So I am looking to redo my front stage, and I've been all over the place. I want just about everything I see...So far I'm leaning toward the cresendo pwx 6.5 and their fs1 tweets, but I am shexualy arroused when I see an RE xxx mid...I really like big shexy mids....

either way I don't want to spend more than $200 per set, they will be run of a Soundqubed q4-120, which is 120rms at 4 ohms, 170 rms at 2 ohms

I will also be running mdf rings and deadening the doors with about 2 sheets of Deadener per door

I'd say either the JBL MS-62C, they are like $160 on Sonic, or for around $100 there are some Kenwood Excelons I've heard that sound really good.

I've been recommended CDT speakers and Pioneer D series speakers. Both can be had near or below $100/set

I was just tuning a pair of Alpine SPS-610C components not 5 minutes ago. I like them a lot. They only have 45W on them, but they are loud and sound really good.They are rated for 80W RMS. I think they were only 70 bucks on Amazon. Have another pair on the way.

Best bang for the buck always goes to raw drivers.

The Madisound Speaker Store (http://www.madisoundspeakerstore.com/silver-flute-woofers-6-7/silver-flute-w17rc38-04-ohm-6-1/2-wool-cone/)

You'll need an amp, headunit, or crossover that's active capable. It's well worth it IMO.

They're definitely worth going to. I'm not sure about building your own speaker, but it's worth asking.

I prefer the LPG 25NFA to the Vifa, but both are excellent tweeters.

I personally love the Vifas, but only if you can mount them on axis. I need to swap to something with better off-axis response due to my current tweeter location.

Tweeters are a little personal or subjective, but I think the NVX XSPTW (same as SB29RDCN-C000-4 The Madisound Speaker Store (http://www.madisoundspeakerstore.com/ring-radiator-tweeters/sb-acoustics-sb29rdcn-c000-4-neo-magnet-ring-dome-tweeter/) ) are in another league of tweeters compared to the Vifa XT25. Ether way you getting big bang for the buck, and with the flutes you are still under $200. The NVX NVX XSPTW 29mm X-Series Soft Dome Tweeters - Sonic Electronix (http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_68822_NVX-XSPTW.html) come with pods and cleaner install rings and now they even cheaper than madison's version.

The Vifa ring radiator is an excellent tweeter but MUST be mounted on-axis or as close as possible, otherwise output drops off tremendously...
