I know, another one of these threads. My buddy is looking for some 6x9's for around $150. We have located some Polk Momo's for $140, Some Alpine Type-R's for $150, and I believe DD 6x9's are $150 as well. Also, we shot Sonic an offer on these, they said they would take $180 for them - Massive Audio CK 6.9 III (CK69III) 6x9 2-Way CK Stage III Speakers (http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_34959_Massive-Audio-CK-6.9-III.html)

What do you guys think we should get? Component or coaxial, it doesn't matter. What does matter is that they are silk dome tweeters. And it's less than $200 per pair.

I'm not familiar with massive audio at all, but I really love the polk mm line for the price. Good midrange, and the tweets are nice and smooth and detailed without an overly warm sound imo. Lack a little bit in the midbass, 80-130hz, but I dont feel you'll miss too much

Yeah, I liked the Dxi's I heard a lot. More so than the previous-generation type-r's I heard.

The mm691s are definitely noticeably better.
I'm thinking if I ever come across the cash, I may just swap out my kappas for them. I like alot about the kappas but "harshness" is getting to me finally after almost a year of running them.

I doubt those are better than the Polk's, even if they are Eclipse...

I have Infinity Reference 6X9's in the rear deck running off HU power (rear fill) and I love them. Silk dome tweeters. I couldn't get to Inifinity's web site to see if their current line is any different (mine are probably 6 yrs old) but they were under $100 back then.

All post-millenium Infinity speakers are GARBAGE. The top end is harsh and unrefined, the bottom end is non-existent. I've tried the Reference and the Kappas. They all **** ***!
