    Comps w/ strong midbass & smooth highs

    I'm looking for a new set of 6.5" comps to replace my Rainbow Dream Lines. They need to have good midbass, smooth highs, and be able to handle 150wRMS. They'll be installed in a well damped/deadened door.

    My spending limit is $250 and so far my list of possibilities looks like this -

    1. DLS Ultimate UPS

    2. CDT EF-61FG w/ TW-25 tweets

    3. Boston Acoustics SL60

    4. Infinity Kappa Perfect 6.1

    5. Diamond Audio D661s

    6. Phoenix Gold Xenon 6.5

    Which would be a better choice? Thanks.

    Re: Comps w/ strong midbass & smooth highs

    First off, the infinity kappas, and the pg xenons have 0 midbass, as for the rest I cannot make a claim. I do however reccomend the phoenix gold rsd comps for explosive midbass, and smooth highs.

    Yep, RSd65cd. Or if you can afford around $280, there's the Rainbow SLC 265 Kick.

    Nope

    [edit] yes, it does now.

    Why oh why would you recommend Pyramid speakers from a shady internet photography store (likely one of those NY/Brooklyn scammers)?

    Yes I believe very much that install plays a big role. I spent days soundproofing my car and making sure I built a good foundation for my system.
