I'm currently running Rainbow SLX-265 Deluxe Components active for the front stage. Ive been considering an upgrade to the Audison Voce components, just wondering if anyone has had experience with both sets of speakers and can give me their opinion!

Those Legatias are so tempting also, ive heard the tweeters but thats it, they were very impressive. Would you run Hybrid over Audison or Rainbow?

I didn't have them active but I ran the Rainbows for a couple months, didn't like them much at all. I was powering the same way I'm powering my Hertz and love them

The cf is the lowest line, I would suggest looking into the FB pro or the Af series lol Those are the ones that will match up to the sets you are comparing. I have the AF 1c tw. That is one hell of a tweeter!

I am a dealer for PHD as well just an FYI.

They are huge in Europe and Asia. They get titles all over the world with their speakers.

You could look into Linear Power / Blues Car Audio ...

Just a suggestion

Another very good choice! I heard this gentleman's truck at finals and let me tell you, it is something else!

I wish i could hear any of their products in person! My local shop only deals Hertz/Audison.

I would love to let you hear my car =P I honestly bet that sometime in the near future I will be around your area for a MECA show. If you are not in too much of a hurry to purchase a set.

That would be great! I'm not in a hurry at all, I've just had the idea of an upgrade on my mind. Being in college also dictates where most of my money goes to anyway, haha. Do any of you run Audison's Bit processors?

In my class. stock class, I can't run any processing aside from the head unit. I would suggest looking into the Mosconi 6to8 or the Arc Audio PS8 rather than the BitOne.

I have the bit ten D now and as of now its perfect for me, i dont plan on going 3-way active anytime soon haha so the bitone isnt for me. i would have probably gotten the PS8 through if it was out when i bought the bit ten. In a couple weeks im finally ditching my HU and going optical into the processor, hello one D/A conversion!

I run in Moddex class, but my new dash 5.25" component setup will be passive with my headunit cutting the bottom end around 70 htz and my doors (6.5" midbass driver in each door) running fullrange with the headunit cutting the bottom end around 40 htz ... Everything with about 150 watts per channel
