I'm rebuilding my system right now and am in need of some good comps. I'm looking at the Diamond Audio's but haven't heard them personally. I found a review that's about 5 years old, but wanted to hear what other people thought... budget is about 200 - 250 shipped.

I personally love them. Have used them in about 4 setups and always outstanding. Many people will say they lack midbass but i have yet to experience that. I even traded out my own vehicles rainbow germs for the hex s600's and it was like night and day. They get loud, handle nice power and sound awesome. I'm a big fan of both the silk and aluminium sets...

Do a search on the Morel Tempo 6. They will fit the bill nicely. The S600 isn't competitive in that price range anymore.

i heard those s600's were amazing if you just give them their rated power.

To be honest, I think they are still selling based on their reputation from several years ago. They are not the same speakers as they were back then.

you're probably right, they still have the reputation though. They have priced their stuff too highfor too many years. I hear they are harsh by some, but others say they are some of the best around. UUGGHHHH, the decisions you have to make in car audio sometimes just kills mmmeeeee!!!!

Ah, it's not the end of the world. Run them for a while, you may like them. a good install is so much of the equation anyway. Besides, if you are like me you would be changing them out soon anyway. Another curse of the hobby.;)

I tried many different comps in my times.
Dyna audio = really nice nice mid bass
Germs = okay
Mbquarts q's and rsd's = okay
hex's = Really nice
Dyna are nice but pricey.

To me they sound great best buy for your buck. The Diamond audio's Hex's Silks sound beautiful crisp clear tweeters not harsh all. it will be a little harsh if you get a aluminums but if you have an eq u will be fine and put them in the back in the rear deck.

Midbass is fine. but even better if you dynamatt of fatmat your doors or rear deck.Get the right amp these things will sound lovely.

I have 5 sets 3 silk and 2 alums in my cars i also have a set of d662s they sound nice too.
