    im a big JL fan. Mainly cuz they have great sound quality and the fact that you can tune the amps better than any ive ever seen. If you want to have a good quality system. your going to spend some dough. If want save some money lanzar speaker are the to go. i was impressed at the way they sounded in my friends car. As far as subs and amps, i would choose jl, rockford, kicker, mmats. Some are a little pricy but you wont be dissapointed. Im getting out of the stereo stuff and turning towards hondas now. I got my jl 13w7 and 1000/1 for a grand if you interested.

    i'd go to best buy or something. pick up some fosgate speakers( cheap and sound good). then id go to a pro audio place and pick up a JL 10w3 and a 250/1. you might find a good name brand 500 watt amp at a pawn shop. i always check them out when i need a bargain.

    the alpine type-r component speakers are pretty kickass. a friend of mine had those in his civic and the sound quality was awesome, but then again, i'm not a connosuire of sound eqiupment.

    yeah the type R's are good. Except the sub. Mine pounded prettywell. Then i stuck a fosgate hx2 in the same box and i noticed a big difference. I abused the crap out of the fosgate and ran strong till i sold it. My girl had the type R and that surround seperated from the cone, Alpine used some cheap as glue. Dont get me wrong they are good. but fosgate manufactures better that alpine

    i was into the audion scene for a wile alothough jl and rockford are nice stuff it is very expensive. i cant give much adivice as far as a 5 channel to choose but diamond audio makes killer speakers you can probably get a bottom of the line ten that will out perform an afforadble jl any day of the week. as far as door speakers goes in a crx a some little pioneer 3 ways will do the job, affordable but also still have quality. a 10" m3 sub in the slotted box will give you some bang you can probably find the sub for about 70 if that and very reliable.

    I prefer 2 way for the doors, cuz the little tweeter will prbably blow out anyways, making it sound like ass

    I have the 6.5" type r components in my hatch and it sounds beautiful! :worthy: i'd definetly look into them if you want a speaker that sounds loud and clear at the same time. Also i have a fiberglass spare tire well 10" sub box for sale if you are interested, it came with my hatch when i bought it and i dont want it, it was made by some shop on the north shore in MA.

    make sure you measure the speaker depth ! the crx's have very little room in their door panels

    You will find better deals over the net but remember you always have problems returning them if you do that. So my advise find what you want in a store either big retailer or small shop, then find it online from a known site.
