Need some opinions. I'm looking at Infinity Kappa 60.5cs (6.5" components w/ tweets, crossovers) in the front doors, Infinity 692.5i (6x9 2ways)in the rear deck, powered by MTX Audio Thunder342 amp (85W/channel into 4ohms). I will use the factory CD HU for now. No plans for subs since the 6x9s go down to 35Hz and I want to keep the trunk space, plus I'm a cheap so and so. How am I doing so far?

Everybody has there own preference as far as the front door panel speakers, but for your rear deck speakers, I get the best quality sound from 3-way 6x9's. I myself have always went with pioneer for there mid & Hi's and havent had any complaints.

I took the spec's from HOTSS web site and had a local car audio shop cut out, mount & intsall the speaker templates and speakers for $60. I'm running 6.5 3-way's in the front and 6x9 3-way's in the rear deck, ALL Pioneer. No amps (yet) but even off the stock Head Unit I still get great sound.

More Stereo system to come..... I have a pair of S10L5's and a Box w/ 1 Cu.Ft. per chamber.
I still need to get my hands on two amps and a Upgrade on the Head Unit.( All of which I have picked out, just need to fill up two more piggy banks, LOL)

from what i have heard you will love those 6.5 comps. you should be sounding pretty good with those infinity speakers. i don't know much about the mtx amps, but i can definatly reccomened jbl's amps. if your going to run all this of the stock deck you might need a processer of some sort to get some good sound out of your hi level outputs. but you could get by with hooking the amp up through the speaker wires.

Check these out - www.subpods.com - trunk space GALORE! </font>[/QUOTE]Those look very nice and I'm sure they contribute to awesome sounds. However, the pods alone would cost more than the rest of my system, therefore not qualifying for the "cheap so-and-so" category.

As nice as Pauls sub pods are, I wouldn't call anything "trunk space gallore" unless you can fit the stock spare AND a pair of drag radials in there along with the subs.

Only way to do subs that I've seen with that requirement is either the baffle board behind the spare or in the side panel locations.

All that said, I know you're on a budget, but I don't think you'll get anywhere near a decent amount of bass out of those 6x9s unless you don't listen to much with low tones... a pair of 10" free-airs in a baffle board retains all your trunk space while giving great low-end, though of course there's the cost of the pair of subs and an amp to run em. (I have a JL Audio 250/1 amp running two 10" JL Audio 10IB4 free airs myself).

Thanks for the compliment, KS! The JAWSS Sub Pods take up approx 1.8 Cubic feet per pod (for the JL 12W7). Granted, not as much as a baffle board, but you can still get a full size spare, luggage, tools, and groceries in the trunk. Not too shabby!
