I purchased the SX50 and the 51/4 ******. The tweeters where just ok but expected more. I sold them and bought the SX60 was still very disappointed. The midbass was better but the tweeter still sub par IMHO. I would look into something else unless you are getting a smoking deal. I will never buy that line again. Other you might also look at unless you are dead set on the SX stuff is POLK MMC6500, Pioneer 720PRS, Diamonds and cruthcfield has the MB Quart RUA216 149.99 w/free shipping. I think CDT might have some stuff in the same price range also. I only base the SX series on my personnal opinion of them I was less than happy for the price and I got them on sale for 179.99 new when I got them. I have not heard the MB Quart RUA216 though they might not be any better.

MIDBASS-less than impresive
Tweeters-some of the worst I have ever used

I was not happy with the SX line for the price range. Not all Boston stuff. The midbass/tweeter just did not compare to some Diamond and JL stuff I used in the same price range. If you could find a good deal on Boston PRO they are good but a big step in price from the SX line.IMHO

IMO there are better speakers out there in the SX price range. I have never owned the S line so cannot say good or bad.

Please remeber this is only my opinion and I will admit I am kinda picky about SQ.
