I have polk MOMO's and im pretty impresed. I have the coaxials, they are pretty cool cause they wire like components, (each speaker has its own crossover) Those sound pretty good. I have had Alpines and they were great speakers.

Are you just replacing speakers? cause i really like to talk AUDIO haha.

I've always thought JL's sounded kinda muddy. I already gave away my JL's, although I still have a set of 10's in the shed.

I've always preferred infiniti or alpine.

Yeah, I've been running alpine for years. I wont use any head unit besides alpine, or maybe eclipse. I've heard polks are pretty good, but I haven't used them myself yet.

I still have the factory system in my truck, so im upgrading everything. I am going to do an alpine deck(model 9886) .For 6x8's i was thinking of JL audio 6x8's and using a JL audio 300-4 amp. Im still debating on the subs, Im thinking of the shallow mount JL's I have also heard the kicker shallow mounts sound good too. I want to use the JL 500 amp for the subs.

JL's are only good if your going for high DB's, the sound quality isn't there, they've always sounded muddy to me. Heck, I'd rather see you go with power acoustics. Good subs, decent sound quality, good price point. But you want something that sounds good, stick with alpine, infiniti, and from what I hear, polk audio is pretty good. Just shop on-line, not at circut city or best buy. They're always a few levels below whats out there, and close to the high end price.

Oh, for subs, look at BOSS audio, and power base. Last I knew, BOSS bought alpine.

ill post some pics of my sub box and of my deck

be careful getting the 9886....something happened with a few of the decks and they had problems with the ipod inerface. I got the 9885 and its GREAT. do some reading on it tho, i got the 5 because i had heard it was the best all around.

I have 3 10" Rockford Phosgate P3 SD's in my truck...They hit the mids great, but bottum out real easy on the lows. They are powered by an alpine mrb-m1000 amp.

I like my momo's. Im thinking about throwing an amp to them, cause they could def handle more power.

thank you! I can now say my sub grills are "CUSTOM" because i took a sledge hammer to them! ahahahahaha

The tens sounds pretty good, the shallows are as vesitile as normal tens are. If you like listening to rap and want them to hit super hard, id go with 12's. i really am happy with my tens tho, the handle well with quick stuff too.

truth being none of the shallow mount subs are awesome i have the rockford p3 and they sound ok . If your looking for an alpine deck check out the w-250. Why dont you put some 6.5s on plates ? That will open up alot of quality options

Yea, turns out its less that maybe 1/4 of an inch that keeps on from fitting normal 10's back there. I wanted to put the kicker cvr's back there but it was just BEARLY to narrow.
Check out JL's new shallow mount...it looks pretty crazy! its like 2 1/2 inches deep! looks kinda like a frisbee!!!!
