    for 500 if your willing to go active.. the CDT ES-07 and the CDT DRT26 tweeters... very good set..

    also AE has some mid ranges and someone has some xbl^2 tweeters as well i'm dying to hear...



    knowledge is powerful but imagination is exponentially powerful..

    experience is key!! otherwise life is boring, uneventful and pointless..

    sub amps RD audio 1750s(SD3500 when i sell the RDs)---better audio prototypes
    mids CDT ES-6--tweeters CDT ES-02
    comp amp SD sax100.4D(for sale looking for a zapco 1000.4)
    deck..execlon x991

    Re: Diamond Vs Rainbow

    The germs and diamond hex's are nothing even close to alike. I have had both. I loved the Hexs and hated the germs. the germs wont get loud no matter how much power you toss them... They will just sit there and sound quite decent. The Hex's have the capability of making your ears bleed they also happen to sound good.... Lots around here love to bash diamond for some odd reason... There is a huge "hate the hex boner" that has been around this site for years now... I know listening to both sets probably isnt an option for you but it really depends on what type of sound your going for...
