If theyre 3+ years old the HEXs are pretty decent, anything newer...Ill pass.

I have owned them for a while I would pass on the HEX's.......
They really lack midbass and the tweeter is just so-so -
They were great years ago when LPG made the components but now
its made in China and has since lost its flair........
I would definatly check out Crystal Mobile Sounds SSCS6 comps
they are half the price of the HEX's and are amazing sounding.

Why not the Germs? If not the Germs, how about SLC's? You can probably find Boston Pro's for around the same price as Hex's too.

the HEX's are ok, but their are better. I like them over some of the boston stuff...but then, i love the Z6's. If you could afford them (ebay i think their like 550) they are absolutely the bomb!

I was going to buy the Diamond Audio Hex S600s's, when i did not know anything about car audio and i was a noob, after doing research, and reading threads on this forum and some other forum. I found out that I can spand alot less and get more than what Diamond Audio has to offer. I can pay $200+ for a pair of SLC, and get better SQ than the speakers that cost more.

yea the hex's are still one of the best, just make sure ur install is superb.
people always knock on these speakers as having no midbass, *** that use a sub for bass. well anways good, clean, clear is what i think about these. sure its not the same as the eton/lpg days, but fukit theres still better out there and hell of lot worse. why dont u try listening to them first.

well, midbass is a bit different from the bass frequency a subwoofer can play at. plus, if youre gonna spend 300 dollars on a set, make it worth it. the hex's price is too steep for its performance.

I had the hex's.They are okay.I wouldn't purchase them again.Unless I found a good deal on some used ones and was doing an entry type set up for someone.They are pretty much as described clear to a certain level,and lack mid bass.

I am currently using the Hex's in my car and I really like them. Alot of time was spent on the install and they sound very good. The midbass is not lacking for me. I would say try to to find somewhere to listen to them. They get extremely loud and stay clear while doing so. I am sure there is better out there but I am very happy for now.

No boy here;), Im also a DA dealer...since they dropped the Esoteric design their amps have drastically fallin. I sell a fair amount of D3 series, but cost to performance factor takes it.

I have/had (when I get MD42) the D3 400.4 no problems here. I was thinking of upgrading with the 3 way version of this set until this thread. Now I gotta find what is the upgrade from the SLC 3-way version. BTW 3way in **** install > 2 way in decent install.

The Esoterics fall in accordance with the D7s. Hence E7401 = D7401,E7056=D7056. This last until about mid '04ish.

The D5s were solid performers with the exception of the first batch back in '02-'03 while they worked fine, they had thermal issues. Specifically the D51200.1

The D6s stepped up a bit from the D5s offering a larger lineup and smaller footprint.

I had two D5's , a 300.2 and a 600.2 with very low serials and had to send both to get fixed for overheating. Glad to hear it wasn't me.
