Go listen to them and decide.

I abhore the diamond Hexs, along with MB quarts. Some people love them, I rather stick an ice pick in my head.

Others to look at are CDT ES and DLS Iridiums (or even UR6s).

I would either look at the DLS Iridiums or Dynaudio lines.

My DA hex s600 were ok...i expected a lot more from them. The mid is kind of shallow...which is good for install...but i think that's what made it lack in mid-bass a little. Overall they were great for the $230 shipped i got them for...but they left a little to be desired. peace

i also have Hex S600S. they are okay. i bought these speakers mainly because of their <2.25" depth. but i certainly had expected more from a set of $320 speakers...

I ran the HEXs for awhile. Then replaced with PG Elites, then a bit later Rainbow ProVanadiums and didnt look back. Like people above posted, they had some lacking parts from a $600 set of speakers. Obviously the prices posted above werent from legit sellers.
