Unless someone can come up with a better comp set, I'm going with the Rainbow SLC's...

Anyone? :(

What happened with the RSDs that you were installing? Can't you get a replacement for the bad X-over?

It's no secret Zapco has some **** nice speakers out there.

I've heard the older versions that are above those (the blue cone 3-way set) and the Competition series...really nice.

I'm going to look into the Zapco components as well. I've been reading alot about components but have no clue what to get other than I know I want a silk tweeter.

I asked this question like 2 weeks ago and didn't get much help I ended up ordering a set of
CDT EF-61CFi/25 They include the upgraded tweeter and new crossover and I got them for under 250. They should be here early next week im pretty excited about them. So they could be an option to.

I was reading about those too. How about a good report when you get them?
I've been looking at ...

PG RSD's
CDT EF-61CFi/25's
Zapco i-6.2's
JL VR650-CSi's (only one's i've heard in person)

I had MB Quarts and didn't care much for them

I will do a review when I get them installed which probably wont be till late next week if even that early because I am redoing my entire car pretty much and I need to wait for deadning and stuff to come in. But I will get a review up as soon as i can.

Pioneer Premier TS-C720PRS

I have these and they can be found for the 250$ shipped elsewhere. I really can't see them beat in SQ for the price. If you are looking for in your face type of sound or SPL don't buy them.

Yep, Boston Pro60's if you're looking for really LOUD and clear....if you're looking for decent SQ, but not so loud(but with more midbass), I'd go with the PRS 720's.

Because I prefer Silk tweeters.

Man, if you prefer silk tweets, I'd PM either Don, Manny, or Aaron on this board(Rainbow Dealers), and ask them if they could hook you up with a new set of the newly released Rainbow SLC comps....I believe they can be had for right around $250 shipped. They look awesome.

Nope, but I've owned SLC Kicks, CMX's, Profi Vanadium phase plugs, Profi Kicks(paper cones), and now run CMX Kicks active, so I trust input from 3.5max6spd and other Rainbow dealers on how the newer line sounds.

I love my CMX Kicks, but they've got a metal tweet, so I'd never recommend them to ls2.

i simply have an issue with people recommending sets when they've never heard them before...regardless of whatever else the brand carries. alpine type-x is decent....type-s is shittty. case in point.

Yeah, I see your point. Manny's said on a thread in the Speakers section that the new Rainbow comps are very similar in comparison to the SLC 265 models of old....and I know for a fact that anyone that likes decent midbass with a solid, detailed, and accurate tweeter sound would love the SLC's/SLC Kicks set should look into the new 2007/08 replacement/upgrade set.

exige the thing is when you have a consensus from multiple people on here who have been here for years i don't see how you can have a problem with that. once sum gets his speakers and then listens to them he'll be like the 40th person "qualified" who recommends them, there's no reason to look the way in the case of a pair of speakers that is getting high marks among a discriminating crowd, right?
