I can get the Crystal Comps refurbed for cheap but the RE group buy makes the RE's a good deal also.

I like the RE's becuase of the impressive midbass and XBL^2 tech but I don't like that the tweets can only be flush mounted. The Crystal's mid has a phase plug so it might extend into the upper frequencies better but I'm not sure how the midbass performance will be. The tweeter can be flush mounted, surface mounted or angle mounted.

I have 70 watts per side to feed them and the mids will be mounted IB in my truck doors. I wanted to mount the tweets on my a-pillar but if I get the REs they'll have to be mounted on my door panel.

So... help me out fellas.

The midrange off and on axis response of the RE mid is phenomenal. The dustcap looks and sorta acts like a phase plug. My tweets are not flush mounted; they are surface mounted :)

That's good to hear...
How did you surface mount them, I thought they could only be flush mounted?
