    Icon32 Rainbow Germaniums?

    Are these available in the US yet and where? How do they compare to the SLC or the Hex? I have been looking at the Diamond s600s on ebay but don't like the idea of no warranty except from the seller.

    I will be powering the components with the new Soundstream Ref880.4 (4x75RMS @ 4ohms) which is on order.

    Re: Rainbow Germaniums?

    Diamond S6's are a good speaker but not the best around. I had a set and there was a soldering issue with one of the crossovers I had to fix. I would go with Dls UP6's personally (big shock there!)

    Re: Rainbow Germaniums?

    the Germaniums are a big step up fom the SLC. I know people rave about the crossover on them being very nice. HeX's i was never really impressed with. Midbass was jsut lacking even with a lot of power



    COMING SOON audioque, sundown, ID etc...

    ya the Germaniums are better than SLC's but for the price SLC's are excellent.

    edit: 6spdcoupe sells Rainbow products too.

    I am interested in the Soundlines, I just wish they had the 1" tweet instead of the 3/4". I have a pm in to 6spdcoupe and hope to get more info soon.

    By any chance did this soldering issue cause your highs to be overpowering almost to the point of causing pain? I had a pair of hex's in one car and loved them, then I sold the car and bought a brand new pair for the new car, and they sounded very harsh in the highs. I put Alpine crossovers in and that fixed it, so I sent the hex crossovers to Diamond and they replaced them, but I had the same problem with the new ones, so I said F it and sold 'em. Just wondering if this is the same problem.

    The problem mine had was the tweet blinking in and out randomly, and then you could hold the crossover w/ music playing and flex it a bit and it would stop playing. I doo think the tweeters were a bit bright though (but better than the Polk db6500's they replaced- those things would saw your ear off.)

    Re: Rainbow Germaniums?

    Thanks for the responses regarding the Hex! Sounds as though they would have been a mistake. I am leaning toward the Germaniums, but also looking at the X Line for their shallow mounting ability and the cal25 tweeter. The SLCs are another option, but I wish they came with the cal25 instead of the smaller .75" tweeter. If I go with the Germaniums I will be making custom kicks for my DC Tundra (very shallow mounting in the doors).
