whats your price range?

mbquart is known for really harsh tweeters, i personally cant stand them, i cringe at loud tweeters, but alas some people like that so its a matter of opinion

would i buy them? hell no, but you might like them

You might be able to find the older ones on ebay. The premium and QSD series are really nice as long as you turn down the tweeters a little on the xovers.

We run MB Quart in our sq car. If you do not know how to image your components and how to dial in the amps and crossovers then yes the tweeters could be harsh. Understand I would be what you call a silk dome tweeter guy because I do not like harsh tweeters and if you know how to set up your gear MB Quart's tweeters are very far from harsh. Old compared to new, the build quality may not be at the same level but the new tweeters are sick. If we did run the Quarts then we were going to run ID horns. MB Quarts have a very very appealing price, so I would strongly consider them.

Thanks alot for the price guys. Harsh tweeters are ok in my book. The ks series I had are pretty bad but I like that tinny sound. I just cant stand em like those audiopipe bullet tweeters. Ima listen around to some stuff before I buy. Does any one have any other opinions?

I ran MB Quart QSD216's and they were beautiful. I ran them passive with the tweet at -3db and I loved them. Im not a fan of harsh tweets but I would say I like bright tweeters. If you like bright Tweets then MB quarts are great. I also ran them in a non deadened door and it wasnt sealed and the Mid bass was pretty nice.

x2 I never understood why the called them harsh. I was only giving mine 50w RMS but still, they werent harsh at all. kept up with a Fi Q perfectly.
