    4 Inch Component Speakers : Lots of Choices

    I am putting 4" components in a BMW E90 and trying to pick what to go with. My budget is $200 for a set.

    These are what I have picked out so far:
    Rainbow SLX 210 Deluxe
    MMats Pro 4.0
    CDT Audio CL-41/22

    I would really like to go with the CDTs if the improvement to the Rainbows or MMats is not dramatic. Does anyone have any opinions on any of these speakers?

    edit:
    I just found these:
    MTX TX4001
    For $91, how would they compare to the list above?

    I just found these too, so it is down to the CDTs or these DLS Reference PS4s:

    You can never go wrong with anything MMats makes. But I'm a little bit of a nut-hugger

    Re: 4 Inch Component Speakers : Lots of Choices

    I've run Rainbow and DLS....in general, the rainbows are a little brighter than the dls. But I'd highly recommend listening to the different sets (if possible) to see what kind of sound you like best. I once bought speakers based on reviews and recommendations without actually hearing them, and when I finally bought and installed them I HATED the sound. I kept improving the install (more deadening, etc.) and tried running active with eq-ing and t/a, but could never get them to sound good to my ears.

    Re: 4 Inch Component Speakers : Lots of Choices

    I ended up ordering the DLS set and hope that they sound good to my ears as well as my girlfriend whom I bought them for. My friend ordered these 4" Polk Coaxials and these Polk Tweeters for a car he is doing which happens to be almost the exact same as the car I am installing the DLS's in. He keeps telling me I wasted my money and the Polks are going to sound "so much better". Does anyone think his claims could be some what right? I feel that the setup I'm doing SHOULD sound better overall.

    Re: 4 Inch Component Speakers : Lots of Choices

    Don't worry guys I did my research. A quick Google search and its pretty obvious not to go through them. I used Sonic Electronix and actually had a huge issue with back orders but after 2 phone calls they fixed everything. But could you give your opinion on my question from before about my friends Polk setup?

    Re: 4 Inch Component Speakers : Lots of Choices

    The DLS's are nice.The Polk coax are no big deal but I think the Polk DB100 tweeter is as good as the DLS tweeter.But they should be for what they retail at.I put a set of Polk componenets in my daughters car with that tweeter and I was impressed with it-the woofers were nothing to write home about though.What do you have for midbass after the 4 inchers.
