The time has come for a new system

First I would like to say I am going to do all new speakers and a new deck. I am looking at Infinity Kappa speakers but options are welcome. These are 130 a pair and seem to be a good set up. For now I am not going to do a sub as funds are limited but as far as the deck goes what do you all perfer I would like to stay at or under 200 bucks

Alpine, and Alpine only.

I run a Alpine CDA 9883 headunit, Sony xPlod Premier Series 6x8's, and 1 Infinity Basslink. Needless to say I have never NOT got a compliment on how well those three mesh together.

So many people seem to love alpine, but they have just never seemed to have the look for what you are paying. Such a simple. plain look until you spend big bucks. I vote Kenwood for their great ratings in power and sensitivity as well as features and options.

You need to find out what you like, go to some audio shops and play around with what they have there.

Go with the Kappas. I run them in my truck and have been completely happy with them. Well worth every penny!

I am looking at both the kappas and the polk db571 car speakers same power a little less money. The kappas have a better warranty though but for 110 dollars more I will have to see what I decide.

Thanks for all the help guys

Have you listened to ever single other speaker out on the market? I highly doubt it
