    High end coaxial/braxial style speakers?

    I'm planning out the system for my standard cab silverado and need a solid front stage. While I realize it's a bit of a handicap, I'm pretty intent on keeping the interior 100% stock in appearance so I'm looking for a set of coaxial/braxial/point source style speakers to fit in the stock locations. The amps/subs will be behind the seats so the only visible giveaway that there is anything altered will be the 800PRS in the dash.

    I was initially set on the Image Dynamics XS65's, but I've found a few others that might work well for my setup so I'd like opinions on these and/or any others that should be considered. I'm looking for a strong midbass with a smooth laid back tweeter. I haven't decided for sure on the amp, but I'm looking very hard at the DLS ultimate and Audison LRx series. I will more than likely run the speakers active also.

    So, here's what the top of my list looks like...

    1- Image Dynamics XS65
    2- DLS UX26
    3- Morel Integra Ovation XO
    4- JL Audio C5-650x

    Unfortunately, there are only a handful of of shops within driving distance of me and they only carry lower end stuff for the most part so my decision will be highly dependent on the opinions I recieve on here.

    The JL was on there somewhat as an afterthought actually. I like their amps, but I've never been all that big of a fan of their speaker line. The C5 was added since I saw that it used a silk tweeter. Figured I'd see if anyone had anything good to say about them.

    I've been wanting to try ID for awhile now, but as a brand I would generally consider Morel and DLS to be on a higher level at least from my limited experience. The one big advantage going for the DLS speakers is that I'm leaning heavily towards the DLS amps and I have a dealer right up the road from me so I may be able to work out some sort of deal on them if I purchased the entire setup from them.

    This is what my friend has in his silverado as well. Not sure model # though.

    boston pro's. They are able to be mounted like a coaxial or a comp set.

    ID XS comps would do very nicely.
