im trying to find out which comp set i should upgrade to. theres not very many good shops out here with a demo wall set up. and of the ones that do only have kicker and hifonics and some knock off brands. im thinking of some of these comps:


JL AUDIO VR650-CSi
MB Quart RVF216
MB QUART PCE-216
RE AUDIO RE6.5COMP
Diamond Audio Hex S600
Boston Acoustics SL60
POLK MOMO MMC6500

ive been reading reviews on each one of those and i still cant make up my mind.

currently i have a Pioneer 880PRS HU. im going to buy the amp based on what i finally decide on.
please help. thanks in advance

also please dont post just a model, i see alot of that going around. as i dont have the option to listen, could you please post why that model and why not the others?

Would you be able to save up the difference (http://www.onlinecarstereo.com/CarAudio/ProductDetail.aspx?ProductID=17068) for just a little longer or is $200 your absolute max?

its not that i dont have the money, i just cant justify spending more than $200 on a set of component speakers.

does anyone have any experience with the pce-216s? the tweets are titanium and i have heard that these can get harsh at high levels. i have aluminum ones now and i cant stand listening to them loud. im looking at silk for the tweeter but if the mb quarts arent harsh then ill reconsider those.

Another option might be the Polk MOMO MMC6500's. The tweeters are silky smooth, imo.

The MOMOs should have a nice smooth tweet and are a good comp set at a good price

and those Pioneer's have a silk tweet as well, and they sound really nice, I was pretty impressed when I first heard them


If you can listen to some PCEs, I would, personally I dont find their tweeters to be harsh, the PCEs are a really really nice comp set, and and that price for less than 200, when they retail for like 400 is a hell of a deal

thats the problem i cant listen to any of these because theres no audio stores here that carry any of these speakers.

They should have the Momos on display. I heard them, but they are kinda out of my range at the moment.

You might find the Quart tweeter a little harsh, but the set sounds night and day better overall than the Polk momo, I heard them side by side... the Polks' sound dead in comparison.

I would get the Precision Power 356cs and call it a day... they will compete with or beat the Pioneer.

hmm thats the first time that those speakers have come up. ill have to do a little research on those ones. it does have a silk tweeter which i do like.

a demo wall wouldn't help you out anyways because component speakers sound so much differnt in a demo wall compared to a car... i would never make a judgement off a demo wall... good luck...
