    3 brands to battle, 1 will be victorious

    Hey Guys,


    I'm building a system, and need some expert input... my knowledge lacks on this subject.

    I'm building a system, and I'm looking for some sq. Loudness is not a main objective, but a little hiphop on Friday nights will happen. Basically, just looking for a good all-around set.

    My set-up so far consists of:

    Amp: Elemental Designs Nine.4 (Seems to be well under-rated) http://www.edesignaudio.com/product_...products_id=46


    Sub: Elemental Designs 13ov.2 dual 4 to go in sealed at 2 ohms (I think). http://www.edesignaudio.com/product_...products_id=35

    For components I'm looking at:

    1. jl xr comps

    2. The Image Dynamics CTX65CS
    http://www.woofersetc.com/p6201/CTX6...ker-System.htm

    3. Elemental Designs 9.65i
    http://www.edesignaudio.com/product_...roducts_id=617


    I'm not fond of harsh highs, or any harshness in general. So I'm thinking that will cut out the jl's, as they have an alum. tweet?

    I hear the 9.65i's have great midbass presence. Same with the ID's. I think I'm leaning towards either the 9.65i's or ID's. Any other suggestions would be good also.

    My price point is sub 200. The 9.65i's are 225, which is more than I want to spend unless they are significantly better than the ID's.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks!
