View Full Version : Options for 3 way components

06-17-2008, 09:29 AM
I'm replacing everything in the LR3 but the HU. I need to get a good 3-way set for the fronts and decent 2-way components for the rear. I don't know any company besides Hertz and I've seen JL that makes 3-ways anymore. I've got 2 6 1/2" cutouts in the front doors and the tweets in the pillers. If I need to I will either buy a seperate 6" woofer and add it to the xover or use a full 3 way and make a 3.5" cutout for the 3rd speaker.

Any suggestions? Also, no info on how much power I'm going to be running.

yeah, the dynaudios a little to high for my budget, lol. Roughly 4-500 would be good, I could obviously go less, but I know I want to push at least 150 to them.

350- those CDT's? How are they compared to Bostons? I had the pro60's in my last setup and loved them.

diamond, boston, and eclipse all make 3 way setups as well :fyi:

I couldn't find any info on Boston 3-way. I'd love to find a pair. Fk diamond and I'd rather stay away from eclipse. Anyone know how the focal sound?

you can look into some hybrid audio. The clarius line should be in your budget.

fusion powerplant 3-way

BNIB $130 shipped..

WTH is fusion? :wow:

I was looking at the Hybrid Audio, I couldn't find specs on them though, even through there website. Also the Clarius doesn't have 3-ways, just 2-way. I'd have to step up to the Legatia Series, 750 for the set.
