View Full Version : Component System Upgrade Help

05-29-2006, 02:07 AM
Hey guys, I'm new to the forum as you can tell. I need some input on which speakers to purchase and I thought this would be a good place to ask. I have a 1998 Passat V6 and Diamond 361 Components all around running off a Diamond D3 400.4 Amplifier. Recently I noticed that my front right tweeter isn't working, there is no output. I was planning on getting some new components for my front stage if I cannot fix the tweeter problem. So what I want to know is what component sets are good for my listening standards. I want clear and colorful music, midbass does not have to be great, and I don't want the tweeter too harsh. I felt that the tweeters from my D361 were too bright for my listening. I plan on bridging my amp and running the rear speakers from my head unit, so I'll have 182 watt RMS X 2 Channels to play with. My price range would be around 300-350. I know that's not much, but that's all I've got for speakers right now. The sets I were considering were the MB Quart QSC-216 and the Diamond HEX s600s. If you guys have opinions on those sets it'd be great, and if you have suggestions for other sets that would be even better. Thank you for your help.

IMO make the jump to rainbow germaniums @ 450$ shipped. Or go with the cheaper soundline's for ~230$
