I've got an older set of Type X 6.5's in my car right now (SPX-177R) that I managed to wreck the tweets on. I'm running them off a Kicker SX600.2 set at 125w per channel. they figure it was due to playing primarily mp3's... I can get a set of replacement tweets for 150 or I can get a set of the ID CTX65cs's for $30 more. I haven't been really happy with the type x's a little shy of volume for me especially in the mid's. Would I get an improvement going to the ID's in your opinions?

I am using the ID CTX65 comps and they sound just awesome. Very nice punchy midbass, detailed and natural sounding mids with smooth tweeters.

How much for the remaining parts of the Alpine set?

I would get a set of raw tweeters and splice them in if it were me, something like a Seas Neo, Morel MDT-12, etc. But if you want to switch up, go with the IDs. Used to run a set and liked them quite a bit, although I don't care what comp set you get it will be tough to match what you can get with a good raw tweeter.

I'm not quite ready to swap them out just yet, I need to get something to replace them first...

But if you want feel free to send me an offer. I'm guessing shipping would cost me about $35 to the US
