I currently have a set of MTX 6001 comps powered by an Infinity 7541 amp. I really dont like the way these speakers sound, so I would like to get something far better. When I bridge my amp I will have 278 watts a channel to power the speakers, so I will have plenty of power for a high end set. Which sets of components should I consider?

What kind of budget do you have?

I'd rather leave the amp unbridged, doesn't make any sense to go with a "high-end" set and then run passives that aren't ideal for your specific install...

My budget is around $300-400, but I would prefer to buy a set which are considered the best bang for the buck.

What do you mean by that? I thought component speakers came in a complete set

He means going active processing and buy speakers and make a pair. 880prs some seas mids and seas neo tweets and some decent tuning skills you will be way ahead of the game. Deadening is always a large improvement.

That seems a little more complicated... I would prefer to just buy a set of comps.

Any other brand names to consider? When I searched the forum I came across names such as CDT, Hertz, Polk, Rainbow. These companies make many different models of comps, so Which ones are good?

Cerwin Vega V-max 65 should be good up to 200 watts w/80HZ or higher high-pass crossover... just go easy on the gains/volume. See onlinecarstereo.com

Critical Mass comps will handle more power and a lower crossover point but they will probably be over your budget.

The Digital Designs DDC6.5 componet set is very nice...they have got nothing but good reviews...they have been compared to the older MB Quart ...Boston PRO's and other high end componet sets.....
