Well i have recently sold off everything out of my daily driver to fund a new build in a different car. I also am working on a budget install in my daily driver to replace everything that has been removed and sold off. Im looking for a pair of clean sounding 6.5" componets w/ some nice out put for under 200 bucks shipped. Power will be coming from a 100.2 passive until the 50.4 comes out then they will be active.

Thanks

Corey

Crazy as this may sound, I've been hearing some good things about the Lanzar opti6.1c's, like 139 for the set....

Not gona lie, but they look pretty solid! And if im not mistaken the Opti line is Lanzar's top line, they cant be that bad...

who wants to test them out ;)

My short list.

PG Rsd, MBQ are always on the list.IMO The PPI 365cs are very good and the Lanzar have me wondering how good they are. That is the second review I have seen raving about them. Someone got them for $95.00 but cannot remember the place.

Do we have something to match or beat the PG Rsd for bang for the buck now?

In order to give a review worth using you have to say what your experience is...
That guy might be using his first comp set for all I know - or his first speaker up grade from stock.....

On this messageboard the PG's get the boner of the month for budget set ups
and thats what I would try if they fit into your power needs....Worst comes to worse you can sell em off if you dont like it but better hurry theres a new boner of the month coming soon,there always is

They are sold out right now, but I've heard a lot of good things about this component set ($166).

i'd look into the TMA components. MSRP is under $200 from an authorized JL dealer, however you can find them online for considerably less... under 100 bucks. for a budget speaker, they actually do very, very well. tons of midbass, will get wicked f'n loud, and sound really good regardless of music genre. if you listen to a lot of metal/hard rock, the tweeter can be a bit fatiguing on the reference setting in the passive crossovers, but i'd imagint attenuate it a bit and it'd mellow right out. or go active with it (as you plan to do, and as i was doing with them) and they get real smooth. entry level line for JL they might be, entry level sound they are not. i did end up switching back to my boston pro 6.53's because i do like them better, but who wouldn't :P i did hear a lot of good things about them and had to try them out for myself, just to see what the hype was about... and was pleasantly suprised.
