Have an opportunity to get Hertz Mille speakers at a decent price, just wondering how they compare to the ZR line of JL Components?

The JL's are garbage in my opinion. Go with the Hertz

I had JL's XR components, and recently got some hertz HSK-165s and I like them much more. The JLs were harsh, but the HSK's are much more laid back and smooth sounding. I know these are the same lines we are talking about, but I still say go with the Hertz.

id wait on the HERTZ. i have a set and right now i am waiting for my dealer to hear back from HERTZ regarding the mille mids seizing up in freezing temps. if they cant find a solution i may be forced to switch to a different set/brand. just a heads up. i will know by the end of the week or so.

you cant go wrong with hertz milles.
I dont buy comps any more, but if i did Hertz milles would be on my list of comps, I really really like the tweeters- not harsh & smooth, the mid is more aggressive with the right amount of power to them,
your install is very important with which ever brand you buy,

I'd call the dealer you got them from and tell them you want the re engineered mids. My dealer took a mid from a set and put it in his shops freezer over night and took it out to show the Hertz rep the next morning. The Surround material froze and he could not move the cone. The rep took that info to Hertz and I am being sent re engineered mids directly from their Italy location. Since you are in Canada i HIGHLY recommend you look into this. Any subzero temps and your speakers will destroy themselves if you try to play them. Trust me I've gone through two mids already.

Is there a way to know what version you get, re-engineered or not?

Go for the hertz :D The JL are harsh and over price compared to the performance that they can do.

Man i didn't think of sub zero temperature can damage your speakers :( . Luckily i live down south.

+1 Agreed

They are certainly not garbage and they sound fantastic. I will agree with you that you can get more for your money elsewhere though.

i would think that if the material around the surround froze up, then any & all mids would freeze up as well!!!!!
