I think I'm hooked on the hype for Rainbows. I have a 2000 f150 supercab with an Alpine 9847 with no amp. I have Memphis Mclass 5x7's and they are way too harsh. My ears are ringing after listening to them. I didn't notice it at first but after a few months it just sort sounds like fingernails on a chalk board. I have ordered Boston SL80's to replace them. I have previously had Bostons. Need opinions on The SLC238 (5x7 comp),SLC230 (5.25 comp)or the SL 5x7 (coaxial). I would actually prefer the coaxials for simplicity of install. I'm not a huge audio nut but I do ilke my music (mellow Chili Peppers to Hendrix to alt country) to have clean SQ. Eventually I want to get an amp but that is a ways down the road.
