I know you wanted an all RE set up. You had to go with Hifonics amps because the RE amp are taking forever, might as well do the same with your comps.

No dude, that's MSRP. The RE set is around $150+shipping and the XXX comps will be ~$400+shipping factory direct. If you have a local RE dealer and can't get them factory direct (or from another on-line dealer), then yes, you are stuck with MSRP prices.

If they take to much longer I am seriously gonna consider it.... I just don't know what else I'd use....

I already have 2 sets of 6.5" Eclipse Point Source, I could use... They are brand new never been hooked up... I was gonna put them in my Sonoma and put the XXX Componets in the Blazer...

Did you ask about the XXX compnents???

I'm sorry but you haven't got a clue, there worth every cent and more.

They will compete happily with other component sets worth 3-4 times there price. Your getting some truly amazing speakers.

Don't take my word for it, this really is a subjective matter. But 9 times out of 10 I'm sure everyone will be believing the 'hype' ;)

According to RE, the RE line also has the XBL^2. Supposed to have pretty good midbass too, with 6-7mm xmax. I'm just waiting to hear some reviews on the overall sound. The tweeter is silk, so I'm hoping it'll sound smooth and not harsh.

Will the XXX's work in factory locations?
I've heard both yes and no.

If not I'm thinking about putting a pair of RE's upfront and a set of XXX woofers in my rear deck. That should sound pretty nice.

Most likely...NO. Unless you got some huge space in your stock locations. That, or unless you are willing to do some cutting.

Im going to have to either buy some kicks or have someone fabricate me some so I can fit the XXXs in my vehicle.

I do not claim to know everything or even close, but I think I have more than a basic clue on most things audio related (cept for porting/venting)...

I wasn't trying to dog on the RE component sets I was responding to yourmomonacid's quote, that the re compnents are like 299 or 399$ a pair and the xxx components are 699$ a pair....

At that price I can not see them selling many....

I'm not saying they won't sell any, I'm sure some Hard Core guys will buy them and I'm not saying they aren't a good product, I have never heard them...

They look nice and I'd love to get my paws on some, but at 699.00 a pair???? I just don't see them beng as popular as the XXX subs...

Also at that price mentioned above, If I really wanted them, I could see my self saving up and getting a pair, but most (NOT ALL, Save the flames) of the people on these forums scour the net to see where they can get everything for the very cheapest price possible..

Everyone hates on JL, not cause they make a bad product, but because they are so pricey.... They are well known in the industry and have been around for well over 10 years... BUT, You can get stuff just as good as JL or better for less.... Thats why I say that... Its all about the :greedy: :greedy: :greedy: ....

Now I have also heard prices like ""The RE set is around $150+shipping and the XXX comps will be ~$400""

Prices like that I can see them selling a bunch.... I want two sets...

But tak on an exta 200 bucks a pair and I don't see it....

At any rate, I'd like a pair to see how good they really are...

I know the specs I read look pretty good... I just wish they'd put the XXX logo on the Cone of the 6.5s...:thumbsup

Acidburn
07-11-2004, 06:11 PM
i think yourmomonacid was referring to MSRP, the XXX (sub) is way more than $400 MSRP, so i think the lower prices would be the ones that you would get ordering from RE directly like we do

mattj
07-11-2004, 06:12 PM
With this said, Im contemplating on not buying the pioneer avic-n1 and just buying an alpine 9835 right now and just wait for the day the XXX comps are available.

The XXX comp mids must be in an enclosure. Throwing them in your door IB will not work......well, it will be way less than ideal and may not yield very good results.

By looking at the specs, just a learned hunch or what???

and no i forgot about askin about the price for the XXX comps:uhoh: , but like i said i should be gettin the comps on thurs and il go ahead and post a review once i get them installed. but basically what they told me for the re comps is that if your gunna run them in your door run 50rms to them, if you cross them over at say 70 then you can give them a bit more like 75rms and thats is also in a kick pod. I know thats kinda off what you guys were talkin about but i wanted to let yall know.

and Acid yeah once i get everthing finished ill let all the phx guys hear it, i cant decide between the XXX or MT, but it shouldnt be long now...

QTS will need to be below 0.4 for IB applications. XXX6.5s are NOT :)

Following your previous reply, i think were speaking on two different terms, your more concerned with price after MSRP, fact is there worth there MSRP, and MORE!! however $400 for the set is increadible for the SQ these speakers will produce.

I would love to see the XXX6.5 mid against a Rainbow Reference mid (MSRP $3000) then tell me there overpriced ;)

No, not good at all. infact it would be a totally silly idea. you have 2 XXX12s, no need for XXX6.5s is there :waycrazy: ?

XXXs are for small enclosures/kickpods.

We wont have the RE or XXX component sets ready to ship until March. The RE series components (6.5" mid and 20mm tweeter) will be $149 a set and the XXX set (6.5" mid and 25mm tweeter) will be $399 a set.

The RE set has XBl (like the XXX subs do) and has 7mm of Xmax. The XXX set also uses XBl and has 13mm of Xmax (more than many subs).

They should put them on preorder, take orders and charge people months before they come out. Defects will arise, but they will be dismissed as 'a handful of isolated issues, no big problem'. Hundreds of failed drivers later, they will re-tool them and come out with a whole new line. The cycle will start over :)

Well I e-mail them again last night...

Today I was over at Bladeice.com and saw this...



RE comps are flying out the doors...
XXX comps are still waiting for a couple of tooled pieces (original tooling problems out of spec).

RE vs XXX comps...
RE 7mm of Xmax, XXX 12+mm
RE high qts for drop in applications, XXX low qts for enclosed applications
RE lower power (50 W) XXX higher power (100W)
Both use XBl in the mid for flat Bl/high linearity
Only slight differences on the tweeters between the two... nothing major
RE no inductance/Faraday rings, XXX lots of copper rings
RE stamped, XXX cast
RE 1" VC, XXX 1.5" VC
RE fits in small places, XXX forget about it... its huge.

We are pushing most people to the RE sets as they are the easiest to work with. If you cant do an enclosure... dont think about the XXX. Even with the 12+mm of Xmax, you will have anemic bass/midbass due to the low qts/qtc in large spaces. With an enclosure behind it... watch out... they really pound (while keeping the mid band sounding glorious).

The whole point of "money talks" is that everything (mostly) has a price. If you wanted it bad enough, it could be yours. Or you can wait till after CES 2005 to have one if plans stay on track.

Now I have also heard prices like ""The RE set is around $150+shipping and the XXX comps will be ~$400""

Prices like that I can see them selling a bunch.... I want two sets...

But tak on an exta 200 bucks a pair and I don't see it....




I agree man, 600 for something no one has even heard yet would be pretty wacko. :waycrazy:

[QUOTE]I'm sorry but you haven't got a clue, there worth every cent and more.

Sounds like someone has a severe case of Label-queenitis.


They will compete happily with other component sets worth 3-4 times there price. Your getting some truly amazing speakers.

You or anyone you know haven't even heard them so how do you know this.?? Products need to be heard and tested before such things can be said. Come on now.


Don't take my word for it, this really is a subjective matter. But 9 times out of 10 I'm sure everyone will be believing the 'hype' .

Alot of people buy based on hype and get disappointed on a regular basis. Listen before you buy people.

Thats cool man I guess the label queen thing was uncalled for but to say it sounds better than comps costing 3 or 4 times as much is a little extreme in my opinion.

He did say that it was a(his in particular) subjective opinion though.

Exactly, that is YOUR OPINION. Just like he stated HIS OPINION. So, just because your opinion doesn't agree with his opinion, that makes his opinion less valid than yours?!?!

I don't doubt that now that I have that information. But just because someone is a dealer doesn't necessarily make their word gospel. I'm sure he does know a hell of alot but an opinion is an opinion no matter who it comes from. All in all I didn't mean any hostility.

OK Time for the Next update from RE on the XXX Coomponents...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~
We are still waiting on several parts for the XXX set. We are probably looking at 8 weeks still before they are ready.
The XXX will work well in .08 to .15 sealed or .125-.4 cuft ported (depending on tuning).
The XXX logo will not be on the cone, althogh the whole driver looks like a mini version of our larger XXX subs.
We will not have the XXX mids available separately at first, but will a few months after.
We do not have a waiting list, but will have approx 1000 sets ready to ship when they are released.

Thanks,
RE Sales
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

So it looks like another 8 weeks of waiting for the next postpone.... I'll post the next update I get...

If anyone else has anything solid, post it here...

yes the guy i talked to on the phone said that in a stock compartment for a door speaker the RE and the XXX will be about the same but if you put the xxx in say a kick pannel than it will give you some killer mids however the Re series will play vocals like a mad man. as was i told when i called

Hmm....

So u think XXXComps for Midbass and REComps for vocal??

Or just stick with XXXComps, 1-2 in the door, 1 in kick panel each side?

Wish i can hear one already!
