Well it seems I will have a problem finding an amp with a low enough output to amp the speakers at 2ohms. Maybe I should go for the Kappa Perfects or the CDTAudio set?

onec you figure out what speakers you want check out ebay you can always find them at the cheapest there.

infinity, alpine, rockford, clarion, kicker, audioban, polk,and some piomeer and kenwood speakers. thats about all that i can think of right now. for good name speakers that is.

Well I think I decided on the CDTAudio CL-62s for the front, I just to to decide on some 6x9s. I was thinking the CDT Audio ones for that too, they do not have any tweeters they only handle lows is that preferable or should I look for a set that can do some highs too?

well i went to http://www.cdtaudio.com/classic2000MidDriv.htm and they look realy nice and the specs a nice but the price whewwwwwwww. you can find that same deal for alot cheaper. and yes i would go for a 3-way rear 6x9 speaker.
3-way speakers would have a woffer a midrange and a tweeter all in one speaker.

Actually I found them for $200 with free shipping instead of $350. Only cheaper priice is $180 on EBay...and I don't use EBay and with shipping it'd probably cost more.

also: if you are getting the 6.5" midranges you know you will probably need to make custom mounts for them. (I would mount them to the door frames)

the tweeters should fit into the door pannels.

I already have 6 1/2 in Pioneers installed so why wouldn't these fit?
EDIT: What times is the guy you mentioned usually on?
