    Icon32 Options or opinions?

    Sorry for the doucher "what to do" post but im at a crossroads for which components to use. Ive been doin tons of research and have come up with a few viable options.

    Image dynamics CTX65CS (was lookin at doin 2 sets if these)
    Hertz ESK165/65L
    Memphis 15-MCS6
    JL Audio C2-650

    They will be powered with a SAX-100.4D
    They will be the FS with fill provided by an set of 4x6 of whichever company I go with on HU power
    Depending on price there will probably be 2 sets up front otherwise Ill just power the rears

    Open to opinions or options, any help appreciated.

    ID CTX65CS or Eclipse SC6500's. Very similar quality and sound. Id put them over everything you have listed. The Hertz are good, but more expensive for a non existent quality and SQ upgrade.

    Re: Options or opinions?

    Really? Ive read good reviews on the hertz but they def seem to be a cult brand, lots of theyre the be all end all kinda things. Ive read tons of great reviews on the ID's and they are the most affordable which was surprising. They look to be built pretty hefty and my biggest things is I dont want a horribly bright tweet however my music tastes vary from lamb of god to young jeezy to bob marley so I need a well rounded and clear set and ive read they have a pretty decent mid bass sound which is a plus.

    Re: Options or opinions?

    ^^^^^^ unless you are looking for extremely loud,1 cmp set should be enough on that sundown.
    look into your install.if you place those tweeters in the pillars on axis or until get a good sound stage you should bhe loud enough.
    you can use that amp to bi-amp those ID comps.
    add deadener,placement & aiming,tuning,EQ if you have one,etc.......
