View Full Version : Which is a better deal?

Phoenix Gold RSD 6.5 comps for $105


Pioner REV 6.5 components for $135

will I notice $30 worth of difference?

They'll get 70W a piece. :cool:

the rsd's have a lot of potential. never heard the revs though.

I kind of want to buy them today... So any other input would be good...


Please... ;)

I have the rev's they are underpowered but still have great midbass and the hi's arent too harsh

Revs sound nice, but I've not heard, or remember hearing, the PGs.

go with PG's... alot of people on here have vouched for them!

I am leaning towards the RSD's, but they'd only be getting 70W... not even 70W rms, and I've heard they need a lot more than that to truly shine, but since they are $30 cheaper, that'll probably be the route I go.

Unless someone can convince me that the Revs are better. :rolleyes:

get the rsd's run them on the power you have now..... then add more power later if you feel the need to.

They are close... the Rev's might have more midbass potential, but that is a big "maybe"... depends on install. I prefer the overall sound of the RSD's.

Behind door number 3 are the Cerwin Vega V-Max 65 at onlinecarstereo.com for $50 more... they are a step up from the RSD's.

RSD's and i don't think those cerwin's are as good and the rev's mid bass is lacking to me

RSDs for my money. I know the REV coaxes have been popular around here, but I don't know anyone who's run the components. In that price range, you can't go wrong with the RSDs.

Rev comps can be found cheaper, keep an eye out, and I would definately take the revs > rsds. Lower FR and better tweet.

Agreed as a third option.

In any case, you'll get the most midbass out of whatever you choose if your doors are sealed and deadened.

With 2x70w rms, I'd strongly recommend the REVs if you have no plans to get a more powerful amp in the near future.

I'd go with the RSD's.

I think the rev's have slightly better clarity and sq. I have run rev's and rsd mids for comparison.

I love how everyone jumps on the rsd boner and recommends rsd's to you without ever having run rev's or probably any other comp set for that matter.
