What are your goals and what is your budget? Why try to buy a used PBR amp when the new ones only cost like $150. Why go with the soundstream PN4.520 when you can get the TN4.900 (more power, twice the price unless your budget doesnt allow)? Once you tell us those two things, then we can go from there. What makes you so hell bent on the Hertz? They are great speakers, but the cost to performance makes them an awful value.
Well, a friend would sell me his PBR for $75 in perfect working condition.
I don't need the stereo to blow my face off and I'm not looking to enter any competitions. I doubt I'd even have it turned on when I'm not riding it.
I've heard those particular Hertz's and was impressed and I've heard nothing but great things about them from tons of people. I'm not married to them, but I was just basing my decision on what I mentioned above. Hell, my stereo in my truck has a killer set of Alpine type VR's in it, but it seems like people only use 3-4 different types of speakers in this world.
I don't really want to have to upgrade the battery and/or charging system and I know the more/bigger I add, the more juice it'll need. I don't want the never ending ball rolling type of deal. I just want to put together a very good sounding radio - ONCE - and be done.
I figure, I'll spend $2k at the most and that's it. "Almost" half of that will be tied up in just the rear lids and 6x9's...so that leaves me with $1k-$1100 or so for EVERYTHING else....amp(s), deck, speakers, wiring, adapters, handlebar control kit, etc. etc.
