    Need good quality components that won't break the bank

    So I'm looking into getting components now that my low-end work is completed (My subs are completely overpowering the 5.25" 35wRMS Kenwood Co-Ax's I have in the front doors). I've seen so many options out there (2-way, 3-way, active, passive, co-ax, horns, woofers, etc. etc.) and many different brands like Morel, Focal, Rainbow, PG, Polk, Boston, the list goes on and on...

    If someone could steer me in the right direction if I'm off, but I'm looking for a 2-way set of components priced under $250 that will more than keep up with my Q's, in terms of loudness, depth, clarity, etc. etc. I will be deadening my doors and properly baffling whatever speakers I plan to get just so that's out of the way. One set I have been looking at are the Morel Tempo 6's.

    I don't need a $1000 set that I can get wrapped up in the subtle nuances of Beethoven's 9th Symphony, but I'm also ready to upgrade to a set of big boys speakers that you can't walk into BB/CC and pick up.

    If it helps, I plan to modify the door panel to accept 6" midbass and I will be powering them with an Infinity amp (4 channel - 75wRMS/chan, 150wRMS bridged @ 4 ohm)

    CliffNotes: Need 2-Way comps, budget under $250, good quality, 150wRMS or less per speaker ... Thanks!

    Re: Need good quality components that won't break the bank

    Can anyone highlight some of the pros/cons of some of these speakers? I know they don't all sound the same, and some might be geared more towards loudness as opposed to quality, or vice versa.

    And most brands have so many levels of speakers I can't tell the difference.

    I heard the new AQ comps last week and was quite impressed. Got VERY loud, but weren't harsh at all.

    I just looked at those and they seem like a good set... how do you like them? What kind of music do you listen to?
