Very awesome! I am so jealous... I want a set of Germaniums sooo bad, but can't afford it. :crap:

Hey 6spd or Premier! Care to sell me a new set for $200 or less? My PM box is waiting for your responses... lol :crazy:

Very nice indeed. Mine should be in next week along with a Vanadium 12" sub, and a DLS A7 amp.

did some research and heard that the rainbow tweeters lot of times give distorted sounds. what is the reason behind it?

Where did you hear this from, and what do you mean by distorted sounds?

Great reviews in that link. No mention of Rainbow tweeter distortion that I could find.

Where does it state in that thread in the 1st post that rainbow tweets distort? I know the answer, but reading is fundamental...not to mention catching onto context clues, etc. based upon the whole paragraph in that thread.

The first post sez:



Got the SLC 265's. They get so friggin loud, but don't distort at all!

With my CDT EF's in my old car, they got loud too but the tweeter would distort with them, which kind of ******.

Im scared because i don't know how loud i can play these things without damaging them though, because they never distort, and everytime i turn the volume up, they sound louder and better. :) Tons of midbass too.

No need to apologize...the sentence can be tricky if a newb reads it. ;) Get Rainbows...you will be a happy camper.

I've got an 07 TL-S that I am putting Rainbow Germs in! I just received the Germs and a Vanadium sub yesterday. I will be bi-amping the Germs with a DLS A7 amp.

I'm REALLY looking forward to getting everything installed and tuned in. If the Rainbows sound half as good as they look, then I'm in for a real listening experience. Unfortunately the A7 won't be in until probably late next week though, so in the meantime I just have to drool on the Rainbows and imagine that sound is coming out of them. Oh well, I guess it gives me more time to plan out the install.
