    Three way setup... What do you guys reccomend

    I have 300 watts x2 @ 4 Ohms. So power won't be a problem. But I wanted a three way setup because I really want to fill that MIDBASS category if possible.

    CDT, best bang for the buck



    I'm looking to buy some really nice components. 6.5" with 1" tweeters. PM me.

    Hardly.




    What's your budget?? And don't think that you can't get midbass out of a 2-way setup So, don't limit yourself to 3-ways for that reason alone......

    Budget is undecided yet, I want to see what is out there. It may take me a little while to save up for somthing, but I just wanted to know my options. I have the power, can make kicks or whatever, but don't know what to use for good midbass response, as well as highs.

    Budget undecided? Sweet let me make a pass at this.

    Four pairs of Iridiums sealed in kicks. Wired in series/parallel config so load will be 4 ohms.

    Or just one pair will do.

    But four would be sweet.

    The DLS Iridium 8.3 setup would rock. Pricey though, very pricey. Dynaudio System 360. Boston Pro's. Focal has some, but are very expensive. Rainbow has some....Morel aswell I believe.

    But, again, hard to say without an actual budget


    Also, if you wanted to get really tricky, you could go active and DIY your own 3-way frontstage (<---new smilies )

    Exactly what do you have against CDT? I think they are a very good Hand -Built Components...you just don`t give them no love and you seem to be the only one!

    LOL...again, hardly Go look up threads from about 6 months ago from Werd and George. They got ****** into the hype and weren't happy with their purchase at all. That's just one of the many examples of people being ****** into the hype that they are given around here, and then regretting their purchase later. Ask audiolife about them aswell


    Are they decent? I guess. Best bang for the buck? Not at all.

    i love my boston pros. they have a bit of a price tag on them but not nearly as much as some out there have. Try jl, they have a set too i think. I bet they wont dissapoint you.

    Everything, IIRC. Just weren't happy with them at all.

    That's the problem with forum "boners" though.......

    Thanks for the info guys, I got JL Coax's right now, and I really liek them. Jl's are lower on the power handling I think though, but that doesn't matter.
