    Just ordered my new parts, this is what I have so far.. I am getting the comps custom installed in my doors next week. I will be doing most of the installing, but I don't have the tools or materials for the comp installation in my doors. I need to pick up an amp kit for wiring everything up yet, but I can get that later.
    In a couple weeks I hope to have my JL 10w7 and JL 500/1 amp.

    I have a feeling the JBL amp is going to blow out my rear 6x9's, but I'm going to see how they hold out before I buy new speakers for the rear, if I feel I even need them.

    Alpine CDA-9833
    JBL GTO 75.4
    PHOENIX GOLD OCTANE-ZR 6.5" COMP

    Grand total was about $600 shipped, all brand new off eBay.

    Thats what I was just thinking actually :big grin: We'll see what happens. The Alpine ships tomorrow, not sure if the speakers are yet or not... I hope it ships this week yet.

    I'd personally bridge the amplifier in that case, as the tweeters dont need nearly as much power as the midwoofers. If he is gonna use an active xover, then I can see biamping, but IMO with passive crossovers, he would be better off bridging the amp.

    Thats what I meant... Bi-amping would be running the tweeters to separate channels on the amp right? I wouldn't need to do that since I am running off the passive crossovers that come with the comps.

    Yes, bi-amping would be running an amplifier channel to each midrange and tweeter.

    That's why I recommended bi-amping, he'd have complete control over the tweeters to adjust them to his liking.

    Nah, not getting JL this time Not likely anyway, I'm hoping to order an Image Dynamics ID10 V3. We'll see how much cash I have left after payday. :)

    But a good outboard xover + EQ is needed in a lot of cases to make a biamp setup work really well. Running the amp bridged will probably sound better than less power and just the xover in the 9833.
