    3 Comp sets to choose from

    I think I have narrowed it down to 3 sets of components.

    230 watts rms x 2 on my Clarion 4 channel

    Listening:
    Rock (Linkin Park, Staind, Breaking Benjamin, ect...)
    Rap (I listen to rap from time to time)

    I like it loud.

    Going in a Chevy Silverado ext z-71. In the doors and Ill be sound deadening.

    So in my price range I found the following.

    Diamond Audio HEX S600
    MB Quart QSD216
    Hertz HSK265

    Any help?



    07 black Yamaha V-Star FI 1300. 08 GMC Sierra QC SLE2 Texas Edition
    Rockford Fosgate 3Sixty.1, Focal Utopia Components, Focal K2P Components with Digital Designs T1 Tweeters, Audiopipe AQX-360.4, Audiopipe 3001D

    I had a set of Diamond D6 5.25 with a memphis 75x4 brigged doing 230x2 and they got loud, but they sounded a hell of alot better by running them active and didn't get much quieter either.

    HEX's kinda stink IMO,tweets arent as good as they used to be and they have zero midbass...
    Easy to out do a HEX at half the price.
    HERTZ hard to find,I think only 1 dealer around
    MB's,very popular around here,try em out.....

    6spdcoupe can give you a deal on some hertz i'm sure. I'd probably go with those, not so much because i've had experience with them, but because i haven't had great experiences with MB or Hertz

    Re: 3 Comp sets to choose from

    I got someone on the board to get me a set of Hertz, so thats not a problem. The Hertz set is more cash than the QSD's.

    Im leaning towards the MB Quarts.

    Anyone know if either gets louder than the other? I like my music and full tilt. Yes, losing my hearing.

    Re: 3 Comp sets to choose from

    anyone talking about the hex's in a bad way are idiots...i have used both the hex's and the mb's... The diamond hex line is the best bang for the buck out there on any comp's... I personally love them and sold my germs to go back to the hex's....
    if your looking for loud go with the hex's I used to run MB all the time but then they started blowing mid bass drivers like there was no tomorrow... so i switched to diamond that was back in like 02-03 and i have yet to find a set of speakers that will come close... The diamonds have midbass unlike everyone always claims... (most of them have never ran them) its all gonna be up to you in the end but look into it more before you believe all these fanboys hating on diamond....
