    Default need help choosing speakers to audibly hear in 150+

    I have a 2001 chevy astro and I am doing 150+ at around 30hz and I ended up blowing all my interior speakers which is a good thing because I can now officially come back home to POLK! I just bought a PA660 so I was wondering what speakers you guys would choose to rock! I only want to run front stage.
    I have room for 6.5" components in each door panel and I built a custom center console that can house up to 1 8" size speaker in each side depending on magnet depth and in the front of center console I was thinking 4x6's maybe! I just want it to be loud SCREAMING to keep up with the bass!

    You want 2 8" subs up front, along with a pair of 4x6 and a pair of components? My first reaction is 'ouch'. I don't think anyone here listens to music that way.

    Loud is good for a while and seems like a great idea when you're young, but your ears might regret you pushed to such high db levels in the future.

    Why not just get some heavy duty tweeters or even a couple horns? its not like you would feel the mid bass hits anyways...

    Dude, you're asking what 4x6's will keep up with 150dB...

    Nothing is going to keep up. Get some horns and a s@#t ton of midrange speakers and throw them on a few amps. It doesn't matter what brand you get...what matters is how many.

    Friend, If you really are going 150 mph in an Astro Van, you should probably be paying attention to driving rather that dickin' with the sound system.
