I listen to alot of death metal, black metal and rock. I'll be running them with my Kicker IX404 bridged(120rms x2).
I was looking at the CDT EF-61CF's. I can't go over $200.

....so what happens IF you do go over $200... Does your head explode? Does your mom blow your dads head off with a shotgun and then finish herself off? Does a whole clan of wolf spiders crawl out of your ***?

What's the deal. I don't get it.

the cmx's from rainbow will probably be good for you. i've seen reviews and they are pretty good for rock music.

It REALLY depends on how you install them.

Custom glass door enclosure. Waiting to get the speakers, then I can hopefully find out how big to make them.

My doorpods are HUGE... I'm really pleased with the results though... although, I've dumped far more into my frontstage lately than you probably ever would be able to justify... just cause I'm tarded like that.

Really all of the choices are fine setups... and without hearing them for yourself before purchasing them it's all going to be like shooting in the dark. Just keep looking at all your choices and pick the one that you get the best feeling about.

that's my 2 cents atleast.

I demo'd the Crystals, the Diamonds above and countless others. I went with the Crystals. All I listen to is rock and metal and for me the Crystals sounded the best.

I think someone said in one of the Crystal threads that the Comp set was designed for rock music.

With death metal wouldn't you just need a pair of loud coaxials.??:crap:

wow,someone actually had Crystals on Demo...thats awsome
Speakers aren't necessarily designed for 1 genre of music but
the crystals will get the job done for rock and or rap as a good speaker
makes any tyoe of music sound good.
Good choice,just get a beefy amp to power them up and you'll be
golden !

i heard crystal's sound was compared to the k2p.. which makes it a harsh set.

I wouldn't say the Crystals sound harsh, but very clear and loud.

A friend of my soon to be brother in law has them in his Camaro.

Mine will be here tomorrow!

that was an ignorant statment........:rolleyes:
they are so far from being harsh its not even funny
and whats a k2p anyways?

jacka
07-18-2006, 10:11 AM
how is that an ignorant statement when that IS actually something that i've heard from someone on here? and if you did you looked around a bit, the k2p is about a 400 dollar focal set, which makes the sscs6 a good set if it is compared to the k2p, if you like that kind of sound. have i heard k2p's? yes.

And what does that have to do with speakers.?? A coxial is pretty much a mid bass with a tweeter so how is it so different.

MANY coaxials don't enjoy lots of midbass at high volumes.

ive never heard a coaxial sound anywhere close to a comp set
in any way

edit:and if thats true why doesnt everyone run coaxes instead?

Actually the point to my original post was that once you get so loud you're not going to reap the benefits of a nice comp set anyway because your ears will no longer be able to distinguish the difference.

04silverz
07-21-2006, 08:19 PM
so do you run coaxes?

i mean seriously i would rather have a set of comps playing at 60/80 on my radio than a pair of coaxes at the same level. most coaxes cant take near as much power and serisouy at any volume have way less midbass

alpines sound pretty good with metal.

the thing you don't want is bad tweets, you want something nice and smooth on your ears.

No, of course I don't run coaxials nor do I recommend them to anyone. What I said was if you're listening to METAL at loud levels then it wouldn't make much of a difference in sound between comps and coaxials because once your music is sooooo loud you can't hear the difference between the 2 types of speakers. In other words, the finer details that comps bring out in the music at low to moderate sound levels would not be nearly as evident at LOUD levels.

What's the deal. I don't get it.

It's called having a budget. Car Audio isnt the number 1 priority to some on here.
