    The Perfect 2-Way Component Speaker Set

    It seems to me that the perfect 2-way component speaker set would meet the following criteria:
    • Strong midbass presence
    • Warm, natural midrange
    • Smooth tweeter response - not too harsh, not too bright
    So what component set rises to the challenge? All of the components I have listened to are lacking in one or the other of those areas. Midrange *****, tweeters too bright, midbass completely non-existent.

    I've yet to personally listen to the Alpine SPX-177A components or the Boston Acoustics Rally series RC620 components. Maybe they are what I am searching for.

    I know that looks certainly aren't everything... but the picture of that Koda midbass driver on the Adire website looks, well... rough. Are they really that ugly?

    Again, looks don't always = quality or performance. I realize that.

    I'd love to listen to a Koda set... that's going to be the real deal breaker for me. As for ugly, I can always hide them behind some grilles.

    Yea, don't the Stangs have the front speakers behind the door panel anyway?

    come on now...i highly doubt that they engineered the kodas for factory door panels. what can you do to prepare for that? i dunno....i find it hard to believe that one will sound better in door panels than another. but they are really nice comps regardless...
