Looking at some sac 265.25 for up front. Any suggestions? Comments? Reviews?

Rainbow makes very nice sounding comps. I have not heard those but i have a set of the SLC comps and they sound excellent.

I'm running some rainbow slc's right now... couldn't be happier! Love the sound.

I'm running the higher line mids and tweets right now, and I love em.

The sac 265.25 set uses an aluminum tweeter, but it shouldn't be bright at all.....and if it is for your tastes, you can always EQ it down a little.

For the money, I'd definitely go with the set you're looking at.

Thanks. I know it's a little late, I kinda forgot I posted this one. I'm also looking at some Focal 136v components right now. if anyone has any feedback about those I would greatly appreciate it. Or if anyone has any comments on the Rainbows vs the Focals, that would be awesome too. I found a great deal on the Focals...$150 shipped including the custom made speaker brackets to get them into the front doors in my Caprice.

Focal tweeters are a love/hate decision...I wouldn't buy them without listening to a set first.

I'm about to pull the trigger on a set of Rainbow Germaniums in the next coupe weeks. I have heard the Focals and like mentioned above, they can be bright if not set correctly. I heard a set of K2P's that sounded pretty good.... but I prefer a silk tweeter myself.

So I just ended up getting the Focal 136v component speakers. Hopefully I'll like them. If not, I guess it's on to something else. I also put some Polk db651 coax speakers in my Jimmy's doors and some Alpine 4x6s in the dash. Something a little cheaper for my daily driver. Sounds decent, but definitely isn't giving me the sound I was hoping for. I've got a 300hz crossover for the Alpines and I'm using the built in high pass filter on my Alpine CDA 9853 for the door speakers.
