i have already thought about the AQ 6.5's, the pg rsd's and wanted to know if these would be good choices and what are some better ones? i will be buying a AQ 4x90 soon to power them unless i can find a better choice.....

edit: and my price range is about 250

those look like they have potential, do you have any idea if they would outperform the AQ's or rsd's

never herd the aq's but there just as good if not better than the rsd's.

I use Infinity Reference Series 6022i speakers in my front and rear doors driven by a Rockford Fosgate P400-4 four channel amp in my 2003 Honda CRV. Those speakers go planty loud enough all the way to ear splitting levels. They sound great when played at any volume level and are not too expensive.

tweeters are ear splitting and not in a good way, the rest is meh.
From all the set I had, the cdts lines were the loudess with eqal power. Don't know what you can have for 250$, but i'm pretty sure it will be a nice set.

also bridge your amp for sure. If the speakers can take it, you'll be happy, trust me :crazy:

Infinity Perfects 6.1

I could say a thousand things about these speakers.

Only down part is that they take months to break in.

Up side is that they are always loud and they go from sounding awsome to unbelievable with time!

Gotta have everything tight and good power so that they will perform at their full potential.

If all someone has to say about a comp set is that it "sounds good", I wouldn't believe 'em.

lol, JimJ.

If your looking for loud, check out Beymas. Polk are ok, but are nothing special.
The Hexs are decent, providing you have the amp to push them and they are in a good sealed door.

so you saying that Quarts don't get loud and still sound good. these are not the Maxxsonics or the RF Quarts. mine are when Quarts were still made in Germany pre-02.

actually I am willing to bet a ID cd1e set off of 100 watts a side would take most guys here breath away if done right and tuned at least half assed.

oh. so sounding good is all about what you have and not how you install and tune it. I get it now.

At least for the average listener

Infinity sounds like crap IMO

You need to stop smoking crack

Or listen to some speakers that are worth listening to.

OP: search the classfieds maybe you will find somthing nice in your range:)

do you really think that everyone sits there with a RTA to tune in their speakers??? out the box German made Quarts are second to none. and yes tuning and how the install is done does matter but very go through what is needed to get to a flat frequency response across the spectrum.

I installed some blaupunkt velocity comps last wekend I paid 60 shipped off ebay. The vc650 set. The cf mids use a 3" coil and the silk tweeters use a relatively large neo slug. So far I am very impressed. Especially with the clarity at high volumes. They are seeing 200+ watts per side and get very loud. The mid/tweeter transition is not perfect, but there are 2 crossover point settings for the tweeters, 3 or 6k. I haven't tried the 3k setting yet, but I am confident they will improve when I do. Overall extreme value and well above average sq. Can't say I've heard a louder comp set.

all we know about those speakers are that they're quartz, made in Germany, and that you think they sound better than everything else mentioned in this thread. that's it. no model number. no specs. no graphs. nada. I'm not even sure if you've heard everything that's mentioned in this thread... president of common sense.

almost all of the SQ winners run MB Quarts. In 2000-2003 MB Quart won with their Demo Jetta that ran their Discus line with PSD crossovers and Zapco amps with an Eclipse head unit and Audiocontrol EQLs on each channel.

i didnt know mb quart won alot past 1995.....(had mb quarts from 90-93)
I actually like the new tweeters better than the old, also imo mb quarts can not hang with a horn set in detail nor volume..not even close in volume unless you are talking 3+ component sets LOL

Lot's of people on crack and love the Infinity perfects! Just read the reviews! Speakers that sound like crap couldn't win as many competitions as Infinity Perfects have! Stoping hating! People like what they like.
