How much are you willing to spend, total?

09-04-2006, 12:25 AM
I DO NOT have a limit on Spending.. figure can save a lot buying them brand new on eBay anyway.. But I just want the best sounding no matter if they are cheap or high in price.... :naughty:

Hmm then..

Rainbow Plats? References?
Dyn 360 ?
Morel Elates? Supremos?
Brax Matrix?
Genesis Absolutes?

Just a few to think about depending on your tastes...they start at about $1200 up to the $9,900 region (not that it matters).

A bit more than that, but yea. ;)

09-04-2006, 12:49 AM
The Germaniums look awesome for the price!

09-04-2006, 12:50 AM
No, just read some reviews on them....

09-04-2006, 12:54 AM
Tell us how much do u want to spend, because if you don't care about the price, the Rainbow Reference speakers are the best looking speakers I've ever seen and they should sound "out of this world".

Hey 6spdcoupe, did you find some SQ amps according to my budget?

09-04-2006, 12:57 AM
Arlight, $200-$500... what the hell are the rainbows??

09-04-2006, 12:59 AM
Good sugguestions! Out of the speakers you have listed, there is no way you can go wrong with Polk Audio. They are just plain sweet. Look at those momos. Very nice. I have the momo's and I very happy with them The db series are very nice too. Most people on here have very good things to say about them as well.

09-04-2006, 01:13 AM
Yeah..I agree. Reviews on Crutchfield.com said nothing but great things about POLK... and they seem to be priced fairly well too...

Rainbow is a german brand that makes one of the best speakers for car audio. Other top brands are DLS, CDT, Morel, Lotus, etc. Check out the Rainbow site http://car.rainbow-audio.de/home/home.php?lan=2

out of those you listed i would choose Polk Audio MMC6500, they sound and look pretty **** good. first time i heard it was at frys.

09-04-2006, 04:05 PM
i have used mbquart, polk, infinity and many others and the best i have used so far as quality is the Cdt audio. The tweeters never get too harsh or carkly even when i blast my system full potential. My brother was using Hex and he even switched over to Cdt after hearing mine. i have the entry level ones and my bother has the upgraded version below and they cost less then 200 bucks shipped :yumyum:


09-04-2006, 04:32 PM
I would go with Rainbow Germaniums.

The short list originally listed don't compare IMO.

09-05-2006, 12:08 AM
i was looking into buying some more speakers for my car, and my list was similar to the original list. i have the infinity reference componets 6 1/2 in front and 5 1/4 in rear.

im leading towards the Polk db6500 up front right now. should i pair them with the polk db5250 in the rear?

oh yea i drive a 95 honda civic coupe and i dont wanna spend that much neither. my spending limit would be like 200 per set of speakers

would that be good, or are there any other suggestions, thats in my price range?

i saw some one talk about the CDT'S, are they just as good as the polks?

While there is nothing wrong with posting this type of inquiry thread, I suggest that you also take advantage of the search function. Just do several searches, typing in the names of the products you are considering. That way you get a broader range of opinions.

For example, I think that you will find that the Rainbows are very popular -- very little to no negative opinions. The CDT's you will find more mixed results.

09-06-2006, 03:17 PM
i have another quik question.

if i decide to get the polk db6500 up front and a pair of polk db525 in the rear, should i hook up an amp to all 4 speakers, jus the componets, or no amp at all?


09-06-2006, 05:17 PM
In my personal taste, CDT makes better speakers than Polk, if you go to other forums CDT is very popular and you'll find very little to no negative opinions. In this forum you'll find that Rainbow is the most popular brand. In another forum you'll find that XXXXX makes the best speakers and so on.

Rainbow, CDT, Morel, Seas, Scanspeak, Dynaudio.........they're all great brands, you can't go wrong with them.

Ok, so between the Polk DB6500 and Alpine SPR-17LS components, which is a better buy?? I will be using an Alpine 75w RMS x 4 amp to power them.
