    6.5" compos for hip hop music

    Hey guys,

    I'm lookin' for 6.5" component speakers that work great with Hip/Rap/RnB.
    I was looking into the following ones:

    Focal 165 W
    Infinity Kappa Perfect 6.1
    CDT Audio CL-61A
    Resonant Engineering RE
    Adire Audio Koda 6.1
    Elemental Designs 6500S
    Alpine SPX-177R.

    Which of these would give me nice sound and bass?
    Cause I'm addicted to BASS!

    Re: 6.5" compos for hip hop music

    i listen to reggae and rap. i have had experience with the cdt cl-61a , the RE RE series, and the alpine type r comps, i know they aretn the type x but eh. anyways out of the three imo it goes RE RE, then alpine then the cdts. the cl-61a ******, at least to me. have heard a lot of good things about the other cdt's but for the 61a...pass on those. alpine type r's=really nice. nothing really bad about them. a little more mid bass and they would be awesome. RE RE are absolutly awesome. lots of midbass, super clean tweets, BUT they can be a little harsh with stuff like lil jon. i dont remember what exact song but i think its called put you hood up. the tweets are really harsh with a song like that but with almost anything else they are awesome. now if only lil jon could actually rap instead of filin his music with so much bass that makes up for everything...wait thats a different topic. anyways about the tweets being harsh, its nothing you cant fix with a little eq'ing. from the select 3 i talked about i would go with the RE's. dotn know much about the others you listed

    how much does a pair of them RE cost?
    Also, does it need an external amp for it if we have a cheap ****** sony HU? (this is for my friend).

    Thanks, Matt

    You arent going to yield very good results from running components off your head unit.

    Re: 6.5" compos for hip hop music

    George,
    thanks a lot for your detailed answer.

    You convinced me and I'll get the RE's.
    Now, I have an Hifonics Z4000 with 2 x 100watts into 4ohms. Is that enough to make those babies pump nice bass?

    Btw I also have a Hifonics sub (bandpass w/450watts) and a Hifonics BX 1800D to power the sub. Just to let you know I don't expect wonders from the compos.

    Sell the Bandpass and get a real sub.
    You have a nice amount of watts...use them wisely

    supa c,
    I always thought bandpass is perfect for Hip Hop/Rap music!? What would you recommend instead?

    well, i listen to hip hop my self.
    Ported to 30-35HZ will be better.
    Bandpass cant hit the low lows like a low tuned ported can.

    Re: 6.5" compos for hip hop music

    Okay so ported would be the best choice. Do have a certain woofer in mind? Maybe RE's too?
