    Infinity References vs Kappas

    I'm need some new 6.5's for the doors of my 02 Chevy Monte Carlo. I'm looking at some Infinitys. I can get the 2-way References for about $85 at Circuit City or $72 from woofersetc, but I see the price for the Kappas are reasonable. The Kapaas would be about $103, but is it much of a difference between the two? Both would be amplified. I'm not really interested in comps. Also, I blew the factory bose tweeters in the doors, can anyone recommend a good pair of tweeters that arent too highly priced, and the Infinity tweeters ok? I also have 4 other tweeters also, there cheapos, so would be some good replacments, everything is amplified.

    Also, I know they don't produce much bass, I already have subs.

    Re: Infinity References vs Kappas

    I personally dislike them, way too harsh for me.

    I used to own a set of 6.5 Kappas and I wasn't very impressed. They were VERY harsh like bimma said. I haven't heard the Reference comps but the Reference subs are pretty decent.

    Re: Infinity References vs Kappas

    the kappa speakers imho are very harsh. I'm currently running 6.5" Reference in the front and rear of my CRX with 2 12" Reference running off of my Crossfire BMF1000D. The system is crisp, clear, and still gets the point across that it has some boom

    Re: Infinity References vs Kappas

    i loved the sound of my kappa 6x9 and components, nice loud and clear, but then again im more of an aggresive listner, when i had a arc 4050 the 6x9 used to make a nasty distorted EXTREMELY harsh sound on some notes on the tweeter, every other amp i used never did that.
