    There are probably dozens, but it depends on your ear. If they sound like the best set of comps at that price to your ear, then they're the best set of comps. There are some who would argue they're the best at any price and others who will argue hat something that costs half as much sounds better. Speakers are subjective. What's best is what sounds best to you.

    Speaker preference is OPINION ..... Having said that , I personally don't feel that ANY other brand of speakers can compete with Rainbow , when you're talking price point to price point.

    i've never heard rainbow but i love the Z6's. That being said, everyone is right. Don't go by brand and just close your eyes and listen. If you like some Clarion Phaze speakers the best, then go with them. Brand should have nothing to do with your decision (except warranties, reliability, respectability, well you get the drift).

    and blue-

    ****! i wish santa was that nice to me!

    For the price point of the Germs I don't think there is anything out there that would be better. I once had the Germs in my car so I am a bit bias to them and Rainbow but I have run other high end comps. But like Blue said it is all opinion

    if you can manage to go active, get some seas excel nextels coupled to lpg 25 nfa's. sound soooooo good.... got my self a set only $380... sounds pretty
    dam n close to the $1400 seas lotus reference set lol. (although the lotus tweet is reaaaally nice)

    imo, seas speakers are much better in terms of build quality than rainbow short of their platinum and reference line.

    The seas build quality is beyond reproach. Our shop sells Seas , and we have the Lotus Reference on display. However they do not have the warmth , strong mid-bass , or musicality of the Rainbow Profi Series.
    Seas has TONS of detail , but lacks that certain X factor that draws a person into the music ..... and we just can't sell the Seas once people compare them to the Rainbows ...

    There is just something about Rainbow that makes them who they are. You can compare all you want, you will be hard pressed to find another speaker that offers as much as Rainbow for the price, but there are a couple. Going active is another option that people should explore if they can...It is another world.
