well i called RE and they said that the xxx comps will be out by the end of november or about 2 weeks. and i have convinced my GF to get me a set. ya see i was born on DEC 23 2 days before xmas. usually this sux horribly but she was telling me "i have no idea what to get you for your b-day and xmas" so i was like :idea: how about a bday/xmas presant you can get me a set of xxx comps. she was like well only if thats ok with you. SCORE!!!!!! :present: so who else is getting em? i hope they dont run out. :thumbsdo:

Yea i got that all figured out. im doing a little enclosure in each door pannel. each one will hold 2 speakers and sets of tweets. then there will be 1 pot in each pannel. all i gotta do is figure out the specifics

so true they did tell me about 3 weeks to be releised about 3 months ago. so acatuall by their standards we may not see them for 6 months. but im hoping they are going by normal people standards. otherwise ill be depressed :crap:

I'd be down for the mids, but I don't need the whole comp set, so screw it. Extremis here I come........ :thumbupw:

Not interested....at least until there's some actual feedback ansd short/long term use- I dont like jumping into things I know nothing about....

:) I was also looking at the extremis mids... They look sweet. I'll have to make kicks though (for my comps), and that + the money keeps me from them atm :(

very interested in the XXX comps, just wish they had the logo on it.

I got the space to give em an enclosure.

And usually everything from RE is released WAY after they state.

Now we wait for the Amps.......

Keep in mind that at CES they measured the Seas Excels and the RE XXX mids on the Kippel Measurement System, and the XXX mids actually measured better in almost every category. And if you know how highly praised the Excel mids are, then that says something.....

Granted that doesn't say anything about longevity, but coming from RE I see no reason why they wouldn't be quality built.

Yup, I remeber reading on that....

Still, what they brought to CES was a protype set, as do most companies new offerings are at CES- It would be ideal also to see what the production version turns out to be

Also as good as this XBL2 mid may be, its only one half of the component equation- the tweeter has to be up to par, and as far as the RE comps tweet goes, it left alot to be desired :sick:

I would rather wait and get some user feedback before jumping on something totally new like this- I dont have the $$$ to be a guinea pig, as I typically audition everything I put into my vehicles

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but don't the XXX and RE comps use the same or very close to the same tweeters?

lol- I set myself up for that one ....

If its the same tweet as the RE set, I see alot of DIY and people running active copping those mids

yea i gotta call tomorrow morning to get the exact price. i guess only 1 guy there knows all that info and everytime i call hes not there. i also gotta see how much space and any tuning reccomendations that they have. im hoping to have all the door pannels and 2 sets of the comps all set up and ready by the end of january. so ill have to let everone know how they sound then.
