Recommended Posts

so I was plannin on runnin some new highs and mids but dont know what to get, i came across some MB Quarts, Diamond Audio and Bostons for some reasonsable price what i have in my truck right now is

MMATS 6.5 components runnin off a 400x4 RF

MMATS 6.5 2way runnin off a 400x4 RF

MMATS 4x6 running of my apline iva d105

they sound awesome but i had them in there for about 4 years now and wanna upgrade.

and this is all coming out of a 01 Reg cab silverado with qlogic kick panels.

i love the sound of boston sr's, loud and clear, so what more could you want?

pioneer d-series are a bit cheaper, a bit less crisp on the high end, but have a much lower x-over point and a smoother sound

jbl powers are one of the few 2ohm speakers, so that amp will be putting out all it ever will, and the jbls will love every last watt. theyre loud and clear with very very strong midbass, but otherwise dont stand out too much.

if you want to go the sq route, lose the 4x6 and find a rainbow/dls/focal system that has 1 tweeter, a 6.5 mid, and a 6.5 woofer. run the mid and tweeter in the kick. the older focal k3p was like this, the new ones have a like 4in mid...

If you dont wanna spend alot of coin , the high end JL comps are pretty nice. I really am quite happy with the sets I have for what I paid for them. I have also heard a 6.5" set of C5 s and the ZRs..... they both sound pretty good.

Given the choice of no budget though, I would look for those RE XXX comps, for flat out gettin loud. somebody posted up a video of a 6.5" XXX showing excursion, and it moves better than some subs. They get great reviews all over the web.

If you are chasing SQ and wanna shell out the cash, find focals or rainbows or Hertz. I have heard focals, and they sound like what they cost, no question. I have held some hertz comps in my hands, they looked very well made, but I haven't heard them. And rainbow , well I can only be a internet know it all when it comes to those, cause I have only read good things abot them, I haven't seen or heard a set for my self.

On a side note, there is a guy in town here who went Boston speaker crazy. He had those comps with the huge ass crossover boxes, boston amps, boston subs, ... basically everything but the head unit and wire was boston. I was very impressed. He just replaced all the factory speakers in a yukon, and had to 12 s in the back. I think they make some really nice equipment.
