    if you never plan on running an amplifier, the s60's are a decent sounding speaker. however, i woiuld recommend stepping up to the sx60. for just a little more money, a much better sounding setup, especially with a little power going to them

    I have sx50's as rear speakers. They are alright. They would be fine if your going for a real cheap system with a small amp. But if your looking for good sound I'd look elsewhere

    Re: Who here has heard the boston s60's?

    i would rather go with the pioneer tds-170r's (revs), i had them in my mustang up front. i also really like the diamond coaxials, the d3's. and zapcos iforce coaxials sound good, heard them a while back. alond with the d3's and iforces are the polk momo coaxials. a buddy of mine has them in his boat and they sound good.

    get some id's they are out of 6.5s so you would have to find them at a dealer but they have the 5 1/4's in stock, i went with their horn component set, installing them tomorrow, i have some pics but they arent 56k friendly lol. I would also check into the diamond hex series those were my second choice to these id's but the id's look very promising to me.

    Would the sl60 be worth the 200? It seems BA seems to lack midbass if you dont step up to the Pros.

    the diamond d3's have a ton of midbass. they absolutly sound great if you have enough power behind them. the pioneer has some mid bass to it as well, and it is pretty darn loud.
