    selling my Dyn's and buying some Diamonds.

    well I never even heard my Dynaudio System 260's and they are sold to a friend (once he gives me the money)

    Another friend got me a fantastic deal on a set of Diamond Audio D971's for less than $450 brand new at the dealer where his friend works. So before I even hear those Dyn's and change my mind I'm getting those D9's. Too good of a deal to pass up.

    also I have never had good speakers before in a car. the best I had were some cheap 6.5 kenwoods and Advent speakers back in the day (10 years ago) since then nothing but stock. ANY speaker I put in will sound leaps and bounds better than anything I have ever owned. I checked the D9's out today at a local shop and god **** they sound amazing. I don't know what the Dyn's sound like but when my bro installs them in his ride I'll find out.

    D9's are very nice and all, but i'd still rock the Dyn's over them. Either way you are getting great speakers. Good luck.

    Both are great choices and would of course vary in each persons tastes, but I have a feeling well be hearing back from you with regrets for not keepin the Dyns...

    I can't say that about my Dynaudio's either. they have the same basket design with lack of magnet.

    Re: selling my Dyn's and buying some Diamonds.

    I think I would hold off on making a decision until after you've heard the Dyns.

    I'd rather go with the best sounding speaker, rather than the best "deal".

    I have heard the D9's and love them. I'm getting exactly what I want.


    P.S. I have to have my doors fiberglassed to hold which ever speaker I choose. I do not want to deal with changing the pods around to hold a different set. I tested the D9's and I have to say I was really impressed with them. so it's not all about saving money. if they didn't sound amazing "to me" I wouldn't buy them.

    Re: selling my Dyn's and buying some Diamonds.

    There really isn't a whole to compare other than tweeters. The D9 driver is based on the Morel Elate/Cast frame using that similar design poly cone both Dyn/Morel use. You should not be too far off midbass performance/tonality specially pumping the same power to them. Just hard for me to pass up that md100 tweeter for a hard dome, specially when you havent compared both- considering the history of the Diamond Hex tweeters and passive xovers.

    But like i said either way you are in for a nice treat.
