    why componets and not 3way

    don't laugh
    why do you put componets in front and not just a 3way speaker?
    what is the difference?
    i'm gonna change my garbage Pioneer ts-g1746 and i was thinking to put
    Infinity Kappa 63.5i 3way
    thought to ask before i do anything
    btw i have 2 tweeters in case a compination can be made

    -------
    a)6,5' speakers, mounting depth under 55cm, able to play till 80-100w RMS and be at millionbuy.com so i can buy them.....
    b)win at lotto c)find a nice girl that has sense of humor and has her mind inside her brain and not anywhere else......

    components are better because since they dont have a hole in the middle of the cone for the tweeter they can handle more power and have better sound quality, since you can place the tweeter away from the speaker for better imaging, and since they have a much better crossover

    With a few exceptions, component sets use higher quality drivers than coaxial type speakers. Power handling really has nothing to do with it, rather it is just quality. Most 2-way and 3-way speakers use really low quality tweeters and have almost nothing in the way of a real crossover.

    Like I said there are good coaxes out there. The middle and high end CDT Braxial series, the convertible MB Quarts and a couple of others are out there that use component drivers that are mounted together to make a coax speaker. They are only 2-way, but they have good drivers and proper crossovers and are better than any budget 2- or 3-way speaker.

    they don't say the mounting depth at their site...
    i need the mounting depth to be under 50cm and less because they won't fit in my door.... do you know any place that has their specs?
    can't order cdt - no site that has them ships here
    Infinity any good?
