I haven't heard either, but from what I've seen and read I'd choose the extremis, PM undercoverpunk, he has a set of them, he posted a vid of them a while back and they looked like they slammed, I remember it showed his side mirror shaking with no subs playing, only the extremis mids and some tweets.

Extremis. I've heard from a couple sources that the xxx's dont sound that natural (not that that's really a big concern to someone running 6 xxx18s :p: ) I really enjoy my extremii, probably one of the best purchases I've made. Nice smooth extension down low and midrange is decent.
Also keep power in mind, with the extremis being 8ohm and the xxx's being 2ohm.

*edit* swc204 beat me on the diyma links.

i chose XXXs because was too n00bx to figure out an 8 ohm setup; and because my doors could accomodate its big mounting depth. they easily shake up my non-deadened doors. i run them in a bastardized 3 way setup with the regular RE component set.

the way i see it: XXX = spl , extremis = sq ; performance: extremis > XXX

from what i've heard the XXX has some mechanical noise and the SQ isn't as natural as most like. The Extremis is always getting some love out there. Also many people are liking the Dayton Reference woofers.

I enjoy my XXX6.5's...

What pisses me off is half the ******* people who ***** about the XXX mids have never even heard them...EVER. They just link to they ghey review. I listen to them on a daily basis and love them, they blend well with my Vifa tweets...and my good friend who is a HARDCORE Home Audio SQ guy...likes them as well.

I challenge people to come hear them properly setup. Stop by anytime ;)...

Is the review ghey because his opinion doesn't agree with yours?

Or because he's right and you don't want to admit it? :p:

man you guys must have the luxury of big doors to have the ability to run deep drivers like that.

My stock doors were limited to under a puny 3" after 3/4" baffle. :(

Mine were smaller than that, I had to go with a 1/2" baffle :crap:

Mids like that aren't really destined for doors, anyway :)

SQ is extremely subjective...and as you said it's his opinion. My OPINION is correct as well ;).

Also, mine are in fiberglass sealed door pods.

On another note, I've also heard Extremis'...several times.

what kind of music do you listen to? (not trying to start anything) but on rap the xxx mids are good but on alot of sq tracks i listened to they were punchy and flat at the same time lacked "livelyness or natural realism "ummm lol(trying to think of the right word for it lol) i heard quite a few show cars with them inside but none compete in sq. not saying they are bad just people should know its tendancies. as a pure mid bass playing in a limited band width should negate any problem (if you want to call it one as they still blow away most other car speakers)

I listen to A LOT of rock, all types....as well as some rap.

I'm not saying they're going to get a perfect score in an SQ competition, but I like them...a lot.

ya, i first heard about them in your thread at the dakota forum. also at this point they're harder to locate. an extremis can be bought direct from adire's webstorefront.

A XXX mid under high excursion will look pretty much the same as an extremis under high excursion.

IMO...
Ascendant mid > Extremis 6.8 > XXX 6.5

****, I'm glad I read this post. It looks like the Ascendant 6.5" is some pretty nice stuff, and it will replace the Extremis in my future project, hell of alot cheaper too, with that price difference I can get more drivers!! Sweetness.

:D

more drivers.... yikes. Like I've said before, they aren't as bass heavy, but the midrange sounds better IMO and for $64 less... they are the way to go IMO.

It'll be atleast 2 6.5"s per tower.

They will be powered by one ART SLA-1 Rack amp, possibly 2 of them, (130x2 @4ohms, 260x1), this will be for my dorm setup for next year. Haven't quite figured out the sub setup yet, I'm leaning on a RL-i 8" ported to 25hz.

For that kind of price, it dosen't look like they can be beat, hell, ~140 bucks in 6.5's is a heck of alot better than 400 bucks in Extremis
