Let me start off by saying I have a big trunk.
I have 6x9 openings in my rear deck over the trunk and I need some help choosing what's right for me. Originally I had my eyes set on some CDT Gold 6x9's:
CDT Audio ES-0690 Gold
But then searching here about IB subs, I came across the CDT Refurb store which is probably the worst thing I could ever come across. I see two sets of speakers which will fit in my 6x9 openings.
Shop CDT Audio - QES-680 *
Shop CDT Audio - CL-69SUB/CF
I realize I'll need to make some mounts for the 6.8, I'm not shy about it, I've made mounts before. At least I think that would work back there. I should probably just stick to the 6x9 speaker size, KISS right?
BUT THEN I was also considering a pair of 8" subs running IB. I know almost nothing about picking out subs for IB other than what little I've read here. There's a lot that's just plain over my head. I think those may be out the window since I don't understand enough to make a correct choice on my own. I'm not looking to be told what to buy, just helped with making the correct choice.
ALSO I don't want to totally eclipse the front speakers. I could have done better picking them but I got a good deal on them and I'm over-driving them a little bit. Infinity Kappa 682.9cf driven by a Pioneer GM-5500T. To my tin ears they sound fine, I'm just worried that if I cram something really amazing in the rear deck I'll hear the rear speakers booming away and pulling me backward. I have some sound shaping options to play with in the head unit, maybe this isn't a valid concern. I'm sort of in over my head and would appreciate some help with all these way too many choices. Please don't add too much more, I'll just get even more confused. Thanks guys!
Cliffs, are the Gold's worth the price premium over the refurb CF's?
