Best 5.25 components you can get for ($3-400)?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I'm new to this forum and all and am in the process of putting a nice system in my car. I am currently trying to find the best pair of 5.25 inch components around $3-400 for in the doors of my cavalier (terrible car i know) but hey i don't car about the car its the music im into. I've looked through a variety of brands, Diamond, Memphis, Alpine, Polk, etc...

 

as of right now im pretty set on getting a pair of the Polk Sr5250. They retail around $800 i suppose but i've found where i can get them for around $350...

 

also looking to handle 100+ rms..

 

everyones thoughts on this are appreciated!

 

Thanks!

Install and personal preference is what matters, too many great sets at that price bracket. Those polks are awesome though, some of the "smoothest" tweeters I've ever heard. I'd get em, or a Boston SPZ50

Pioneer DEH-80PRS

JBL MS-62C

Kicker CX300.4 (Temporary)

Subs TBD (IAD 10" or 12" possibly)

Eclipse XA1000 (Till I need/want more power)

Sold to: ctmaudi, Trancer, Germ305, RAM_Designs, lrc131

Bought from: gentlejax, 2lows10, eL_wEEnIe, --Navi--, wu501, trumpet

yeah i kinda figured there were a lot cause i was having a hard time making up my mind since there were so many...but when you say smooth...now i listen to mostly rock/hardcore/metal music and only bumb with the hip hop here and there...do you think these will respond nicely with heavier/harder music?

 

but anyways thanks for the great input!

I would try to listen to as many as you can before you buy. They all have a differnt sound to them. I liked the mid and tweet on the polks, but they lacked mid bass to me. When I listened to the bostons, they had better midbass, but the high end lacked. The high end Alpine set has an incredible tweeter and high end, but the mid ****** to me. All the speakers have a sound out of the box that I would listen to first. A lot of the sq sets that I have been recommened had a more flat sound to me. This may be to your liking, dont know.

      Hi. I'm trying to decide between the Alpine Type X or Type R 6.5" component system for my car. I will also be getting the same model (whatever I choose) for just 6.5" co-axials for my rear deck as well. All 4 of the speakers will be powered off Alpine's new Type X 4 channel amp (the X-A70F).
      Do the type X really sound that much better and are worth $200 more a pair than the type R's?
      Thank you.

      I have a Yukon 2003 that has 3 rows so space is tight between the 3rd row and the hatch rear door. I have no big three upgrade.  I am using 4 Gage OFC from the battery to the fuse and CCA Gage from that point to a secondary battery that runs in parallel, the cca to amp. I run short grounds of CCA 4Gage from the battery to a threaded seat post that has had the zinc cleaned off so it is all metal to metal contact. I use a Alpine mrx1000 so 1000 rms monoblock to power a W6V3 and I have just bought a used W7 10" in a ported box. My concern is that I am not getting enough power but the the W7, it is rated at 750 rms. Should this system do for what I need? I have heard of Head units clipping , how do I know if mine is ? Am I getting enough power to the sub? I did hear some clipping when I was trying to tune my amp/ gain so I feel enough power did make it to sub but want to get your thoughts on this. Im just tryint to make sure that I am not bottlenecking or losing power.
