    dayton

    has anyone heard about or listened to any dayton speakers, i havent been able to find anyone that has them in a store so i can listen to them but they are really cheap online ( like 7'' for 35 each ) but one person told me they sound really good ( even better than their rainbow slc's ). so if anyone has had experience with dayton speakers could you please let me know what you think about them. i tried searching and didnt really come up with much. thanks

    Great speakers.

    You're probably speaking of the RS7"?

    Detailed, accurate, lack a little midbass.

    Great speaker all around.

    Buddy has a pair of Reference 7's in each door of his BlazerXtreme. Says they sound really good and have good midbass. They get pretty loud too. But he's taking them out and putting his Eminence's back in because they are waaay louder.

    yeah i just read up on the eminences and read a lot about how loud they get...i think im going more for sound quality right now becuase they will most likely be loud enough for me...a lot of you guys on here have extremely loud systems so your not loud is really loud for me. can anyone compare these to a more mainstream set of speakers ( like alpine, jl, polk, infinty etc ) so i can maybe see how they sound. i dont know if that really makes sense though

    Re: dayton

    If properly setup and powered... and paired with a decent tweeter...

    They can sound as good or better than a lot of entry-mid level component sets.

    Re: dayton

    What tweeter will you be pairing them with?

    What active or passive xover will you be using?

    How about an amplifier?

    Re: dayton

    i honestly have no idea..i was just talking with someone that is a mod on a nissan forum and he said he just installed these in his car and they sounded better than anything hes had including the rainbows...i dont think my headunit can do the active thing ( i dont know if thats true or not )...im not sure if should get these or not i was kind of hoping for something that would sound better than type-r's, ive heard those in BB and wanst to impressed with the SQ.

    Hands down better than TypeR components.

    BUT.

    You will need.

    -Dayton 7" mids
    -Tweeter capable of matching well with them
    -And active or passive xover, to xover the mids/tweet
    (You current HU doesn't do this...)
    -If active, you will need 4channels of amplification for the front stage.
    -If passive, you will need a custom passive xover for best results.

    Just making sure you know what you're getting into.
