Re: torn between front/rear setup, need help
Just the fronts ftw.
Rainbow SLC Kick or CMX perhaps? I know there have been quite a lot of comments posted here about them taking a clean 200+ wrms and loving it.
Or how about the 720PRS's?
I recently went and auditioned the Treo TSX comps... a little harsh in the tweeters for my tastes (they were running off 230w rms per side though), but they can be attenuated from the passives to -3 or -6 dB. Owner of Metro Audio here in Omaha said that not one set has come back because of failure from abuse, and they sell about 300 sets a month. Seems like a rock solid set for $300. He ran them through a torture test playing full range with no pass filters at very high volume for almost 200 hours contiuous... and those were the exact same comps/amp combo I auditioned. The mids didn't do so good off-axis, so I'd recommend mounting them no more than 20-30 degrees off-axis. If you can't mount the mids in pods or angle them, then I suggest you look elsewhere.
BTW, what's your budget?
