    Help with choosing componets<450$

    I am looking for a new/used set of components for around $450 or less that would get the most out of a Sundown Sax-100.4D amp. I am looking for components that will get "LOUD" to hang with a 15" RE-XXX sub, but not distort doing it. I would prefer a set that would get "LOUD" without sounding ******, than one that one with not as much output but better SQ.

    I have been doing some research and a lot of speakers fit in the price range. I just don't know which ones would be best for my aforementioned goal to get loud while still sounding good.
    Here are some speakers that fall into the price range, feel free to suggest any speakers that u think would better suit my needs.

    Focal KR2/K2P ----used or ebay

    Morel TEMPO 6 ----200$(ebay)
    Morel DETECH OVATION 6 ----400$(ebay)
    Morel HYBRID OVATION II 6 ----find used
    Morel Elate ----find used(saw some for $500 ebay yesterday)

    Rainbow CMX ----300$ online
    Rainbow Germ ----find used
    Rainbow Profi Vanadium Line ----find used

    Hertz MLK 165(MILLE) ----find used ($400-$450)
    Hertz HSK 165(HIGH ENERGY) ----$250 online

    Hybrid clarus ----find used

    ReAudio XXX ----$320 ebay'

    BOSTON PRO ----find used or online
    Boston SPZ60 ----find used or online

    since you have a 4channel amp why not go with raw driver?
    it will be hard to have a single comp set keep up with a XXX

    Depending on the vehicle, why not just do a set of horns and a good midbass. Loud as f**k and sound **** good doing it.

    Re Audio xxx

    Boston SPZ60

    Out of all those I've listened to, I would suggest either the Dotech Ovation 6 or the MLK165. The Dotech gives great output and the tweeter is a little more laid back. The MLK165 gets LOUD as HELL but and the tweeter can get a little aggressive at times in the small chamber. Good thing is if you can fit it, you can use the large chamber. The focals are nice but a little sharp for my taste. Bostons are a well balanced set but they are like that character on a video game that has avg everything. Nothing stands out too much but its a solid performer. The rainbow germs IMHO have a great tweeter but lack midbass compared to some of the others listed. The vanadiums have a nice tight mid and great tweet but lack a little low end umph.

    Hope this helps.

    May not be the size your looking for but my Old School Kicker Resolution set would get as loud if not louder then most of those listed... People overlook them becasue the name. Just check out the build quality in my FS thread.
