    6.5" coaxials that can get loud and handle decent power

    Any recommendations for good 6.5" coaxials that can handle 100+ Wrms and stay loud and clear?

    With 100w RMS, why not go components?

    Probably on a budget, and generally, Coaxial is cheaper than component...

    also might not have cutouts for comps...remember, not *everybody* does

    I've had good luck with Boston coaxials, they've worked fine for me. I'm sending them around 125W per side.

    either the pioneer rev series TSD-170r (rev is their top of the line series) or diamond m36i's. both are great speakers

    Re: 6.5" coaxials that can get loud and handle decent power

    in which case, why are you getting components?

    theres an easy compromise- get a pair of covertibles- diamond cm3's, cdt braxials, soundstream CONV series..... crossover is built into the driver



    rainbow....homemade sounds best
    DYNAUDIO E S O T E C....Mobile Fidelity

    Panasonic Vacuum Tube
    TRU Technology SSLD6
    TRU Technology STEEL S44 & S500

    if you are going for a decent set of components, look into the focal 165a.

    No components, just coaxes.

    I like Boston Acoustics stuff a lot, but I don't know about the performance or reliabilty of any of their newer speakers.

    What about Image Dynamics? I hear Rainbow has some good speakers, too.

    Anyone else?

    BA stuff, including the FX and RM line, are pretty good for coaxials...I would recommend them.
