    Need loud 6.5 comps with high power handling

    Just got done blowing my Focal Access 6 1/2 comps. I was throwing 200 watts rms at each side. They didnt seem to get that loud either. I liked the midbass from them, hated the tweeters.

    Im looking for some comps that will obviously sound good, handle the power, and be loud. My problem before with these Focals were I just couldnt hear them so I kept cranking and cranking.

    I was looking into the following

    OZ Audio
    Boston Acoustic Pro's


    I dont have much to spend. Who doesnt, right? I just spent money on the Focals, so im rather broke.

    I would suggest adding some loud rear fill, so you don't have to abuse your comps so badly...

    not so much on the rear fill.

    I just need a good set of comps that arent overpowered by two sealed 12's in a truck. Cant see why its so hard

    any decent comps will be fine. i have type r comps that are plenty loud for 2 12's and they only get about 100 rms. can't say i like the type r comps sound much, but they're loud enough. i do like the alpine type x components though.

    How about buying 2 sets of comps instead of continuing to blow 1 set at a time?

    any comp set that ive ever heard that can handle 200 rms or even 150 definitely got louder than I needed them to
