What is your budget.Those Quarts are a good price but you could get a lot better for a little more money.

I would say the CDT's or RSD's.I like the CDT's better but a lot of people like the RSD's-I haven't heard them in a good install just in a sound board.

How many threads are you going to make on the exact same subject? Nobody can tell you what you what the best because there is no "best". Different manufactures make different speakers and they can all sound "good" but they will also all sound different from each other. You seem to care about loudness more than anything, Quarts are SQ speakers in every way. People seem to say RSD's get very loud for the money, I just bought a set and haven't even tried them yet because I just came into some money and might want to upgrade. I will sell you mine if you want.

out of those sets which set would be the loudest and have the best highs and decent midbass on a kicker 850.4 only 2 channels going to front so 175rms per side is the max

If you dont know what speakers to get why dont you go to a shop and listen to some? Dont listen to what anybody says about whats better or not. What you like could be different than what I like. That is the best advice I was given when I was looking to upgrade. (I need to update my sig.)

i run all quarts in both my rides and love them.
as far as sq, they are hard to beat. in my truck i use the discus in 6 1/2" and 6x8 and they get around 100rms to each.crossed over at 65hz, they handle and sound excellent.
in my olds, i have a set of exp 6x9 for rear fill and mid bass, and reference 5 1/4 in the front doors along with a set of jl 6 3/4 also. i plan on replacing thoes with quarts within the next few weeks or so.
imo the mb quarts aro by far my favorites out of the many types have tried over the years.

I have them. They are pretty good speakers but a bit to harsh. I have the newer series which are made by maxxsonics vs those ones. I love my mb just the tweets are to harsh

I have MB Quart Reference series and Polk DB6501. I prefer MB Quart over the Polk. MB Quart is more clear in the mid for me and personally I think the high of Polk is a bit too much.

Great example of why to not buy speakers off what people say. He thinks there harsh and you dont. Maybe the OP will think there harsh, maybe not. Thats why he needs to listen to them first.

this is very true, everyone has different taste. the best way to choose any sub, mids, or driver is to listen to them for your self. let your ears make the decision.
