View Full Version : Need convertable components!!

10-16-2012, 12:07 AM
Hey all, I'm looking for some good convertable mounting component 6.5s for my nova. I've been looking all over the place and I get so many opinions but here is what I'm looking at:

HAT Imagine I61-2V2
CDT EU-61cv
JL? IDs? Arcs?

I would love to run a total American designed/made system. Front stage only, most likely powered by a Zed Leviathan III (front two channels) with a pair of Dayton 10's anchoring the bass off the other 4 channels bridged. Opinions, reviews, any help would be great. I prefer a smooth, uncolored sound with high SQ, this system wont be designed for killing things...I want good clear audio, tight midbass, and clear vocals...dont want to go crazy on cost if possible...

Convertable as in component or coaxial? Why not just choose one or the other?

Im running a set of HAT imagines right now, as components. They sound good for the price. When set up as a component the tweeters can be a lil bright at times. I think they were more designed to be used as a coaxial.

I need a co-ax setup but would like the flexibility of the external xover, plus I haven't found many co-ax that can handle the juice. That's why I was leaning towards a cv system. I am trying to keep my install as "original" as possible and the individual tweet makes it tough...may end up going that route of I can't find what I like.

If those are the same HAT imagine speakers im thinking of, they dont come with a external xover.

Yeah, I saw that on the Imagines but they are getting some killer reviews. I may have to give in and go full component...maybe the CDT Hd-62 or the HAT Unity U61-2 6.5. Any thing else worth a look? I usually run active comps in my other cars and been really into the Seas stuff but id like to stay american if I can and keep it simple not going active.
