View Full Version : 6½ comps
04-09-2005, 11:27 PM
I'm still trying to decide on some components for my jeep. I have 1500 watts running to my mtx 9512 and im trying to find one pair that will keep up nicely with that. I want to bi amp them with no rear fill until later thanks in advance. open to all suggestions

Go with some Bostons, Alpine, DLS, CDT, Infinifty it all depends on your budget, give us that and we will name speakers aproprate for that range.

Here is something i did for somebody else with the same question;

alright thanks bro i probably should have just looked around but i figured this would get me a faster response..... im going to look into those diamond audio hex's though

Try to listen to as many sets as possible before you settle on something. Though they will sound different in the vehicle, it give a good idea of what they could sould like. I vote for a set of Image Dynamic Chameleons just to be different.

but there 3way and i have no want in the world to have to drill my own hole in the door......i was looking into those diamond audio hex series. i cant find anywhere though wether or not they are bi-ampable anyone have any idea
04-10-2005, 07:50 PM
I meant this set, but in a 6.5" size. They're 2 way. They come in 4 or 2 ohm, but you are correct; they aren't bi ampable.

Don't let someone over the internet talk you into one specific set. Just because they like them, doesn't mean you will ;) Everyone has different listening preferences....and theirs will likely be different than yours.
Get a list of suggestions, and hit up the local shops to see how many you can find to listen to, and do searches on all the forums about the sets you are interested in and try to find some reviews of them. But listening with your own ears is the only way to know for sure which set is the best for you.
Look into the Boston Acoustic Pro series, OZ Audio 180CS comps, Rainbow Contours, Focal Polyglass, DLS UP6 and UR6, etc etc.....

there are a lot of comps out there on the market, what you need to do is decide what kidn of power you're gonna have for them at either 4 or 2ohms then decide what kind of overall sound you're going for. having front stage is nice, but i prefer comp's all the way around - i prefer to have a central sound in my car where no matter my position it still pretty much sounds the same (of course if you're right next to the door speaker its going to be louder than rest of the car in that specific ear).

I've got a set of those CDT ef61-cf's in the front doors of my 2002 grand cherokee amped at 85watts RMS and these things are great... very solid midrange and CRISP... best speakers I'VE heard. I just need another set of tweeters as I didn't have money to replace them all at once...
The stock tweeters blew in under 4 minutes LoL hooked up as image tweeters on the crossover.

If you cant afford the Hex Diamond also makes many other good component sets like the M6 series comps. They sound imho almost identical.
04-22-2005, 02:33 AM
I liked the sound of diamond comps I heard in a store (not hexes) but I hear they have some bad reliability issues, like the tweets going bad specifically
BTW: You can bi-amp anything...just toss the passive crossover and use active ones (either built into the amp, or seperate) and wire each tweet to its own channel/amp and each mid to its own channel/amp

how about mb quart?

if you want it loud with a regular speaker a proper set of id chameleons (2 ohm model not bi ampable is great) to get from what i see a bi amp set is $$$ unless they are older models like boston pro 6.5. if you really want to keep up with your subs truely i would get horns http://www.infinitecaraudio.com/cgi-bin/icastore.cgi?user_action=detail&catalogno=CS16MH takes far less power and would image correctly and probably able to be louder than your subs meaning keeping up would be no prob
