    $140 Speakers

    I am wanting to spend $140 or $150 per set of speakers. I am needing 2 sets. What would be the best choice to go for? I am thinking the JL TR or VR series right now. Are Clarion speakers any good?

    -Daniel

    look into the pioneer revv series. the ones with the yellow cone. also look into the diamond coaxials. are you going to be running these with an amp?

    Re: $140 Speakers

    Yes I am going to be running them with a JL amp and here is my setup to give you a better idea of what I am doing

    Pioneer Premier DEH-P770MP head unit
    1 JL 10w3 w/ JL e1400d amp
    2 sets of Powerbass Xtreme Evolution Series ES572Xv.2 speakers (those are what I am debating on replacing...As of right now I want something with some bass so I can feel it at my feet, but with loud, clear, crisp highs.

    Out of those, I think the JL VR's are the best.....good luck finding a set for $140 tho. I can't really find a set for less than $180 shipped

    the diamonds and the pioneer rev's are better. worked with all of them. i do a lot of them in boxes for wakeboarding towers. the rev's are a little louder overall. the diamonds sound better as far as accuracy and overal tonal balance.

    Re: $140 Speakers

    Well right now with little tuning, the mids are lacking and the tweeters are bright. But of course I need to tune it more so Ill let you know. The tweeters might be bright because how I have them aimed, but I'll do a follow up tomorrow

    Definitely do that. Might want to put up a fully detailed review in the review section, so we can just put up the link for the inevitable "how are the Re comps?" threads.
