    Need Component speaker set(s)! (Please help)

    I haven't kept myself updated in the audio scene, so I am not sure of what to buy.

    I am looking for ~3 component sets to re-do my sound stage and get rid of my old alpines that couldn't satisfy my hunger for loud, clean, ear bleeding music. I'm am going to put two in the front, and 1 in the rear for fill, while deadening everything correctly this time so it sounds a lot nicer when I turn it up.

    Here's what I'm looking for:
    Loud,
    Clear,
    Clean,
    and Crisp.

    My old components took 50 rms watts each, (Alpine SPR-176A) and I had two sets of em. I'd like if the components you recommend use 50-125 rms watts each.

    Price range, I'm hoping to get each set for around 200, I will pay more for nice speakers though, as long as they're that good and worth all that money.
    I cannot afford a total over 1000.00, because I still need to buy nice amps for them. For the mathematically challenged, that's 333.33 each set.


    Thankyou for the information!



    Edit: I'm am looking for 6.5" comps.

    I also heard somewhat of rainbows, I'm looking at these:

    Edit:

    Deciding if these are worth the extra money:

    Rainbow CS 265 Contour Line 6-1/2" Two-Way Component System.

    2 sets of rainbow germaniums up front and no rear fill FTW. ($450x2=$900 wee!) Spend the other 100 on some random 6x9's etc. if you REALLY want rear fill for some reason...though 2 sets of germaniums will be so loud i doubt you'll need rear fill.
    From what i understand, the contour line no longer is manufactured. You'll want to get in touch with 6spdcoupe about current rainbow lines and prices.

    Research the CDT Cl61a Pro's, i have the lower series cl61a's and they sound so clean and crisp its hard to beleive. I can give them well over 110 to 130 watts rms with not a single sign of stress or distortion and i can crank them to full volumes with no ear piercing sounds since the tweeters are silk dome

    Don't think I'd need any real fill for a 5 seater coupe?
    Hmm...I do want it plently loud though, but man, geraniums are expensive.

    Also, I found the manuf. website and I noticed that there is no sign of the contours, won't be buying from that site, seems outdated or something.



    So ATM, I decieding between the "Rainbow CS 265", or maybe some germaniums...anyone here listen to the both of them?

    i'd just spend all the money on a nice component set and if rear fill is really necessary just get a set of coaxials to run off HU power. so for a component under $1000 roughly, of course im going to recommend the new seas lotus reference set .



    W200/H701
    Dyn MW160/Lotus RM110/Seas Neo Alum/Idmax
    Alpine PDX
