Which speakers to choose

For all you audio guru's, when I get my tax return, I'm going to replace all the speakers in my 12 focus Ti in preparation of the amps I'm going to install. I've narrowed my choices down to these and I would like your opinions.

Front doors

Rear doors

Sub

or

the amps I have to drive them

http://www.woofersetc.com/p-10565-x5...amplifier.aspx


I've used CDT audio speakers before and I like them but I also want to try the Image Dynamics. Also I'm going to use an audiocontrol LC7i for the front and an LC6i for the rear as my LOC's

I'm not. My titanium has the sony amp in the trunk and that is where I'm going to mount the LOC's and amps. I'll use the existing wiring for the speakers.

Id stick with the Image Dynamics in this case. They're all around good quality product. Im only a fan of CDT in there higher end applications. As for the Amps, i would either go with Alpine or Rockford to start off. Either or is a good choice for good quality, for around the same price as the Kenwood, and in my opinion would sound much cleaner.

ID makes very good drivers.

It's too bad that I sold one of my Carvers. It would of made them shine.

Like I said earlier, I have used CDT before, but only the low end stuff. Never tried the ID before. If you know of any other 6.5" components under 2 bills I should look at?

As for the amps I already have them, they were in my fusion for about four months before i traded it in, so i yanked them out and kept them.

If you could afford a little more HAT Imagines are very nice.


You do plan on sealing up the access holes in the doors and using thicker baffles right?

You can also try going with the entry level JL 360/4 that I have. I'm really impressed with it. Reminds me of the old Alpines that sounded awesome. Its pretty cheap too. You can get it for about $140 online.
