    Well, eveyone looks for different things in their music. So speaker A sounds perfect to me, while speaker A sounds like **** to you...and vice versa.

    I would try your best to listen to the Alpine's, Infinity's, and MB Quart's at your local Circuit City/Best Buy, whatever you have, and see what sounds best to you Dont purchase anything from there, though

    listening at circuit city

    I would like to do this, but my local circuit city, good guys, and bestbuy lack variety, and only sell the cheapest models that exist. Is there any in particular that you like Steve?

    Let me know.


    Thanks

    You like the MB Quart highs? You didnt find them to be piercing sharp? Have you listened to any MB Quart speakers? And if so, which models?
