    Comps & Coaxials, Or 2 Comps?

    Which do you guys think would be a better setup? A pair of really good components in the front with higher-end coaxials for rear fill, or two pairs of decent components? I've listened to many setups and I've decided I want rear fill, so don't try to talk me out of it.



    New setup in the works:
    Vehicle: 1999 Ford Windstar
    Head Unit: Pioneer Premier DEH-P860MP
    Signal Processing: Profile Q100 3-Way active crossover, set to 80hz and 3.5khz
    High Pass: the legendary Aura tweeters powered by a Pioneer GM-3000T
    Band Pass: Ascendant Audio 6.5" Poly Midwoofers powered by a Pioneer GM-5000T
    Low Pass: Elemental Designs 19Ov.2 in 3ft^3 tuned to 30hz, powered by a Power Acoustik 2APC-1400

    Components in front and co-axials in the rear. If you must have rear-fill, don't waste your money on a comp set for back there.....simply not worth the $$. Just get a decent ~$50 co-axial from a local shop or BB/CC.


    But remember.....just because you've listened to a lot of stereos, it doesn't mean you've listen to good or properly setup stereos Quality > Quantity

    Perhaps another option? How about some really, really good components in front and just good coaxials in the rear (instead of higher-end). Both CDT and Crystal make some good coaxials that are relatively inexpensive.

    That's pretty much what I meant by the first option, I don't plan on spending more than $50 or $60 for the rear coaxials if I do that.

    i say just leave in whatever speakers you already have back there and run them off the HU. Put it all into comps and amp.

    Comps and coaxials, no doubt. Unless you're planning on driving around SQueerish people who like to sit in the back seats all day, 2 comp sets would be pretty useless.

    If the stock rears are decent you could just use those. Another thing that you might think about is just getting mids for the rear and no tweets back there.
