View Full Version : ~$150 Comp Set

11-23-2005, 09:43 PM
What kind of choices do I have. I dont really know much about these kind of set ups. I want to put a comp set up front and maybe a set of 5.25s in back. I would leave them empty but I have an Expedition and they need to hear in the back too. Ill probably get a Orion 4002 for the comps. Right now I have a [email protected] Kenwood amp I can use for tweeters in an active? setup if I choose to go that route. Any suggestions on what to use?

Or I could put a comp set up front and amp a pair a 5x7 coaxials in the rear off of the Kenwood amp/Cd Player.

OZ Audio Vectors from Tplaya07. They're rated at 50wrms, so they're a perfect match for that Kenwood amp. PM him for prices and whatnot, last I knew he offered them at $140 shipped.

As far as the back goes, decent coaxials off HU power will do nicely. Take a listen at locals dealers, Best Buy, Circuit City, Walmart, anywhere they are sold.

im looking for the same thing right now, a good component set for 150. So far I've been looking at the CDT cl-61a. Any thoughts on these?

I have the cdt cl-61a's they are good for the price and thats all I got to say. They can also take a beating. They don't seem to get that loud also but they are probaby by far the best speakers for the price.

rainbow soundlines can get them off the forums for around 150 i belive thye make themm in 6.5 and 5inch but not forsure.

Rainbow Soundlines run $300 new. You'd have to buy them used for $150. That's another story, and a whole new world of SQ. =)

Bump. I might pay up to 200 depending on the set, price of amp I will need, etc. Any more suggestions?

All I'll say is that they are in no way a bad component set, and the opportunity to have them for so little won't present itself again.

Man, the way you phrase that makes me want to threaten the bank to put my money in my account on Sunday...lol.

11-27-2005, 06:03 PM
those are already sold though?

11-27-2005, 08:22 PM
I plan on getting these. Im putting the rest of the money I need in my bank account on Monday. They are sold to me pending payment. :D
What kind of RMS power should on put on them?

Ive stumbled upon a set of Arc 265s . Pretty much Rainbows from what I understand. They are still under the 200 mark. Is this a better deal than the above mentioned?

11-28-2005, 04:34 PM

Flip a coin, either way you'll be making a thread about how great your new comps are. =) I recommend your first choice, still, because they are rarer. You can always get Arcs later on in the future.

You need to get out more then..........

Cool. Thanks for all the help, especially Raven. More than likely, Ill be buying them today. :D

Those MB Quarts are quite nice, one of my co-workers has a three way setup in that same series I belive in his car. They handle a lot of power and sound very very sharp and accurate. Much better then type-r's ;)
I would be surprised if you didn't like them after you got them.

u kno whats strange, for some reason I thought this squeak was the other squeak and I was starting to wonder why he wanted $150 comps lol. I knew something wasnt right.
