I know this is going to open a huge can-'o-worms - with almost everyone having a favorite "brand", etc. - but I am having such a hard time selecting what 6 1/2" components to run up front in my 2003 Chevy Monte Carlo SS. This is more-or-less a sound quality build ... My days of booomin' the sealed 12's in the trunk are over ... Now it is time to build them under the rear deck, & do it the right way ... (free air), ... etc. ...
I have looked closely at many:
Alpine Type S
Soundstream Reference Series (2-way set, NOT 3-way set)
Boston Acoustics SR60
Infinity - Kappa Component, Kappa Perfect, Kappa Reference
Polk db (I have had MANY Polk products in the past, & loved them all ...)
... And a few others ...
For various reasons, there are some brands I am not interested in, or for various reasons I have ruled out:
And, yeah, some others, ... BUT this does NOT mean I do not want to hear about 'em all. Whatever some of you have to offer, I will take the time to read 10 times over, ... promise.
Some rather important details:
I need at least a 1" tweeter, ... & then a 6.5" driver that can put out some amount of bass ... I understand there will not be a ton of bass no matter what, & I am going to be running two 12" subs, but I think I can find something out there.
I am able to install something "difficult" ... fiberglass, fab wood (mdf, bpw, metals, etc.) for the most part, or I can figure out how to do it. I have done some unique things in the past.
I want NO HOLES in the door skin ... everything needs to fit behind ... call it "stealth", if you will.
I crave great vocals ... Love to sing-along, but usually NOT in front of others!
They will be getting approximately 85-100 watts (per channel) of good, clean, capped power.
I do not know what more I can offer without rambling so much more that no one will make it much further, if they/you have made it here at all ...
FYI: Drivers will be well sealed, possibly in their own enclosures, if necessary, & the doors will be well-Dynamat'd. ... I am pretty sure I can answer anything else that may help lead to a great recommendation.
