    Comp upgrade advice

    I'm looking to upgrade my 6 year old DEI 3065 comps to something that can handle 100w per and sound better to boot. I prefer a somewhat bright tweeter. Mids dont have to be outstanding but noticeable. These will be mounted in stock locations in a 96 Saturn.

    Thanks in advance for any and all suggestions/advice .

    Re: Comp upgrade advice

    I'd say no more than $300 limit.

    I'm looking at the Focal Polyglass 165v2. Can anyone chime in on the tweeters for these?

    Re: Comp upgrade advice

    How about a set of Bostons. They have been a favoite of mine since way back. My pros beat the hell out of some quart comps that I tried once as far as mids go and the tweets aren't as harsh as the quarts can be.

    did you even hear the comps your buying?



    Its 106 miles to chicago, we got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, its dark and we're wearing sunglasses.


    Go, passer-by, and tell the world
    That we perished in the cause,
    Faithful to our orders.
