    Theyd be up there IMO, but not worth the price tag.

    Theyre only $10K

    Re: Top 5 Components

    My number 1....with out a doubt...the Ring Rev and Audio Technologies combo..nothing...I mean nothing comes close...

    second would be the Genesis/Scan ...a **** fine set...tonally nothing beats it except the above set

    third would be the Rainbow Ref set....another set that's hard to beat..the Cal30 tweeter is insane

    4th and 5th could go both ways for me the SEAS or Dyns...both have their faults...both have their strengths

    Do the focal BE's make it anywhere close to your top 5? And what about horns?

    ****it...I knew I forgot something...Focal Be's would be 2.5 ...with the 3w2 being hands down the finest 3 period and only second to the scan 4 tonaly...the tweeter is by far the best they have ever made...and hte midbass is very good but not incredible...

    and horns...most of the team ID elite guys are real close friends of mine...but they all know that I hate horns...HATE!!!!! even more so than the L3's

    The Fox audiomobile now sounds more quality thanks to SDS power.

    though the profi's are nice...they aren't the end all be all....and if after listening to a properly setup system with the comps I mentioned...and you can't hear the difference then I would find a new hobby
