are they really as good as i am reading about?

hard to believe a 70 dollar set of comps are reliable and sound as good as ive been told they do...

any owners want to chime in for me?

I owned them but do not anymore. They were good for 70 bucks. But they are not great.

not looking for greatness, thanks for the input

what did you like/not like about them?

they are for the wifes car, im thinking either a set in the front active, or passive with rear fill.

if i like them enough ill buy enough to do a 5.1 TM setup in the house with a MTM center channel.

I like mine, they're nothing special though. Good mid-bass, and you can hear the vocals/music well over the bass. I need a new amp for mine though.

worth the money youd say though, right?

or is there another set at the same price point with similar/better sound and output?

they are worth what they cost. **** good mid bass...the tweets and the crossovers are just alright. You would be hard pressed to find something better for the price.

They are only 59 on woofersetc.

SO so SOOOOOO many threads on this dude, I can't believe you couldn't find what you were looking for.

Mid-Bass is excellent. Highs are ok. I actually like the crossovers myself. They take abuse as well. I have mine running on about 130 rms and they are running perfectly for about 8 months.

Got mine on tuesday and like them. I don't see how they sell these for so cheap and
still make a profit.

Because other companies have HUGE margains where PG is going for smaller margins but greater sales.

Sorry I'm reading about supply demand right now but I bet they decided that the equilibrum price was higher and went under it but also increased supply. Just a great situation for us really.

Other companies go for fewer sales but huge margins. I think PG actually makes more money this way *shrug*.

Not bad, but for 30 more dollars, I perfered my Pioneer Premier 720c's much more. I actually had better bass response out of them than my PG Rsd's.

Good for the money, but for a little more dough, would be much happier IMHO.

Just picked up another set of 720's since I have decided to get back into the swing of things.

Well, technically it'd be better for the economy for making bigger margins because it uses up less natural resources and pollutes less, however, it adds more jobs. But since they're probably outsourced, I doubt it matters to us, really.



But OP: I installed a pair of RSD's in my ex's car. Her muffler rusted off (it was an old G2 Integra LS), and they easily drowned out the muffler, and while they did miss some low end sound, and sounded really hollow with out subs. But, I think that's how most comps are.

I heard there were a set of comps that were going for like $40 bucks or so that were also a good steal. But, I don't remember the name.

Might be this set: http://www.millionbuy.com/pows6c.html

How much power would you have going to the RSDs? They need more than their rated power (100w RMS per side would do the trick) to sound decent IMO.

I highly agree with this. Ive heard both the Pioneers and the RSD's and currently own the Pioneer 720's which are in my wifeys car. Def worth the extra 30 bucks .

Although if your budget is strictly set at $60-$70, definitely go with the RSD's.

Maybe. I can't really remember to be honest.

my rsd's off of my alpine pdx 2.150 are slammin and i have had them over a year now. replaced a set of focal k2p's up front. in fact i decided to use the pg's expecting to go back to the focals, but never did. i enjoy the set very much

I'll still doubt them until i hear them.

ca.com reviews will not sway me to try them :)

I'm not sure if those folks knows what midbass is.

Maybe PG will come out with a 10" midbass for their next RSD set and then you'll give em a try :D

The PB comps were surprisingly good for the $$$. Had some decent snap on metal and the highs were pretty loud and clear. I've heard worse comps that cost a LOT more...

If you are referring to my previous post which im not sure if you were , I want to make clear that im and no where short of knowing exactly how midbass should be and sound . Just alittle FYI, I have over 60 sq/ft of Deadening on each front door with non hardening clay and acoustic foam out the *** . I run the Pioneer PRS active and have previously owned over 30 different comps in the past including 3 way setups . There are a few people on here who can vouch this . Not that you give a **** but I Just felt that you were refering to my post . If not , then we'll leave it at that :-) . All fun in games

I've been hearing this story for a year now and still no higher level components. I wish they would hurry up.:mad:

there's already a bunch of good speakers out there.. why wait for PG. Instead of waiting, what you try and find out is who will be making it for them.

I'm not really in the market for new speakers anyway, just interested to see how they turn out.:cool:
