    Suggestions please - 6.5" comps in the $700-$1300 range.

    Quick rundown: I am looking for recommendations here, and explanations of your pick are greatly appreciated. This is my criteria
    -I am looking for a set of 6.5" 2-way comps to run passively with a JL 300/2 powering them.
    -They *MUST* be 6.5"! I had considered rainbow power line CS, but they are far too large and would require destroying my doors.
    -Must stand up to extended use at high volume

    I was running a set of JL 6.5" ZR components, powered by a JL 300/2. I play my music very loud, often for extended periods of time. The tweeters blew, most likely due to my abusive listening practices. In the new set I want equal or better output - both in terms of detail and volume. I like it loud. Let me say it again LOUD. For sub, I run a 12" SI mag with a cadence 1000.1. Sub is in a sealed fiberglass box in the wheel well.

    Just a quick note: I had my gain set just a hair under 55%, no 'bass boost' or anything silly. I had a high pass filter at 80hz, and the woofers still play just fine - just the tweeters are blown. H/U volume was never turned up past 2/3. I also have my entire car extensively sound-deadened. If there are any questions about install or settings please just PM me.



    I haven't found the perfect stereo yet, but I'll keep searching!
    I have lots of references, but not on this site - contact me to ask about them.

    I personally don't think any set of comps is worth that much money.

    good advice. And learn to listen for distortion/crackling, so you don't blow another set.

    Also you might consider going active with that budget as you'll be able to tune the xovers/slopes, etc.. to your liking and hopefully make things last longer.

    I should have specified my plans for the woofers/xovers from the JL set. I'm considering using as rear fill since I don't have any right now. Passengers might appreciate hearing vocals when i have the top down.

    Also, I don't want to go active as I don't have room for the extra equipment. I drive a 2002 mustang GT convertible - my trunk is incredibly tiny - I only have room for one extra amp of relatively small size.



    I haven't found the perfect stereo yet, but I'll keep searching!

    My Diamond d971 are ridiculously loud, I have a sundown 100.2 bridged to each set for the last 2 years, and they still going strong. They use a 7 inch woof, not much bigger than a 6.5. They been disco for over a year now though, but they have a replacement model, the HexPro
