    Whats comparable to DLS Iridium's (buying tomorrow so help or die... please)

    Searched didn't find what i was looking for

    Anyway tomorrow im going to purchase my speakers. Im planning on getting The Iridium 6.2s, but was wondering if there were any better options in the price range (im getting them for about 475 new) of 850 or whatever there MSRP is. I know its all opinion but what are some speakers you guys think are better in that price range?





    Regards,

    Better is pretty subjective. There are, however, other speakers you could consider such as the Boston Z6, Focal PolyKevlar K2P's, Dynaudio, MB Quart Q series, Rainbow Pro Line or Pro-Vandiums.....there's more, that's all I can think of.

    Forgot about me? or just waiting till I send ya a sample? I'm working on that one -- going to send ya an xover with all the diffrent options out there... High power protect the tweeter better -- low power higher quality -- and just some tweaks... need to get some nice switches and make a little box for ya though...

    yeah, they have a unique surround that gives them linearity like no other.

    I have the space 6's in my ride and they amaze me on a daily basis.

    if ur gonna go comp set, the DLS will be fine if u enjoy a nice, laid back, natural sound.

    however, like AzGrower said, i would much rather go DIY.
