    Default decision on component speakers

    I'm looking at getting new component speakers for my 09 silverado ext cab. I will be putting 1 12" sub in it. So i was wondering which component speakers would sound the best in a silverado with 1 12. I'm leaning towards the alpine type-r's or the JL c-2 650's because I have a price range around 300. But I would also like to know what im paying my money for and if anyone can give me some advice I would greatly appreciate it! thanks.

    Are you amping them? Both are great speakers but they will require more power then the radio puts out..

    That's exactly what I was getting out. You won't notice any difference if you are running them from your factory radio.

    What amp? Brand? Model? RMS power? As said above How are you hooking it up?
