    Alpine SPX-177R, or maybe the Polk MMC6500...

    The Type X's will murder the Polks in SQ. You'll need to fabricate a fairly tall spacer out of MDF to fit them in a MKIV Golf (I'm going to be putting them in my 03 GTI here hopefully soon).

    Re: $200 range, need 6.5s...NEED OPINIONS

    yeah i put some type x comps in the girlfriends car and i settled for the type r comps in my car, i got the shaft type x's ftw

    they sound great if you get the setup right very crisp and clean i would reccomend doing a nice door treatment though (deadening and sealing the back of the woofer from the front and then they soun even better

    and i hope you are going use them on an amp and not the head unit

    Re: $200 range, need 6.5s...NEED OPINIONS

    my kenwood xxv-04s are up for auction, they wont fit in my doors worth a ****

    i didn't set a reserve, tho, and not too many people even know what they are, or know kenwood makes speakers better than the $80 ones at best buy

    i'd probably go with the x's tho

    i loved my type-x 12's, i just hate type-r components, and was weary of the x's

    Focal 165v1, they sound great in my car with no deadning or anything. At high volumes the tweeters get a little harsh, but overall there probably one of the better speakers you can get for $200.

    Re: $200 range, need 6.5s...NEED OPINIONS

    Id go with the type X's or pm 6spdcoupe and ask about some soundlines.IMO if you have the money get the soundlines with the kickbass mids and you will b happy

    But its between the type X's and the soundlines are teh best mentioned in this thread
