Ok i dont want a set of component speakers because i dont want to have to deal with the imageing, and all the other stuff that goes with it. Plus i have a ranger and its hard to find a spot to put the things. So i want to know whats a top notch set of coaxials that will sound just as good as a component set. I'm not sayin i want them to sound like a 2k set of comps, i just want them to sound pretty good like a 150-300 dollar pair of comps. They will be amped by a orion that puts out the rms of the speaks. So i wanna spend anywhere from 150-250 at most.

Pioneer REV are some very good co-axials....probably some of the best sounding co-axials.


Though, if you want, you could go for a component set with co-axially mounted tweeters such as the Boston Acoustic's Pro series, Image Dynamics Chameleon's and Memphis Syncs offer. Quality of components with the convenience of co-axials.

Around $250-$300, depending on where you look.

I've heard the Boston Acoustic Rally series coaxials and was blown away by how they sounded. Better than any coaxials i have heard before both in 6.5 inch and 6x9.

im lookin for some coax also, ive narrowed it down 2 the DA d661i and the pioneer REVs. i'd check into those, they look like some awesome coax.

well i was looking at the revs, and the only reviews i found were at sounddomain, they seemed to not like em but usually they dunno whats going on. The daimonds would work but the tweeter holder thing that attached to the speaker wouldnt look lik ei twould fit in the stock locatin in my truck. I was maybe thinking about the bostsons they posted or the daimond audio there are the daimonds i was talking about

as i stated you asked about coax's i'd go focal 165cv

or just get some components that have the flex option where u can out the tweeter to the mid such as image dynamics (wow did i just say ID - WOW)

I can't stand the seller.....but the price is excellent and the performance of those speakes is very, very good. Honestly, probably one of the best for your price range.


I'm going to be running the 8" version as soon as I get around to building kicks...probably after the 1st of the year.

I'll be running the 6.5" version of those in the coming months :)

ID Chameleons were my first choice, but 3.25" mounting depth is tough in stock locations.

BA Pro60's would be good if you have the amplifier power for them...they're hungry little beasts.

either the polk momo coaxials, diamond d3's, or the pioneer tsd-??? the rev series with the yellow cones. the pioneers will be louder though. and for a smoother sounding speaker with more mid-bass, the zapco iforce coaxial is a good option as well. those would be my top four.

Psh, at least I won't have to change my name...
You wouldn't have a problem fitting the D661i in your door due to the factory grill, but they are quite deep that is the only problem I have encountered with them so far. IMO they are a lot better then the REV 6.5s.

the sound a little better, but cant even come close to keeping up loudness wise. they revs will get louder and sound better at higher volumes.

pm Tplaya07 on dls stuff, he's an authorized dealer and hooks people up on here all the time.

-I also like the D661i, they sound really nice, and I wasn't that impressed with the Rev Pioneers myself (5x8/6x8) I had them in my tacoma and as rear fill in my current car until I recognized the evil inherent to rear fill. I have had MB Quart coaxes and as long as you don't mind a bright tweeter they sound very good too. That's my only issue with quarts and Focals, some of those tweeters will saw your ear off, but a bright tweeter may be advantageous low in the door of a pickup.

id personally make an adaptor for your truck (i have a ranger too) and i put 5.25 alpine type s in the doors insted of the 6x8s and it improved SQ ALOT...just my .02

12-15-2005, 12:11 PM
thats what i was planning on doing if i didnt get a set of 6x8's bu ti was going to get a 6.5" instead of the 5 1/4

Jdizzle
12-15-2005, 02:17 PM
yeah you have to cut the door though...i tried to fit 6.5s but it was way to small for it, my g/f has some infinty kappa 6x8s in her ranger though and they sound really good too....it just depends on what you get i guess

12-15-2005, 02:23 PM
I have had inifinity's before didn tlike em very much. Is it that big of a cut?

I've found infinity's to be lacking in the midbass dept. compared to a lot of others

playa1
12-15-2005, 02:50 PM
i dont see why if i made a adapter out of like 1/2 or 1/4 mdf it would space it out enough to fit the 6.5 speaker into the 6x8 spot? Would this work? Have the adapter hole size for the 6.5 and the speaker mounted to the adapter, then since the speaker narrows down as it goes to the magnet, it would fit into the whole without cutting it. If you dont get what i am saying i will draw a picture or something in paint.

JL XR coaxils sound absolutely fantastic. Most impressive set of coaxils I have ever heard. They were running on a 300/2 in a work van off an eclipse HU. Things just ripped.

i have heard those as well. we go through a lot of coaxials because of the boats, usually at least 4 sets per boat. the pioneer revs are usually the loudest and best sounding at higher volumes, the momos are loud and about the same as the diamond d3's. i have eight d3 6.5"s in my boat with a zapco 1000.4 and the highs sound the same, i also have a d3 12" in my boat, super clean bass. anyway, i kill this guy all day that has three JL 300/2s and twelve xr 6.5"s.

never heard the 6.5s but the carbon fiber momos are good but pricey; i think polks prone to have their surrounds ripped easily???

I have the exact same issue with the 6x8 opening, but I want to use 6.5" components...What do I do?...In fact they are the Boston Acoustics Pro60, does the tweeter have to stay in the center of the woofer, or can you mount it anywhere?... I can only order them online, and am afraid they may not fit once I get them...I need to install them a '00 mustang if that helps at all...

well you could do that but if its spaced to far from the accuall door its gonna rub the doorpanel...you would'nt have to cut alot

12-16-2005, 09:05 AM
Well if it rubs the door panel, ill cut it, and use the grilles tha come with the speakers :) or fiberglass something up. dunno. But it should work. i thank all of you for your help. im gonna end up getting the dls or those crystal ones.

no, we put tons of power on them and use them in harsh enviroments, boats. moisture and sunlight all day, when playing for 5+ hours per day at ridiculous volumes.

memphis syncs 5.25" with about 70-80 watts clean power and you be set especially if you went in kicks. they also can be seperated if you wanted but i dont . can be had for under 200 and they do bring up 20k unlike some other coax in their price range lol

hey, dont have room for kickpanels, has ot be in stock location.

audiolife
12-16-2005, 11:29 PM
even if not in kicks they are pretty strong. they have x overs like regular components and the mid is very forgiving in door locations. they arent "sharp" sounding and are rather neutral very good for rock music. if you are into rap you might not like the tweeter unless you amp them strong. (i send mine 80 + watts rms)

playa1
12-17-2005, 11:35 AM
i will be giving whatever i get just a litt bit more than the rms from a orion amp.

i think one is an oversized speaker, or might fit different bolt patterns. look at the tsd-160r's,those are the revs. that is the speaker to have in coaxials.
