View Full Version : Need a high-end advice

Hello, I have a problem which is connected with a choice of midbass speakers. Actually I can't choose between several models such as Alpine SPX-Z18T, Genesis Absolute, ScanSpeak, or maybe you will offer me some other speakers. My car always takes part in SQ competitions and rather well-known in Russia. Thank you in advance for your help.

Where are they located? What's your low-pass point?

The ones you listed are good choices, I'd also look into Hybrid Audio L8s or maybe something Audio Technology...

They are located in front doors near stock places. Did you manage to hear these speakers from my list?

The Alpine F#1s are OEM'ed by Scanspeak...I've heard the stock Revs, not the Alpine-badged ones. Haven't had a chance yet to hear the Genesis ones, they're pretty rare in the States.

The Revs are great, some of my favorite speakers, also heard they compare pretty well even with the new Illuminators :)

Thank you, and my last question-how much for Revs in the USA?

The 18W's are like $230 each from Madisound Speaker Components - the US distributor for ScanSpeak.

As with anything, try to listen before you buy. But I don't think they will sound a ton different as they all are basically the same speaker.
