Although I haven't heard any of those sets, I'm gonna recommend you don't spend the extra money for components in the back. It draws too much imaging to the back and you'll be pissed off about it. TRUST me. I don't even have comps in the back. I have 5x7's and I have to keep the gain down because it gets annoying.

What was the reason for doing comps all around? If it's to be nice to the passengers, then you can be nice with some cheap coaxials. They will appreciate it. Many speakers will sound decent.

thats what fade is for :cool:

btw KAMAK, im becoming skeptical on the MOMO's. discus's (MBQUART) and momos both retail at 300, but the momos are 170 at cost, and the MBQuarts are 130 at ikesound. im seriously thinking your paying for a name with momos. go look at the specs sheet.

Ok, then answer me this, big guy: why fade away from speakers that are components, generally much more expensive than regular coaxial speakers? He can do whatever he wants, and so can you. You can buy two pairs of the same components, then waste your money because you end up fading the sound to the front anyway. :rolleyes:

well you see, bigger boy:p , he's gonna do what he wants no matter what anyone else tells him to do. not to mention, i could give a **** less about staging, and i think its strange how they hold competitions on something that is so debateable because its really all preferance and opinion. i know what your saying about staging, and we have an idea about what its gonna be like, but thats what i want to do, and i think its what he wants to do as well so that there is sound all around the interior of the vehicle, not just the front.

EDIT: i plan on rolling back the rear tweeters a little, but i really want the extra sound from extra woofers. coaxials also dont put out mids like coaxials do, and i know this first hand. maybe its cause there is a big hole in the center of the cone most of the time.

alll smiles? :D i get too much **** at work, i want to keep my forum experience pleasent.

no, it's all good, I'm not trying to start anything. All I'm saying is that it's a pretty big waste of money in my opinion to buy components for all-around.

How much are you looking to spend?

The $300 to $400 range the Kodas are in has a lot of players...Focal 165k's, CDT HD's, Cadence Neo's, Crystal Cs, Boston Pro's, JL Audio XR's (these are crap)...

i have a question for you then BonusBobo, not sarcastic. i have a fairly large car (2000 impala), and i was beginning to wonder if the tweets would be as audible in the back as in the front?

What do you mean? If you put the tweeters in the back, would they be as audible as they would be if they were in the front? If that's the question, my answer is probably no. Generally if you look at vehicles that have awesome soundstages, they have the highs coming from the front. There's a lot of opinion involved though, of course. My dad likes to hear the music come from the rear more, for instance, but I don't.

MB Quart, out of these three, offers the best solution to your questoin. True, they are expensive, but they are worth the money. Not only are they good, but they also offer a huge variety of choices. Their best to offer, is in the Q Series. Though, you should stay away from their woofers. Their woofers do not offer the great sound of bass that you can get from other companies. But their midbass add-ons offer great sound@

But, if you want to go with the best, you should stick with Morel Supremo. But stay away from their woofers!

Out of all these companies, there is only one defininte answer, that comes to mind. MB Quart. I have listened to all of these 6.5s, and MB carries the best stuff. Why so good? Well, it is because of several reasons. MB sounds great, at all volumes! Whether you prefer quiet, or loud MB delivers. Also, MB's materials are very long lasting, very durable, in other words. They will work with you, and your car, for years to come! Best of all, MB has different lines. So, if you want chep, you'll get good stuff, but not their best. But, I don't know anybody, who wants their best. It's way too expensive for my taste. Or, if you want expnesive, you'll get good stuff.
MB is a German company, and they are just wonderful. Yes, I do like MB, but it is becauase they deliver such great sound! They deliver great mid frequencies, and great high frequencies. The only thing that they're not wonderful at, though, is their woofers. There are companies out there, that would beat MB easily, when it comes to woofers. Not just the expensive companies, but also the middleclass companies. So, whatever you do, do not buy MB's woofers. You can get great sounding bass for cheaper, from another company, plus more carshaking bass!!!

Yes, Rockford is an American company.....Yes, Rockford owns MB Quart.....However, MB Quarts are still made in Germany by the same people that made them years ago before they were gobbled up by Rockford. Just thought I'd add that little tid bit.

It may be beside the point but you were saying that Mr. Farmer was wrong when indeed he was right. But thats beside the point too. It doesn't matter.
