    What would you do?

    If you have a choice between these two component speakers, Which would you pick? And why. Thanks.

    Infinity Kappa 60.5cs
    $129 plus shipping.
    90watts rms

    Or

    Re comps.
    $129 shipped
    I think 50 watts

    I have 85 watts rms for them. With the infinity's I would not recieve a warranty And with the RE's I would. I'm leaning more towards the Re comps right now. Will the Infinity's be able to outshine the RE's due to the greater power capability. Or will the RE's hold up well enough?

    Thanks.

    RE's...Kappa tweets have a reputation for being bright and sibilant.

    The RE's use a silk tweet right???

    And I think I read some where on here they were XBL^2 enabled drivers.

    Re: What would you do?

    i have the kappas, and am planning on replacing them. They are pretty bright. I bought them as my first set of aftermarket speakers and thought they were fine, but from what i read the re's would be better. I actually was thinking about buying the re's because of the group buy, but the tweeters dont surface mount.

    What would be needed to set up a pair of the RE comps? Anything special?

    Re: What would you do?

    I'd get the RE's as well. I own the 6000cs is my wifes car and they are very harsh with very little midbass.



    Mine: CDT, Eclipse, Diamond Audio, Dayton, Aura

    Wifey: Infinity, Concept, Pioneer, Profile, JBL

    Refs: Ruckus, MSSOKC

    Ok cool. Probably going to check out the RE comps then.

    Re: What would you do?

    I got Kappa 6x9s a while back, and the tweeters were really bright and did not appeal to my tastes. They were harsh. I don't know if they use the same tweeter, but they could be similar.
