Hey guys

I'm new here and been out of the car audio thing for a couple years now. I'm not sure whats new and forgot alot of the good model products. I just bought an Acura TL and of course looking for new speakers. Can I get some suggestions on some good 6.5 separates? I have a 300/4 which i will bridged. I'm only looking at changing the fronts and leaving the rears stocks. Price wise not looking at spending over 300.

thanks in advance :)

which ones would be best? looking for something not too sharp but not crazy soft. Somewhere in the middle

Diamond Audio S600a - Diamond Audio HEX 6.5
Morel Tempo 6 - Morel 6.5
Image Dynamics CTX65CS - Image Dynamics 6.5
Pro60 - Boston Acoustics Pro 6.5 2-Way Component Speakers
Rainbow SLC 265.25 Kick NG - Rainbow SLC NG 6.5

please help me narrow it down

Hard to beat those ID's for the price. I haven't heard the Morels but I never stop hearing of their sweetness, hear good of the Rainbows also.
The Morels & Rainbows would probably out perform the ID's, but I don't know if it would justify the price difference.
I'd say the Morels but the ID's & Rainbows would probably do better w/ the power you got.....I guess I can't decide either...lol

Tempos and ID's get most of the love on the forums. My Tempos came in the other day, just waiting to get my car out of the shop now...

PG rsd's are a affordable but solid pick also!

I'd go active over any of those preassembled sets...since you already have a 300/4, no sense in wasting it on passives when you have the channels to bi-amp :)

Yea I'd go with the I'd's the tempo's or the rainbows. Morel tempo first, image dynamics second, rainbows third. Don't forget about the focals in that price range too.
