Searched didn't find what i was looking for

Anyway tomorrow im going to purchase my speakers. Im planning on getting The Iridium 6.2s, but was wondering if there were any better options in the price range (im getting them for about 475 new) of 850 or whatever there MSRP is. I know its all opinion but what are some speakers you guys think are better in that price range?





Regards,
Preston Mossman

Better is pretty subjective. There are, however, other speakers you could consider such as the Boston Z6, Focal PolyKevlar K2P's, Dynaudio, MB Quart Q series, Rainbow Pro Line or Pro-Vandiums.....there's more, that's all I can think of.

Forgot about me? :( or just waiting till I send ya a sample? :) I'm working on that one -- going to send ya an xover with all the diffrent options out there... High power protect the tweeter better -- low power higher quality -- and just some tweaks... need to get some nice switches and make a little box for ya though...

yeah, they have a unique surround that gives them linearity like no other.

I have the space 6's in my ride and they amaze me on a daily basis.

just get the 6.2's and be done, oter options will likely cost more. Unless you want to spend more, then get something else. Any of those choices and you will not be disapointed.

Dayton RS 7" mids and LPG tweets. About $145 of DIY speakers compared to $700 on the DLS. Guaranteed to outdo those DLS as well

if ur gonna go comp set, the DLS will be fine if u enjoy a nice, laid back, natural sound.

however, like AzGrower said, i would much rather go DIY.

yes it's true...
calm the hell down.

and when it comes to DIY, the variety of good, reasonably priced drivers is great.
the downside, you gotta know wth you're doing. good processing, install, and xovers are in order.

Thanks for the kind words :) MY goal is to have DIY drivers available to the public and go more mainstream with use of my passive xovers... help keep costs low for the average public and let the small dealers compete with online sales... with these pasive filters you get as close to optimal performance that you can get short of 31 band eqs for each driver as well as an amp channel for each driver :)

late 2moro there is going to be a review of someone that installed me PL7 set today -- replaced his ED 6500s with a less expensive component set that blew it away... better midbass -- more midrange clarity -- better imaging -- more resolution in the tweeter -- massive high quality parts that almost don't fit in your doors :)
