    i am a idiot, probably

    well ikesound today pissed me off, told me they didnt have and crystal sscs6 sets in stock nor were they expecting any.. even though i ordered them on sunday on the website..
    i was in a hurry and wanted to order something so i got a refund from them, but couldnt find a decent source for the crystals.. so i ordered a set of diamond d661s 6.5 comps with the silk tweeters. i ordered them basically cause woofersetc has them for $230 and i found a set on egay for $175 delivered..

    please tell me i didnt screw myself..
    i know i wanted the crystals, but i hope these will be at least 'nearly' as good

    any of you have expereince with these diamonds?

    thanks

    Crystals> will stomp on DA Hex's which I have owned
    and are more expensive than D6 comps and are considered better
    so in essence you were hasty in your decision IMO

    Crystals are some of the best comps I have ever heard
    and suit my taste's to a "T"

    They're not bad. I found their midbass to be rather lacking and the tweets really didnt have much life in them. They're a nice looking set, but the crossovers are massive.

    How do the cystals compare with the boston pro. I am between boston pro or crystals. I have heard boston and they are good, but I haven't heard crystals.

    Re: i am a idiot, probably

    The biggest difference between the Boston Pro and the Crystal will be the tweeter. Since the pro uses a titanium tweet, expect a sharper, brighter sound. While this is enjoyed by some, others like myself find it to be a tad overwhelming at long listening levels.

    The Bostons are also in another price range then the Crystals. If you are willing to spend that much, and you have a decent amp to power it, definately go with the Bostons. Theres alot of technology in those speakers and they provide great on and off axis response.

    crap

    oh well..
    honestly this will be my first set of comps.. have always been more interested in bass then sq(until recently).. i am sure they will be better then my 11 yr old boston coaxials..

    but i should have just waited and found the crystals somewere else.. oh well i will run these diamonds for a while and see how i like em.. if they arent good enough i can always buy myself the crystals for xmas, which is just round the corner..

    i thought i had heard good things about these diamonds with the silk tweets.. i know i have heard not to get the aluminum tweets, but thought this was a good choice : (

    Don't worry; it'll beat the crap out of your current setup, and with some EQing you'll be able to make them sound fine (and tweak some of the harshness of the metal domes out too). Fret not; you have made a large step up. Diamonds get alot of good reviews, but they are not the 'best' around. If you wanted the 'best', you could have waited...but you wanted better, and now. Which is what you got!

    Dood,
    Titanum tweets are smoother than my aura silks.......
    In otherwords just cause they are metallic doesnt mean they
    are metallic sounding....Titanum and Aluminum are 2 totally different animals
    so I think you made an assumption and I would like to say
    NO SIR


    try em before you call them harsh,bright,fatiguing etc.....
