    Rainbow vs. DLS

    I know there have been many threads about this kind of thing but I have it narrowed down to 2 sets of 6.5 comps. I am trying to decide between Rainbow Soundlines and DLS MS6s. I have never heard either and don't know where to but I have heard of nothing but good from both. I can get them for around the same price so that isn't a deciding factor. I would like to hear as many responses as I can. Thanks, Eric.

    Re: Rainbow vs. DLS

    with either one you will be very happy but i believe that the dls's can take more power and still stay very clean. I have never heard the soundlines but the ms6's are great.



    My current setup:

    kenwood Kac-x959

    a set diamond m351's

    a set of re components

    ppi pcx480 on both sets of comps

    ppi pcx2200 on the subs

    2 ID12 V.3's Sealed

    Re: Rainbow vs. DLS

    both great companies IMO

    I cant help but to recommend the SLC's based on my hands on experience with them, ranging from 50rms-200rms per side installs. The fact that people have done well with that set in SQ comp in Europe alone speaks of their potential in a good install. Very natural, yet strong midbass and as smooth a fabric tweet you can come across for the price range. Tweet reminds me alot of the OZ Matrix tweet

    Re: Rainbow vs. DLS

    rainbow slc 265.02 sound line verse the dls ms6 review from auto hifi dls ms6 with a 4 star rating and the rainbows tied with the cdt cl-61 set at 3 stars. I have heard the ms6 and would rate them higher than the cl-61's. The rainbows i have never heard myself so couldnt say. i can scan this page for u if u would like to see it.

    Re: Rainbow vs. DLS

    I can vouch for the Soundlines. I am thoroughly impressed with them. I never listened to DLS. So I can´t give any comparison.
