    Congrats! Looking forward to the review. If you don't mind me asking, where did you purchase these and how much? In the market for a new set of speakers!

    There is a very good review on the RW165's in the Review section. Did you get the brand new set that just came out?? Which tweet??

    Aluminum. I can't wait until I get them installed!

    The drivers are top notch. It doesnt feel/look cheap at all. How do you like yours?

    Re: Seas Lotus Ref's came today!

    nice i got the alum tweet as well. BUT these tweeters IMO play like silk tweets on roids. very smooth and transparent, airy. very detailed, but show no signs of harshness at all. top end isn't as good as my old LPG 25nfa but the top end is still pretty good.

    i can't say enough about the mids though. midbass is very snappy, quick. efficient. as i said off of 75 watts, i can feel it in my chest (deaden doors and sealed up mids will do that as well). also i had the performance mids in before the reference mids. so when i threw in the reference mids in, my music cleared up significantly. the midrange on these things are just insane. you'll love them.

    what amp are you running the set on? you biamping?

    Thats sweet. I heard that the alum play just like silk thats why I opted for them. I'll probably wet my pants upon hooking them up and firing them for the first time. Anyways, they're going to be running off an Orion amp for now, and Im not biamping them. We'll see how it goes. I might change the Orion amp out in place of my Nakamichi's. If not, I'm thinking about upgrading to a nice Zapco, Audison, or Arc amp.

    I can't wait to hear the midbass. I've been reading/hearing stories about them. I can't wait until I finally hear them. I've deadened my doors weeks ago, just waiting for these to go in. I can finally show a friend of mine, that it truly does make a difference by deadening the doors.
