    Price limit? CDT, Morel, Dynaudio, Focal, MB Quart, and several others make really good 3-way systems. It all depends on what you like the sound of and how much you are willing to spend.

    Re: 3 way component speakers

    i'm going to replace the factory speakers.
    i don't want to spend more than $600.
    i've heard that it is better to buy a 3 way component system like the boston than buy the MB quart PCE-210 and the PCE-164 because the boston X-over is better...
    I have a Soundstream SPL component speakers and i think they sound good...

    Re: 3 way component speakers

    Those are the top-of-the-line Bostons and mid-low end Quarts so I would hope that the Bostons have a better crossover. Any particular reason that you want a 3-way system? A 2-way system can sound just as good and sometimes better and takes less space and effort to install. For the same price as a mid level 3-way system, you can get the high-end 2-way system from a company such as CDT from the Zeb for example. Many of the really high-end companies don't make 3-way systems in their high end lines because with a good enough midrange/midbass, two speakers can cover the whole frequency range (minus the sub-bass) and fewer speakers, means fewer phasing and cancellation issues to deal with. The only real benefit of a 3 way system is when you are trying to match your high frequency set-up to a really powerful sub system and you need a dedicated midbass that will be making the tranistion between the subs and the mids. To make this work optimally, you will have to have a dedicated amp for the midbasses and cross everything actively. If you don't want to go that route, I would suggest getting a 6.5" two-way set. Your $600 will get you into a higher class of speaker in a 2-way than a 3-way and I think you will probably be happier.

    Re: 3 way component speakers

    I want a 3-way system because my car has 3-way speakers in front an a 2-way speakers in the back. Both are components. I'm going to replace the factory speakers so if i have the hole i'll use it to the speakers.
    I'm going to use my soundstream SPL 60 to the back doors and i kneed to by speakers to the front. (3-way)

    Well, in that case and in your price range, Boston Acoustics and the CDT HD-642s are probably about the best.

    Out of curiosity, what car is this in?

    Re: 3 way component speakers

    The first car that comes to my mind with three ways up front is the lexus sc400, but thats probably because I just put a system in one of those last week.

    Re: 3 way component speakers

    In quality are the Boston acoustics better than the CDT HD-642s ???
    I've got a pair of boston rally series and they sound great. I think the sound is more smooth that the Soundstream...

    I second that...CDT or Focal...if I didn't spend so much $$$ on my JL's a while back I would go with one of the two.
