    Rainbow components.

    Would this be a nice set up. I havent dealt with Rainbow components before. Any input on them will be apreciated. I desided to go all out with Rainbow on this set up.

    Front stage.

    http://www.woofersetc.com/index.cfm?...roduct_ID=7046

    Rear Stage.

    http://www.woofersetc.com/index.cfm?...roduct_ID=7048

    Amp for components.

    http://www.woofersetc.com/index.cfm?...roduct_ID=7093

    And if I feel like buying this I might get it too.

    http://www.woofersetc.com/index.cfm?...roduct_ID=7095

    Will be purchasing all of this when my tax money gets here.

    Any input would be helpfull.

    Problem is, it is hard to use somebody else's ears as your own. What I like, you may not, and vice-versa. If I were you, I would wait until you've had a chance to listen to some different setups, go to a big comp that does sq, you'll here a lot of different stuff.

    Re: Rainbow components.

    I see you live in LA, there have got to be a bunch of good caraudio stores around you.

    Edit: or at least ones that have some higher end gear.

    Re: Rainbow components.

    Hey man! I'm running a set of the Profi Vanadium Kick mids with the CAL27 tweeters in an active setup(although one CAL27 crapped out on me, so I've got a CAL25 titan in it's place for the moment).

    I'd be happy to meet up with you and give you a demo sometime, so you could get a better idea. I'm in South Orange County, around San Luis Obispo.
