I know its been answered thousands of times.... But after so much research I still have not decided on a front runner.

I am looking to spend a max of about 230$.....
I am powering them with a Blaukpunkt amp which pushes 75 watts. So I do not want to have any shot of clipping or blowing out these speakers. I've allready purchased a cheaper pair of pioneers which sounded great, but they couldn't handle the amp and it just wasn't loud enough unless I turned the gain up. So I blew them out. Then I decided to go cheap and buy a ****** pair of hifonics.... What a mistake that was. They can handle the power, but they sound worse than anything I've ever heard before.

So here I am. I do not want to blow these speakers out, or have to buy another pair. I am looking to get loud at times, but I also want to maintain sound clarity. I listen to everything from Rock, to Rap, to club music with lots of bass. So the speakers need to be able to hit the highs, as well as the lows.

So far I'm looking at:

Infinity Kappa 60.9cs. I am liking these because of the price, and the good name of Infinity tweeters.

Alpine SPR-17. Once again, the price is good, and I know type R's have a generally good name. Also the power handleage is good as well.

Diamond Audio S600s Hex. I really do not know a lot about these speakers, but I learned about them through CA.com. The power looks great, but the price is a little steeper. However, I wont mind paying this price if the quality is that much better.

Any other models I should be considering? I heard I should stay away from Polks....

Thanks guys.

U won't be dissapointed in the diamond audio hex s600s. I had them in my integra running off an xtant amp and they sounded great, good midbass and awesome clear highs. U can get them at onlinecarstereo.com for $199. Also look into getting the hertz hsk 165. Datboiroy os hooking me up with a set for $229.

PG RSD's for $87 shipped FTW. Those are out of the question. Even though some people swear on them, I dont think I really want to go under 200$.

Throw the pg's outta the equation, look at woofersetc.com and find a set u like and lyttleviet or datboiroy will beat their prices.

I would highly recommend the new Audioque component sets. They are within your price range, and are a very high quality, German made component set. I'm running mine on a 75 watt per channel US Amp, and they take it like a champ. The tweeter in the AQ set is amazing.

If you REALLY want something that is going to sound good, bump up the price and get some Morel Tempo 6's. they're fricken sweet.


I got them and have fallen in love with them. I find myself sneaking out of my house at like 3 am to go listen to music. :laugh:

I have gone through lyttleviet and in my opinion he is more then trustworthy. :D

He is a trust worthy guy, I bought an old amp off of him and a few other goodies.

the ctx65cs aren't going to be extremely loud off 75watt.. i'm sure we'll see you again in few days asking for an amp :D



They do get loud, but give them at least 2x that power:rolleyes:




pushing mine with 4x your power and they never even get smelly. Great speakers, lot of fun!
