I am looking for suggestions on 3-way component sets - figure a price max of $350.
So far, I have been considering:
Focal 165v3 - I read good things - very good things. These are the PolyGlass line, and I can get last year's model for a shade over $300. The new 165v3e might be a bit out of my price range. Probably number one choice right now.
MB Quart PSD-316 - Again, I read good things, but complaints about harsh tweeters worries me. Some lines also seem to have lower efficiency ratings - some people say not to worry about that stuff, but personally I find that it matters. Last choice unless I'm somehow convinced otherwise.
JL Audio XR-653cs - Might wind up on the pricey side, but I wouldn't mind giving the respected JL name a shot. Again, however, some issues with harsh tweeters. Probably 2nd choice at this time.
Planet Audio P63-CKS - Cheapest of the bunch ($199 online), and unknown quality. Though I've read some opinions that overall Planet is a good company, and makes solid products. 3rd place now, due to lack of opinions from users.
Other suggestions are encouraged, please!!! I'm working with either 125 watts or 250 watts per side, as I can bridge my 4-channel amp if necessary. I would prefer to keep it to the 125, however.
Kindly *try* to stick to the $350 limit!
And this may be a long-shot; but if anyone knows of a good place to audition these choices (or any others suggested) near Long Island, NY, I'd really appreciate it. I'll travel an hour or two if necessary to go hear them, also.
Thanks to all who can help!
