    I have a 98 chevy 1500 reg cab with stock sytem.

    So far I have bought a 10" JL w2 and Rockford Fosgate P200-2

    Im going componets for the front but cant decide between these:

    1. Infinity kappa
    2. Mephis M class
    3. Alpine type R
    4. Polk audio 5250

    head unit im going with pioneer premier 4900.

    anyone have some advice for me, I cant decide on componets any one own any of these? I listen to Rock (Iron Maiden, Tool, AFI) and Trance (paul oakenfold, BT, Crystal Method). thanx again.

    Anything but infinity. I was surprised how poor they sounded compared to even decent co-ax's at the soundboard. IMO, go to a shop/best buy and listen to them all then decide. Sounding good on the display doesnt mean that they will sound the same in the car but you can listen carefully for harshness, crossover transition, and smothness both on and off axis. Especially if they allow you to bring a CD in and listen to your music on them. If you can, listen to them using the CD player you will be using or a similar modle so you can adjust the EQ and all as well.

    the alpines perform well for their price.
