So I was at my friends shop litening to his truck when he showed me these new speakers he put in. They were a set of componets by a company called Hertz Audio, a sister company of Audison. I have to say, I'm VERY impressed with both the Mille(top end) and Energy(lower line) set of componets they make. Long story short I'm waiting on my order to ship from Italy of Hertz High Energy 6.5" comps, High Energy 6.5" coaxials, and Mille 12" along with my Audison lrx 5.600 amp.

Hertz is nice stuff. Some nice higher efficiency offering in the High Energy line. The Milles are indeed the in the very fine esoteric market with the Focal Be, Rainbow Platinum, Brax Matrix and the such. I have a feeling you'll be seeing alot more of Hertz as new year comes and beyond. My good friend is a distributor for Hertz in India, and raves about the Mille comps and subwoofer.

yeah that's what my friend was saying. the mille's are gorgeous looking/sounding and i'm sure i'll love the 12" off that 5th channel on the audison. sadly i have to keep a stock deck for now:(. stupid 06' mazda 6 doesn't have a dash kit yet.

Hertz is a new brand at one of my local shops, i have listened to some of it and it's real nice! very efficient and the sound quality is awesome. i listened to the high energy and the space line. i really like the high energy line.

the difference in the high energy vs. the melle is like polk audio coax compared to F1 comps lol.

for anyone interested, my friend is doing his buy in for Hertz so if interested go to www.hertzaudiovideo.com and pm me if interested in any of it. I can give you full info from the shop and the owners name and # if really interested. Basically you'd be buying the initial gear buy in so price would be a good one obviously;).

yes you sir are teh cheater:D. i was guessing off what i thought he said. going off what i've heard IMO they're worth the price but that's me. 99% of people wouldn't pay that much for the high energy but i'd put em' up with rainbow in the comparable price range.

Not all the time. Money talks and if you buy enough any manufacture will come down on the price by a good amount.

On a side note those xovers on the hertz set from the pics made me drool!!! I may have to pick up a set to try these out.

bumpin_blazer
11-26-2006, 05:38 PM
that price is i over 150 less than my cost and as far as i know, the closest hertz dealer is 600 miles away. that price is cheap though i might email them see if i can buy a few dozen;).

haven't installed em' yet as were trying to find the proper vehicle to use them in a sponsorship if i decide not to use them. i might end up calling my rep and asking if i can trade em' out for high energy 6.5" comps and coaxials and a mille 12" and pay the difference.

How come the crossover only says Bi-amp? It can't be ran passive?

bumpin_blazer

Bi-amp is still using a passive network. Although you dont 'need' to utilize that option.

Ray assured me i wouldn't be disappointed. I explained how i hate bright tweeters, he wouldn't sell me anything lower than that line knowing I hate bright tweeters.
