    People love those CTX65cs', man.

    I've considered the Arc FD's myself. If you buy them, be sure to come back and let us know how they sound...

    I've run those Polks, the ID, and the Alpine. Of those three, the ID are my favorite but the Alpines are nice as well. Can't speak for the Arcs though.
