    Coming back into Car Audio, help me on my new front stage.

    Ok here is the background story. I ran 2 sets of JL XR 6.5" Components in my old bmw, alpine 9887 HU, memphis mca5004 on the mids/highs.

    What I want now, is a component set superior to what i had before with both component sets. If not, then as long as it is better then the old set of xr's in volume, clarity, etc.....

    I just got a alpine iva-205 from a buddy of mine and he gave me a set of jl xr 5.25 component CROSSOVERS only.......

    1. Is the Alpine IVA-205 capable of running active if i ever decided to experiment with that??
    2. Can I make my own set of components based off the crossovers I currently have? Or will i not be able to get the sound I want from these crossovers?
    3. My girl works at BBUY so i can get a good deal on some stuff i need, some things they dont carry..... I'll probably get a four channel from them and bridge it most likely.

    BTW, the new vehicle is a lincoln aviator......

    Less then $500 for sure. I was thinking around $300 or so though. But I'm in no rush so I can pay more if need be.

    I forgot the guys name who I talked to about those, he said he thought they wouldnt have enough "volume" for me. have you personally heard those before? i think he was a cdt dealer as well. its just so hard to pick out components and pay soo much money and have never heard them before. i wish i could hear these in person.

    THe W205 isn't active capable.

    No need to use the crossovers if you buy a proper component set. It will come with some. Alpine Type-R are an option if you can get them at cost.

    Speakers will only sound a good as the install. If you want it to sound great, spend more effort on install than speakers.



    have you been helped by me? i'd love to know. shoot me a PM.
