    Best Speakers for Around $100?

    Hey all, I just one more part of my system to select: speakers. Please dont suggest I go listen to em myself since I dont have an audio store by me. I have about $100 to spend on them. I need either 5 x 7's or 6 x 8's. If possible Id love to buy it off sounddomain.com (rest of my system is being bought there), but if not, its ok. Thanks.

    How much power are you sending them?

    ...please tell me you're externally amplifying them.

    They are a little lower power handling than your amp will put out, but if you are careful setting your gain right, you'll be fine.

    Adapter: http://www.cardomain.com/item/SCOSA68 (something like that, I think thats the wrong size for you)

    Re: Best Speakers for Around $100?

    I have a pair of pioneer ts-a6867 6x8 speakers. They came off my ford probe, were used for 1 year off a jvc head unit.

    They look like this: http://www.carstereoworld.com/Images...er/tsa6867.jpg

    they do very well off amps. 40-60 watts rms would do fine. They were $99 brand new. I'd take $50.

    I also have a pair of Boston nx-87. they look like this.

    http://twtr.imageg.net/graphics/prod...p878255reg.jpg

    they are higher quality 6x8. Again, off my probe. Used 3 months. I removed them due to 2 front speakers = better imaging. They're in excellent condition and retail for $180 new. I'd be glad to take offers.


    pm me if you're interested

    Excellent sounding co-axials. These and some of the Boston Acoustics are some of the better sounding co-axials I've heard.

    x2 on the rev series. Avoid the lesser pioneers, they do not sound very good. Maybe try and track down some of last years infinity kappa 5x7's... even though they don't have them on sounddomain

    Re: Best Speakers for Around $100?

    Why did the rev series get such bad reviews? I am trying to choose between these speakers:
    Infinity Reference 6812cf
    Rockford Fosgate Power T1572C
    Kenwood KFC-C6889ie
    Polk MOMO Carbon MM575 (eBay = $95)

    Thanks.

    Re: Best Speakers for Around $100?

    So youd recommend those rev series over all of the speakers I listed?
