CDT Audio cl-5x I have 2 pair and they sound great to bad I can't use them.
you can get some power acoustic 5.25s for around that price from www.thezeb.com OR from monte_carlo87 here on the forums.
im not too sure about the amount of midbass\sq tho.

I have a pair of clarion srx1383's if you are interested. They are lightly used and sound great e-mail me for pictures. Sptzmadgme21@yahoo.com

I'm going to agree with (Gasp!) Profilepower. I absolutely loved the JVC Bronzies attached to my brother's Pioneer DEH 1400. Midbass was awesome, and the mids and highs were just incredible for a $45 set of coaxials on HU power. You do have to do some EQing, if your HU has a 3 band EQ, I would recommend these speakers over most anything I've heard at BB or CC.

I have some pioneer's I'll sell you for 20+shipping, they were like 60 at best buy. i'd have to look what hte model is.

Alpine type S speakers are by far the best coaxials for the $$$

please kids if your 5s arent at least 70rms and go downto 40hz dont waste space here.....is the other person taking about the 5 1/4 bronze jvcs?????
about a 3 band 3eq..thats funny....thats not a eq really....but almost
if ya not putting over 60rms to any 5s.go get a real system..ok

What? What does wattage ratings have to do with this? High power handling is NOTHING when you are attaching speakers to a HU. It's all about efficiency and quality. My bro's truck has the 6.5" set mounted in stock location. That's where my judgement comes from.
What's so bad about a 3 band EQ? Take a cheap Pioneer HU, put the mid +2, and set the loud feature on to it's lowest setting . Now listen to the JVCs sing. It's all in the install. My $200 retail Alphasonik 4 band EQ can't save my $70 Sonys, so I don't see what's wrong with using a HU to tweak some $45 speakers for a desired effect.
hiloracerboy84 asked for something good on the mids and highs. 40hz is subbass. I would say the 5.25 could probably go to about 80hz, but it's just a 5.25" speaker, what do you want, low octave miracles? Buy a sub.
ProfilePower. Read.understand.post. In that order.
hiloracerboy84: If you're only looking to spend about $50, talk to the people here willing to sell stuff. I've found this forum to be pretty respectable about selling things. I've made 3 purchases to date, and don't regret any of them.

i haveto remind you you can adjust the sound you get from a speaker nomatter how the speaker is made but in this case my jvc wouldnt be great for highs..i retract my suggestion...ty
i'mjust saying adjusting 3bands is hardly a eq....5bands minium,,i'd prefer 9.....
01-14-2005, 09:12 PM
Well, that's all preference. I have worked with a lot of 3 to 5 band EQs, so that's why I'm comfortable with. 5-9 would be overkill to me. If I gotta tweak my speakers that much, it's time to rethink my speaker choices.
That said, the JVC I listened to had amazing mids and highs. Had I not indulged myself and got Rainbow Dreamlines, I would be running the JVCs right now.
