I narrowed down choice of my 5.25" components for my BMW 540i, 2000 to following speakers:
ALPINE SPR-13S (type R) $127 shipped (little concerned with low efficiency 86db
MB Quart PCE-213 $135 shipped
CDT Audio CL-S50A - CDT Audio Classic $100 shipped
CDT Audio CL-51A - CDT Audio Classic $130 shipped
CDT Audio CL-51A-25 PRO - CDT Audio Classic $160 shipped (what is difference from CL-51A?)
in my previous BMW 528i, 1997 I had POLK AUDIO DB5251 5 1/4" ($120-$130) and was pretty happy, they were pretty efficient, loud but distortion free, little bit lacking in low midbass and though tweeters were not harsh at all, but now I would like to get something softer and smoother. Sure I can go with them, but would like to try something different for a change. Sure I will get sub too. What could you recommend and WHY from above list? I would like to keep price in low $100s, may be till hundred and half.
