    Re: Rainbow Comps?

    xtant 604x
    or the 403 with the passives activated...

    or any arc audio would be nice...


    mcintosh? Brax?

    Really comes down to what you want to spend and exactly how transparent of a sound youd like. The 403 can be purchased directly from xtant for 200 and with an rm4 module support five channels. It is a clean amplifier and I would look to the 604 if 75-90 clean watts isnt enough. (That is a moderate approximation of what the thing is actually outputting, but mine is plenty lowd and clear in comparison to the 6 channel jl i pulled out.) Even with the rears 4db attenuated.

    Re: Rainbow Comps?

    I have the rainbow dream series and they sound beautiful, they just don't get as loud as I'd like them to. I have the 5 1/8" speakers, but I'll be ordering the contour line 6 1/2" next.

    You've got my vote for rainbowwww.

    Re: Rainbow Comps?

    You know expensive speakers are all around expensive, amps to push'em, sound dampening, good processing, proper install, wiring, good matching with a sub to accentuate the quality of sound you're looking for. It'sgonna be tough to find an amp in that price range for those speakers especially a three way set that needs good balance and alot of tweaking with crossover points and.... well just alot of work. but that is why we're in this!

    Re: Rainbow Comps?

    a jl 450/4.... i would have gone with the arc audio but one of my friends deals them but i got it from a guy on this forum cheap. I mostly got it 'cause of the rips system so when decide to have door panels built i'll add my old 6.5 (pro 265) to this setup without having to add another amp. My friend also sold me the rainbows so i cant reveal the price, real low though lol!

    Re: Rainbow Comps?

    dont worry 'bout spending money on rear-fill all it'll do is ruin your front stage anyway, and the whole point is the drivers seat, it's your car but if you do get something for the passengers comps are the way to go!but remember dont do it!
    Yeah i got lucky with those ,they sound amazing, i've heard other top notch speakers and these are the winners to me. the phd's are more detailed though they are prob a bit better, but hey cant win them all. And don't let guys talk trash 'bout the jl amps they're real nice, i compared my jl with the arcs, the arcs are more detailed and cleaner but they could always be an upgrade. I've already decided on the audison amps, these are beasts!

    Re: Rainbow Comps?

    just 'cause the watts arent a bijillion doesnt mean you wont have enough power, ive heard 40 watts sound huge well kind o f unfair it was a tube amp but amp ratings are all over the place sometimes. the big companies underate their stuffor do they everyone else might overate their stuff feel me
