I forgot how much i loved my Memphis Msyncs
i bought these speakers a couple years ago and havent listened to them in a while. i blew one of my rainbow mids so decided to throw these back in... and honestly i gotta say - i think i like them better than my rainbows (mids) and these can be had for far less.. in comparsion to my rainbows - they take about the same amount of power and get basically as loud but have a lot less coloration and seem to sound a lot smoother.. the rainbow's sounded absolutely amazing on some songs.. and only so so on others... these sound great on almost everything.
as i said its been awhile since i listened to em and the tweeters bit the bullet a long time ago.. i remmeber them as being loud (not harsh) but defently something that could use a little tuning when placed high in the dash but if run by the mid or in the kicks - sound fine. they come with a metal tweet but the silk domes can be purchased serperately which i heard is an amazing tweeter.
overall i couldnt be happier with the mids.. the only thing i gotta caution is how much power you put to them because of the crossovers.. when i had the tweeters - they took 150 watts for like a year.. then when i got a new amp and put 200+ to them.. the tweeter protection did nothing and the crossovers litterally blew up and popped the tweets.. but the mids can handle the 200+ pretty well.. you might just have to cross them at about 120hz if you wanna run that much
so overall if you're looking for a great sounding set of speakers with a moderate budget - i dont think you can go wrong with these... i would suggest buying these and maybe a better tweeter and sell the ones they come with.. unless you have access to a decent eq.
memphis doesnt get the love it deserves on these forums.
