Suprisingly enough, even though Jacob's not marketing the comps as a SQ set (he's working on prototyping his SQ line soon), they've been great performers.

    I personally love my MS comps and once I have everything deadened and in place, you'll see a review for mine. So far, let me just say even my wife who's a car audio noob and not an audio snob could notice the massive jump in clarity and separation of notes. We heard basslines nonexistent in songs we'd previously heard, too, which brings a permanent smile to my face.

    As with all speakers, though, your install is going to be key, so keep that in mind. Are you planning on doing this yourself?
    Ill be getting them installed at a shop. I'm still somewhat of a noob so I'm really taking in what everyone here is saying. I appreciate it

    To be honest, I think you might actually end up doing a better job than most shops out here in LA. The only one I'd really recommend is Sound Man in Santa Clarita and they're ridiculously expensive. There's supposed to be another good installer close to West Hills that's on Hybrid's dealer list, but can't remember the name. Point is that you could save yourself several hundred doing this yourself, come out with a better product, and have the knowledge and pride that only DIY projects provide. I did my own comps install for the first time ever this weekend and, through what I've seen here and on DIYMA, am pretty sure that I wouldn't get a result this good without having spent a couple hundred in install costs. I can use that money for deadener

    What shop? Unless it's a good, known shop, do this yourself. Read and learn how to do a proper install, as any of these speakers recommended will sound like poo without a good install. A decent install job isn't that hard, just may take some time and education.

    Re: Advice on SQ Component Speakers. Price Range $150-$300

    After doing research those jbl-ms52 have been getting the best reviews, especially considering the best bang for your buck. I will be amping them, so far im looking into getting a ppi phantom amp for them. I still have the boston acoustic amp that i used for the sr50s. But i might just rebuy the tweeters and throw those in another car or in the back seat and continue using that amp for those

    btw, I will probably try installing these myself after you guys' suggestion. My tweeter blew out in less than a yr and i took it to get done at a place. I'll do some hw and do it myself this time

    OP If you are limited one mounting depth my Diamonds would be a good option...

    Re: Advice on SQ Component Speakers. Price Range $150-$300

    bumping this thread because I am looking for new front stage in the same budget. I'm after a warmer sound, hate harsh highs. how would I determine out of those speakers listed above, which ones would sound "warm" and which ones would be more detailed/brighter etc. ?
