After research I can't decide which 6.5 comp set to get. I like rock and hip hop? Looking to spend less than 200.00 and less than 150.00 would be great. I have 100 rms to put on em'.

720PRS if you can swing $250ish. If not, then RSd.

Those are 50w RMS, and he has 100w RMS. That's not really safe, in my opinion, unless you are very experienced with gain setting.

Regardless, I wouldn't even touch the Phoenix Golds. (At least their RSD series.) CDTs are really nice in my opinion, I'd do something like their EF-61FG's (I think they're like, two bills right now) or CL-61A's. Friend of mine actually has the CL-61A's with TW-25 tweeters, they sound really smooth, and I think they're in your budget.

When you hear distortion it's too loud. You dont have to be very experienced. They can take more than 50w.

And your reasoning would be?

I have installed a few PG sets for my friends, and I wasn't really impressed with them at all. They were... mediocre, at best. Nothing amazing, in my opinion.

Which PG sets, specifically and how where they installed and configured (deadening, kind of power, etc)?

Ok, I'll spend around 200.00 and I think I am sold on the Pioneer 720prs..

That must be install dependant. Me and my buddy installed a set in his car and although the tweet was medicore in my opinion the midbass/mid range was nothing short of spectacular. Beats the mid bass in any out of the box set I've ever heard including the SSCS6, Boston Z6, most of the mid-lowe line CDT lines, etc.

720prs is an alright set, and the ef-61 set ok too, but getting into the new 07 CDT setups like the HD M6, HD M6+, ES-06, ES-06+ are just awesome.

Yep. But goes way beyond the $200 limit the OP stated.

Yeah.. Helps to be sponsored by them :D but there is always the classifieds. I've seen a set similar to mine there except for i560 crossovers that were priced pretty good.

If you get the cdt's,just be sure to uppgrade our xover. The Satnet 400 or whatever comes with it, the tweets cuts off at high volumes or when pushed hard. Very fustrating. Ive seen several people have this experience. Other than that I liked them.

That is your tweeter protection cutting in.

If you can swing the Pioneers, go for it. Otherwise I'd go with the RSds. I've heard a lot more lack-luster review on the lower-line CDTs than I have on the RSds. The CDT EF-6FGs are supposed to be pretty decent though.

Just go active. Including the amp and active crossover, I've got about $500 in my active front stage. Keep an eye out for good deals and you can build something very nice on a fairly tight budget.

because?

IMO the FG mids have a more detailed and natural sound.
