I am looking for a pair of comps that can get loud, clear, and sound good and nice detailed highs but not too harsh.

my budget is $200 and i have a zx850.4 for the amp so 175rms per side dont want to go active not sure what i am doing haha

so whats a good set of comps that i should look into, and no rsd's just dont want them so far i am considering mb's, polk momo's, and cdt ef 61cf's

or if you have input please post

Thanks

It could be, I don't have a chance to try them yet.
Don't know about Momo but I have Polk DB6501 in my another car. It is loud and clear. It makes a good front stage to me.
However I feel it a bit lack mid bass and the high is a bit too harsh.
May be I just need to adjust it, but don't have time yet.

Give the new Pioneer 720 comps a listen. Good reviews. Or cough up a few more bucks and get PRS comps. Both a pretty good bet. I just bought a set of RSDs for my beater car I curious to see how good they are. I couldnt help myself with all the great reviews on them. Why are you set against the RSDs?

probably an infinite number since he is looking for someone to suggest the "ultimate" set of comps but has to be at a dirt cheap price. Since that combo doesn't exist, he may never stop ........

EVERYTHING in car audio is a compromise.

would it be less expensive in the long run to buy the ultimate comps, than to replace them every other year, but which ones to get, where to go and listen to them in person, heck man that's the real problem there isn't enogh venues that stock them so what to do but be like kranch and keep asking over and over until he get the answer he wants and even them he's in the back of his mind he will be asking himself if he got the best money could buy, so yeah I can relate, but hell lets take a poll of the best out there.
I have some cheap pioneers for fronts but i would think the best pioneers will produce a superior sound than most others.

Why can't we recommend the PG Rsd's? Why are you dead set against those?

i have heard that they sound great with 100+ watts to each side

just pick a set, if you feel you can't get them to sound the way you like, then sell them and try again. IMO with enough power and the right tuning i think most speaker sets can sound desirable.

Yeah, that's what I did. Went through like 4 sets including the rsd's before I found the pair I liked. Running the Rainbow SLC 265 and I couldn't be happier!
