Thoughts, anyone have them, like them, the good the bad, the ugly.

Very nice sound quality speakers,



Thanks, a local shop has some brand new ones they said would sell me for $90, and I don't know anything about them, they look beefy, however looks don't mean much.

They go for twice that on woofersetc, so I'm guessing that's a good price. Hopefully better than the Kenwood/Pioneer/Sony stuff in that price range.

Yea, it was the last set they had, that is why i think i got the cash deal, and they just did a complete stereo install for me last week in a different vehicle.

These will make there way into my FJ40, so trail rides will improve I think.

I am gonna push these with an ARC FD220, just to see how they will do.

they should sound great off that ARC amp, both ID and ARC make really good sounding audio.

Make sure to deaden the doors.

Not going in doors, they are going in speakers boxes, and then will be placed in the back seat area of my Toyota FJ40. :cool:

This was the last set they had, at the shop, that's why i got a good deal I think, the guy told me they normally sell for $159. He also said it was a cash one time deal. Who am i to argue :D


I hooked them up yesterday too and they do kick *** with the ARC amp BTW.

Sounds like the salesman was doing some shady under the table transactions while the boss was not around. Did the salesperson put the money in cash register or his pocket? lol

I got some Image Dynamics XS-69 component speakers (with the silk-dome tweeters) and some custom baffles made for them and it cost me $569. It is hard to believe that someone would sell them for $80.

First post huh,smells fishy for some reason

Well I did quite a bit of research before buying them and it seemed they were higher-end components (or at least higher-end middle level comparatively) and these prices were competitive from everything I found. Woofers website sells them a little cheaper but they are not authorized dealers which means no warranty from what I have heard. I really can't use a sub in my truck (2009 Tacoma access cab) because I use the back for carrying all my gear if working out of state and all my photographic equipment as well so a sub just did not make sense. Would have been nice to get these components cheaper but best price I found and the baffles are custom-made to fit these mids to the doors in my Tacoma with proper clearance. I got a ARC Audio KS-125 mini amp to power the speakers so hopefully it will all sound good when done.

Why would this post sound fishy? I posted in response to these components and have not received them to install yet. I have the raammat and ensolite to deaden the doors and all the other stuff to do it just waiting on the speakers and baffles to arrive.

So where can these components be had for so much cheaper? Enlighten me...I would really like to know. :rolleyes:

Ahhhh o.k,I just thought you were trying to eventually get the op to divulge where he got the speakers from(to get the dealer in trouble)just seems funny for a first post

the ctx line and xs line are very different. you paid what you should have for the xs line. (nice choice by the way, I run the xs65 :))

actually woofers is an authorized site for ID.

commtrd

OK I was probably mistaken about woofers being authorized sellers for ID. I saw on the ARC Audio website where they were very adamant about how they did not want any internet re-sellers who were not authorized to sell their equipment. They had a section on there where they specifically listed a few like sonicelectronix, woofers, etc. as being forbidden to sell their stuff. I guess I thought Image Dynamics was the same. Anyway I have already paid for the components so just awaiting getting here to install.

np just thought i'd let you know. is the place you got them from installing them for? where are you installin them at? i've heard a few cars with and they sound great.

I purchased from a guy in California who is an avid car audio nut and also does really top-quality speaker enclosures / baffles etc. as he is a cabinet maker by trade. He sells several different lines like the Clarus Audio, Image Dynamics, etc. and has won in a few SQ competitions as well as helping many with their installs. He makes beautiful enclosures and is well-known for extreme craftsmanship in these enclosures. Here is his website:

http://community-2.webtv.net/MarvsPlace/MarvsPlace/

Since I live in Texas I will not be going to CA to install; I will do it at home. The only part that concerns me is the speaker depth since with the baffles it will be real close to the plastic panel and I will most likely have to do some work on that to ensure clearance since those ID's supposedly move quite a bit when cranked up and I don't want them hitting anything. I got my RAAMMat and ensolite to deaden the doors properly and then will have to figure out how to get the crossovers set right etc. I have never done any of that before so will be a learning experience.
