I just picked up a set of what were thought to be rainbow SLC 265's. The only question I have is that the mid-woofer says SLC 165 on the back not SLC 265. Is the 165 used in the 265 combo? little confused/worried.

do yall think the SLC'c can handle ~150w of clean power. I have a nine.4 bridged, not the best amp for sound quality, but decent.

SLC165 is the driver. CAL2045 is the tweeter. As a set they make SLC265.

Out of curiosity where did you purchase them?

Just like everyone said, the 265 just means they are a package. 150watts on them will be fine. Just dial in your gain properly.

Well, I got them installed last night and they sound really different than my CDT CL-62's. The clarity of these speakers (minus the hissing I have) in incredible. I moved the tweets from firing off the windshield to firing accross the dash, mounted them on the A-piller. The mid-bass is decent, more than my CDT's, but I still need to do some tuning here and there. My front stage seemed to improve a little. There is more left-to-right and it has risen a good 8 inches to a foot. These speakers are more in-your-face than my previous CDT's, which were pretty laid back. So far I really like them, but only time will tell.

On a side note, is there a good way to tell my crossover is set to 80hz? I had my amp set at 80hz going by the marks on the dials, but it seemed to let alot of low notes reach the components, so I don't know if I trust it or not. Would a test tone work?

80hz is going to let some lows through depending upon the slope :)

I was utterly shocked with the performance of the bottom of the barrel rainbows myself . First listen I was hooked :)

here's a pic of my current setup, minus the rainbows. Its 4.5 cuft tuned to 32hz. still gotta make the other amp beauty plate this christmas break. It was designed to still allow access to the spare tire. The box is on hinges and lifts up and the amps are stationary.

Little off topic, i know.

thanks guys on the comments of my setup. Im thinking about selling the nine.4 and grabbing another nine.1 for those R's, and then gettin a "sq" amp and putting it in the spare tire area. Gotta get the funds first!

back on topic-----

I bypassed the processor and that did nothing, still the static/hiss sound. I'm going to try regrounding the HU, and possibly switch out the RCA's. It it stil happens, Ill throw in my old 9825 and see if it goes away then.
