Dont under estimate the pioneer PRS's.They are some of the most renowned comp sets on SQ forums and so on.They compare to many HIGH END set 3x the price.They will pawn many sets in thier price range IMO

nice set but you can build you own active set that will out do these.given you select good drivers.Tweeter on this set is absolute *** though.

If you don't want to spend something absurd such as $3000... I think the BEST speakers of all are Focal 165 KRX2 Component Speakers.

I heard them in a show room and they were the most AMAZING speakers I have ever heard. I didn't even know so much sound could come from a set of dinky 6.5" woofers and a set of Puny 1" Tweeters.

They are a great improvement over my 165 Focal K2P speakers which I already thought were pretty effin good.

To the OP. I think you set a budget and then go to a few car audio competitions and listen to the installs and find out what you like.

Some people love a crisp, detailed tweeter...some prefer a more neutral (relaxed) sound.

It's easy to list name brands...but in the end you need to actually hear the speaker before you buy...OR...it could end up being a very expensive mistake.

Personally, I love Focals....BUT...the tweeter is so detailed that it would drive me nuts...must be getting old. :crying:

The new TN53K in the KRX2 K2 Power series are much easier on the ears than the TN52's in my current K2P's... go check em out!

Don't know how you got them that cheap, but great set for the money. I heard the A/D/S speakers back in '89-'92, and they were supurb. They did nothing wrong. Great sound. But.....Directed bought them out, and I have yet to hear the new generation. I can only assume they still sound as they used to.

I like the DD componets...though I've ran many different high end componets in the past ...The DD 6.5's in my Jeeps dash have such a strong mid bass it sounds like I'm running mini subs up front....the highs are crisp and clear with a very smooth musical transparency that is pretty much untouchable in their price range...I'd compare them to some of the high end componet sets that I've ran in the past such as Boston Pro's....German made MB Quarts...Pioneer Rev's and many more....

the JBL 660gti components are the best money can buy at any price...period
they own the award for the "Best In Car Speaker System"

I got two pairs in my front stage on 1600w rms (400w rms x 4) :D

Ive heard some good stuff about the DDs. How do they compare to the XXX comps? Im running them now, but may switch to the DDs in the future. Also, whats the mounting depth on the mids? Nearly 4 inches is KILLING me on mine :(

if you want loud skimp on the pro60's.

i had 1 set, then when i destroyed that set i got another set. why didnt i learn? my morel tempo 6's, although having a garbage cone on the mid, were exponentially louder than both sets of pro 60's ive ran. pro60's sound good but if you try to get them loud they like to stink. no distortion, just pure stink.

then again my definition of loud might be different than yours. i can say this though, off 250 dynamic watts, ive never heard a louder speaker than those morels. too bad the cones cracked and tore the first day off not anywhere near that power.

i really wish i would of picked up the ID comps right now...

$600 is about my budget for the front stage as well. Can't justify 3k on speakers.......however, $3k for a supercharger....that I can justify :D
