Ok, this is for those experienced or knowing people...no stupid *** comments in here.
Here's the deal:
I'm going to go with DIY components, Keep in mind...it'll be a set. I'll be matching a mid with a tweeter of my choice, send the mid off to Madisound and have them build me a custom passive xover for them:
Either will be powered by my PG Tantrum 400.4 bridged (230rms x 2 @4ohms)
My first choice!
-Two Adire Audio Extremis 6.8 mids, paired with the Vifa D26NC05-06 from Madisound. It's a 1" textile dome neodymium tweeter that Adire recommended for me with the Extremis in mind!
Now, with the RE group buy in mind...the XXX6.5's for $179 shipped for the pair, I thought of those. Same deal as above...paired with the Vifa tweeter and sent to Madisound for custom passive xover.
I'm not as familiar with the XXX6.5's specs, but the extremis 6 is well documented and obviously seems amazing! And yes, I'm also aware of the impedance differences...
I highly doubt that anyone has had experience with both, but I thought I'd ask for thoughts/comments to see what people think. So...go for it!
