Hey all--
I'm looking for a set of components. What I have found so far is the Raindbow CMX 265 Kick. I looked at the website that is on the opening page before you come into the forums, and I emailed them last nite. What I told them is that I listen a lot of Christian rock and rap, but I also enjoy others like The Carpenters, Beach Boys, other contemporary and also I love bass tracks. I want a set that would fill in the mid-bass and that also I can kill the sub or turn it down when I want to listen to something soft. I want them to sound warm and vibrant, and full of detail. They said that what I had picked out would be a good choice. What I would like to know from ya'll, are they a good choice?? I have heard people on here say nothing but good things, but I also have never heard them by my own ear. If you know of anything better, please do tell. I wasnt wanting to spend more then $400 on these.

Nice choice of comps. For SQ, loudness, tight midbass punch, top end shimmer and extension....Great tweets off axis as well.

Guess I'll chime in. I listen to some of the same music, as well as other stuff, but I have the 265 CMXs (non-kicks_ and they are great. Best sounding speakers I've ever owned and for the price, I don't see how you could get better sound.

I would imagine the kicks would give you a bit more midbass and that would just make it that much better.

Not more than $400 on the CMX 265 Kicks... hehe. If you haven't already, you really need to PM 3.5Max6spd, 6spdcoupe, and PremierAudio for what they charge. :naughty:

If they were both crossed over at 80hz would you be able to tell the difference between the kicks and the regular version?

Its called christian rap. Look up Lil iROCC and The Ambassador, Toby Mac, KJ-52...there are many others as well. That is what I listen to. I have a very ecletic collection that I listen to. My Taste varies from Beethover and Chopin to the Beach Boys and The Carpenters, Louis Armstrong to Aretha Franklin and so on and those bass tracks...so I guess Techno music as well. I enjoy all types of music and I want to enjoy it as much as I can.

I know that...but WTF does 50% more mean? How did they measure it?

Thats like saying "Our beer tastes 50% better than other beers" :eyebrow:

Its designed to give 2-3db more robust output in the 80-220hz region in ANY sized door it will configure a QTC of 0.7(ideal IB alignment) in whatever volume.
Its a purpose driver.

I'm sure anyone can measure it with an RTA, some people have to cut their output some or they create resonance. They pound.
