I've had the oppurtunity to listen to a lot of comp sets. I have been researching for the past 2-3 months. How did some of you get the rainbow "experience," besides purchase or just word of mouth?

I got some germs from Don aka 6speedcoupe on the blind. I can tell you that they have never disappointed me. I have been using them for about 1 year now, and they still sound just the same as when I got them. I used to have Infinity kappas, that I got from a local shop I payed like 400 bucks for. Let me tell you these are like Night and Day difference. The cal 25 tweeter sounds so smooth, and not harsh in the least. I mostly listen to bands like Tool, Deftones, NIN, APC. and the sound is amazing. hope this helps, and I know that all sound is only as good as the individuals ear.

You couldn't have said "truer" words, cause I actually kinda like my tweets mildy harsh. That's just my preference. I listen to mostly r&B, hip hop, and rap.

i bought the SLC 265 Kick w/ only hearsay from other owners from Aaron (premieraudio).

Needless to say they kick ***. They are perfect speakers for R&B...handle the lows great.

Hearing this makes me very happy as those bands you listed are exactly what I would have listed for myself. I plan on getting a pair of SLC 265 Kicks.

the cmx's that i have has the cal 25 titan tweeter and they get pretty darn loud.but i can honestly say that i haven't heard anyone say anything bad about any of the rainbow speaker lines.

i went to a local shop here in LA and heardd the germs. they were in a costumer car


i was listening to a band called Rammstein.
i loved the way they sounded, it was loud and at the same time not harsh.
the mids were clear, had good bass to it. the vocals were clear, loud.
overall it was very nice. it can get nice and loud but unlike other sets it does not start hurting your ears after an hour or so.

I have some SLC kicks on order from Don. I am putting them in a Friends Bronco along with a Fi audio Q15. Bronco has a lot of airspace in it, a lot more then my WRX. He listens to Rap and hip-hop, so it will be nice to see how they sound in his vehicle.
