Ok, I think that I have narrowed it down to (3) sets of 6.5" Components:

Focal PolyGlass 165VR
Diamond HEX S600A
Image Dynamics CTX65CS

Which one do ya'll think would be the best ran off of 100w?


Thanks for all the help!

I'd or focal but you can't go wrong with any of the 3. What"s ur budget? Are you dead set on these 3?

Not really, don't want to go anymore expensive than these. I have lots of research and this is what I have came up with so far.

Other options are appreciated also.

Thanks!

I think you'd like the focals the best.

The ID65's are my choice from the list. The focal are good but the tweeters are too harsh and the HEX are out of the question if they are the newer ones made in the past few years.

Thanks for the opinions everybody. I really want the Focals, so that is probably what I am going to end up buying

Thanks Again for the help!

Out of those 3, I'd do the Focals, and then the ID's. JMO

The Focal tweets are really hit or miss, you may love them or hate them...there isn't a lot of room in the middle.

But I'd rather have a DIY active set over any of those, personally...

I have had several sets of Focal comps and the mid and midbass sounded great but the tweeter was an ear killer. The ID tweeters have a much smoother sound.

Go listen to the Focals before you commit but they get my vote.

ID's for the price

how loud are those ID you have, and how much power are you giving them?
