First of all, i want to thank those who have commented on my previous posts. I am a very open minded person, and hold your opinions highly in my decision making process. Now that being said, let me list my questions.
My vehicle (1999 f250 Lariat) Crew-cab (4 doors)
Head unit- Alpine cda-9835
Amplifier-alpine mvrf 450 (5 channel amp) will be purchasing it tomorrow
Existing speakers (boston acoustics coaxials). You can fit 5x7/6x8's or 51/4 separates.
Now. My questions are:
First: what speaker would you recommend to use in my truck's front doors. I read a review which gave the Alpine Spr-136a's bigger brother the Spr-176a a really good review (well more like a good/wise buy for the money). That being said, what (in your personal experience) would you say would be a good fit for my front doors?.
Second: I read in this website http://www.wickedcases.com/caraudio/rearfill.html
That for rear fill it is better to use a mid-bass speaker , than a coaxial. I would like to know what midbass speaker you would recommend. I was thinking maybe just purchasing 2 sets of the spr-136a and leaving out the tweeters in the rears (fill), given that they are really favorably priced.
Lastly: I Want to have nice tight bass...not too loud , and i'll be using the mvrf-450's 5th channel (i believe it's 150watts) to power the sub. Would an 8 inch sub single/dual voice coil work for me, or would i need a 10 inch sub?...What brand/brands are readily available, and are of good build quality. More importantly, will reproduce tight, accurate bass?. I have a budget of about $400 for the front/rear speakers, and a budget of $200 for the sub...I had posted previously, but i wasn't thorough enough in my inquiry, hopefully you will understand what i'm talking about, and be able to point me in the right direction. I really appreciate anyone's input on this....
