Battle of the Best Bang for $$$

What do you guys think? Phoenix Gold Octane series woofers available online for around 50$. Or CONCEPT XT-104, also available online for around 50$. As u can see im looking to go cheap for my next system. However when i think of a name like Phoenix Gold i just cant imagine getting a crappy product from them. As for the concept, its something different and cheap that im willing to spend the 80$ american for two of these to see just how they can perform. As for an amp, im gonna look for something like a 600 watt monoblock, possibly the Phoenix Gold X600.1 Xenon Series Mono Class D or something in that price range. Any feedback, or what else would u suggest for someone willing to spend around 150$ online for subs and less that 200$ online for an amp?

Please reply guys, this place has been dead lately

You should muster up the cash, and upgrade to the ZR...it's maybe a 10-15$ difference, but that extra money spent, is WELL worth it!
