Starting a new prodject for a customer and glassing some 4's in the a pillars and i have narrowed it down to the three following sets seeing they are all in the same price range.
Diamond Audio Hex S400S
Oz Audio Matrix Elite 100CS

Hertz Hi Energy
There all around 250 shipped.

I would go with the Oz Audio's personally.. I heard the 6.5 comp set on roughly 100 watts and well, lets just say that it will be the next comp set I buy.. great products ftw.

Would be open to suggestions in 250-300 range. seas, dls, focal, dyna, cdt, hertz, etc
i dont think you cuold go wrong with any of those
i always wanted a set of oz's but i went with the rainbow cmx kicks and im sure the slc's will be somewhat similar
for metal tweeters they're not harsh at all and the mids pound... but the mids actually have a little harshness in their upper midrange... if you have the tuning you can fix that and they sound great.

added hertz high energy to the list, wasnt able to add it to the poll tho
tuning and proper installation will make the biggest difference between those choices.

Agreed. I have loved all my rainbow drivers, just never used any the low line like the SLC's so i wasnt sure if the build quality was there. Never messed w/ any hertz or oz componets yet. I just threw the diamonds in there because i can get them cheap.
i got the cmx kicks and they're pretty much mid level for rainbow and they are very solid in my opinion - at first i wasnt very impressed with them (didnt think they sounded bad) but once i tuned them - i almost couldnt imagine a pair of speakers sounding that much better honestly
i heard their entry level speakers arent that great tho

I think im gonna go hertz or rainbow. Pretty much how i felt b4 i made the thread but just wanted some more input.
