I'm currently running a set of Infinity Reference 5 1/4 components for my fronts. Tweets are at my mirror in stock mounting spot. Woofers in stock door mount. Hear lots of good things about Rainbow SLC's but dont know anyone in Minnesota that sells them.

I'm running 85w @ 4 ohms to fronts. Would a set of 5 1/4 SLC's be a decent upgrade for me? Whats the difference in sound between a standard SLC and an SLC Pro set?

Thanks

PS. Sounds like both my Infinity's and the Rainbows have silk dome tweets.

SLCs will mop the floor with Infinity speakers.

I know theres a couple of online dealers on these forums. Im not too sure about rainbow though. Maybe Tplaya07? I know he sells DLS.

Contact 3.5Max6spd for some Rainbows, he hooked me up with some Profi Kickbass :)

Thanks. So here a question: What line of Rainbows would be good? The Standard SLC line? THe SLC Pro line? As I mentioned originally, the Rainbow site isnt that great for giving you a way to compare. Whats the diff? Seems like most people here are runnign SLC's.

I'm thinking about a 2 year old set of Rainbow Pro CS230 P3. How would these compare to the newer SLC 230's and would $200 be a good price?

<whatever you decided to get, make sure its 6.5 >

My car is 5 1/4. Why would i get 6.5? I'm sure it would sound a bit better..but I dont want to add kick panels, etc to my setup.
