    Icon32 Help, Final Component Choice before I Buy!

    I have narrowed it down to a few 6.5" components and i would like everyone's opinions and whats good or bad about them. Trying to stay under $150 now. I dont really care about the bass part of the midbass b/c i have a reg cab truck and my DD's freakin pound my ribs out. What would be the best for rap and rock? These will be ran more than likely off of the PG 4.0:2 which is 150 x 2 @ 4ohms.

    PG X6.5 (like $100 bucks)
    Alipine Type R (around $130)
    Pioneer Rev's (around $145)

    Hi there,

    Of the 3 choices you have narrowed down to, I would go with the Alpine type R. I run Alpine speakers although not those componants, and I am very happy with mine. Those type R's have had some really good reviews on crutchfield.com ect... Just my 2 cents worth

    Revs own the Type Rs. Do a search and you'll see thats the majority on the forum.

    Re: Help, Final Component Choice before I Buy!

    Well i've read good things about the Rev's but not enough for me to think that their that much better than the R's. This is kinda pissin me off now haha. I cant decide between these 3.

    Get the revs, or my CDT's

    Seriously, the revs are MUCH clearer IMO.Hard to describe the sound of the type R's, but it sounds like someone is holding a pillow in front of the mid and tweet.Muddy and muffled if you will.The revs are clean and "crisp" if you will.

    Re: Help, Final Component Choice before I Buy!

    Ahhh haha alright. I went and listend to the Type R's, S's, and X's today and i thought the R's were kinda muffled sounding. I mean i dont really need to much midbass i just want it to be clean and loud. Also, its says 60 RMS for the Rev's....if i get the PG 4.0:2 then thats 150x2 @ 4ohms. Should i go ahead and get that and just watch the gains or just get the PG 2.5:2 thats like 75x2 @ 4ohms???

    well you were considering the type R with the revs. Its a $15 dollar difference. Why not just spend your money on the revs?



    Its 106 miles to chicago, we got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, its dark and we're wearing sunglasses.


    Go, passer-by, and tell the world
    That we perished in the cause,
    Faithful to our orders.
