Infinity Perfect in the rear?

1. remember that the new alpines do not have TA and XO controls.
2. If you are using a box sub the boot can even take a 12" tube but the rear deck is not wide so if you are looiking at a rear deck install the best option mgiht be a pair of 8".
3. I'd get the same comps for the front and rear. or get coax for the rear with a similar sound and if at all get better comps for the front than for the rear.
4. why Kenwood amps?

The Infinity is fitting for the front. Use the Audiobahn for the rear. In fact, if you can, get Audiobahn AS62V for the rear. They're far better than the DUB series at the price. Trust me. And in that, the tweeter can be mounted coaxially, so you don't have to worry about where to put the tweeter in the rear.

shady, I'd seriously also conder B&T advice on the audiobahns as also mroten's for the pioneer.

Due to my proximity too many manufacturers I do not recommend any one brand but dont feel it too wrong to second another member's advice.

there are many other amps but these are some I have heard or heard of

sub amps
Pioneer 7100 or D510
JBL's 601.1
Sony XM SD61 or D6000 (only heard of the last one)
you could bridge mono a Audison SRX 2 as well but I dont know if it is powerful enough.
Alpine MRP M450 or 650 (I have not heard it but am not told good things about it).

4 ch. amp
Alpine MRV F240 or F345
JBL 60.4 or 75.4
Pioneer 6200 or 6150MF
Audison SRX 4 (not heard but heard of a lot)
Sony SD46X (not heard either but should be decent)

You can connect it (via a FM modulator or Aux in) but you cant control it. Get an Alpine CD changer like the CHS634.
