Just make sure you get a good amp to power them and spend the time needed to tune it and dial it in properly and you should be happy.
you have a point there bro. I guess I'll just have to buy and see. lol. I'll get either the Type * speakers or the Type R'*. I don't see reviews for the type R'* but many good reviews for the Type *'*.

Oh and today is the day for part 2. . I'll update in a few hours. Part 3 will be ordered next week.

**UPDATE** forget a few hours...a few minutes after I posted my last post, the bell rang. Once I heard it, I knew what it was.

Alternator is being put in next week and the amp should be ordered tomorrow. Then I have to do the oil pan gasket and tranny seal and front motor mount AGAIN. After that, box is being ordered along with new battery for under the hood and yellow top for the rear. A LOT of money :/. lol

alright so I'm doing all KnuKoncepts wires.

I'm using this for the Big 3
http://www.knukonceptz.com/productDe...?prodID=KFX0BK

The one RCA I need
http://www.knukonceptz.com/productDe...odID=KARSS2.6M

Remote wire. About 20 feet should suffice?
http://www.knukonceptz.com/productDe...prodID=KOL18BL

Now here'* a problem with the amp kit...the Fuse Type doesn't match the output of my alternator which is stop :/
http://www.knukonceptz.com/productDe...prodID=KFX-PK0

And the terminals
http://www.knukonceptz.com/productDe...dID=RT1/0516BK
http://www.knukonceptz.com/productDe...odID=RT1/0516R

Now here are a few questions Monte..I want to start ordering as soon as you answer

I would need 2 black terminals and 1 red right? Also, how many feet of wire would I need for the Big 3? And what do I do about the fuse type for the amp kit?

fuse just has to be larger than the fuse rating on the amp not the alt. fuse is to protect the wire from shorts its not carrying all the current of the alt.

Sorry I didn't get here soon enough. Thanks for reminding me. Can you give me a quick run down of what'* going on and what you need help with? 10 pages is one heck of a long thread.
