Hi I have been lurking around these forums for a little while, searching and learning.
im in a bit of a dilemma. Im want to do a 5.1ch system in my car, a 2003 accord coupe V6. i've narrowed down the component sets to two: the JL Audio ZR's or the Rainbow Germaniums. Ive listened to the ZR's and they sound pretty nice but I can't say the same for the rainbows. anyway which one is the better speaker set

ZR's
or
Germaniums

if it helps i listen to music like: Anthony Hamilton, Mary J. Blige, Nelly Furtado, Sade, Seal, and Linkin Park just to name a few.

Just my opinion....i have heard the JL ZRs and there were ok and highly over priced. I then bought the Rainbow Soundlines without even listening to them and going on the advice of others. I thought that the Soundlines sounded just as good if not better as the ZRs which were on the demo board compared to the Soundlines in my car. I would say go for the Germaniums since they are considerably better the Soundlines which I feel where equal to the JLs. I got the rainbows from Don (6spdcoupe), PM him and he is a great guy and will help you out if you have any questions.

If you dont have a dealer in your area then its possible, but at full MAP pricing. Of course I know you have a few dealers by you though.
