hello everyone. i just joined this site and am trying to design a decent system for my 1996 Honda Passport. unfortunately, there isn't much room in the doors for anything bigger that a 4" and the rear has places for 4"x6" (euro cut) in enclosures mounted up on the rear ceiling. so, i guess i looking for good coaxial replacements to be powered by a PPI 50wx4 amp @ 4ohms. i also plan on a 12" JL sub powered by a PPI 300x1 amp @ 4ohms. so, as you can see i'm not trying to get crazy, just want good clean sound with adequate bass.
i've listened to the JL TR400CXi 4" coaxials and they sound nice, pretty decent mid bass for a 4". i have been looking at, but have yet to hear, the MB Quart RKC110 4" coaxials.
for the 4"x6", the local car stereo shop recommended the Kenwood KFC-X468C coaxials, which sounded better than the Alpines or the Bostons. however, they would require trimming the metal around the edges to get them to fit in the euro size 4"x6" openings. i've also been looking at, but also yet to listen to, the MB Quart DKD146's or the PPI 46.1's.
anyone have any suggestions on which 4" and 4"x6" would give the best sound at a decent price. i'm hoping to spend $200 or less for both sets. i want to use the factory locations and don't want to have to do any cutting of the speaker or door panels. thanks for any help you can give.
