    I think the M6 are discontinued and have been replaced with a D6 set. The sound would be quite similar between the two though.

    Diamonds like/need a lot of power to shine, so expect to need at least 75w+ per channel to power them well.

    Re: diamonds in California

    I used to have the M series of the diamonds and now I've upgraded to the hex's. I like the tweeter on the hex more since its silk.

    I was running my hex's and an eclipse 6x9 pointsource with 100watts each channel. I finally got rid of the 6x9s and only running the hex's now with 200watts each channel and it sounds alot better. So make sure you're going to be providing them with enough power if you get them.

    Re: diamonds in California

    me too HEXs and a D5600.2 are an excellent combo
    even with the gains at 50% shes alot for my ears
    I have run the HEXs with about 4 different amps, MTX 65x2(way to small) ,Xenon 200.2,
    PA 180x2(too bright and cheap) and now the 150w 5600.2 which is way inderrated
    dam amp is a beast of power and clean output
