Ok so I am going to purchase a new component set real soon and wanted to get some opinions on which set to go with. Most I will spend is $300. I narrowed it down to these three choices.

1)Hertz Audio HSK165 6-1/2" - 125wrms - 4ohms - $300

2)RE AUDIO XXX 6.5C - 150wrms - 2ohms - $280

3)CDT AUDIO HD-62 w/ drt-25 silk tweeter - 180wrms - 4ohms - $250

So which one would you choose out of those (or another comparable set I dont know about?)? Amp is a crunch gp4150. Will get a different amp soon. Does 150w x 4 @ 4ohms and 300w x 4 @ 2ohms (I know they are not rms, probably around half that). Thanks!:cool:

If you can spend a bit more the Alpine TypeX pro set is a great set and easily outperforms some 700-800 dollar sets

I was gunna say, I have no experience with either...but I did run some CDT's and wasn't as pleased with them as I suspected.

XXX set looks really cool, I wouldnt mind trying them....that being said I probably am going to try them for less than $300

my hertz are the best speakers ive ever listened to, the hsk's are also very nice sounding, really warm speaker, great midbass, just make sure you have some power for them

out of those choices, i'd choose the Hertz.

I used to own a set of Hertz speakers before. Very nice set it was. Would I buy Hertz again? In a heartbeat.

My pick would be the Hertz. I have the HSK165 set in my Focus and for the price I have not heard or owned anything that can do what they can do for the price I paid.

If they have a weakness it would be they could have a little more authority in the midbass region. They will run down to 63hz @18db no problem but they could use a little more punch down low.

Midrange is very good, detailed and acurate.

I run mine active up to 6k without cone break-up.

They are a impressive set of comps for the price.

I was able to pick up a set for $235.00 with a hook-up.

Hertz out of those choices or find yourself some Morel's.
