    MB Quart DSE216.... dissapointed

    I just got my 6.5 inch MB Quart components installed tonight (discuss series) and I must admit i feel disapointed... I mean I know I payed too much for them but still. I must say they do not sound as well as I thought they would. I had infinity reference series coaxals running off an alpine 4ch amp (4x40rms@4ohm) and I would say that had I not wasted $175CDN on the install I would switch back. The infinities were lowder and definatly the better bang for the buck. I payed $160CDN for them last year and payed $400CDN for the MB Quarts about 2 weeks ago.

    I really really wished that I listened to the people on these forums and tried out those CDTs from the Zeb.

    I have the older model discus 5.25's, they sound lovely driven off my car's internal amp. Sorry to hear about your situation, you're positive they're installed correctly?

    Discus is the lowest line of MB's. Quit making this a cdt-only forum.
