View Full Version : Oz Audio ME 180CS vs Rainbow CMX 265 Kicks

08-28-2007, 11:42 PM
i've narrowed down my choices to these...

Rainbow CMX 265 Kicks
-from 6spdcoupe


Oz Audio Matrix Elite 180CS $300 (price almost seems too good?)

anyway i've heard great things about both... but never heard either in person
a huge plus for 6spdcoupe is he's like the next town over from me plus i rather give the business to him than some online company. if the difference is hardly noticeable or if both will exceed my expectations, then the Rainbows will be my choice

i wont post anymore vs threads for awhile :smokin:

Out of those two I like the Rainbow, but I like metal tweeters. But that's a lot of money for a component set with only a steel basket, not cast aluminum.

- Maybe he can get other brands, perhaps even OZ... I'd ask him.

you should try to listen to the CDt ES Eurosport series, they have tons of midbass, very detailed mids and the silk tweeters are lovely. you can crank the volume full blast and they still stay smooth yet very detailed. they can be had for $300 as well.

Out of those two, I will pick the Rainbows

But those Oz's are look pretty dam good as well.

There are too many speakers to chose from!! hahaha

imo, cdt lack midbass. my hd's dont have no where near as much midbass as id like.

i wish i went with the rainbows of some type. prob germs. and i wish i went with 2 ways.

Rainbow's. IMHO.

I would pick the OZ 180CS if I could get them cheaper. The mid is pretty awsome and the tweeters are still sound good. However, I would pick the Rainbow tweeter over the OZ though. If they are close in price I would probably go with the Rainbow's.

The OZs are available to ya as well bud. Im both dealer and NY/NJ regional rep. ;)

Ill leave my thoughts of performance aside as they may appear biased. :)

6spdcoupe -You not biased you just tell it like it is.

We know that he wouldn't, but some people might think he's just trying to upsell someone to something that he makes more profit on.

yea i've made my decision im def gonna go through 6spdcoupe - and almost most def going with the rainbows - now im just debating if i should settle for the cmx kicks or move up on the rainbow line =)

i used to have memphis mclass speakers and they werent bad - and as long as either of them (and im sure both are) sound better i would be happy

I think that website has had those listed forever -- but has not actually had them in stock.

Don, do you carry the newer version of the ME's?

09-04-2007, 07:13 PM
I do

09-04-2007, 07:42 PM
get the kicks. they sound so good.

get the kicks. they sound so good.

I second the CMX Kicks.

I had the non-Kick CMX 265's, and I loved those...I can only imagine a little more bass response would be the cherry on top.
