Lookin at 6.5 comps. Onlinecarstereo has boston sx60 for 140 and jl audio c2650 for right around the same. The next step up on both would be 200. Wanna keep it at under 200 but if it was worth it I'd get em. So, jls or bostons? Or feel free to suggest others

boston x2 but thats our personal opinion.
do you have any real installed or display models at the store to listen to?

i ve heard bostons for few minutesin someone's car and thats all i needed to say tha i want those speakers really bad(they were also prety expensive around 600 dollars lol

jl has a relaly soft sound and lots of bass. just like their subs
boston is much better at making the rest of the sound crisp and clean and bright

I've heard bostons are awesome. Never in person tho. The jls I have but I obviously I want vocals to be clear and crisp. I have subs for the bass. Lol

I owned the bostons sx60's in my passat, they were amazing... the clarity and the crispness from them made music completely different. For the price they are amazing. I have a pair of MB Quart Premiums now and they get louder then the bostons but lack the clarity that bostons had. I have only heard the jls in a local shop and wasnt satisfied for the price. I was powering them with a rockford t400-4 same as i am now with the mb quarts.

give them around 60 watts rms clean and they will sound crisp and clean and loud. I wish i woulda kept them instead of getting these mb quarts...

Yes, everything from Boston is good. You really can't go wrong with their gear.
