    Decisions, decisions...MB quart, JL Audio, diamond audio

    i have a budget of 150$ and will be powering the chosen component set with a US Acoustics 4065 ..so thats 65 watts a piece or 160 watts if i bridge it..

    im leaning towards the MB Quart PVM216 or JL Audio TR650-CSI or Diamond Audio D363.5

    looking for an SQ set up, anyone who has exeperience with the comps please chime in..or recommend something proven in that price range.

    Re: Decisions, decisions...MB quart, JL Audio, diamond audio

    There are quite a few options...

    Polk MM6501
    JL c2-650
    JBL MS-62....once upon a time you could get them for around 150-200...
    Also look into CDT....lots of options out there man.

    JL is not too bad...a lot of people will quickly bash JL for some odd reasons...there's definitely a love hate things going on (there's a reason for this)
    JL makes good gear...do not listen to the HATERZ - but at times...price can be a whole diff story lol...but that's the case with anything high end.

    Prob best to go listen to some of these speakers....but that's not always possible.

    I have a new set of Diamond 6.5" convertible components that go for $150. They are not proven yet to be strong performers. The Clarion SRQ line comes in around that price. There's a review on Talk Audio of SRE-1722S, which is the European equivalent of SRQ-1722S.

    For other options the budget should be increased by $50-100, in my opinion.

    Re: Decisions, decisions...MB quart, JL Audio, diamond audio

    The Diamonds are pretty bright with their aluminum dome tweets. I have the 6x8 set. They are too bright for my taste. I used to like the bright MB Quarts tweeters when I was much younger. As I got older, I prefer more mellow soft/silk dome. The cross-over is very beefy, and you can decrease the tweet by -3db, but that still isn't enough in my application. The mid does pretty good.
