    Best components in my price range for a 350z

    Well as the title says, I am looking to get a set of components for my 350z. I have a set of infinity 6010cs 6.5 components in there now but one of them is blown due to the fact that I like to crank it way up every now and then. My budget is 100-200 total that is shipping included. I mainly listen to rock and occasionally rap. I have access to any amps I need to power them. I was wondering if the DIAMOND AUDIO CM361 6 1/2" COMPONENTS were any good. Anyone have any other references for me?

    thanks in advance

    I see that you have access to amps, but which ones, how much power etc?



    NEVER buy from Dealer Cost Car Audio, ask me why

    Rainbow SLC+Tru 4.65 + RF 3sixty.2 = yum.

    Mainly MA audio amps and power ranges go up to 300 watts x2 rms. I also have access to some audiobahn, profile and infinity amps up to 300 watts x2 rms as well. By 300x2 i mean 600 total rms.

    I loved the way they sounded. Its just that I want to be able to crank them every now and then and not blow them. These don't like being cranked too loud. They did sound very nice at lower volumes though. And as far as the amps sucking, why do they ****? I am just curious. And I wouldnt mind having a little better sound quality...most systems I hear with better quality seem alot louder than mine. I am guessing it has to be due to the clarity.

    CDT Cl-61a's. Not bad price and pretty good sound, I like em. If I was upgrading sooner, I'd sell you my pair, just too cold here.

    Don't know how much this matters, but I am planning on installing 2 phoenix gold titanium elite 12s in my z later on this year when I get some time.

    Wow....I always wanted a U.S. amps amplifier lol...looks like I will be moving over to the infinity amp then.

    Re: Best components in my price range for a 350z

    I'd recommend:

    Pioneer Rev 6.5" Components ($155)
    Rainbow SLC 265's ($220?)
    Boston Acoustics ($175)

    To me the Pioneer's are clear, but the rainbows have more midbass...the bostons are a mix between the two.

    All very nice speakers, all don't need massive ammounts of power to run well..

    don't like the diamonds...too harsh...not enough midbass. THey're OK....but you can find better definately.

    Thanks for the info. It looks like I might go with the Bostons then.

    Yeah go with the BostonPro60's. Those get really loud and sound crisp and clear. Those will own the Infinity's you had. So will a set of JL XR's. If you want your highs to be in your face loud you will love the XR's. The midbass is awesome and I can turn the volume up waaay past the threshold of pain with no distortion. I also have them crossed somewhat low at 63hz. My vote goes for a set of XR's.

    Well it seems that both of those are out of my price range so far. I cannot find either for 200 or less shipped. I found a pair of used XRs on ebay and they are up to 170 something with like 30$ shipping so they are already too high for me . So where can I find them cheaper?
