Ok guys ordered a set for my friends car, if their good this is what he will be going with, should have them in tomorrow so ill start out with my impression outta the box.
So i get the box from fedex ordered from VMinovations off ebay for $84 shipped, nice price? so box gets here in very good condition so i open her up. everything is packaged nicely, looked everything over and i am impressed! this is the 400w 6.5 set, they make a step up thats the OPTI6C but desided to go with these, the difference is these come with silver aluminum cone and silk domes, compared to black cones and titaniums. Everything seems built well and dam are these crossovers big! also have a db switch for +3, 0, -3. Also came with the usual mounting hardware with wire, grills, and tweeter cups.

sorry no pics of install :/ maybe later after fiberglass work.

MY RATINGS=

Appearance=5/5- came new in box, sleek look and very good looking imo
Performance/loudness=4/5- they perform well off the 60+ rms i gave them and never got hot or anything but i do feel that on this amp they seem to "top" out when it comes to loudness,it may be the amp itself but well see.
Sound Quality= 4.5/5- mids are excellent have good vocals and midbass, running these mainly for the vocals, tweets are nice and soft but in the upper volumes can get a tad harsh but no distortion at all even when his volume was cranked 35/35 on HU
Price=5/5- for under $100 i would have to say their an incredible deal id rate them better than the PG components and comparable if not better than crescendos.

Overall great speaker for the money and love them, nothing to be worried youll get quality components even with the lanzar name on them, these are legit. Id recommend them and probably wont run any other budget 6.5s for a long while. Waiting on getting the amp in (Soundstream rubicon 4.600) 100rms per channel should do them good and sound very happy, hopefully more power will help the topping out of the loudness. this amp will also allow better tuning than what their on now so should be even more clear up top, plus running active will hopefully soften the tweeters up at high volume with some fine tuning.

the black ones? they are nice as f@ck, not alot of sound differences between the 2 I used both, the 6c took about 300rms per side no problem, they are some mean comps

The titanium tweeters are very nice. You can always turn the treble down if they are too bright. I like me some sharp bright tweets.

Coulda got them even cheaper. Vminnovations has a coupon code out. vmsave10 saves you 10 percent. 75 bucks for the set. I may have to pick myself up a set

Looks good.
I wonder what the 6.5c's do.
I'm liking putting power to the components. My kickers sound much better with more clean watts. I run em up to 35/50 on my HU with no high pass on 150 watts.
If I cross over, I can push it.

60 watts doesn't do em justice.

I have the 5.1 comps in my buick. Im in the middle of the install the left front door only is done. The tweeter in that door only lasted 1 week, I swapped the other one in and its been fine for a week or so. I found a replacement set of the TCS tweeters at sonicelectronix for $22 shipped. Whats funny is they are rated at 200 watts instead of 100 watts and the coloring on the Lanzar logo is different. I hope they are sonically the same.
I have a 2nd set of the comps on the way for $64 shipped.
Great sounding loud comps I just hope they are more durable than I have experienced thus far.
