    Arc Audio ARC 6.2 components questions.

    Any thoughts on these components? Has anyone used them with a DSP and running active? Has anyone just plain used them at all? I visited a local shop near me and the guy said he has two sets, brand new, just sitting in the back... apparently people think they cost too much at a little over $300 a set (His sale price). I inspected them, held them, the tweeters and mid-woofers. They seem to be very sturdy, good quality speakers. I like the power handling specs and the tweeter size and material (28mm silk domes). What are your impressions of them?

    If you are going active why are you paying for a crossover?
    I doubt they are worth $300. The Blacks are SB Acoustic drivers with a huge markup.

    I just checked them out... still hunting speakers for the G6. You guys are around this everyday, figured you all would know best.

    Re: Arc Audio ARC 6.2 components questions.

    Those speakers in the picture are not SB Acoustics speakers or at least the SB17NRXC35-4 variant I have. The NVX/SB Acoustics SB17NRXC35-4 mid bass speakers are good sounding mid woofers with nice detail, but if you want lots of midbass than these are not for you. My Polk db6501 mid woofers I swapped these out for would murder these in mid bass, but these have a smoother, more detailed sound.

    meh heard them live, the tweeters are good, the mid is less than stellar. Gladden components completely destroy this set.

    Front stage: Two PWX 10s per door midbass only....... PRV 6MR500 midrange....... Massive CT 2 german tweeters.
    320 amp Singer alt....... 1 group 34 under the hood 6 group31 agms in the back 560 amp hours total.

    I looked at a few Gladen sets on ebay. Other than them being German, I don't really know anything about them. Looked cool though.

    the world finalist SQ cars i've heard use scanspeak relevators and illuminators but those are out of your budget. Sb acoustics satori series are also out of your budget. Seas prestige is also good but their higher end line is ridiculous pricing. Audiofrog is up there too.

    I'd say save up and really go into the beryllium tweeters route and quality mids. You are completely wasting money by buying sh*tty overpriced component sets with weak drivers. Literally just paying for overpriced crossovers you are just going to toss in the trash.

    I looked at the pricing on the Scanspeak Revelators and SB Acoustics Satori speakers... I don't see how the majority of those speakers are out of my budget. Specifically these (6" SATORI MW16PNW-4). Are these what you are saying I should run if I want good sound?
