Hi friends,

I am looking for a good overall sound quality speakers, with a special emphasis on 'deep' midbass. Music regularly played will be rap, electronic & rock.

Among the ones readily available in my country, I have shortlisted following based on my research:

JBL - MS 62C
Focal Performance PS 165 V30
Infinity - Kappa 60.11cs
Alpine - SPR-60C
Polk Audio MM6501 or DXI6500

Please suggest one out of these. And, in case if there is some other brand (Image Dynamics, Hertz etc) that according to you has really significant (not minor) improvement compared to these in midbass department, I am willing to import as well.

Thanks

The jbl ms62 series is really a impressive set, one of the best selling component sets available right now compares with 500$ sets apparently

your quote edited because couldn't post due to URLs

Thanks. XXX look good but, given their depth, I doubt it will fit in the car (2012 Elantra). I am confirming that on hyundai forums.

However, in case if I were to only choose from the above mentioned ones in post #1 (http://www.caraudio.com/forums/usertag.php?do=list&action=hash&hash=1) (now including Polks as well), which would you recommend?

So, basically it is between JBL & Focals.

But, I am almost decided on JBLs because I have read at many places that although Focals sound excellent, they tend to have too bright tweeters, which need to be properly adjusted as per their position in car and/or the crossover settings - which I am not sure I will be to achieve properly.

Moreover, I really hate even slightly high treble. I can live with low midbass, but not with bright tweeters.

Thank you for opinions. Liked this forum. Had posted on multiple forums, but got most feedback here. Deleting the advertisements post is appreciable as well.

haha i have the same preference as you lol I cant stand sibilance with the SSSSS and XXX sounds. It has to be at a good balance, too little looses clarity, too much is ear piercing and unbearable. Meanwhile warm midbass is always enjoyable. Anyways from what i've heard at local audio shops the focal components sound a lot brighter and tinny than the regular door speakers model. but if you have to have components, my vote is the JBls.

Mount the tweeters no higher than the sail panels, and don't do A-pillar on-axis tweeters. I've tried several positions and ways of aiming tweeters and the sound cleaned up so much when I put my tweeters on the door panels instead of the A-pillars. This doesn't mean every vehicle must be done this way, but don't just slam the tweeters in somewhere and call it done.

Shame you don't have Morel speakers on your list, they have superior midrange and a really sweet silk tweeter.

Hey Kracked_dude
You should go to a shop & have a listen for yourself.
I have listen to the JBL's which sound nice for the price.
They need some EQing to get them to open up.
The tweeter is warm, but kind of flat sounding.
The upper midrange in the mid wasn't harsh, but kind of dull sounding.
The lower midbass was strong.
How much power do you have?
Don't forget to deaden your doors.
Placement, aiming, tuning, will have you happy in the end

I like the JBLs but my only complaint is there metal top tweeter is a little to bright for me, but most metal top tweeters are too bright for me

As with most cars now-a-days, my car already has tweeter placement triangles. I would not prefer to modify my car place them anywhere else.
Thanks for the opinion though.

There is no way to listen any of these speakers live here where I live.
As long as lower mid bass is strong, & tweeters aren't harsh, I am absolutely fine... esp with many excellent reviews all over the web.
Will definitely go for deadening the doors, & I am yet to buy an amp. Thanks for the mini review!

Have you actually heard JBLs? I am asking because I have read at many places that although they have metal top tweeters, but sound ain't harsh.

Oh boy... I was unaware. Now seriously considering them after reading the reviews (of Tempo 6). How do you rate the brightness of the tweeters? And have you heard the JBL MS 62C as well?
It is now between JBL & Morel.

I saw an Infinity set is easy to fit to replace the factory Elantra tweeters and woofers. If your Elantra has the standard high door location for tweeters you'll want a small tweeter.
