Hey all it's been awhile sorry for being gone so long.
Anyways, I thought I would ask you all first. But I have to say the last time I posted on the Car audio section I got no responses.
I have a 2003 Ford Ranger FX4 lvl2 extended cab and it sounds like garbage. I really want to make it sound as good as I can. I am on a budget for it however. I just want it to sound good.
Now, thankfully I have some spare equipment I can use. At my disposal is ethier a Eclipse CD8445 HU or a Pioneer P880prs HU. I have a JL 300/4 Slash V2 I am not useing and a JL 500/1 Slash V2 I can use as-well from a older project. I also have a set of Momo MM6 laying around but they are 6.75" and I would have to cut the panels to make them fit.
I have a few things to consider. The speakers that are built into the truck are 5x7 all the way around. So if I want to just do a drop in my options or limited for decent speakers.
Or I could try to adapt a set of 6.5" speakers instead.
I think I would like to make a max budget of $300 to finish what ever I need done.
Any suggestions? What would be a good set of speakers to go with. I was looking at Image Dynamics XS series they seem to be on sale. The 5x7 are only $200 right now which seems like a good deal. I am a big fan of HAT speakers and the Mirus's are affordable. But do HAT's cheap speaker still compare to ID's High end XS series still?
Other speakers I would consider are : CDT HD, Eclipse 8062, Pioneer REV TS-D801P, Focal ISS line, Maybe even Alipne's Type R. Most everything else is simply out of my budget.
Healthy mid range and mid bass are a must for me. I like my music balanced yet slightly warm with out the ear bleeding high end. "Just my preference"
Thanks again hope you guys can help me out with this.
