Because their tweeters are harsh, and they dont produce midbass at all. They sound pretty clear though.

i know the top of the line kappa comps sell for $600 on crutchfield. the reviews i read on their site people seemed to be blown away.

i dont understand how a company could sell really crappy components for $600 and stay in buisness.

crutchfields prices are high. you can get the kappas for much cheaper than that else where. I still think infinity makes decent products, just need to work on their tweets, and midbass. They are far from crappy, but not high end imo.

Heres the 600 dollar comps you were talking about :rolleyes:

I agree with the harshness of the tweeters on the kappa's. I have 682.7cfs and while they are crystal clear the high-end is harsh. I called Infinity and they were of no help and would not provide the schematic for the crossover - I am going to take the crossover apart this weekend and see if I can tone down the tweeter. I was thinking simply putting a resistor in the circuit (don't know the exact value to use) but all this would really do is drop the overall volume of the tweeter. Does anyone have a suggestion on how to take the harshness out?

Well I just got them and they aren't that bad, in fact Im glad I got them. I had the Infinity Referance series and blew one of the mids(my fault). And these just sound alot better. I know now about the "they don't produce midrange well" that everyone is saying, but these kappas do, in fact I had to turn my mid eq levels down a bit cause these do so much better. Well the Reference series **** a s s.
