    Infinity or Alpine?

    Hey, first post here, and I am considering buying a new headunit and speakers for my Eldorado for X-mas. I need 6 1/2s in front and 6x9s in the rear. I would like to do components in the front. I am stuck deciding between Infinity Perfect 6 1/2s in the front and Infinity Kappa 6x9s in the rear, or Alpine Type R 6 1/2 Components in front and Alpine Type R 6x9s in the rear. Which sound better? They will be run off an Alpine CDA-9835 headunit with the V-Drive amp. I will be amping them later on when I get the money. Thanks for your opinions.

    -Chris

    having heard the type r's im gonna have to say they sound real nice IMO. go with the type r's i think off a amp that puts out a decent wattage. btw i have heard them off HU and an amp. amp is a lot better but the HU can hold you over decently enough till you can amp them.

    Re: Infinity or Alpine?

    Wow.. this is pretty much the same question I have been asking myself. But I think the alpines will do much better than the infinitys. However, I do like the infinitys too.

    Re: Infinity or Alpine?

    Eldos are so pimp.
    im gonna get 1 eventually.
    Do you really need 6x9's ?....rear fill is...well...a waste of money.
    Why are you stuck on Infinity's and Alpines ?
    P.S
    If you have any pics of the Eldo PM me, id like to see them

    yea some people just cant get over the idea that if there are 4 speakers holes, they all need to be filled. i used to think that too until i got a strong frontstage. my opinion changed quite quickly. i will also say my friend who isnt even into car audio said my system sounded better when i had only the speakers in front playing...so i would agree with supa and say ditch the rear speakers. BUT, if you really want them im not gonna tell you how to listen to your music

    Re: Infinity or Alpine?

    The reason I want to get speakers in the back is because I have two TVs in the back and I need to hear the audio from them when I'm watching TV in the back seat.

    Dont waste your money on 6x9's, just get some cheap 6 1/2's back there.
    You fit those 5x7's in the Burb, so putting 6 1/2's in the Eldo wont be hard at all.
    Type S coaxials off the H/U, no need for an amp
