So im about to up north a little to hear these guys, but i just want some input before i leave since i will mostly be hearing a demo cd or whatnot. reading about these speakers in this forum i kept on hearing that these show no mercy towards burned or bad quality recorded cd's? wow how much of that is true?

i have the slc's and i agree with chinny. they are awesome. and i think its a good thing that it exposes badly ripped cd's it just shows you how in depth the speakers are. for the price, its a great buy. i'd go for it.

I dont have the sound lines but the profi's and they are the best sounding speaker I have ever heard. I refuse to play burned CD's you def dont get the quality you get from a CD that was purchased at a store...

I could take this into consideration if you heard the

Dynaudio 220MKII

or the


Iridium 6.2

Good bit more money than the SLC's, but maybe closer to what you're looking for:

I have alot of burned cds and mp3 is a reason why

seas lotus, cdt, Idirulus<spelling> and dynaudio is a option

what ever is chosen will be pushed by an a.600 white art series ppi amp

Semi-Auto,

This site has the new Rainbows, but you should be able to find a somewhat better price:

http://www.iqcaraudio.com/rainbow/profi_vanandium/index.htm

This site shows the older version, no longer available, but they can get the newer version:

http://www.speedsound.com/caraudio.asp?pg=products&specific=jncqdrdrc

Or you can check with an Alumapro dealer since Alumapro is now the distributor.

Here are a couple of posts on the Vanadium Kick Bass. There are a number of other posts, just search for "kick bass". There are also posts on the SLC speakers.

Drawback is no warranty if bought online.

Who said that the iqcaraudiowebsite had the '05s? Looks like a generic picture with newer mids for everything they have.

I'm waiting to have my sets compared with those profis... lol :) -- I know mine will own them in terms of midbass... i mean the profis only have 4mm of xmax so says their pdf they yanked atleast... -- resolution too ;) -- at the least they have better resolution than some nice Paradigm Signature S8 home audio towers at $6k/set... and that is saying something -- the paradigms image a little better than the Dayton RS sets in my car though... but what do you expect :)... proper setup in home vs almost proper setup in the car.... with no damping in the doors...

love my slc's, get nice and loud DOES NOT get harsh with a cd. but wiht mp3 cds and poorly burned cds it doesnt sound to good.not bad but not real good.needless to say since i installed them ive baught around 8 or 9 cds, and ive had them in for 2 weeks.

so i got to listen to them and they were amazing when it came to bought cd's. very impressive. but then i pulled out some of my burned cd's, and not that they sounded horrible, but there were a lot of notes hidden, lets say. But these speakers just make me want to buy cds. thank you guys for the input on this thread.

yea i put in some old cd's that i burnt in like 2000 or 2001 and wow it sounded ******. mainly probably cuz they were bad quality downloads. but lately the songs i download have been pretty high quality and it sounds great. i hope you enjoy them if you decide to purchase them.

well if they sound better then Dyna I guess its between the
3 way Kick Bass Profi Vanadium or the Iridium 6.2

You heard his set but how would it sound playing Raw hip hop
