Trying to conteplate chainging my Peerless 2" domes and Illusion Nd8s for:

DLS Iridium 8s
DLS Iridium3s

Dyn MD140s
Dyn MW170s

Current setup is
Stock HU
Arc DXE
Arc 4150XXK Illusion Nd8/ Rainbow CAL26s
Arc 2500XXK 2 Flatline 12s
Arc 2100XXK..Peerless domes

I like warm natural sound, with a decent amount of midbass. I pretty much have my opinion set, but wanted feedback. Please keep in mind it doesnt have to be a "brand matched set" meaning I could use an Iridium8 with MD140s, or vice versa.



BTW..

Manny I KNOW your opinion already :laugh:

I have the Dls up6's and they are the best front stage speakers I have heard for the money. After talking with the guys at avincar (they deal Dyn also) they think the up6 is the best speaker not $750 like the dyns. I considered Iridiums, but to me the idea of an unpressed paper cone in the door in the pacific northwest seemed like a setup for disaster. From what they told me, the iridiums can be made to sound better, but it takes a lot of tuning to get there where up6's are a plug and play deal. I think you will be happy with either set, If you are doing kicks, the iridiums would be a great choice, I just wouldn't trust them in a door. If the woofs are going in the door, I'd probably do either Dls UR6's or Dls UP6's prior to the iridiums, just due to the moisture deal. Of course if you wand that 8" mid, the iridiums are it.

I've witnessed the Iridium 6 play SOLID down to 50hz IB in doors, in one of my buddy's car- no tunning....dont see why the doors would be an issue, regardless of moisture...thats what caraudio products are made to endure...

Don...you know i feel Dyn all the way....its THE CLASSIC...but the 170's might not satisfy your cone area craving...I say look into the 190's
Dyn's sizing is a lil' odd.

Besides those basketball grills are teh pukey...

Thats how my thoughts are going right now. I was actually considering the 190s as I read this.Tried callin ya earlier, but you were a bit busy (about time :D).

The MD140s are definately going in, basketballs are left at the court. ;)

ummmm to me its funny. if you see/hear what they do it does work but for the price? ehhhhh no ... still dependant on alot of things and its probably one of those things that doesnt get talked about

no i actually got into an arguement about them lol all they are basically is a self adjusting x over. lol i used to sell 20k speakers and tube amps and mumbo jumbo to me 2/3s of that stuff is over priced bull crap but enough people buy into it. it basically makes the speakers more dynamic and handle more power. the cars they were in sounded nice but imo they arent light years ahead of anything which is how the arguement started out as anyway lol

you could always get a nice Eton 7-375 7” HEXACONE Woofer

http://www.madisound.com/cgi-bin/index.cgi?cart_id=9897866.23058&pid=283

is it a good speaker? hell if i know, but it looks cool and costs alot.

Hmmm....

Eton (an OEM manufacturer) has a "hexacone" driver.

Diamond had a "hexacone" driver.

You can connect the dots ;)

Yes, I should point out that Eton does not currently make the Diamond speakers (that I'm aware of). But back in Diamond's "prime" they were.

I ended up going with the Dyn MD140/MW170 as well as a set of MD130s to replace my Rainbow CAL26 tweets.

Not to burst your buble, but the term best is Way to subjective. What sound good or "best" to you I may hate. Not saying anything bad about the ologys, Im just stating to claim theyre the best is a bold blanket staement.

Please dont dare me. Dealer accomidations have Very good perks.

you have a very good point

fine more clear for the money!

there is a difference between warmth and clarity, and although i believe the rs combines both in a very good way there is better... but for the money? im doubting it

The man builds great crossovers. To me thats useless. Ive run active for the past several years. The drivers he uses I can also purchase at the same price points.

Like I said as well...dealer accomidation has its perks. When Im getting 25-60% off dealer cost, then yes better can be had for me for the money.

x2...

Some of you newbs dont realize that these drivers have ALWAYS been out there before Ology...and no offense I'm sure he builds a fine xover...but the $150 you spend on some passives built on a piece of plywood you can use for 2 extra ch's of amplification or an electronic xover that'll you actually give you some flexibility in the car so you can tune yourself...
