new guy here and he needs help picking what speakers cant demo them so thats not a option to see what he likes best, so its up to people posting on here to describe the sound of the different speakers and the pros and cons of them and which you like the best.

hey DJdownfall all companies are good, but it depends what type of sound your'e looking for or how watts you will ginving the comps.
(Morel hybrid ovation) are my favorite speakers/they are so smoooth sounding with eaver type of music, they make everything sound clean.
(Hertz)milles sound pleasing to the ear just the mid is to laid back for me. the tweeter is really nice, you can mismatch the hsk mids with milles tweeter which will be more agressive.
(Focal)they make one of the most musical mids that i've heard, but there tweeter is kind of HARSH.
(CDT Audio) the es62i 2009 mids are very nice,The mid is really tight & punchy more the like focal, but they have the smooth aggressive sound deep mid bass that i was looking for.
I got a free pair which i didnt think i wound like because of there past history.they probably have the best support on the web. there tweeter isnt smooth as some people claim they are kind harsh for a soft dome.

I agree with most of this but do not agree that the mlk mid is laid back...

Hey okiedokie, that was some great reviews you put here.
I am still waiting for other people to chip in though.
Thank you

If you search this forum, you will find at least one very informative thread about the MLK165, I followed it as long as it was active. They seem to be power hungry, quite a few talked of giving them 200" RMS +.

I've heard the K2P upgrades and HAT Pro set and IMO I'll take my $180 active set up any day of the week.

Consider going active as you can get MUCH more for your $$$...

I meant by the mlks being more laid back compaired to the hsk
the mlk will sound very nice active, but more of power hungry SQ mid.
With most of the these speakers it all about what sounds good to your ears & what types of music you listen to.\
I mostly listen to underground positive hip-hop which has more of a jazzy smooth sound.
I do like more a mid bass sound, but at times i love to listen to hard knock as well.
Some underground rock can also sound very good to me.
So if you know what your music taste is then you'll be able to narrow it down to the speakers that will please you.

It's easy to find a set of comps but I've had a hard time picking individual drivers for an active system. Is there a thread somewhere with speakers that compliment eachother for active solutions??

Thanks

I noticed the OP is in NJ - i'd go and see Don @ unexpected creations (6spdcoupe) and see what he can show you... then you get the benefit of being able to demo some quality equipment so you know you're buying something you like.

yes it is harder to find raw driver that sound or match up well, but remember every car model acoustics isn't going to be the same.
So i'm saying that if the set that works well in my car may not work well in your car.
If you want to go active then you will have to (what i call) buy & try until you find what you like.
reviews are can good & bad.
I have triedd some of the drivers that guys on DIYMA have tried.
I didn't like most SEAS brands for my taste or Re audio which is a good company as well, but they dont work for me.
Maybe you'll need go overto DIYMA.com to talk to more experienced guys thatwill know how to guide you.
