    Has anyone heard the newer MB Quarts?

    Hi all,
    I am a MB Quart fan and am looking for a pair to replace my 5 year old Discus DKD-116 6 1/2" speakers in my front doors.
    Unfortunately there are no stores in my area that carry MB's, that I am aware of. I purchased the 116's in MA when I was living in that state. I guess I will have to buy them online so I am hoping some of you have had heard the models I am listing and will tell me what you think.

    1: RUA-216 $150 at Crutchfield
    2: RVF-216 $150 at CarDomain
    3: DSG-216 $230 at CarDomain
    These are all component sets which ought to be much better than my coaxials but I have heard that MB quality is not as good as it used to be now that they are under new ownership.
    These will all fit my '98 Altima with a bit of modification for the tweeters and crossover.
    If you do not feel these are of good quality please feel free to suggest another brand/model in this price range.
    My other components are listed below though I am considering replacing the amp with a more powerful 4 channel.
    Thanks,
    Kai

    I have auditioned the JL VR650-CSi at my local shop and did like them very much but my ears like the tone of MB Quarts. I have also found a shop that carries Polk within 30 miles and will check them out. I am probably going to have to go to Syracuse, 70 miles S of my home, to have more of a selection.

    Dude, you can get the QSC216's on ebay for nearly the price of those DSG's.

    Just get crystal sscs6 components. They will sound much better than anything on your list and can be had for around 160

    Although MB Quart has changed hands, they still make a quality product. For about $200, you can snag a PCE-216 component set on eBay. They're excellent speakers, and you might want to give them a look.
