what do you guys recommend?
ive been doing my research..
only have 75w rms to work with atm as well.
been looking around...but it seems everyone goes over the RMS anyway..

ive been looking at the pioneer ts-d720c, and id ctx65cs and a few others....
even kicker and the phoenix gold...

i have 6x8s atm and want to upgrade... my current 6x8 get loud

do any of these get loud as well?

would they work well off 75 w rms? how loud would they get compared to what i have now?

you need a more efficient speaker to run on 75rms so look at 50-75 rms drivers to get the most from them. the opti line is good so are pg or mbquart f or d series

any recommendations other than those?
how are the kicker 650.2 (not so great id imagine?) they handle 75w rms though
or do the pioneer ts-d720c get loud?

01-06-2010, 06:43 AM

01-06-2010, 07:00 AM
im just looking for better performance than my 6x8s without paying a fortune and using the 75 w rms i have for now...
thats all

01-06-2010, 01:18 PM
The ID's are rated at 100 watts rms and very efficient on power, 75 watts rms power will get them loud.

01-06-2010, 10:01 PM
thats good to know!
anyone run them with 75?
like know that for a fact?

01-11-2010, 01:10 AM
i have the same thread- still kinda lost on what to get...

Try Boston acoustic Sr65 comp. they are rated at 85 rms I have them in my 4runner and they sound great.I would stay away from the kickers I listened to several setup with them when I was looking for my front speakers. They just didn't sound clean to me. This is just my opinion.
