I'm getting tired of my crappy coaxial speakers. The more I listen to them the more I realize they sound like crap. Recently I just got in a wreck, and I did the repairs myself, so I have about $1200 extra to spend on my car. :veryhapp:

I don't want to spend way too much money for a top of the line set of speakers, I think I can get really good sound for $180 or so. I'm pretty flexible with price though, so I can go up if it is really worth it.

My main concerns are that they can play at loud volume levels while still sounding good, have great midbass/midrange response, and have very soft tweeters. I hate harsh high pitches. I plan to do some sound deadening so they will be working to their potential.

I might buy another amp as well, as my current one *****, so can anyone recommend a good amp to power them with?

starsky - where can I find a page about the EF-24's? I've searched cdtaudio.com and found other EF's but not the 24's

Maybe a set of the ED comps, with a 9.4 to power them? You can use the system builder discount to get 15% off, might as well pick up some deadening too...
