    need input on 6.5 component's

    I'm thinking its time to upgrade the door speakers on my 06 Gto. I'm ready for more highs. I've been out of the car audio stuff for a little while now. Not to sure what to get. I have some ideas. In my camaro I have the old MB quart premiums. But I think I'm wanting to get away from the titanium tweeters. I like them but, need a change in sound. I listen to mainly hard rock / metal. But I do also listen to some country and 80's and rap. I have Polk rtiA's for home stuff. I really like the sound of those but for metal, they can't seem to pull it off for me. The closest shop in town that I can listen to speakers has jl, Memphis, focal and something else.

    Asking what I should consider. Prolly around the 350-450 range.

    I have a set of BNIB Hertz HSK 165's for $325 shipped. Can't beat them for the price. I listen to the same types of music and that's why I got these. They are crazy loud while still keeping all the fidelity and clarity you want. Just need to make sure you have an amp that can push them. No point in running them without an amp

    There are a lot of good speakers in that range, Morel, PHD, Focal, and JL. I would recommend going through the reviews section here and checking out some reviews on some speakers to see if people feel they fit your needs.

    I've been reading about cdt and image dynamics. Few years back I was thinking about picking up some rainbow germs. The bad thing is there isn't any dealers here for any of those.

    If you like Image Dynamics, I have a component set that is the mids from the CX64 set, the $300 set and the tweeters and crossover from a set of Alpine SPX17PRO's. Sounds amazing and loud also. I can do these for $200 shipped

    Maybe take a look into Morel and PHD, I've always enjoyed Morel components, and PHD has yet to let me down, I also won't benefit from you buying a set since you are outside my dealer area.

    Id do something custom for that price.
    pair of Dayton audio reference 6.5s and some vifa tweeters with some Dayton xovers..



    knowledge is powerful but imagination is exponentially powerful..

    experience is key!! otherwise life is boring, uneventful and pointless..

    sub amps RD audio 1750s(SD3500 when i sell the RDs)---better audio prototypes
    mids CDT ES-6--tweeters CDT ES-02
    comp amp SD sax100.4D(for sale looking for a zapco 1000.4)
    deck..execlon x991

    Re: need input on 6.5 component's

    Thanks for the input... I think I've narrowed it down to the hsk 165 or the image dynamics xs65? Any input on similarities or differences between them. Or maybe what music they perform better with?

    Also check out the Hybrid Audio Unity series or the Claurus series components. Amazing sounding speakers and some of our biggest sellers.
