    Questions, Questions, Questions

    Alright, so I'm slowly upgrading my car audio. This started out as I wanted to get rid of my bogus stock speakers, but has turned into a passion somewhat.

    My current set up:
    Pioneer 4600MP
    Front: CDT CL-6X (coax)
    Rear: CDT CL-6X (coax)
    Sub: CDT CL-1215
    Amp: Directed 600d (400 watts RMS)

    I just got my sub and now I want to upgrade my components because sound is being drowned out. I've searched previous posts and found that most speaker recommendations are done on a $500 and under limit. However, I'm commissioning you to do a $300 and under for me. My top choices as of now are: DLS RS/US6, CDT EF-CFi, and OZ audio. I have a 1990 Nissan 240sx, I will be purchasing an amp afterwards for the chosen speaker. They will be mounted in the door panel, stock location.

    Thanks for any help.

    how many watts are you putting to the CDT coax's? are they off the HU?

    i would suggest buying an amp for them before splooging out on a new set of comps. get them some wattage (HU only gives maybe 20w x4 at most - and thats prolly distorted) and then see if they arent loud enough.

    Hehe...that makes it sound important............ "commissioning"

    You have some awesome choices already. Those DLS and OZ Audio (Matrix Elites I'm assuming) are great speakers. Also check into the Image Dynamics Chameleons(sp?), Focal, Rainbow and Arc Audio (don't have time to look up model numbers right now). Boston Acoustics Pro6.5s should be in there aswell.
