    Component system help for a newbie!!

    I have a 1997 GMC single cab truck that I already have 2 12" Audiobahn AW121T's and a Audiobahn A2502DP amp pushin them.. THe head unit is a Clarion Pro Audio DXZ945MP... I know am looking to upgrade my stock door speakers that are 6.5 components... I listen to very fast and heavy metal music.. I am wanting the best sound for my money... I am no pro and will not be in any contests... $250 MAX!!!

    Also what would be a good amp in the same price range to push them??? I live in an area that you cant just go out and listen to them...

    What I have seen in my price range...

    Audiobahn ACIS62
    Alpine
    Infinity Perfect 6.1
    CDT???
    FOCAL


    HELP ME!!!

    Re: Component system help for a newbie!!

    i recommend the focal polyglass 165v2s also. i had them and loved em. just be careful sending them a good amount of power and make sure your crossovers are set properly. i damaged my mids by burping at 51hz lol. They bottomed out and they rub now. as long as the crossover is set right, you have nothing to worry about.

    THat is not going to be too much power is it??? I read the nominal power is 75watt and the max power of 150 watts... THe heck if I know!!!

    Also do you think I would be better off getting a differant brand amp other than audiobahn to push my two audiobahn 12" AW121T subs... I already have the subs just not an amp at the moment...

    Whats a DMM??? Would it be better to get an amp that is rated over and adjust the gain accordingly or an amp with less and crank the gain???

    Better to have an amp that is rated higher than speakers ratings.

    If your amp is rated lower you'll never get the full potential of the speakers. And if you crank up the volume you could clip the amp and kill your speakers.



    Source Unit: Pioneer P9 combo
    Tweeters: CDT DRT-25 Silk
    Mids: CDT ES-5 (5.25")
    Midbass: CDT M6 (6.5")
    Subs: Pioneer TS-W12PRS
    Mid & Tweet amp: Pioneer PRS-X340
    Midbass Amp: Pioneer PRS-X720
    Sub Amp: Pioneer PRS-X720
