    Recommendations? I know I'm limited on depth so what are my choices?

    Bass not too important as I intend to go for one of Andymac's stealth subs real soon anyway.

    Budget - £150 pref but would stretch to £200 if it were worth it.

    Cheers,
    Adam

    The components have crossovers which you can set how you want... I've got them in teh front and they are excellent!

    Thanks all, ordered a set of the Kappas in the end...

    Is there sufficient space in the doors to securely mount the crossovers?

    Cheers!

    i know mate, had to have the tweets on the quietest setting on the x-over and they were still to bright, the mids didnt give that much mid bass either /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    Shouldn't really need too much bass up front, you can get that from that rears or even a sub. Have you got an equalizer setting on the HU - you can turn the treble down on that! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif
