help me out guys. i'm thinking about buying some new comps,but i dont know which to go wit. i seach the forum about rainbows and cdts;rainbow mids were too warm and the cdt tweets were too laid back. me personaly like that tick, highs or what ever yall call it. If i go with the cdt, what model do u guys recommend. The same wit the rainbows. I also been looking into the bostonpro60. ihad a pair of rallys back in the day and they soundedgood. I will be feeding any of the speaker u guys recommend off of a jl4300amp. 150x2 brigde.

Powerline CMX's arent warm at all. Hard dome tweet, metal cone mid. Very dynamic set.

IF you like a really sharp and brite tweeter, look into comps with alum or Ti tweets. Here is a Cdt comp with Ti tweetz that should sound awesome. I am using the same set but just with silk tweeters.

can you do an active set up? because that way you can fine tune the sound to fit exactly what you want. also it would probably be cheaper than most of the choices listed so far...

to go active i will have to use all of my channels on my 4 channel amp right.hmm, the only problem is i thinking about selling my subs and i want to keep all four speakers.

no, you can run the tweeters off of the headunit, tweets can become painfully loud with 5 watts

that's fine, all it takes is patience and some time. if you're like me and you like tweaking with things, it might actually be fun... All i know is that i'm never going back to using passive. that moment when you get everything right and you get the feeling that the speakers were specially made just for your car, is so satisfying.

anyways, i just happened to get into the world of active setups when i was too cheap to buy a new xover for my busted components:D, turns out it was the best choice i'd made in terms of car audio...
