    Best 6.5" car audio woofer at any price? Koda? Seas Lotus? Dynaudio?

    Just wondering...

    I've heard Dyns and Eurosports (in my car ) and 165k2s and whatnot...so far, the Dyns are the best but I'm wondering about the others

    ^^ Never heard that particular model, but I've heard some of the Dream/Contour line series, and they were amazing.

    Okay...so let's say for under $1000 a pair, what are the best 6.5" mids?

    Yeah, just about anything from Rainbow is going to satisfy you. Of course, if the extreme cost of Rainbow speakers is prohibitive, Focal is probably a close second.

    Someday, I hope to have Rainbow Reference components in my ride. But that's probably not going to happen anytime soon.

    Woah...so the Focal Utopia mid would outperform my Eurosport mid?

    Very true. In my car, install is a given for lack of space. I moved the tweeters much closer to the mid and pointed them correctly and that improved the sound a great deal

    But with the mids, it's either that you stick them in the doors...or you leave them at home

    Sadly, the best listening position in my car is with your head resting on the shiftknob (which I'll admit I do from time to time for especially good recordings).

    Man, I wish kicks were feasible Any ideas for mids that don't mind being mounted that way?
