    Um.. welcome to audio. I'm pretty sure our beloved hobby has always been like this. You're just too new to know that.

    I have Neo Pro 6.5s and Selenium ST350s in my doors. They're not distorted at all.. just because they're pro audio doesn't mean they lack what it takes to sound decent. I'm not claiming SQ by any means but they're far from sounding bad.

    Not new at all. Just never really paid attention to stuff I didnt care to hear. Where I'm from the people that have stuff like that are not going to any of the events I would go to. If they did go they would show up one time and not come back.

    I'm in the mid to high 150's on music(not peak hold) and I have no PA speakers what so ever in my truck and it sounds very clear and plenty loud to keep up with the wall. With that said, I do have 5 sets of components lol.

    Well aren't you special

    Perhaps you should try it, so you'd know first hand how it sounds, what works, and what doesn't....

    Can't be, I run PA stuff which can't be loud and clear sounding. Aren't you reading the responses in here LOL

I'm throwing another set in to replace the 4x6 in the back because they aren't giving me any of the rear fill.
    300watts on some 6.5" coax's isn't exactly high power to me. I have around 8-9kw for mids/highs.

    I listen to mine all day long to/from shows, just not a full volume. Sounds very good on all types of music. And honestly if you didn't know it was PA stuff you wouldn't be able to tell the diff.

    If it sounded like *** it would NOT be in my car. Pretty much why I got rid of the Boston Pro60's in the wife's ride, just couldn't stand the tweeters and mids had no midbass. Running PA mids and AQ supertweeters now and it sounds WAY better.

    8-9kW on mids/highs???? Either you have some REALLY inefficient drivers, or you have some REALLY bad tinittus.

    Re: So is it cool now

    I have yet to hear any ride with pa gear that sounds good to me. Now I am not saying there is not one out there that will not sound good but I have not yet heard one.

    Like that one guy that posted the vid of the "loudest camaro in the world" I actually got to hear that thing.....I wanted to kill my self and that car.

    In all honesty, pa drivers are not meant for SQ, they are meant to be efficient and loud. But I could see where, if integrated properly, they could sound good in the right applications.

    Now.....if the people around here could just figure this out....

    What???? Can't hear you And yes it's not good for my ears, but I only play it loud at shows and even then only a few songs at at time before giving my ears a break.

    Most are 98dB sensitivity, some are 108, so no not all that inefficient...

    Not sure why people keep throwing out SQ as I don't recall anyone saying these were SQ builds. Although didn't Richard Clark use PA mids in the GN?

    People at concerts or small indoor venues never seem to complain about the sound and those are PA speakers.

    Have to LOL about wanting to kill yourself as I've heard SOOOOO many set ups like that, from stock speakers, coax's, comps, and PA stuff. All about the install/tuning as you know...
