    Help me choose (Scanspeak/Dynaudio/Fostex)

    Hello

    I got a new car (2009 Megane) and am about to install some stuff in it.

    What I have:

    RF 3sixty.2 (wanna keep the OEM HU)
    Mcintosh MC440 (2x100 and 4x50)

    The sub is not an issue right now, wanna pick the speakers first.

    So, the contenders:

    ----------1-----------

    mid-high level component
    http://www.woofersetc.com/index.cfm?...roduct_id=1139
    for 500$

    ----------2-----------

    funky diy setup:

    http://www.madisound.com/catalog/pro...roducts_id=286
    http://www.madisound.com/catalog/pro...roducts_id=282

    Just to see if it works, but it might! and it's cheap at 300$

    ----------3----------

    and some higher level ones, which are the most expensive at 800$.

    http://www.madisound.com/catalog/pro...oducts_id=8512
    http://www.madisound.com/catalog/pro...oducts_id=1479


    So, what will it be?

    Things to consider:

    I will not be having any builds, so expect silly off axis angles.
    I will not be deadening the doors (they're actually deadened pretty well as is, but I won't deaden them no matter what)

    What's the point of dropping all that money if you're just gonna do a half-assed build? I smell troll.

    I'm not gonna do a half-assed build, I'm not going to do a build at all. It's a brand new car and I don't want to alter it too much at this point. I had some nice builds in my previous car:

    So no, I'm not a troll.

    Very nice work. If you're really not gonna do a build, I'd just get a nice comp set and call it a day.

    Hmm, well, aren't those dyns a nice comp set?

    Edit:

    I have a question, can a sub/woofer be cut at 200hz LPF and a mid at 200 HPF?

    I wouldn't LPF a sub higher than 80 cycles.

    Why not Morel comps since they are made in your home country?

    Seems you should be able to buy them locally cheaper than shipping other highend brands from the US.

    Already had 'em, looking for something else now They were pretty sweet yeah ^^ Plus I can get them for the price of 1 at madisound, but I'm not sure they're worth that much anyway.
