    component help

    ok, i'm looking into getting some components for my car once i save up some cash, but i would like to hear some recommendations from people around here first. i would like to stay in a 200-300 price range for each pair, and i'm not worried about an amp yet, because i can get one to match the comps after i get them...that's no big deal.

    i'm really leaning towards the alpine type x 6.5's i've heard a lot of good about them, and they have impressed me so far, but what other brands have you guys had good experiences with?


    any opinions would be greatly appreciated, both with suggestions on which comps to go for, or which ones to avoid...thanks

    I personally stay within the Harman International area (aka JBL, Infinity, Harman Kardon, Crown..etc)

    JBL's sound great and Infinity is known for their SQ

    best thing to do is just go to a local dealer and listen to different components playing the music you like and also just random types of music so you can hear what they sound like playing all kinds of music

    Re: component help

    I've never had a set of components but i have heard many people say good things about RE and Rainbow. You might look up those companys.



    is there a diffrence between the 6.5's and 7's to say a 6x9 component? Cause i really want some components but i don't want to have to create some ports

    Re: component help

    Type R's wouldnt be bad.

    Also look for CDT, DLS, Rainbow, MB Quart, OZ, RE, Orion

    Stay away from cheap brands. Personally I dont like infinity comps they lack mid-bass, but that is my opinion.

    The 6x9s theoreticaly will have more bass, based on cone area, but round speakers are cleaner then oval so its a trade off quality or output.

    Re: component help

    everybody has their own preference as far as speakers go, and price is a factor too af course.

    i went to a "high quality" audio shop and listened to some infinities which i was sure i wanted. then i compaired them to the alpines and i new which i liked better: the type r's.

    my advice: go and try some out. listen to some friends systems and shops and figure out what you like.

    Re: component help

    I like Pioneer REV 6.5 comps for the low price, JL VR csi comps sounded really nice to me as well.

    I have heard lots of good stuff about Arc Audio ACS comps as well, they're just relabled rainbows
