Any recommendations for good 6.5" coaxials that can handle 100+ Wrms and stay loud and clear?

With 100w RMS, why not go components?

Probably on a budget, and generally, Coaxial is cheaper than component...

also might not have cutouts for comps...remember, not *everybody* does :)

I've had good luck with Boston coaxials, they've worked fine for me. I'm sending them around 125W per side.

either the pioneer rev series TSD-170r (rev is their top of the line series) or diamond m36i's. both are great speakers

Who needs cutouts? Get a metal strip and sit the tweet over the mid ;)

in which case, why are you getting components? :D

Because God kills a kitten everytime someone installs a pair of coaxials?

theres an easy compromise- get a pair of covertibles- diamond cm3's, cdt braxials, soundstream CONV series..... crossover is built into the driver

if you are going for a decent set of components, look into the focal 165a.

No components, just coaxes.

I like Boston Acoustics stuff a lot, but I don't know about the performance or reliabilty of any of their newer speakers.

What about Image Dynamics? I hear Rainbow has some good speakers, too.

Anyone else?

BA stuff, including the FX and RM line, are pretty good for coaxials...I would recommend them.
