If Im not mistaken (and Don can correct me on this) that speaker is no longer made and already several years old.

Wish I could read more of that, The Diamonds did really well in the scoring considering the competition.

yeah its definitely old, but i still have heard people owning the 265.02 and raving about its greatness.

Yes, because Diamond belongs in a comparison with Lanzar :rolleyes:

Lanzar is leaps and bounds above Diamonds and Rainbow :fyi:

What would be more interesting is if you picked up a set and provided an educated review of your own....

I would certainly not compare them to anything mentioned above. When a 'number' (meaning plural) of customers who spent top dollar for Diamond Hex's years ago when they were hot, have replaced their fronstage with SLC and been happier than sin and noted changes for the better tonally, the 'picture' illustrates the opposite.

The biggest misconception about SLC's is that since they are near the bottom of the RAC hierarchy, that they are not good enough or that they are comparable to the prepackaged stuff out there at the same price range or in the same bracket in another companies lineup.

Truth is, if you 'LISTEN' to these speakers, rather than 'HEAR' them (big difference), you'll find them a great sounding speaker, for a great value.
If they are comparable to Sony or Lanzar, that speaks a world about Focal Utopias($1k+) which have been beaten by SLCs in international competition.

For someone who likes to play with high end gear, I sure as hell have no reservations of putting an SLC set in my other vehicle.

BTW I have not read that review- I cannot access it at my work-its blocked. However, i know what i like- so it wouldn't make much a difference to me anyhow. Take it with a grain of salt.

im not sure thats the same lanzar and sony crap they sell in the US... could be better quality overseas... or not... but looking at the prices.... just a thought

correct me if im wrong 6spdcoupe.

i still think rainbow are better, I mean think about when you spend 200+ on rainbow and 400+ on other speakers and get the same SQ or batter(rainbow).
i think its worth getting rainbows. I was goting to get Focal speakers, but im not going to spend 500+ on focal and get the same SQ with a 300+ rainbow speakers. thats just crazy.

Dont take it out of context. The point here is you dont have to spend a ton to get good sound. While everything in the RAC lineup gets better up the ladder, doesnt mean the SLC's cant deliver tonally and give you a platform to yield great Sq with a solid install and good tuning.

seriously i mean even a set of 4" Dreamline coaxes get loud enough to fill a cabin and keep up with an SQ oriented sub, and sound freakin great while doing it
