I have the 5 1/8" version of these speakers and for the money I like them.
Pros: SQ is great, tweets are silk(soft, no tinny painful sound).
Cons: Not as loud as I'd like. I'm only running front comps but they're only slightly louder than the four speakers I originally had.

If you just want something that sounds very good, the rainbow dream line will do you wonderfully. If you want something louder that won't sound quite as good, get like.. CDT EF-61's.

Another suggestion in that price range would be the Alpine Type X. Do some searches on those.
I've had the EF61 and they get plenty loud and have lots of midbass.

I know what you mean about the local brands ;-p

'wtf is an rl-p? how is it louder than my type r?'

'rainbow speakers? are you gay?' *after a ride* 'okay, so I guess I want to taste the rainbow'

If you want louder speakers go for the ef-61s and pair them with a nine.2 amp or something, if you want more SQ aim for rainbow. You might be able to get some Rainbow Sound Line comps from some of the guys on this forum for under $200, and I'd probably choose those over the ef-61s.

I like the boston pro 60's and the z6's but both are a bit pricey. those ef's sound pretty good with some clean power going to them.
