I'm not sure if you're looking for advice or to buy but you should get a better reply in this forum.

with that budget look into Phoenix Gold RSD comps and you might have just enough left over for an alpine pdx-2.150 which would be a pretty nice budget setup.

If you are looking to get front speakers, consider 6.5" instead of 5-1/4. You will get much better midbass.

I don't want to cut my door...there have to be good 5.25"s....

EDIT: Also, forget that $ limit..I want it to sound good so just hit me with some good stuff, I don't want it crazy expensive but it can be more than what I first said. Def. want a 4 way amp too.


How about this set up??

AMP: http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_...DSC+4125.html#

Cutting the door is done to improve performance (works on both 5's and 6.5's), but is not required. You can mount 6.5's on the door panel if you want.
