I'm getting a new car soon (Focus ZX5), and I want to fit in a nice audio system.
Short background - I live in Israel, where audio gear prices are EXTREMELEY high. I do, however, travel through work, and will be in detroit next month, and wish to mailorder stuff to our detroit offices, so I can pick it up while there.
So, I have decided, at the first stage, to buy only a HU and Speakers. Later on, I might add an amp and woofer (even got a good deal of a friend who'll sell me his 2nd hand ones... Alpine 307 amp, and some cerwinvega woof)- Anyway, I have already decided to purchase the Alpine 9827 HU (unless anyone has good points as for another brand, or climbing up to a more expensive model), and now I need to deal with the speakers issue.
Since this is a work car, which I have to return after a couple of years, and take everything out, I decided to limit myself to things which are easy (and cheap) to install and remove, and decided to limit my funding for this too. Hence, I am NOT looking for any component speakers, but rather looking for decent 2/3 way speakers to use.
I've spent quite some time looking around, and right now I think the best I found was the Infinity ref6802cf speakers, which are 60w rms (180w peak), and I can get two pairs for about 120$, and they would fit in instead of the factory speakers. Since, however, I can't listen to them in advance (I mailorder before getting there...), I want to hear some opinions, as well as other suggestions. I am a bit worried about the bases issue - I read some review online saying that the infinity have very good sound, but are not very good on the bases. Was wondering maybe get only front infinity, and look for something else for the rear doors that would give more bases... if anyone has anything recommended for the same price range...
Thanks for any information I can get :-)))
