    Recommend setup

    I have a 2000 Corvette with Bose. I recently installed a Clarion NZ503 in-dash flip-out navigation unit. Now i'm looking to upgrade the rest. I'm more focused on SQ than SPL. In my other car I had the Rainbow SLC 265 Kick NG's and loved them. However, they are discontinued now.

    So what setup do you recommend. I'll be doing 6.5" all around with a single 10" subwoofer.

    I was thinking of getting the Diamond Audio SXP65s for the fronts, but I can't seem to find any good online retailers that carry their newer products. seems to carry a lot of discontinued stuff.

    My budget is about $1500 not including wiring. However, I'd like to spend less, if possible.

    I sell Diamond Audio. The SXP65S set isn't in my store but I could have it to you in a couple of days, depending on where you live. These speakers and a Diamond Studio TX102 subwoofer would be a great combination. The sub is made for a 0.75 cu ft sealed box if space saving is your concern. I could do a comparable or better setup using CDT Audio speakers. The selection is in the link down in my signature.

    For SQL I would do HAT 6.5 imagines active on a ppi p900.4 and a single ssa icon on a American bass Vfl 100.1, around $1300 total and get a custom ported SQL enclosure built by pro-rabbit with what's leftover. I would go with a 12 though more low-end extension, it'll fit I installed a 13.5 w7 ported in a 03 vette and didn't have to remove the seat.

    Sony h/u
    Front stage-CDT CL Comps
    Ppi p.600.2
    Knu ofc 4g
    Sub stage-Single 15" Crossfire XSV2 in 4.25 cu box tuned to 31hz
    AB Vfl 120.1
    Knu ofc 1/0
