Well, in that case, pick up the Rainbow Reference series. Should only cost you $6,000. Or, check into the Alpine F#1 status set. Those are cheaper at ~$2,500. The CDT ES-07.4X should also be right up your alley at $2,799.

Or, when you said no price range, did you really mean you do have a price range ;)


If you want "high end" and still somewhat affordable, check out the Boston Acoustics Z6 series (~$750), DLS Iridiums, Dynaudio, Morel, Focal, Rainbow, etc etc. But, we still need a price range ;)

madisound has some pretty nice stuff

some 2500$ tweets and some nice mids should do the trick

Check into the Boston Z6's aswell ;) If it wasn't for my horns, I'd be running those Z6 in my car right now.

i love horns. they put the sound out cleanly and place it VERY well. no need for a center channel either. you can get the cd-1 comp set and with a good eq and some patience you can get pretty good sound. the cd-1pro and cd-2 would require the same eq but a pretty good 24db xover as well

:word:

I love my horns as well (and they're even setup pretty crappily right now). I'm runnin' Illusion Audio CH1 horns. Much more dynamic, lively and impactful than any tweeter I've heard. And they image pretty darn well straight outta the box.

Great thing is they are super efficient (>105db in most cases), so you only need ~15-25w to get them playing louder then you'd ever need.

However, they tend to be a little more expensive to setup than most components (since, in most cases, an active xover and EQ are not an option, but required).

But not everyone is a horn person :) Some people prefer their tweeters. Different strokes for different folks.
