I figured out my sub stage and im getting a 18" bl along with a SAZ1500. I now need to figure out wich components go get. I currently have Infinity 680.7CS 5x7 and not really happy with them... I liked them at first but now they disgust me. Im looking to buy 6.5 components with good midbass and sound AMAZINGLY clear. They will go in my F150 2005 extended cab but im not really sure what the mounting depth is. Looking to spend around $300 for the comp's and they will be powered by Ed Nine.2x or SAx 100.2. Thanks in advance

Image Dynamics xs65 or xs57. Abit more than your looking for but then again I recommend double or triple that power for a front stage.

Rainbows SLC265 are nice. Friend got them in his civic powered by a Sundown 100.4, and its pretty loud, tweeters were little harsh to my ears though, but midbass kicked pretty good for an IB setup (I belived theyll sound better sealed)

for straight out volume, I like the HSK 165 over the germs. They seem to sound better the louder they get. Thats not to say I don't like the germs, but I just think the HSK play louder. Though if you really want midbass, I would check out the DLS UP6.

ADS are very well-balanced comps. Much better than Diamonds or CRT. Infinity Perfect are very lifelike or Kicker R65 and JL Audio have very good reviews.

Then that means the mille's are like jesus?

And how would you compare the HSK 165 to the Infinity 680.7cs?

I wouldn't say the mille's are like jesus..... maybe his dog or his cat or something as long as you run enough power to them. I'm not a big fan of oval speakers, so already I like the HSK over the infinity. Though I used to like Infinity, I don't know if my listening tastes changed, or the speakers did, but I'm not a big fan of their tweeters either. I like a smooth soft dome tweeter, but thats personal preference. If you wanna hop on a plane ride, you can come out to my shop and demo the speakers yourself. We carry DLS, Rainbow, and Hertz. To be completely honest, I don't know that I have been able to single out which speaker I like the best. I can tell you that if I were to get any of the sets in my board as a gift I would be pleased. I would say this week I am actually leaning towards the R6A's as my favorite, but I'm on this kinda relaxed. smooth music kick right now. If I were to jump back into the rock/rap I would probably pick the HSK
