Do you need 5.25" or 6.5"? you listed all the comps as 6.5" except the Cdt's are 5.25":confused:

I would remove the PG RSD from that list they honestly sound so bad to me. I would go with the Cdt's.

I'm gonna vote for the Pioneer's :cool: I just installed these in my car yesterday, and am blown away with how awesome they sound for the price. My friend that helped with the install has Rsd's and I liked the sound of the Pioneers better....as did he. I am 100% satisfied with these components, and I'm sure they will only get better once they get broken in :D

I wouldn't buy a set of speakers just because they have a longer warranty that another set. As long as they are installed correctly and setup correctly there should be no problems. Besides I figure if there was a warranty problem then it would happen within the 1 year warranty that most others provide.

I am using the same Cdt's but in 6.5" and love them. Solid midbass, smooth tweeters and detailed mids.

Your going active anyway:

$25 each Madisound 6102-4 6" Polypropylene Cone Woofer
http://www.madisound.com/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=45_228_256&products_id=554

$12.90 each Vifa BC25SC55-04 1" Textile Dome Tweeter (truncated)
http://www.madisound.com/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=45_229_270_324&products_id=8355

Basically $77 plus shipping, or you could go a little higher with a better tweeter.
Still it's got to beat a $120 component set.

The ARC 6006 can be had for around your budget too. Check those out as I was very impressed.
