    Hertz HSK 165 vs. Rainbow Germaniums

    Well, I see good prices on both, so I was wondering how the 2 compare, sound wise, as well as which one would go active easier, basically the pluses and minuses of each set. Any info is appreciated.

    The rainbow germs only got a 68/100 in car audio mags review, so I'd go with the hertz. I'm gettin the mlk 165's and if you pm me I'll be able to hook u up with someone that sells them, with warranty!

    Re: Hertz HSK 165 vs. Rainbow Germaniums

    Ignore that review. There was definately something wrong with that review. If you heard a set of Germaniums for yourself you'd reconsider that thought.

    As for the two, I say Germaniums. I've had the Germaniums for awhile before I upgraded. And yes I've had lots of ear time with the HSK's, and did several installs with them as well. The Cal25 silk dome tweeter on the Germanium set is much smoother in my opinion than the HSK's. The midbass on the HSK's are a bit more punchy though. But once again if I had to choose between the two, it'll be the Germs set hands down.

    Listen to him Josh... The Germs have nothing to do with that horrible review... If you heard them in person, you'd be singing a different tune. Have you heard HSKs in person?

    although i havent ever used these speakers, i would too agree, dont listen to those garbage reviews.

    where is this opinion coming from? oh i dont know...maybe that time when they "reviewed" a stereo integrity mag and only gave it 300w (rated at 900w) but yet they will give random rockford subs and others double their rms? IMO, if you dont pay them extra, you dont get a good review...
