Yup....and unless you want to **** around building a passive crossover, you'd need to actively cross them, which means you'd need 4 channels of amplification

I would listen to both if you could , considering you haven't heard the RE's, hell not many people have and the crossovers on the RE look very high end actually :laugh:

Kidding aside either set would suit rap or rock the same properly installed, my Rainbows have no problem playing rap- dunno what you are saying..???

i personally like the tweets that come with them, there perfect for me cause i dont like stuff that sounds to harsh, but once again its personal preferance

Rainbows are worth every penny ,period- 20+ yrs in R&D ensures good sound quality drivers-I cut off my subs for member EbonyIsland and crossed over my fronts off my HU to 63hz, 80hz and 100hz during an audition and he liked the midbass response so much he went on his own and bought the set- I actually listen to my set all the time w/ out the subs when I listen to very accoustical music-I truly enjoy them

how do the Rainbows compare to Boston Acoustics? I love how natural sounding the Bostons are.

Check out the aura mr62 and mr52's I have for sale in the for sale section. As stated many times I will put them up against ANYTHING in the $400-$500 bracket. They simply are an amazing set. I sell them for $165 shipped for the mr62 and $155 shipped for the mr52. This is $55 cheaper than dealer cost was on them. They no longer make them so I bought allot in bulk and am selling them off for dirt to reclaim my $$$.

Retail was $449.99 and $399.99.

Check the for sale section or email me at desertheatracing@yahoo.com Also I have reviews of them available!

Aura is pretty famous in the scene especially if you were around back in 98-00. The pioneered the neo magnet structure and sound simply awsome. So far I have sold allot of the old sets and the most impressive record is that I am 4 for 4 now with locals bying on the spot after hearing them, three of wich replaceing other high end sets with these. This is no sales pitch, check out the post. Nothing but praise.
