    Might have some insurance money to spend

    Well, provided that i see the insurance money for UPS loosing my new amp AND components, it looks like I have about $325 to start over. I still have my MTX 4122 that does 57 x 2 at 12.9 volts. What if i spent all the money on components and kept the same amp? I was going to get the R6A's and a rubicon II or a used eclipse amp. What would you do in the situation?

    My amp is 2 ohm stable, what about ID CXS62's? How would these perform in a door panel off closer to 100 watts?

    They would perform well.

    Do you think that's a better option than the DLS and an amp that will do around 80 x 2 at 4 ohms?

    i was choosing between those chameleons and the dls ur6's. chose the ID's because they were about 50 bux cheaper, and i wanted a more punchy aggressive sound. u could save up and try out the ur6's, i highly doubt u'd be disappointed. my ID's come in a day or two i only have about 100w for the chameleons too, so i'll let u know how that goes.

    are they going in your door panels? I'd like a response from audiolife if possible. He talks about the cxs6's a lot, but almost always recommends kicks for them. I wonder if this is for imaging purposes or if there are other sound differences there. I've heard some awesome things about the midbass from these, but a few people have claimed to hear very little low end extension. That's gotta just be poor install, but maybe it could be a door panel vs kick panel deal.

    I think its down to the R6A's and the ID's now...I've heard 2 or 3 people mention that the R6A's have better midbass, and the highs are almost as good as the MS6. A few people said that the R6A mid was better than the UR series mid on down. Have heard mostly good things about the ID's, but seems to be some problems with the mids. The R6A's would be authorized.
