    budget setup

    well i took out my 6x9s and got my money back because they wasnt quite gettin the job done. I have a 96honda accord and need something that will give me the loud clear words and such. I really dont want my bass draining out my words. I only have 130-150 to spend. What do you guys recommend me getting. Please post websites so i can take a look at them. I was on thezeb.com and looked at CDT classic component set for 149. but i dont know exactly whats the best for my money. But 6x9s arent an option anymore

    The CDT's will be the best for the money. Another option for less would be the infinity reference 6000cs comp set. Its less then $110 on ikesound.com. Here is the link.

    Re: budget setup

    another option is the Infinity Kappa 693.5i 3-way.
    they are $149 here http://www.woofersetc.com/product.as...5&1=306&3=1001

    and yet another option for less money is the Infinity reference 3-way 9603i.
    $96.99 here:
    http://www.woofersetc.com/product.asp?0=305&1=306&3=980

    and yet another option is the Kappa 2 way for $119 here: http://www.woofersetc.com/product.as...5&1=306&3=1000

    another idea would be the MB Quart Discus 3 way, $109 here:
    http://www.woofersetc.com/product.as...7&1=358&3=1036

    another idea is the JL TR series 3-way, $109 here:
    http://www.woofersetc.com/product.as...4&1=316&3=1052

    you said you didn't want bass in these speakers, a good idea for you would be a set of crossovers as well.

    dei viper 140 @ sounddomain if you like a smooth detailed sound. cdt classics for warm, laid back sound.

    Re: budget setup

    I would stay away from the new Infintiy References, they use a textile dome tweeter, and i leave the **** car with a headache everytime even without the music loud. The tweeters are extremely harsh (S's hurt as well as some T's). The mid ranges are decent though, better than the previous ones, but the old references had silk dome tweeters which i feel are much nicer. Though everything i said is just preference, if you are looking for soft highs get a silk dome tweeter, stay away from anything metal.

    Re: budget setup

    Well doing a little search, i came up with the following.
    If money comes in like expected, the CDT cl off thezeb. com i think for 149

    Another option....MBQuart DSC 216 frome ikesound.com for 116

    Do you think the MBQuarts will get the job done? Keep in mind, im on a real tight budget

    I greatly dislike MB Quarts tweeters, as i said earlier not a fan of harsh tweets. But its all personal preference.
    Polk makes some pretty decent components relatively cheap, i suggest you look into them.
