    Icon11 $1000 to spend: What speakers to buy?

    I've got 350 rms x 2 to play with, and like everyone else here, I love upgrading, but I want to go all out on this one.

    I'm going to save up about a grand, and buy some new speakers. They will be ran PASSIVE, for now.

    Any suggestions?

    My preference would be towards Focal K2's or Morel. Maybe even the JBL 660 GTI.

    Problem is you HAVE to give them a ton of power.

    and those BA's are really OLD. even states they are from 04 in the title.


    Another brand to look into is Image Dymanics the XS line.

    the Hertz Mille are really nice as well as any of the Morel stuff.

    You might also check out Hybrid Audio.

    Do you have enough mounting depth for the Rainbow Powerline CS set?

    350 would be enough.

    their an older model. But I love the Z6's.

    I remember when I was first looking for my second system () i went to Magnolia Hifi, a local store that stock Bostons, and asked the guy (he knew a lot, they all did) if I could *actually* listen to them (i.e. not off 50 watts so dumbshits don't hurt them) and GOD ****!

    but they were 1000 dollars back then (at a retail store) so I was drooling.
