Audiophile input requested

Need some input for someone(s) that know the ins and outs of quaility components.

Currently I am torn between CDT, Memphis Bell & kappa Perfect components.

Looking for clarity vs 'Boom'

I know my setup is not favorable but if I am going to spend teh coin, I want it to be good.

car is a 78 T/A
I have provisions at this time for two (2) 4" units in the dash and two(2) 6x9 units in the rear and will have a 10" sub.

I dont mind an old/used amp as long as it is good. I know some 'older ' models can be better than new ones. speakers I;d get new since they are not too much.

who can help/ suggest components?

I don't think it will be the components limiting your sound quality as opposed to the sizing and location of the speakers. Would you consider, perhaps, a kick panel to house some 6.5"s?

If you are willing to spend the coin on top dollar stuff, you obviously have high expectations. Those small 4" drivers mounted will not really hit the mids properly for the front stage. Not to mention, they will be in a crummy spot. The rears wouldn't be a problem really.

I would decide first whether you are ready to make the plunge for kick panels and proper tweeter mounting before deciding which speaker to get. The setup, in my opinion, will be more important than the marginal difference between high end speakers.

Thanks for the input. I agree with your thoughts and have been tossing speaker placement around.

I will point you towards DLS electronics also, have their amp, subs, and 6.5" front speakers in my TL and it is audiophile clear and tight on the bass.
