I just bought a 2011 GMC Sierra 1500 crew cab. I have never done any after market audio upgrades in my previous cars, mainly because I have never had a nice car. So I am looking to upgrade the 4 door speakers, and probably add an amp to power them.
I am not going to be putting a sub in, so I am wanting the best speakers I can buy, ones that will give me the full spectrum of sound...at least as much as 6-3/4 speakers will do.
I am wanting to leave the factory head unit in (unless this is a huge negative), but want to buy 4 door speakers and an amp (the doors hold 6-3/4 speakers). I am new to audio upgrades, but I am a good internet researcher...but before I go buying speakers and an amp based on my internet research...I wanted to come ask the pros around here.
Here are the 2 speakers options I have found to be well recommended:
1) JL Audio C2-650X
Best Internet Price: $103.95 (Retail $179.99)
RMS 15-60, Peak 100
2) Infinity 629I
Best Internet Price: $65.99 (Retail $129.99)
RMS 2-75, Peak 225
In my brief amp research, I have found this one to be well recommend, compact (fit under the front seat), good price, and will power both sets above:
1) Rockford Fosgate PBR300X4
Best Internet Price: $186.99 (Retail $229.99)
Am I on the right track here?
Any other speakers or amps to look at that might serve my interests better?
Thanks for any insight and help!
