Hey Guys,


I'm building a system, and need some expert input... my knowledge lacks on this subject.

I'm building a system, and I'm looking for some sq. Loudness is not a main objective, but a little hiphop on Friday nights will happen. Basically, just looking for a good all-around set.

My set-up so far consists of:

Amp: Elemental Designs Nine.4 (Seems to be well under-rated) http://www.edesignaudio.com/product_info.php?cPath=1_22&products_id=46


Sub: Elemental Designs 13ov.2 dual 4 to go in sealed at 2 ohms (I think). http://www.edesignaudio.com/product_info.php?products_id=35

For components I'm looking at:

1. jl xr comps

2. The Image Dynamics CTX65CS

3. Elemental Designs 9.65i
http://www.edesignaudio.com/product_info.php?cPath=1_23_127&products_id=617


I'm not fond of harsh highs, or any harshness in general. So I'm thinking that will cut out the jl's, as they have an alum. tweet?

I hear the 9.65i's have great midbass presence. Same with the ID's. I think I'm leaning towards either the 9.65i's or ID's. Any other suggestions would be good also.

My price point is sub 200. The 9.65i's are 225, which is more than I want to spend unless they are significantly better than the ID's.

Any suggestions?

Thanks!
