I want to get some 6.5 comps. I've been doing a lot of searching on this site. And I've kinda narrowed my options down to several choices. I listen to all types of music, but mostly classical, r&b, gospel, and hip hop. Which of these speakers do you guys think I should get. I know I should listen to them myself, but unfortunately I don't know any place that actually carries them.
Ok, enough with the rambling and on to the choices:

1.) Diamond M6

2.) A/D/S 236is

3.) Boston Acoustics SL60

4.) Orion P6.2

5.) DLS MS6

6.) AVI BSM (depending on the price quote I get for them)

7.) CDT EF-61CFi


As you can see my prince range is around $200. Can you please help me choose help make a decision on which speaker would be best for me.

TIA

Thanks for responding supa_c.

Hopefully some of the other members who've heard the other comps will step up and voice their opinion.

The DLS's MS6, heard them as well, which is what made me buy the Iridiums. But... I do like the Focal Polyglass line, but it they would cost just a couple more $$$.

avi's are schweeeeeeet. hard to come by around the states though. i dont think you would find much better if any better midbasses than whats in those sets.

Hey audiolife from the reviews I've read and heard AVI's are sweet. I just may not be able to afford them. I did find a company that sells them, and I'm waiting for them to send me a price quote.
