I want to glass some speakers into my pillars by the windshield. I looked at the Rainbox KX100 and the SL100 series, ID CTX4, and the CDT CL-4EX. I had some CDT components in last car and sounded pretty good. I have a good bit of room for depth. Any suggestions on the rainbox and ID speakers, or others? Thanks

Or i could do like the rest of the town does, mount about 20 horn tweeters inside my truck, in my grille, and facing out of all the windows. LOL

Can't go wrong with any of those brands. Rainbow looks like they make the higher quality 4" though.

You might also want to check out the focal 4inch comp setups. They sound pretty darn good.

ok, thanks. I am doing my mounting rings this weekend and double checking the depth I have. May be able to squeeze a 5 1/4" speaker there. How would a set of components sound mounted there? Like mount mid low and the tweeter higher?

woofers ect has bad *** german hand made quart pkc110's in stock for like a ridiculous 99$ these speakers were over 600$ 10 yrs ago. I called my rep at maxxsonics and they said they would still honor the warranty if woofers was an authorized dealer ( but they aren't). I actually still have a set and i swear to god the midbass from them is comparable to a high end 6" midbass woofer in a small sealed box. and they are actually a high power coaxially mounted component with the huge bad *** musicomp x-overs. no one else I know of has ever made a 4" like these ever, the magnet assembly is bigger than most 6.5 components and they will take huge amounts of juice and are bi-ampable.

I ordered 10 pair for my oldschool customers that know what they are from back then and resold them for 250 a pop.

i think i am just going to go ahead and get a set of CDT 4" components with the pro25 tweeter. When i had the 6.5" components they sounded pretty good in my honda, so might as well go with something I know sounds good.

I am using a set of the same cdt comps in 6.5" in one of my cars and i am very pleased with they way they sound. The 4" comps should sound excellent as well.

they will stomp alot of 6.5 components easily and they will take 100 rms all day. I ran 90 to mine on an old 80ss kicker amp.

I have the KX 100s. They blend great with my SLCs.

They're in the lower rear part of each door. I have a coupe and they set right about at your ***.

Took me forever to find them, but was well worth the wait.
