Still toady, and a lot of people are tired of hearing it, but the PG RSD6.5c's are the best bang for the buck.

the premier 720' got the highest score of any sub 200 speaker in car and audio. also pheonix gold scored very well for 150.00 i normally dont like them anymore but they sound nice for the price

the arc ks 6006 sound very good for a budget set of components.

I would spend a bit more and get the ID CTX65cs's, they can be had for 179 shipped, you will not be let down with the way they sound.

yeah for real the pioneer 720c's PG RSD6.5s and the ID ctx65cs's seem to be the best sub $200 sets. the 720c's can be had for about $100

i agree with those that say the ctx65cs components. very good sounding speakers. the price is really a steal in my opinion.

Forget the RSDs and pick a component set that will actually please you for a long time. I'd go with the ID set. Do it right by spending a little extra, which may save you some money in the long run.

This Eclipse amp would power your comps nicely:

Here is a great deal on an Arc amp that does 100x2

1720c is not the PRS set.

Do you guys think those IDctx65's will work well w/ this amp: http://www.soundsolutionsaudio.com/store/products/Sundown-Audio-SAX%252d125.2.html
heres a real noob question: will the tweeters be getting too much power? and those that are using these comps, what do you have the x-over set at for the tweets?

in case anyones scared to click the link, amp is: a Sundown 125rmsx2, and the compnts are rated at 100 rms... figured it'd be good to overpower a little, but wasn't sure on setting up the tweeters???

I didn't think so either but they're 60 bucks cheaper so I went with them. If they're not too great I could just use them In my rear stage and get something better up front

Right up to par if you ask me. In some aspects I preffered the Pioneers over the CTX.. Owned both sets. Installed in the same vehicle. Direct swaps between the two. Pioneer did their homework with these :)

That sounds pretty impressive. I'll have to look into them if I ever go back to a 2-way front stage. I remember reading the magazine review (vague I know, not sure which magazine), but they gave the Pioneer set a great score. I'm still a wee bit skeptical, lol...

If it's not too much trouble, could you break down the pros/cons of the sets? =)

i run my ctx components on a 125.2 and they take the power very well. they are loud, clear, and crisp. i have heard of people running more power than that but they take the sundown amp very well.

btw, anyone ever try to return to woofersetc? i bought that audio arc fd2200 amp and didnt realize how big it was, then i read that they dont accept refunds... but i found that sundown 125x2 amp for 200 so decided to sell the audio arc on ebay and buy the sundown amp. sux cause the amp is only at 120 now on ebay and i paid 180, so i'm currently loosing 60 on it... oh well, thats the price i pay for being so noobish..
