well i had my sights set on a pair of sscs6's from ROE, but now they're going out of business, i dont know which set of comps would be best suited for me in the $160-180 price range. i will amplify according to the speaker specs. these are going in a 1994 honda accord ex and i listen to rap. i have been doing some research and i have compiled this list of candidates. please give me some input on which would be best suited out of this list or if there are any others that i did not mention. i know i'm going to get a lot of people recommending rainbow.... i would love to get a pair of rainbow comps, but i just don't have $230+ dollars right now. anyway, here's the list so far.

Out of that list, the MOMO's.

But I'll recommend you save up for another couple weeks or so and get some Rainbow SLC265's.

Out of the options you listed, I would probably head in the direction of the DLS or the Bostons.

Or these;

Actually (and I own and like those comps) I think they would not be the best choice for this guy who says he listens to a lot of rap.

I own the Ef-61 CF and i think they sound actually pretty **** good for rap. With artists who use multiple bass lines, like TI, they really sound gooooood. (Don't distort at high volumes at all) However they really really shine with more "musical" types of music such as with acoustical instruments. Hotel California live has never sounded this good.

I would say go with the pair i have in my sig, you wont be disappointed, run a good 150 watts and ull be set. Bought mine from DjDillioDon from this forum.


Cant speak for the FG's though.
