    Any thoughts on ARC components?

    I just ordered an ARC 2150SE that I'm going to pick up next week. The dealer also sells the full line of ARC products. I havn't read much on here about their components, so I was curious. I don't know if they have any of their speakers there for a demo or not, so I'm not sure I can audition any. I have pretty much made up my mind on Rainbow 265 Pro-Fi Kicks. I wasn't anticipating the ARC's to be in that league, but if anyone knows, what would their best models be close too.....Thanks in advance

    Regards Sonny

    Re: Any thoughts on ARC components?

    i was going to buy the arc components, but they werent in stock at the time so i got the alumapros. from what manny told me, they're a bit better than the rainbow slc's. doubt they'd be as good as the pro-fi kickbasses, but i'm sure they're nice. i love my alumapros.

    Re: Any thoughts on ARC components?

    depends which your referencing...ACS265s were a great set and up to par with many of the Rainbow especially with them utilizing the infamous CAL25 tweets. Unfortunately they have been discontinued some time ago and have not/will not be returning. The KAR265s are a decent set of entry levels, nothing more -nothing less.

    The SE 600s really never got off the ground yet and the FD6000s are alon the same lines of the KARs.

    Thanks everyone....I was looking at the FD line on their website since they appeared to be their topline. I guess I'll just keep leaning towards the Pro-Fi Kicks......Thanks again.

    Actually their flagship would be the SE600s. Although in my opinion both pale in comparison to Profis.

    Oh, Ok, Thanks, I didn't read though all their specs....and they didn't show prices so I was just guessing. I did check out the site for the Alumapros ALC's. They seem to be reasonably priced, are they fairly strong in the mid area?

    Alumapro doesnt list their prices either.

    Yes they are a great well rounded set.

    Yeah, the only way I had a guestimate on the Alumapros was a saw a site that listed the 6.2's for I think 270.00

    Re: Any thoughts on ARC components?

    awesome in the mid area. phenryiv1 has heard my stereo after i took out the subs, so it was just the components he heard. played hotel california and money for nothing for him. shoot him a pm and ask him what he thought about the ALC's

    meant to ask about the se600's, what are those all about? along the same lines as the alc's i'm guessing?

    and 270? i paid like 380!

    Re: Any thoughts on ARC components?

    Sorry, I didn't mean to stir up anything. Here's a link to the site, http://www.carreview.com/mfr/alumapr...8_1805crx.aspx

    It says 6.2 MSRP is 270.00 that's all I was going by. Maybe it's something different

    Regards Sonny
