    Please help me decide on 6.5" component speakers

    Going to run a set of 6.5" components bridged on my Alpine MRP-F240 (100x2@ 4 ohms).
    Budget is strict $150. Waiting to deaden doors with my AT 60 mil until it gets warmer out.
    So far my choices are:

    Massive Audio CK6X
    Hertz DSK 165
    Image Dynamics CTX-6.5cs

    Let me know if you have any better suggestions that aren't on the list. Looking for best bang for your buck with ability to get loud and have decent sq. Thanks for any input

    I've heard those are all solid choice. No experience with any of them though.

    Re: Please help me decide on 6.5" component speakers

    Have 6 votes for "other" so far. What would everyone recommend under $150 that is not on the list? Really like the looks of the JBL MS-62C but at $180 it's slightly out of my price range. Looks like I'm going to go with the DSK 165's unless someone can recommend something better.

    If you're strictly under that then I vote CTXs. Hertz lower lines never have impressed me.....matter of fact nothing Hertz has to offer besides the Mille line is really impressive IMO.

    As far as budget comps go, I've tried and auditioned a good few and I stand by the CTXs. I also liked Boston Acoustics but I'm not sure how easily they can be found now that they shut their car audio doors.

    Thanks alot for your help. Will do some research on the Boston's as well. Not really hearing anything negative about the CTX's so may go with those depending what deal I can find on them. Will let you guys know what I end up ordering.

    Just ordered the Image Dynamics CTX-6.5cs. Got a seller on ebay down to $135 on a BNIB set which I felt was a pretty good deal.
