I am considering a set of these DIamond Audio Hex components. I was just wondering what some thoughts are on them. I am used to MB Quart and am wanting to make a change. Anyone run a set of these?

Very nice SQ components. You might also try looking into some Boston Acoustics Pro components, just as good and or better then the HEX's.

hex they are okay - their tweeter is too soft/fluffy for my taste, actually the ower of these is pissed b/c my tweeter sounds a lil more strong

If you are used to MB Quarts the hex's might be a little too laid back for you... I'd really suggest you listen to them before you buy them.

they sound great but are kind of the opposite side of the spectrum from quarts.

what do you think about the MB Quart Premiums they have now?

Do you think the Boston Pros would fit me better. I kinda wanna get something different than MB Quart this time.

I say find places to listen to as many different models as you can. Speakers are too personal for us to tell you what you would like.

Sorry I can't help more, I just don't want to tell you something and have you hate it.

that is the ****** part, there isn't anywhere around me close that carries either Diamond or Boston, or even MB Quart.

maybe its time for a day trip or even a weekend stay at your closest large city.
What brands can you listen to? maybe we can try and compare different speakers to the ones you are able to listen to.

Heres my 2 cents.I took the boston pros over the mb quart premiums.IMO the quarts are too harsh and the bostons can get just as loud with enough power.Diamond audio hex series is not a bad choice either.I was looking long and hard at those 3 sets and took boston pros over them all.Look for the new pro series to come out in march.
