I listen to hip hop, jazz/vocal, rock, and electronic mostly. I have had a "15 rockford fosgate punch running with stock speakers in different cars, at one point with 2,000 watts going through it. I am over the ridiculous "disconnected" sounding bass that you get from a sub so I do not plan to run one. On top of that, I could use to save the space and weight. I am thinking that some hitting rear deck speakers should be plenty for me. I don't have any budget yet but I am thinking I would like to spend no more then $100 for all 4 speakers. I am thinking I will buy the rears first to save money.
My car has "4 in front and 4x10 in rear stock. I am told that 6x9s are an easy fit and maybe better then the 4x10s in the rear.
I just purchased this:
Sony DSX-S200X Digital media receiver at Crutchfield.com
I also have an Eclipse 3650 amp, specs for which are:
The car is wired for an amp in the rear already, though the power wire is only like in between 1/4 and 1/2". I don't really want to put the effort into running wires back to the front from the amp so I was thinking of having the head unit power the 4" speakers in the front.5/4 channel power amp with channel flex crossover plus subsonic filter
40x4 at 4 ohm
120x1 at 4ohm
2ohm stable design
channel flex xover
Adjustable high-pass frequency (50-200hz for front)
high-pass frequency (120 for rear
Adjustable low-pass frequency (50-200hz for subwoofer)
Can I bridge the Eclipse for 2 more powerful channels (*do I want to do such a thing?) to just power the rear speakers?
What speakers would you recommend that come in the sizes needed? I don't need anything super fancy. I don't want to spend a lot of money, but surely for $100 or less there should be something worth purchasing over the stock '80s speakers.
