View Full Version : 6.5 comp thoughts

03-31-2010, 02:12 AM
I have a Soundstream Ruby 2ch doing 75w x2 to be put into my Mercedes E350 with the Harmon Kardon 7.1 system. Leaving the center and 2 rear surrounds stock off the stock amp, and want something that can keep up with subwoofer. I did some research, and of these they all fit my price range. I listen to almost 90% heavy metal, maybe some rap for shits and giggles. Here's what I came up with:

Rainbow SLX 265 Deluxe
Morel Tempo 6

Anything that might be better in that 180-250 price range, please share your thoughts.

The Ruby is in the wifes car which I will be yanking out to re-do her system soon. I could sell it and get something else, another 2ch under $200, buts its been a good amp so far. Pushes some low end CDT's atm.

personally i like the helix HXS... transparent, pretty loud too..
these SS ref comps are hard to beat @ 200..

Rainbow and Morel both make outstanding comp set, can not wrong with either.

If you can find a Boston PRO60SE set online for $200, go with those. I listen to mostly rock and metal, also, and they cranked it out pretty good when I had a set.
