    Got a Kicker 600.4. Should be ~ 300w X 2 @ 4 ohm. I would let it go for about $150. Missing the shroud though. Brand new and never used it is missing the shroud though. Just a thought

    Re: need 5.25 comps for around 200-250$

    ebay, ewwww, im not an ebay fan really, i like companies with their own websites,

    this is alittle more expensive, but etronics is reputable

    http://www.etronics.com/product.asp?...36a&svbname=30

    now i am going to be running a full alpine system soon enough so i have a 4 channel amp picked out to run the alpine 6x9's but hmm h/o lemme find an amp

    this is an alpine amp, usually good to stick with the same brand if u can this peak of those speakers are 160 this amp is 80 watts a channel @ 4ohms

    http://www.etronics.com/product.asp?...ore=&catid=303

    heres a site witha pic on it http://www.onlinecarstereo.com/carau...roductID=12399

    if not that, heres a rockford fosgate one

    http://www.etronics.com/product.asp?...ore=&catid=303

    this one is 75 watts x 2 @4ohms thats your other cheaper alternative it also has less power. other ppl just double check about that alpine amp make sure it isnt too much power, although i believe it would be fine

    Re: need 5.25 comps for around 200-250$

    I was looking at some 5.25's from Image Dynamics. I hear they make great speakers. I decided to go with some 6.5s instead after I was told, "there's only so much you can expect from a 5.25" speaker." I'm sure something from Image Dynamics would be excellent though =)!

    polk in my eyes is no comparison to alpine. you are better off fitting what size is currently in your door, unless ur a competitor, and u want to do special things, the 5.25 wont have as much bass, but it shouldnt be that notiable. like i said go with what fits. i dont know much about image dynamics, but i havent heard any complaints. go out to a car audio store and listen to their different speakers, this is the best way to find what you like, then go home and order online.

    Re: need 5.25 comps for around 200-250$

    A lack of midbass will actually be huge. I like my stereo to sound like a good home stereo. Without midbass in the front speakers all the bass will sound like it is behind you. I would fit the largest speakers possible in the front even if you have to make custom mounts. It will be worth the extra effort to get a better staged system.

    I run a cdt comp set and I recommend them. thezeb.com

    If getting a profile amp, get thezeb.com to pricematch ikesound.com. You could get a nice the CA440 for less then $70.

    nobody around here sells alpine is the thing, we got like a best buy, circuit city, and a shop that sells JL, and another that sells eclipse.

    i'd like to hear those speakers before i buy them is the only thing. im going to go listen to the eclipse today and find out how much
