component speakers. i think components sounds way better than coaxial but they are more expensive.

people on this forum seem to be raving about Pioneer Rev coaxials. maybe you should search for those on this forum.

second of all, component systems can be found all over the place for $100, if you would rather invest in a component system rather than coax's

www.woofersetc.com
www.ebay.com

Here are more then likly the best sounding set of comps for the price you will find and maybe for twice the amount. Do not let the Blaupunkt name fool you this is a great set. Look at the specs and yes I have listen to them I have set now. Very DLS/Dynaudio sound to them. The Velocity subs are super nice also Carbon Fiber cones, and the Velocity amps will amaze you.

I bought mine from one of my local Distribertors. I could get you a set, but I they would be around 120 shipped (believe me not making money off you. The ebay price is what I paid for mine and I own a shop) to you I could give you a short warrenty (3-4 months, don't know who will be installing them, but I would like to help) over the ebay set, but the ebay set is cheaper and I don't think you will have a problem with them

If you want components for < $100, why not the PG RSd65cs?

Seems like you are getting bent out of shape because you don't like their opinions/suggestions they are giving you.

We are trying to help you.

Componets give off better sound, have more choices to get them to sound a cetain way and have their own passive crossover.

Coxials will do their thing though and once amped can sound good as well.


I would do the componets myself though.

I recommend the PG Rsd's as they can be had for under 100 bucks shipped at a few places. Nice souding mid and not a very harsh tweet. Probably the best bang for your buck componet set around right now.

Good luck.

think you should get the Cadence CWM6($75), I just heard them off headunit power and liked the way the midrange sounds compared to the Rsd's.

The PG Rsd's are nice no doubt, but I tell you the Blau's are great for the money. I have both.

well i just put in my new pair Cadence CWM-6KIT... and so far i am very impressed with the speakers. Jason at Cadence store is very helpfull, he knows his stuff. i would suggest these speakers to any one looking for a pair of 6.5'' and looking to spend around 75 bucks shipped... only thing that i wish that could be better with the speakers is the voice, it has a great solid beat... im sure when they get broke in to they will sound even better. i am very pleased with Cadence Speakers and will be buying more from them
