    Need some advice here.

    I have finally narrowed down my choices on components.

    either a) infinity kappa perfect 6.5 comps,
    b) alpine type x comps
    c) diamond d661 comps.

    i have more then enough power on tap for any of them, but can not demo any for myself. which would you guys recommend for a guy that likes loud but good quality music. i feel like any of them will sound good, but more concerned about how loud they can get while still sounding good. any input would be great.

    Re: Need some advice here.

    Is that the D661S or D661A you're looking at?

    Re: Need some advice here.

    ^ Not a bad deal. I auditioned those exact speakers, but liked the Polk MMC6500's better (more midbass and tweeters seemed to blend better). I ended up going with Type X's in the long run, though.

    Tough call.

    what sub stage are you running? does the type x keep up well? i am more inclined to buy the perfects, or x's. both are within $10. never heard a bad thing about either.

    If you click the gain setting link in my sig, you'll know exactly what I run and how much power. And yes, they keep up nicely.
