Just wondering...

I've heard Dyns and Eurosports (in my car :)) and 165k2s and whatnot...so far, the Dyns are the best but I'm wondering about the others

^^ Never heard that particular model, but I've heard some of the Dream/Contour line series, and they were amazing.

Ha ha...**** straight :)

Okay...so let's say for under $1000 a pair, what are the best 6.5" mids?

Yeah, just about anything from Rainbow is going to satisfy you. Of course, if the extreme cost of Rainbow speakers is prohibitive, Focal is probably a close second.

Someday, I hope to have Rainbow Reference components in my ride. But that's probably not going to happen anytime soon.

Woah...so the Focal Utopia mid would outperform my Eurosport mid?

Very true. In my car, install is a given for lack of space. I moved the tweeters much closer to the mid and pointed them correctly and that improved the sound a great deal

But with the mids, it's either that you stick them in the doors...or you leave them at home :)

Sadly, the best listening position in my car is with your head resting on the shiftknob (which I'll admit I do from time to time for especially good recordings).

Man, I wish kicks were feasible :( Any ideas for mids that don't mind being mounted that way?

My setup...note that I've since replaced that tweet with a Focal TN45

why no kickpanels? anything halfway decent in kickpanels will beat out some really good stuff in the doors IMO.

No space...see the pictures....

[Edit] Alright, I played around with the space down there. The biggest I could probably get would be a 4" and even that would make the passenge pretty uncomfortable...and how low and loud could a 4 get anyway?
