Hey,

I'm still debating what speakers to get, I'm considering the JBL GTI C608GTi, they loook really good. I really don't have a price limit. I'm going to set up a nice amp, to them as well. I'm also considering Rainbow SLC's. Any comments? Thanks guys.

The jbls have good midbass, but they lack midrange. I never cared for the set personally. Very muddy sounding imo. If you dont have a price limit, ide look at some better sets in general.

Thanks for the input, prefably under $300 but its not really an issue. What would you recommend instead, any specific speakers. Also people recommend disconnecting my back speakers.

:rolleyes:
Um if you read the thread you would see that we are talking about the gti components, not subs!! The gti comps are just average. The subs are great, I wont argue with you on that.

What kind of music do you listen to? Are you looking for strong midbass, or what?

Neither are available on ebay. If you want the xtecs, call exile. If you want the pgs I may be able to help with that.

i have the exact componets that u are talking about and they are pretty good components for the price.... if u are looking for midbass they defenitely have that but as for the tweets they are a little bit harsh IMO

it just depends on what u think sounds good... are u looking for something loud to impress your friends... somthing that has a lot of quality to it or something that has great midbass.. once u figure out that along with your price range and what you want to spend then you will be able to narrow down your choices

I want the overall package, something loud, with good sound quality, and midbass.

could you be a bit more specific? there are many speaker that will fit those descriptions, go a bit more in detail about the "type" of sound that you want. do you want smooth highs, deep midbass, midrange detail, etc. also could you define what you mean by loud? because almost any decent speakers will be plenty loud for most people without hearing damage ;)

I want speakers with the clearest sound, that go as loud as possible.

as loud as possible.... I would say boston acoustics pro60, they have great clarity and get really loud....

The JBL GTI comps sound great, they can take so much rms power with no problems. I have been looking for new comps as well and that set was one i was looking at as well

Yes they look really goood accually I was really considering the JBL GTI but everyone is saying that the raindow SLC's are better I can't seem to understand why, but i totally trust kicker so I'm taking his word for it.

Their is no best. Get that out of your head. The jbl comps honestly sound horrible midrange wise compared to other simi, to high end lines of comparable price.
