I am still unsure what comps to get. I don't want to make the wrong investment, I think a front stage will be the most important thing to me because i love my SQ and detail. Also I love PUNCHY speakers. So far here are the options I've come up with:
1) Image Dynamics xs65
2) Rainbow CMX 265 Kicks
3) Re xxx6.5" (they might not fit - leave them out of the debate for now)

Any other sets that top these? I really don't know which set to get. Which set is the BEST for the $300ish price range? I want the best comps possible

As much as I love the CMX's, I'd have to say go with the xs65's. From what I've been reading, they're supposed to be fantastic. You can't go wrong with the CMX Kicks, either, though.

for $300 you can get a $600 set if you dont mind lightly used, theres a lot of peeps out here that change equipment regularly.......and when its good equipment they take care of it, i never buy new/retail.

Yup I definitely don't mind something used, I'm expecting to buy something very lightly used or off ebay so anything goes, just name the best comps there are :)

I have a set of Adire Koda in my car. I like them even tho i know i lack midbass. Not because the Kodas lack them, but its my installation. I have them in stock location in a 325ci which is on the door panel itself instead of the door metal the panel snaps onto. And yes, i know about the custom baffle..

Anyways................. aside from that problem

I am DYING to hear the new XS65 ID comps. Theres probably two reviews I have found and they weren't real world reviews which doesnt help.

Might want to see what kind of a price you could get on Critical Mass comps before you buy.

The Critical Mass will handle more power, and I think the tweeter is better:

But if you like soft domes and want to save some money, I'd go with PPI 356cs, they are pretty close to the ID XS65. ID's handle a hair more power than the PPI set.

Go with Boston pro60s or Pioneer PRS and save yourself some money while still getting good sound quality. But out of those three you listed I would go for the ID XS65....very **** speakers. ID equipment is very high quality and used in many SQ competitions. I also been to their factory twice and they are very helpful.

The Rainbow or ID will both serve you well. You need to listen to both sets if possible then make a decision. We all like different things and its just an opinion of what we like. If you want to spend less and still get a good set check out the PPI. Do not overlook the PRS set they sound very good. Also the PG Ti Elite that are still on sale are a good set also.
