    a/d/s

    I have a/d/s speakers and am considering changing. Any thoughts regarding a/d/s vs. other quality brands? Thanks!

    I had 346is but bought new panels for my 1997 AudiA4 doors since the 6 1/2s just didn't seem to work out. I'm going back to 5 1/4s and right now just have the a/d/s 235ims in the front. They were in the rear and will be going back there. I'm considering the 345ims for the front. I have previously posted other threads explaining my problem(s) in more detail. (wires, distortion) maybe you have something you could suggest. Thanks for your reply to this post.

    Also another thought,

    Find out from others about the customer service track record of the manufacturer and or retailer you're buying from.

    I say this because i have a set of Crystal Components and i fried a crossover.

    The folks at Crystal have been nothing but a nuisance--no help whatsoever, they've lied to me and try to defer my questions to retailers who, when questioned, say that Crystal should be able to handle those types of issues--which they cant and wont.

    Just a though-- learn who has good customer relations should you have a problem for any reason.



    System:

    Panasonic CQ-5310U
    Audiocontrol 4.1 eq/linedriver
    MTX LSX2 xover

    Crystal CSC60s comps
    Eclipse Aluminum 88120 12" ported 2.0cuf@28hz

    MEMPHIS BELLE STUDIO 1300D----------------------------------------

    Dont know about A/D/S but try infinity, polk momo, rainbow, adire, any top name brands. But for cheap try the infinity kappa or kappa perfect, a little bright but when you add the road noise and all it equals out.

    Re: a/d/s

    I installed A/D/S in our old show car at SSS, the 3ways blew away the MB Quarts and were a little better than the Rainbows we tried and the A/D/S were less money, great build quailty, very clean product, if you are running them, dont switch!!!!!!!!!!!!!
