i need some loud door speakers, i want to be able to hear words over my bass, turning the bass down defeats the purpose of having it, so what are my options not over 300$ ebay is fine i was looking at diamond hex, and some other different ones max mounting depth is 2.75 but i might could add maybe 1/4 inch spacer but it would be puching it any where over 100rms need them loud no crazy mods like 2 mids in each door or a 3way and i dont believe i have space for horns but i might

Well it's going to be pretty hard to battle an 18" MT in the front-stage. :)

But...this is a perfect opportunity to recommend some high-efficiency drivers or better yet, HORNS.

the sixty's i think... i forgot, pm Lowlinc. he has the loudest frontstage ive ever heard. of course he did a really good job installing them.

the focals can only be had for like 270 ish

I think these are the ones that are supposed to get very loud and sound great doing it, but I'm not entirely certain.

the focals flakko was referring to were the 165v2's u can get the 165v1's for around 220ish shipped on ebay... higher end bostons can get loud but they're power hungry, from what i was told...

i like my ES-600s which are loud screamers. And for a tweet i'd suggest a Focal for them cause they very very clear at loud volumes just too harsh for me though.

the pro60's will get very loud indeed. 100 watts per side is enough to do them well :) my Z's get PLENTY loud, and have gobs of midbass to boot. the pro's will give you 80% of the performance of the Z's for less money, but when you start cranking it the Z's will walk away from the pro's like nothing else. however, if you only have 100 watts per channel, then the pro's might be a better choice. the Z's want a fair bit more power than that.

I have the sl60's and I am not overly satisfied with them, although I don't have my doors sealed. I will be getting a new vehicle soon and I am debating whether or not I should keep them or upgrade to the Pro's or possibly OZ Audio Matrix Elites. How satisfied are you with the Pro's and can you compare them to the sl60's? (BTW I am giving mine around 100 wrms)

Use those **** XXX6.5's and find a suitable Car Audio Tweeter.

I use mine in 2-way active with Vifa 1" Neodymium Textile dome tweeters. 200rms per side on the XXX's and 25rms per side on the tweeters...and it's plenty clear over my MT15 and the 20.1 @.35ohms....

Well, it'll be tough...if not nearly impossible... to fit the bill with your requirements. ;)

sealing off your doors will make a huge difference, regardless of what speakers you are using. before upgrading, i would recommend sealing the doors off and see how it does. you might be suprised. keep in mind that how your system sounds is 10% equipment, and 90% install. the SL's are a great sounding speaker for the money. i had a set for a year or so but for what i was looking for, they just weren't cutting it. i was running them off a boston GT22, about 100 watts per side. i have never owned the pro's personally, but installed plenty of them, and they are a considerable step up from the SL's. the midbass will increase dramatically from the SL's, and they will get VERY loud. my only complaint about the pro's is that the tweets tend to be on the bright side. nothing a bit of EQ'ing cant fix, but be prepared to spend a little tuning time to get them right. i own the Z6's and have no complaints whatsoever about them :) the tweets on the Z's are waaaaaaaaaaaaaay smoother than the pro's, and there is gobs and gobs of midbass. even with my subs turned off, it still sounds like i have an 8 or 10" sub hidden somewhere in the dash... enough to make my rear view mirror move :) as said before, the pro's will give you 80% of the performance of the Z's for about 400 bucks less, however when you really start cranking it the Z's will quickly pull away from the pro's. as a comparison, going directly from the SL60's to the Z6 on the same amplifier (before i bi-amped the z's) was like going from factory speakers to the SL's. huge difference.

that *****...


or a better solution would be get a set of the Z6's, ditch the rear speakers completely and amp the **** out of the Z's. the only time you really need rear speakers is if you are running 5.1 anyways... my opinion may be a bit biased, but anyone will agree they are a great speaker, and will last you a very long time to come :)

Used the Diamonds Hex's...hated them. You need to POUR power on them to sound anywhere near good, mid-bass is lacking.... :(

i have the pro 6.5s. i fed em about 125rms a side and they got loud, but the tweeters were harsh(possibly location) and would go into protect mode after about a minute. i ended up just using the mids and going active using aura tweets.

ill have to look into those different ones
i think the diamond hex will work i got the 5.25 and they blow out a thousand watts going to two 12s ultimately it drowns out the bass

you get the 6.5 will be even better for you
they dont really shine in my opion untill you get the system cranked
it sounds like factory stuff at low volume
