    I voted Bostons because that's what I use and I love them. I have never compared them to any of the others listed, so take my recommendation with a grain of salt. At least I won't recommend speakers that I have never listened to. You may get some of that around here, lol.

    I personally have my Rainbow CMX 265's running at 200w a side bridged, and they take it great....I just have to keep the gains fairly low.

    i voted diamonds... either hex set will make you vary happy... i am running germs right now first time rainbow user... and to be honest the $200 price on the diamonds for me ears sounded better then the $450 rainbows... i would go diamond if i had to do it over again... I have ran the silk and aluminum S600 hex series comps and both were awesome... i also ran them both on 200 watts each.... frickin insane and nice... im seriously considering sellin my germs and goin back to diamonds...

    Gotta agree. First had the Diamond Motorsport M6s about 5 years ago and they ******...so I figured upgrade to the HEX series. They ****** too...hours of tuning and just could never get them to sound right.

    BUT to each his own. My ears are not yours.
