I decided to use the door adapters on the Cavalier and find a spot to mount tweets. Since it is my Daughter's budget it has to stay in the $150-$200 range and Silk tweets are preferred.... or not harsh. Thanks a million! :)

In that post are you talking about the Crystals? Where do you get them?

I searched the classifieds over here thinking I could pick up a used set but only found a set of RE's. They any good?

They are talking about the rainbows in that post, you can get them from 6speed
Ive never heard them but i've been told that they rock out
If you look really hard you can find a set of Focal 165V1's like mine for under 200;)

I have a DIY set you can pick up.

6.5" Ascendant Audio Poly Mids
Diamond Audio silk dome tweets (out of the hex comp set)
Adjustable crossovers from Crossfire
and even some 5x7" to 6.5" adapters.

$150+ shipping.




Shameless plug. Perhaps the wrong time to post that too.

Mods, delete if necessary.

Crystal SSC is very popular among other forum members. I suggest you read some threads and hear them first hand before making you final decision.

I picked up a set of JL XR650's for 220.00 on ebay brand new and I must say they rape the old PG Xenon comps I had and the Typ R comps I heard. The PG's cant even touch them in terms of clarity and mid range.

Focal 165v1's off of e-bay. Focal is known for their high - end component sets. Alpine, kicker, infinity, polk, ect. just can't match Focal, Eclipse, SEAS, component sets.

Best bet is to take your daughter to a sound shop who has these manufactures displayed and bring a demo disc. Listen to everything you can and write the model numbers down go on e-bay buy from a respected unauthorized dealer and bam, you got the best brand for the best price.

If your gonna do this than make sure you have some decentcy and dont waste any sales guys times. They arent there to cater to bottom feeders just looking to buy them from the net.

Please most of the sales guys around here waste MY time with their lack of knowledge.

For a general sq setup, how do you guys think the Focal 165A components up front and the 165v1 coaxials out back. Would they complement each other well? You can find em for pretty cheap on woofersetc.

because they are tired of dealing with bottom feeders that waste their time and think they are know it alls because someone told them they were good on a forum.
