    I was looking to get some components for my Jetta and was between the two, Alpine Type Rs or Infinity Kappa Perfects. The Infinity are more and I know I need an amp for the best output so the Alpines are cheaper and I might be able to get an amp at the same time or should I get the Infinity and then get an amp abit later??

    And second question which amp would be a good choice for either?

    That amp would work just fine.

    Which set of speakers did you like the sound of more on the soundboard in the store? Granted that isnt really an indication of how they will sound in the car, but if you certainly preferred one over the other in the store, you'd probably like it more in your car too.

    Be careful...both of those speakers are ENORMOUS as far as mounting goes...check your spacing in the door before purchasing them. We had problems getting a Focal 165 KP set in a Jetta and that is a big speaker too, but no bigger than the 2 you are looking at. Just a word of caution.

    As far as which one to go with...like stated above...listen to them both then decide.
