Hey guys, With the car audio world changing and companies changing for the good or bad, I would like your input.

I was huge into car audio in the late 90's.

Now I was looking into the following components:

Powerbass 3xl-6c = $99
Unique, seems usa designed. up and coming brand?
How is their amps, ASA, XA?

Cadance CWM6 = $80
Looks sweet, good price.
How is their TXA amps?

Excelon KFC-X1710P = $130
not sure on quality anymore?
How is their new excelon amps?

PG RSd 65cs = $80
Seem to get good reviews by those who own them.

My factory, 20 yr old speakers have done well for me for about 1yr of owning the 300ZX.


Any suggestions, being a hatch car I will only be using the front. Later on I will be adding a 10" sub for some bump hidden where the spare was.

all in all a small system, just so I can hear my tunes.

Interesting, I haven't thought about the Orion brand since they had the nice red HCCA amps. **** those were nice.

Pioneer REVs are another good choice

and for like 180ish you can grab some MB Quart PCE-216s----but these may be a few bucks over your budget

PPI 356cs or Cerwin Vega V-Max 65

Orion HCCA 6.2 if the above are more than you want to spend.

according to people's experiences, seems like the RSd's would be the best choice for the money.

I like my Cadence CWM6's. Very clear highs, not harsh. Good midbass. Don't be afraid to give them 150wrms.

^ya definitely.

they were retailin for 85$ and just noticed they dropped the price to $10 now on their site. Theyre good quality from what I read, I have both those and the RSD's next to eachother at the moment, installing tomorow finally (Rsd's)

what made you switch?

are you going to do a ide by side comparison?

reason i was thinking Cadence was the warranty.

I probably won't be doin comparisons of the two since im about to sell them soon.
What made me switch was that the Depth of the Cadence CWM6's, they are 3" and I'm new to car audio and trying to have installation as easy as possible. I still might have troubles since RSD's are abit less than 3 inches but from the reviews and opinions I've seen about 'em, that also had to do with me switching;)
