    Im wanting to put a pretty decent system in my Explorer. So far Im thinking along the lines of Boston Z's up front, Pro's in the rear, 12w6 with a 500/1. Not to sure what I want to push my fronts/rears or what head unit yet. Any input would be appreciated ^_^

    Boston Z6 and Pro50 will cost me ~850. I was thinking about a JL 450/4 and a JL 300/2 to power them, I will be able to get the amps for ~800. Then a 1000/1 for ~650. Im going to go over budget.... Whatever. I still need to think about a sub, and a head unit.

    You can probably do ID mids cheaper, you can get zapco or arc amps cheaper than JL, and perform better.

    my speakers total 900 Z6s with alpine type-xs for rear fills (for use when rear passengers are present)

    amp total for me is 750 for front amp, 350 for rears amp 600 for sub amp, DLS ultimate series

    already at 2600 and this is internet pricing plus cd5000 eclipse deck, veonake wiring, yellowtop battering and like 600-700ish in sound deadening if you are getting speakers like the z6s you might as well match quality throughout system

    The budget isn't really set in stone, just an idea. If I up my budget to ~4k, I should be fine.

    JL is overpriced, the MSRP of Z6's is $1000, and Pro's are what, $500? Im buying last years model for a hell of alot less. Still not worth it, even if I can get the Z's and Pro's for less than what the Z's retail?

    Boston Acoustics? Too funny. Post this thread on elitecaraudio and see how bad you get laughed at.

    Try buying your gear from somewhere other than Circuit City.

    a brief search of Z6s on that forum revealed no bashing of z6s

    congrats, you fail

    word DLS and seas are awesome but you cant knock the intense handling and output of the Z6s
