...comparable to the boston pro60s...I heard some last night off a kicker zx550.2, and they got loudddddd and sounded really good. Its for my mini cooper, and I want it to look factory, so I'm going to remove the factory harmon kardon system, sell that on eGay, and get a HU that matches in my dash the best, a set of 6.5s up front (no rear fill) and I have the 12" xxx, so eventually ill have a box built for that.

But basically I want a set of components that have decent midbass, smooth sounding tweeters, and just get nasty loud. Something comparable to the pro60s I heard.

I'd rather not do DIY active components, but I might if someone could throw somehing together thatll sound good and get really loud. The stock tweets in my mini are 1" I believe, so I can't do any of those big vifa or dayton tweets, etc.

Ill take care of the amp for them after wards.

If you want loud, all you're really limited is physically by excursion and sensitivity/powerhandling. Anything that maximiizes both will get **** loud.

How much power do you have on tap? I think that will determine what may fit best.

i just picked up some pro60's for 215 shipped.

i was gonna get the Z6's at a local sound advice for 350 (missing some installation pieces) but they sold it...oh well the pro60's will be good enough :)

bamaboy, what amp do you have on your pro60's?

my 8002 does 200@4ohms and 400x2 @2ohms so im guessing 300-ish at the 3ohms

i crossed them over a little higher just to be on the safe side
