Hi guys,

Been browsing for quite a while now but i have decided to register and post my first post!

I would love some advice or recommendations regarding a set of 6.5 comp speakers i'd like to buy.

Im thinking about the following:

- DLS UP6
- Image Dynamics CXS62/64
- Diamond HEX S600s
- DynAudio 240 GT from ecarhifi for $439 shipped

I was originally looking into the JL XR range, but have not heard that great things about them.

My budget is $440 MAX.

Im looking a for a great overall sound. Am i overlooking any other brands?

Id appreciate any guidance. Thanks in advance.

Well to tell you the truth my friend I am on a mission....to create consumer consciousness about all that is Seas. In my own need to satisfy my ego, I post the recommendation on the Perfomance set at least every other day on this forum and will continue to do so until someone takes advantage of this incredible deal. Do search on that brand and make the call for yourself.

And it's not funny kenny, I WILL succeed:laugh:

looks like your on a one man mission!!!
I see from your sig that your not using seas gear, why would that be if you recommend them so highly!??
whats so good about them...
id like a subjective opinion, not a biased one! :)

Well zakh i haven't heard the complete set of the performance but i heard the set above the performance set, the reference set, and it sounded awesome. go to elitecaraudio.com and i believe a couple of people have done a review on the performance set. the company seas is a very reputable company and huge in the home audio industry. Also just wait and i'm sure GSTeg will chime in on the seas lotus stuff. he's used it plenty of times. if you doesn't come in this thread, pm him.

fox, i've got 1 person that already took my recommendation of the seas lotus reference set ;) . Up one on you :D.

hi alpha, so why are the seas good? i have heard nothing about this company???

well i heard the reference set like i said, not the performance but the reference set was very detailed and smoothe. the midrange on the reference set is absolutely awesome and the midbass is definately there. the tweets were just amazing. didn't get harsh at high volumes at all. it was very detailed. i didn't notice any major flaws in the set.

try pm'ing GSTeg and some guy named chadillac3. they both heard the performance and i believe chaillac3 owned the performance set for a couple of years from what i've read. pm them and ask for details. i just heard the set for a good half hour though and these guys owned seas lotus for a good period of time. but i was very impressed in the half hour i was in that car.

what about the dynaudio?
www.ecarhifi.com has them for $440 shipped...is that price too good to be true?

how would these compare with the seas?

thanks!

BS show me the receipt you bastard:mad: :D

For $440 I would go with the Dyns faster the Paris Hilton goes down on a meat stick:yumyum: I fact, I'm going to that site to check em out myself right now!

But seriously, I would really be worth it to check out that Performance set...not everday you get a 10% discount on a top of the line product like that...ever seen a discount on a Bentley:uhoh:

It depends what you like. If you like warm sounding speakers, get the DLS. If you like neutrality, get the Dynaudio.

DLS and Dynaudio are on top of the list If i had to choose from your list.

The Image Dynamics sounded a bit congested when I heard them (in most install). They aren't bad at all, just not as clear as I would like, but that's just me. :D

It all started with my obsessant need to live vicariously through others by getting them to buy high end equipment that I want, but cannot afford. The Performance set is one such item, both because it can get the job done very nicely and because it is only 90% of it's everday price. I just get sick of the "best component recommendation" threads...so I figured I would begin my mission to end all such posts with a prepackaged Seas recommendation that is quick, easy and effective:furious:

So far, kenny has been successful at closing one Reference recommendation...little ****....only playin kenny;)

So, what's your record GSteg?

components you can't afford? you have the vandium line, dls a5, mb quart raa4200 and a zapco c2k amp along with an eclipse HU and can't afford the performance set? :confused:

Can, ya probably, but I love my Rainbows too much for the time being. And when you are a savvy shopper like me, you can run that set up for around $1500 (excluding wire, box, etc):naughty:

You do realize that the company selling the Dyn's is in Singapore, right:eyebrow:

[Where are we ? Strategic Location ! Singapore - free and busy port ensures economical and prompt delivery anywhere in the world. We are even more strategically located in Singapore - 53 Ubi Avenue 1 #03-03 Paya Ubi Industrial Park where consumers living in Singapore can reach us from major expressway.]

As far as other internet sites, not really sure...maybe woofersetc.com.

I would feel A LOT more comfortable buying from the guys at mobilesq.com than some company in Sinapore of all places....:eyebrow: Not to mention that the Seas would come with a warranty, at least I'm pretty sure they would. Too much risk on the Dyns for me.

i would do the id set up especially if you have an eq (pretty easy to broaden them with a 30 band) to me they are alot more dynamic than either the dls or dyns. when done right they have alot of energy which to me makes you forget you are listening to speakers.

I heard the DLS and S600s of Diamond....

the HEX´s sound better than DLS , they have a lot of power, lound and very very clean sound...

the DLS have a natural sound, but the mids are "extinguished" ... but with some tweaks, they sound better....

I never heard anything about Dyns (in car audio, in home its excelent) and ID

Seas have been producing loudspeakers since the middle 1920`s. so they arent exactly a newcomer in the business. they are also located in Norway, less than 300km away from where i am located.

I dont have any experience with ID, but a lot of good things have been said about them.

DLS UP series are supposely good, but personally i would go with the UR serie instead (or buy the orginal Morel stuff) :yumyum:

Dynaudio are well known for high end gear and would probably be a good (but maybe pricey) choice
