Best SQ components, 6.5, with volume, to be powered off 75 or 150 RMS @ 4 ohms, off a zapco C2K 3.0x amplifier. May the opinons begin. Please state why you think they sound good. Also money is not really a concern.

i just love it when people say money's not an object. well while you're at it you should go out and buy a brax amp and then some 300 dollar rca's. will you be putting this in your bently? or veyron?

If money is not a concern, Pyramid makes a great component set... I hear they have tweeters that aren't attached to the speaker.

Well I made specifications for what amp it has to run on. Most speakers in that range will have a natural price limit, as with all speaker drivers in general. It is hard to come by 1500 dollar components that only use 75 watts. I meant price in the power range is not an issue. But thanks :)

(Oh and I didn't mean to come off as an *** either in the first post, reread it and realized I sound like a snooty little person. Their going in my pickup! Sorry again for sounding a little I dunno. )

Now seriously quit poking fun at the new kid and help :)

IN that case...Rainbow Soundlines. they have great detail and clarity and are not harsh on the ears. :)

No I personally like Maybach and Maserati with a Rolls on the side. See them driving down 1709 here all the time while listening to my country music in my hail damaged 99 truck... Oh well I live for fun, not for work.

What specs do they require? Any reviews of them? Whose a dealer? Some of these companies are so tiny information is hard to find. What other brands have you tried or can compare them to?

Taylor...let me just say that I ran my Rainbows off the 3.0 and they did just fine. If you want to spend some money on a nice, efficient comp set look at the Lotus Reference Range avail from www.mobilesq.com (http://www.mobilesq.com)

The Rainbow Profi's are an excellent choice as well and can be had for a little less.

CDT, IMO is just so average....you could do much better for the $$$.

PM 6spdcoupe or me to find out more info. He is a dealer who sells Rainbow, DLS, etc. I have compared them to these brands: CDT, Alpine, Infinity, and MB. IMO they are the best from the brands mentioned.

Anyoe else dealt with these rainbows? The Lotus's also seem like a good choice. I wish I could hear them before I buy them, and see how loud they are/distortion and all of those goodies.

Did you read any of the reviews at http://www.diymobileaudio.com/forum/

There is a lot of useful info there where people have compared the ranbows, CDT's, SEAS, ect. There is hours of reading to be had there!

Polk SR6500. Named the highest ranked 6.5" in a recent Car Audio and electronics review. I have heard them and they are incredible. (although I was comapring them to focal, JL, and Boston Pros and can't say I have heard the rest mentioned. I will say they are the best i have heard, and IMO cheap to boot at $800 retail.
