More geared towards the budget minded, but look to be quite nice as well..

CSX465 double midbass set:
http://car.rainbow-audio.de/products/details.php?lan=2&pro=1&lin=9&art=231064

Here is a text a German car hifi magazine wrote:
The CSX 465.20 with its double Woofer is persuasive with a full and crisp bass
rendition typical of coated paper cones. A plastic phase plug assists the system
in achieving a perfect mid-tone projection. Because not everyone can accommodate
two woofers per side, Rainbow now also offers the SAX 265.20 with an aluminum
cone. This woofer impresses with a rendition equally impressive as that of the
CSX 265 and offers a little more in regard to dynamics.

Are these new lines (CSX265 and SAX265) going to be comparable in midbass output with the SLC line? I'm not sure why Rainbow would start another speaker line so close in price to the SLCs.

Dreamline tweeter with new better mids, a phaseplug one at that as an option. More powerhandling, better crossovers. Just gives you options. BTW the prices Don posted are cheap, but they are not MSRP;)

how do these compare to the SLC? they seem to be in the same price range, so are they about equal?

The SLC tweeter is still better, a tad larger in diameter. Cal 20 is smaller format, you can pivot them . The phase plug version of Dreamline suggest a nicer detailed midrange compared to the regular versions, I bet with a tad less output- kinda looks like the cone material Focal uses for the Utopias. The aluminum coned version looks like it will give you the best of both worlds- basically that tweeter mated to the Powerline CMX mids it appears. In those regards this may be the set to go with to get most bang for the buck in the Dream Line.

Now the dual midbass set, for those than can fit it- should deliver some sick performance with the cone area and phase correction going on there- should be pretty insane. Thats 4 phase plug drivers, 2 xovers, and 2 tweeters (every driver can actively hadle a nominal 100rms) with the right tunning and install this $270 set is a steal for a complex system on a budget.
