    JL Audio ZR Evolution ZR650CSI vs Rainbow CS 275.28 Platinum Active

    hi guys i currently have 2 sets of jl audio zr evolution 650csi each pair on each door of my s2000 powered by a jl audio hd600/4 . I also have 2 selenium st350 and 2 selenium 6w4p, but i am going to sell them since iv heard them and didnt really like them compared to jls, they were very crisp clear and loud. Im actually thinking of selling the seleniums and considering the rainbows platinum version (CS 275.28 Platinum Active) but i have never heard them so how are they compared to the jl zr components?


    I was thinking to install a pair of the rainbows in the front dash (i am a big fan of dash installations ) would you guys think it would sound nice having the jls in the doors and rainbows in the dash, or should i just buy another zr set and install them in the dash?

    Bro you don't need anymore front speakers. Hell you only need one set of the ZRs. You got two sealed 10s in a trunk not a 150 db wall. If you want to do something different use one set of ZRs and get a pair of 8s for mid bass.

    Sure if that's what you want. Just relize they are pretty big and you want them up front somewhere. Just make sure you can limit them 60-400hz and the components play the rest

    Really for that sub stage two sets of strong components is way to much. You want it to blend, the fronts will walk all over those subs with just one set set up right

    i would have two options to install them since you have them you would know what is best... behind the seats on the wall, on the doors next to the zr components (not sure about its mounting depth?) or in the middle compartment between boths seats?

    Doors. You want them up front and phased the same as the components. I have them in the doors. Make sure you have the depth cause they are pretty big for mids. Brace them good and seal the doors up, which you should be doing anyway.

    yea true i will also have to fibreglass the bottom strip of my doors since they have 3.39 inch mounting depth.. i will have to talk to my installer on that one.. quick question have you used any sort of enclosure on your zr800? if so what did you tune it to?

    You don't tune or enclose mid bass. Just make sure the doors are sealed up very good and the mid range has its own airspace. Don't let your installer sell or do anything till you ask about it here.

    If its installed right it will be amazing to you. Sealed the kickers should be fine just make sure the box is on the large size of recommended. They will be your weakest link but should be fine

    If your installer is like most he will tell you to do whatever fills his pockets better. Most don't have a clue about preformance, they just stick stuff where it fits and plug it in. And try to sell you a capacitor.
