    CCC: Clean, Crisp Coaxials

    i've heard alot of things about how clean MB Quart, Boston Acoustics, and Focal coaxials are. But how much truth is there to that statement?

    I want my mids and highs to be clean and crisp. MB Quart tweets sound awesome in my opinion, but not too sure on what coax's to invest in.

    Any input on any clean crisp coax's out there while staying in a moderate price range ($100<) for a pair.

    Re: CCC: Clean, Crisp Coaxials

    Coaxials don't necessarily sound "worse" than components - you just don't get the flexibility in aiming and imaging that comps offer. However, you can make coaxials sound very good - I do Just make sure you have enough amp power behind them, and watch your crossover points...I'm running 80-90W to my front stage of 6.5" coaxials in the doors, and they work great for me. I'm using BA FX6's, but I've heard Quart's and a few others...they sound fine too.

    Re: CCC: Clean, Crisp Coaxials

    mine will most likely be running off HU power (pioneer, dont remember actual #'s at the moment) until i can find the funds for a multi-channel amp to run them off of. Which ones do you recommend, since im running them off of HU power???

    Get good ones now, even if you have to use the head unit power. Why buy ones just for hu power, when you plan on adding an amp? Save yourself some money in the long run, get what you want now.

    dood i would wait and SAVE up and get what you really want all you are going to do is throw away 100 bucks for something that you'll end up doing the samething over again with. worst comes to worst get a cheap 2 channel amp http://www.infinitecaraudio.com/cgi-...logno=04KX1002
    then get a good to decent set of coaxes
    http://www.infinitecaraudio.com/cgi-...&catalogno=T66
    http://www.infinitecaraudio.com/cgi-...talogno=DLS426
    then call it a day you are already half way there!!! then run the rears if you wish off the headunit.
