System Choices and Questions
Alright so Im finally buying the system, so far I have bought/ordered an Eclipse CD7100, Crystal SSCS6 6.5" Comp set, and 2 8" AA Assasins.
Now I need to make some decisions, and buy my amps as well as deadner and wiring...
First thing I guess I need to decide on is do I want to go active or passive. Im not quite sure what I would gain from doing either, but I know I can do both wtih my HU and my comp set. If anyone can fill me in on the advantages of going active that would be great.
Next is should I purchase any more speakers (midrange/midbass) or tweeters? First off does the tweeter that comes with the Crystals do its job and do it well? Sound good and stuff like that or would I be better off buying some new tweeters? Or do I need to buy a midrange speaker?
Also if I go active should I still be giving each speaker 150W? My understanding was in a passive set up each speaker recieves 150W so it would be the same in the active. I may be wrong though.
Then for the amps for my sub the first two I was considering was the Cadence ZRS8 - had at around 175 and then the Lanzar Opti1400D - had at about 200... The Lanzar will probablly provide me with more power but the Cadence will provide me with a warranty. Just curious which way yall would go here or what amp you would put here in its place.
Then my amps for the comps... if I go active I need an amp that can do 150x4 @ 4 ohms I believe I found a Cadence amp thats 180 that can do this... the TXA-6004. Im looking to spend less than 200 here so if yall have any other suggestions here I am open to them. And if I was to buy a 4 channel amp could I just use 2 channels and leave the other 2 channels open if I decided to go passive, at least temporarily? Or is this rediculousy unsafe or something?
And I think thats it for now, unless someone wants to give me a list of all the wires I will need for this so I can order those now lol... But any help is appreciated thank you!
