Tons and tons. If you search around here, and some online stores you will find quite a few. That topic is pretty broad.

i am using the entry level Cdt Cl comps and cant rave enough about the way they make the music sound and my comps were only like 150 bucks so i can just imagine how these hi end ES Cdt's will sound.

the way audiobahnuser explained it to me, is its like *****. at first the taste of **** turns you off, but once you keep on doing it the **** taste dissapears and you just can't get enough. I personally will stick with my dls's and skip the whole ordeal.:cool:

high end as in............. 5,000 high end or as in under 700

i guessing under 700 so here couple high end brands that all their stuff is great
Rainbow from slc and up rock
Seas - nothing else to know other than they rock
Focal - any of their Kp serious stuff rocks as long as you have twice as much recommended power for em. They are power *****s.
Boston Acoustics - Pros or Z6's sound good what i hear
DLS but i dont no anything about DLS or where to get em.

That should start you out.

he specified 500 bucks or less

and good speakers < good install

if you've got 500 to spend, i'd throw 300 at the drivers, and save a few hundred for dampening/fiberglass/plexi/mdf, and follow the door speaker install sticky, and you'll come out better than a 500 dollar set, and no money to install them

For 500, Rainbows or Seas, definitely.

If you need to improve your install quality, I'd probably stick with spending the majority of the money on that instead...

Rainbow Germs sound nice for your price range, also look into focal K2p's or any KP series

I have a set of Focal K2P 6.5 components..they are awesome once they are broken in. Also, I would start with the tweeter attenuated at least a few db if you get them, there is an adjustment for this in the crossover.
I have them powered with 70 watts RMS @4 OHMS per channel (AUDISON) and they sound right on!

ignore everything else you've been told and listen to this advice.

not to be a thread jacker but i bought some rockford fosgates P162S.
i was wondering if they were worth the 220$... i liked the sound off of the sound board but it was off of radio power but i was told they would do much more amped.

I have an amp in mind - its a ppi 2200m from the early 90's. I will check out the door install sticky (tonight on company time). Im on the verge of buying the mb quart qsd 216's on ebay. Think that would pair up well with the ppi amp?
