My brother-in-law and I installed a set in his jeep. Non deadened doors and a .5" MDF plate to convert from a 6x9 to a 6.5" and they sound MUCH better then stock. He only has like 20w RMS from a factory amp though.

Wouldn't the RSD65cs' be a decent option for the OP? I think dealercost still has them for $60...

I believe he meant they are on sale for 60 bucks at Dealercostcaraudio.com, not 60 bucks actual dealer cost.

Edit, beat me to it lol.

I can sell you a set of Powerbass 3XL mids with Xovers for $45 + shipping. Then all you'd need is tweeters. I can actually pick up some tweeters at madisounds (local) before I send them out for a little extra.

I have a set of them and they are worth the price to me and I compared them to my kicker rs6 components and I can't tell no difference in sound quality. They sounded great as my kickers but I upgraded to mb quart discus components with the wide sphere tweeters and they sounded way better than the hifonics and kickers with less power running to them

never heard hiphonics personally. but i heard the phoenix gold.

why dont you go to a local store and listen to the speakers you like. pick the best ones you like and i can find you colsest matching for the price and sound you want.

i work at the car audio store and what i do on my downtime is hang around in the demo rooms and listen to different speakers all the time to hear the sound.
so once you go to a store and bring a model of the speakers you like to the forum i help you find matching sound for 60 bucks.

because in reality all 3 speakers sound about same to different people.
thats why i asked if you like bass, mids or crisp highs

I have yet to find a loal store that carried PG or Phonics...


OP, Get the PG. I had a pair of coaxials in my S-10 and they did pretty well off stock deck. I imagine if you get those comp, and nice simple amp they would sound very clean as well. Remember, your only putting up $60, deal with what you got eh...

So after looking on many sites I havent really seen anything in my price range other then these Zeus ZXi6.5C...

Ok??? so when I asked and got nothing but a link with a item number I had to look at something...

no one said the PG is better for one reason or another, this is why I asked b/c I dont know what to look for in a set of comps.

I don't know if the search function is working on the forum yet, but you can try it. Search for Phoenix Gold RSD65cs. They were a forum boner not long ago, so there should be lots of info. Most people say they're great for the price. Some complained about the tweets being a little harsh, but that's about it...

60 bucks for comps? wouldn't even bother. save a little more and pick you up some of these. for the money, these speakers are hard to beat. sound a lot better than those pg rsd's everybody is cheering for...

Most of the harshness actually comes from the woofer, IME.

Maybe I got it mixed up. Seems like I remember some people using the mids and disregarding the tweets completely...

I do recall some conflicting posts on this matter. Some peeps described the tweeter as "airy". I'm not a big fan of either driver in this set. I accidentally blew one of my LPG26NAFM tweets and tried going back to the RSD tweets... woo doggy, they sounded like poo after getting used to the LPG tweets.

If it were my money, I'd try the HAT Imagine set. There's only a small amount of info/hands-on testing available at the moment, but they already seem like one of the best buys in the $200 range.

If the OP would more than triple his budget, which buying the HAT components would require, he'd be opening up a ton of great options... :)

Yeah I can't go and drop 2 bills on comps. I might be able to spend a bit more but if I say $75 then best speakers for me will be $90 if I say $90 I'll need to get the set for $125 lol you see where I'm going with this... I thank you all for the info and more is welcome I'm going to spend some time researching diff sets I just need a jumping off point and some feedback on ones I find.

Thanks again guys I'm sure I'll be posting an item number so you can let me know if they are good or junk

I haven't seen any Lanzar equipment in person for a very, very long time. I've heard that their Opti line is the only equipment they make that's worth messing with these days...

Ok i think its gone on to long... Im ready to pull the trigger... what set (See links below) See like i stated b4 i dont really know what to look for in a good comp. set so here are the three im left with

Thank you all for your input

2500 watt substage and you won't spend one bill on components? lol

RSD's are the only thing for $60 I would mess with. I'm kinda tempted to buy a set at that price even though I got my CDT's for $80 and I haven't even installed them yet.

For some reason, this guy isn't interested in the RSDs. Based on the 3 sets he listed in his last post, I'm going to say it's because he doesn't think they look cool...

lol, honestly, I was blown away when I heard some RSDs. The tweets aren't the greatest, as my buddy who was running them had one of them blow, but the mids have a lot of output.

There are numerous testimonials from people on this site who have used the RSDs. I have heard nothing about those, and honestly, I would never run Hifonics or Lanzar speakers.

- Lanzar has been a flea market brand for years. They're on the same level as Boss, Power Acoustik and Pyle. I've heard a handful of people say decent things about their Opti line, but the reputation of their other equipment would keep me from giving the Opti stuff a try.

- There's something about Soundstream that rubs me the wrong way. Maybe it's the gaudy spider that they splash across everything, or maybe it's the gimmicky nature of some of their products. Whatever it is, it screams "Don't Buy Me" in my ear.

- Hifonics is, first and foremost, an amplifier company. I've used and installed many of their amplifiers over the years and only the MB Quart Discus series has impressed me. If their amps regularly disappoint me, I assume their speakers lines will **** too.

THANK YOU.... thats the ***** I want to know. for real

I uderstand the lanzar thing I thought the same thing until I heard the optis... Only reason I even looked at the SoundStream or the Hifonics is B/C the amps. For the most part the amp put out great power for a good price so I thought the comps. could do the same

Again guys thank you

I put the Hifonics set in my girlfriends car ($60 shipped) and they are really pretty good for the money. If it was for my own car and that's all I had to spend and those were my choices, I'd try the Lanzar. They do make a lot of low end crap, but anything opti I've tried has been decent.
I mean honestly if you're only spending $60 and you get something halfway decent that you like, I think you did pretty well.
