    The GTs cost more than $600 IIRC.

    If I remember correctly.


    I wouldn't drop that kind of cash at a unauthorized dealer. Wire, speaker adapters, harnesses, sure. Not high end car audio componets....but that is just me.

    I like Germs for a price much less than 600 and can be in your face with the metal mids...yet a smooth tweeter.

    Re: Rainbow Germs, Boston SPZ, CDT HD's, Dyanudio GT WTF to do??

    im leaning towards either the bostons because they have a metal tweeter for more detailed sound and i hear the get fn loud, or cdt's because i can get 3 ways with warrantey for price of bostons with no warranty...I just want the vocals to scream at me

    um well not pressed to sell them cause id kinda like to hear what they sound like in an ideal enviroment (not a car). bought them for $350 a year ago so prob the least id take for them would be $200. And actually their playing time was very limited because my deck was stolen so they sat unplayed for about 3 months while i had no stereo and i bent the axle on my car by hitting a curb after the deck was stolen so i sold that car and they have sat unused for about 6 months since

    From your list above, the SPZ's get my vote. But you said you want something 'in your face' you may be better off with the Boston Pro's. Don't get me wrong, the SPZ's are more than loud enough for me.. But the pro's are alot 'punchier'

    Thats funny, I think my boston pros are laid back compared to my MBQ. The bostons get loud for shure, but without the headache the MBQ used to dish out after some serious volume.
