    75 w to 100 w comps worth it?

    I was wondering if it is worth making the jump from 75 watt rms comps to 100 watt rms comps, would it make a BIG difference or not really........

    Any of you done it and was it worth the jump?......



    Make it better......

    What kind of comps? What kind of amp do you have now and what are you looking to get?

    I assume this pushes 100x4 @ 4 ohms?

    I'd get the boston acoustics or MB Quarts

    I like the MB's.

    You might want to stay with the same kind due to the freq. and the whole sound compairson issue. Some people tend to think that the MB's are more harsh than others, some like the Boston's due to their smothness. It all personal preferance, but I would stick with the same kind.

    Adire Audio, Cadence, Clarion, MB Quart

    Lv = [(14630000 x R^2) / (Fb^2 x Vb)] - 1.463R
    *Vb = vol. in cu"
    **R = sq.rt. A / Pi (for square/slot port)

    If I was to choose between MB Quarts and Rockford I'd take MB anyday. As for the the 75 to 100 power change I'd highly recomend it. Not only would you get a big difference in SQ but if you needed some headroom you'd have some. Later

    You just need to listen to the 2 to know that this is true. MB Quarts sound way better than Rockford.......at least in my opinion

    MB Quarts sound much better. I think that there is one two reasons why RF bought MB Quarts:

    1. Have gain more $$$ from the SQ market (rather than day to day people)

    2. If I'm not mistaken it means that RF can intergrate some of the patients from MB Quarts products & vice versa.

    RF sure does own alot of companies anymore. The two largest names that stick out in my head is MB Quarts and Lightning Audio. Oh well, I''ve got no complaints....
