after i've got them installed. I've done some research and i'm considering the Infinity Kapp 652.9, Polk db651s, Infinity 6032si, and Alpine SPS-600c. I'm open to other suggestions as well. Thanks!

    Re: your input needed!

    nice, yeah I'm a student at FSU (go noles!). looking to be under $200 for both pairs. I was able to find the Infinity Kappas on amazon for $80 a pair which seems to be insanely cheap. But wanted to get a second opinion. I know running speakers without an amp can be iffy...

    Yeah I promise you it's a night and day difference between an amplified and headunit driven set. I'm not too familiar with the Infinity's though. I can tell you that I'm impressed with the "CDT" co-axials I recently purchased. [{Go Gators}] lol

    yeah, i know it's a big difference, just can't really afford an amp right now. I'm really liking the Kappa line because it has a built in crossover and seems to be a pretty highend model. Only thing I'm seeing is they require alot more power and they might not give me the detail i'm looking for. (according to the guy at Crutchfield) The HU puts out 20w/channel RMS while the speakers i'm looking at are 2-75w RMS. Is that probably a bad matchup?

    Re: your input needed!

    CDT ? you are easily impressed then lol

    on deck power do the Kappas.. then amp when you can

    leave the rears on deck power ( stock speakers ) and amp the fronts with the money you save buying just 1 set of mids

    If you're wanting to stay on a low budget I'd stay with 6.5'' coaxials in the front & rear. You should be able to find some nice ones that will sound alright on h/u power.

    What he's saying is that you should only invest in one set of components for your front stage and instead of buying a rear set buy a 2 or 4 channel amp to power the front set and it will be more impressive/louder/clearer than the 4 6.5" on headunit power!

    I didn't like the Infinity's I had a few years back, but I haven't heard the newer ones.

    Re: your input needed!

    and Matt is dead on with what I said

    you can do a small 2 channel amp and 1 set of good mids for the same price as 2 sets of decent coax...

    way louder
    way cleaner
    way better..
