    Also alot of fake Hertz on eBay.

    Another option to look at if you can find them is a set of Eclipse SC6500's on eBay.

    Are they nice sounding speakers? There is one guy selling display models in acrylic displays...He wants $60 shipping...LOL They are a little low on the wattage too, so I am a little hesitant. My PPI is a clean amp, but I am concerned about that.

    I have 2 pairs. They are great speakers. Midbass is solid and the tweeters are extremely similar to the LPG25NFA tweeters that are used in $1000 comp sets by Blues Audio. Wattage is a recommendation not a requirement. You could probably send them more power if you were careful. You can also dial your gains on your amps back and send them less power.

    Cool....Gotta check them out. I never dime a power amp, and I'm only at 80 watts on the PPI. I just know there is so much BS with ratings nowadays.....I just want crystal clear, natural sound...

    For that price range and if depth is an issue, the sundown SA6.5CS comps are great at that price range. The are pretty shallow and have an excellent build quality to them. The crossovers have jumpers in them also so that you can adjust the power to the speakers by it. Nice feature
