You will undoubtedly receive numerous suggestions to get the Rainbow Germaniums. So might as well get that out of the way now.

I think either the germs and profi's both can deliver la musica latina the way its meant to be heard.

I was on cruchfield yesterday, and they have a price break on mb quart qsd 216's for like 500 bucks. That's what I payed for them on sale at tweeter, but they go for a lot more retail. Not really a 500$ speaker but if you want to spend that much you can go get them from there. :fro:

Precision Power 356CS or Cerwin Vega V-Max 65. Soft or metal tweeter, take your pick.

Focal 165KP's are right at 500 and will sound amazing.

Well my installer showed me a pair of AVI Direct XL components and said he would sell me those at 500
and i must say they sound ****** so now im rethinking and i think i may get the avi's

The AVI Direct XL shouldn't go for more than about $200-250 (internet pricing from a shop - vaderspeedandsound.com). But if they sound good to you, then go for it. That is the most important thing.

I'm still going to stick with my vote and say either the Polk or Rainbow sets. If you don't like them you won't have a hard time getting rid of them and making almost all your initial investment back.

Agreed, especially on the germs. Theres limited places to source them from so the commodity holds quite well. Heres a set that recently sold for $375 with cosmetic 'dimples in the cone' for $375, originally bought for $450 and in umm 1hr 14mins. :)

Germs FTW, and Sixspeedcoupe FTW= double WIN. Seriously I love my Germs I never get tired of hearing them at high volumes, I am a Rainbow Nuthugger

Rainbow FTW..

Also a little more mainstream that I like are the Kicker SS series, and the Diamond Audio Hex series, even though they are wayyy under your budget if you buy online
