View Full Version : Want help choosing components

I'm going to be putting in some component speakers and I want your opinion. I'm looking to spend under $150 (maybe a little more) and will get an amp to match the speakers.

The sets I'm looking at right now are:
Boston Acoustics SX60
Boston Acoustics SL60
MB Quart ESA-216
MB Quart DSE-216
Pheonix Gold 400
Diamond Audio Hex S600S

Others considered. I'm going for SQ and don't really need to get real loud. I also like the sound of textile tweeters. This will be matched with a Diamond Audio D3 sub and Infinity Kappa Perfect's in the rear.

Which would you choose and why; also have you heard any of these and what do you think?

Of the ones you have on your list the Diamond Hex are by far the best. If you want a very nice set for around a hundred bux look up the Blaupunkt VC660. The yourself a favor and check them out.

I know its not on your list. But I recommend looking into Hertz audio. Hsk165's will do the trick for you sq needs.

Also look into Image Dynamics CTX65cs set for $179 shipped....I would stay away from the newer MB Quart stuff....especially if you like a more laid back tweeter....
