View Full Version : Components for $250?

03-17-2005, 12:09 AM
I know you guys need another "which components?" thread about as much as you need a elephant to sit on your head, :D but here we go. I would like your input on a 6.5 in component set for around 250 that would give me the best SQ. I actually ordered the Focal polyglass 165V2, but neither site had them in stock so the orders were cancelled, So I am back at square 1.
Just for reference, I will be installing these in a 2001 Camaro, and be pushing them w/ a Soundstream Van Gogh 400.2 (100x2). No rear fill as of yet but maybe in the future. Subs are 3 Audiobahn aw1000x 10s powered by a JBL BP1200.1 and soon to be in a vehicle specific enclosure (triple 10 T-top box from subthump.com).

Thanks alot for the info,

CDT efcfi. $200 a set and they can't be beat IMO in that price range.

The Type-x's are nice, as well as the CDT ef's previously mentioned.

Where will the tweets be mounted? Would you rather have a harsh or laid back sound from the tweets? That will help narrow selections down quite a bit.

CDTs can be had with either tweet. For $250 you can get the silk and titanium tweets and see which you like more, or run both since the crossovers support it and it will come with the attenuation control.
