One of my friends wants to put together a really budget system that consists of 4 6.5" coaxials and an amp. Generally I use Alpine equipment, but this is a bit big for his budget, and don't provide the bass he wants. So basically I need 4 speakers that provide the best bass possible, and still sound reasonably good in the mids and highs... His budget is around $150. He already has an aftermarket headunit with preouts...
Anyone have any suggestions?
Two sets of speakers and an amp for $150??? I'd suggest eBay or craigslist. You're not going to get anything new that's worth a crap for that budget. IMHO

Nphilanthro - you've been here long enough to know this - what kind of car is it so we can check what fits. Here are some that CF sells that have good bass and are in the price range.
You can maybe find them discounted for $50/pair (personally, it wouldn't be worth leaving CF for $10/speaker pair) and a $50 amp, but the amp won't be great quality. You also have a Catch-22 in that those speakers won't support a very good amp, but if you spend the extra for speakers that you could amp later, you no longer have the money to buy the amp with.

As for fitting them, it doesn't really matter. Anything that is 6.5" will fit. Mounting depth isn't a problem.
Thanks for those suggestions, I'm looking into them. Currently, I am no longer planning to amp them. So some highly efficient speakers would be good since I am going to run them off a head unit that puts out around 15-20 watts RMS.
Thanks for the help.
Because my name is on the business, I work hard to make sure you get the best possible shopping experience. I look forward to hearing your comments .
