    Looking for a decent set of co-axials for a friend, any suggestions?

    So my friend is putting his system together and decided he wants rear fill. I tried to talk him into using no rear fill and use that money to get a good set of components up front, but he said he is getting rear-fill no matter what.

    His budget: $100 tops
    Running off a 4 channel amp, each rear getting ~70 watts RMS @ 4 ohms each

    I have little experience with co-axials, so he wants somebody to suggest some that can get REALLY loud on 70 watts, and sound decent doing it. Harsh tweeters are ok he says.

    I also tried to convince him to build some rear baffles that will fit some 6.5's in the 5x7 location, but he wants to go with the 5x7's

    infinity or cdt or some rainbows would be alright. dunno what exactly he wants it for but those would put out a decent full range sound for rear

    Well he was looking at the Infinity Kappa 682.7CF.

    A quick eBay search shows like it might be decent, and its 2 ohms, so he can get it more power than a 4 ohm speaker.

    He should really make those back ones 6.5s instead of 5x7s .. opens up ur options.. and you can match your rear 6.5's with the ones u plan on buying upfront.

    Re: Looking for a decent set of co-axials for a friend, any suggestions?

    He's getting the Boston Pro60's and I'm building him some baffles for his front doors for them. He doesn't want to put much handy work into his system because he works and the rest of the time he is lazy

    A few 5x7's I've been looking at, anybody have experience with them?

    Alpine Type-R 5x7's
    Diamond Audio D371i
    Boston S85 (SL80's are out of his price range)
    Infinity Kappa
    682.7CF (seems like the best choice to me so far)

    I've read a lot of bad reviews for the Type-r's, but I went to Tweeter yesterday and the Type-s's were loud as hell and the Bostons got loud and clean too. I had a problem with Infinity's awhile ago I kept blowing em although I did have a lot of power running to them. I don't have any experience with the Diamonds.

    No personal experience, but I read a lot of good things about the Eclipse line.
    I think its called Point Source or Source Point.

    A lot of the brands mentioned above are good. I don't know what experiences other people have had with Audiobahn, but I put their high-end coaxal 6-1/2" in all four of my factory locations and have not been disappointed.
