View Full Version : Woo-Hoo! My Rainbows are here. [PICS]

A FedEx truck just dropped off a box of German car audio goodness at my place.
I just thought that I'd share some pics..

[Sorry about the dark, grainy pic.. :emb: ]

[The back of the 4" midrange.]

[A little better pic of the midrange, Cal 25 tweet, and a passive crossover.]

I can't wait to get these pups installed in my truck. For now, I'm probably just going to slap them into a pair of Q-Form kicks that I got from a friend. They will be deadened with a few coats of Cascade liquid damping material, as soon as it gets here in the mail. I plan on glassin' up some custom kicks in the near future, I just don't have the time to do them at this moment. ;)

In case anyone is curious, these are Rainbow CS 210 PRO LINE 4" two-way components. I'm pairing them up with my "old school" 6.5" Alpine 6062GD's that are currently doing midbass duty in the doors of my Tacoma. These will be replaced with either a set of Rainbow or ARC Audio midbasses as soon as I scrape up some more dough.

[Mad props going out to CDJ for letting me know about these. Also, ULTRA mad props going out to 3.5Max6spd for all the info on these speakers! I know you wanted me to write a review, I'm just not a review writing kinda guy. :D Oh, yeah, I can't forget about Jason! You rock, Jason! It was a pleasure doing bidness with you.] :veryhapp:

05-25-2005, 08:41 PM
I can send you an email, if you'd like? ;)

>>" Im kinda broke but I can send you some golf tees, a picture of my old dog and a shiny greddy exhaust emblem with the stickyness still on the back."<<

Oh, that's not necessary. I was just hoping to get a "Thankyou", or something along those lines back for all the PMs that I sent earlier... No worries. :D

05-25-2005, 08:44 PM

Schuey2002
05-25-2005, 08:50 PM
That's what I thought..

:laugh:

It doesn't even have to be the "TH" word. H@ll, just acknowledging that ya'll got my PMs would suffice..

:D

Edit: HondaPh00l, I sent you a PM. If you can't read it, let me know and I'll send the info via an email.. :)

Schuey2002
05-25-2005, 09:41 PM
I'm going to hold off with anymore PM's for tonight. I'm sure that my source is being inundated with bloody emails.

So, if I don't get a nastygram from him tonight, I'll send out more PM's tomorrow, starting with Ace_TX. ;)

If anyone ELSE wants to forward this info other members of this forum, go for it. As for me, I'm calling it a night, PM wise.. I hope no one takes offense at this. Seeing how his originally didn't start off as a "Hookup" thread. :p:

burnzie2413

99StangGt, from one Oregonian to another, you'll get hooked up. If you can't get it off others above, you'll get the info from me in the morning.

Ok, I've just heard from Jason.

He said that he is fine with it. I'm STILL not going to publish this in the open forum, and I ask you (the ones that know) to do the same.

So, I'm sending out more PM's now..

Ok, everyone above this post has been "hooked up". If you have posted up through this point and I missed you, just let me know by posting below..

:)

** PLEASE NOTE **

I have devulged this info in private and I ask that you not post this on other forums. If you have friends that want to know this info, fine, just not out on any public forum. Jason said that he didn't "spam" this info out, but that he was selling this stuff in quiet. Everyone understand? :p:

Schuey2002
05-26-2005, 03:04 AM
Ok, here's the deal.

Everyone above should have received a Private Message from me. If you have Posted Above and haven't heard from me, just let me know.

When I started this thread, I was just trying to share some pics of my new speakers. But, somehow, some way, it quickly turned into a "hook me up" thread. I've done my part. Ya'll have been "hooked up!"

I'm not sending out anymore PMs. Count the number of people that have posted on this thread and you will get some idea of the number that I am talking about.

If anyone else comes along and wants this contact info, you're just going to have to get it from one of the CA member above. Just ask 'em. They'll give it to ya..

:)

LOL okay back to topic...


Nice speakers!!

Schuey2002
05-26-2005, 03:11 AM
What? Is it normal for threads (about someone's new speakers) on this forum to turn into "Hook me Up" threads?

Just wondering..

Savstyle
05-26-2005, 03:15 AM
thos r some ncie speakers, hope i can get some lol

HondaPh00l
05-26-2005, 03:00 PM

Could anyone please send me the contact information. I know Schuey2002 doesn't want to send anymore out but I really need a new pair of comps my polks blew off stinking deck power. Thanks in advance to anyone who will help me out.

bumpin_blazer
05-26-2005, 05:38 PM
I'd also like the pricing on this. I have a set of Rainbow ACS 265's ooops I mean Arc;), but if the price is right I could use a 5.25" set for the little ladies car.

Maybe start another thread talking about the speakers again :D and leave this one to the dogs (I know I'm one of the troublemakers, but I'm trying to redeem myself :p: )

Did you get that deadener yet and get a chance to try em out? Cant wait to hear how they sound. Since you said you're pairing em up with some old alpines, are you crossing the Rainbows pretty high and just using em for mids, or will they fill mid-bass duty too?

Schuey2002
05-27-2005, 12:09 PM
Nope, I'm still waiting for the deadener to get here..

I plan on crossing the Rainbows somewhere around 200-240hz, and using them only for mid range duty. My GD's are going to handle everything else below that (well, down to about 80hz or so). :)
