View Full Version : Opinions on DLS 6.5"

06-16-2008, 11:20 AM
I found these DLS Ref. R6A (http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_10493_DLS+Reference+R6A.html#) speakers on sonicelectronix and was looking at the spec sheet (http://www.audiohellman.fi/sivut/dls-pdf/specR6A_T25.pdf) and thought it looked quite good. It says 80w RMS, but with a 1.5" VC i thought it could maybe handle more (I have 180w on tap) that was my only concern.

Do DLS speakers generally sound good? Any opinions on them at all would be cool.

I'm also looking at:
Boston Pro60
Alpine Type R Comps
Polk MOMO MMC6500

I put a set of the R6A's in my demo board. I really like them. They have a very natural sound. I would almost compare them to a set of good home theater speakers. I've been doing A-B comparisons with the other components in my board (HSK, SLC's, Germaniums, and UP6) We really feel they have a fantastic sound. Very smooth, relaxed sounding. I'm pushing 100w to them on the board, not sure about 180w. They are pretty deep, that would be another concern you might address. But I would definitely be happy owning them in my vehicle.
