    Speaker brand question

    alright. i thought that i was set on my infinity kappas but i just thought of other brands that would probably be better. would boston acoustics or mb quart loud speakers be better? i would want to set a cut off pretty high on it so as to leave the bass to the subs. any adivce would be helpful.

    It's hard to beat those Kappa's in their price range. Nothing wrong with them. Their not known for being extremely loud, but their loud enough for most. If you wanted something better I would recommend the MB Quart Premiums for about $100 more. But for the exact money of the Kappa's their hard to beat.

    I like it when people say price is no object, then you suggest the best, and they renig, lol. How about some Focal Utopia's, only $900, lol. No, but really I'd get some MB Quart QSD's, will run you $500 or so. Make sure you put 150w x 2 or so into them though.

    Not talking about you specifically, just thinking back to many people who said the same thing.

    Other good brands
    Oz Audio
    Dynaudio
    Infinity Perfect (tweeter is iffy)
    CDT
    Diamond Audio
    Crystal Mobilesound

    You may want to look at a pair of Polk Audio MOMO tweeters. They're a little spendy but are excelent stuff.

    Utopia's or MB Quart are much better all around speaker than the perfect's in my opinion. the tweeter lacks for the price that they cost, while the QSD mb quart are excellent and the best out there in my opinoin and right next to them are the focal utopia's. i'm glad that you have money as no object though b/c those focal's cost 900 like was stated earlier and if you can find those QSD's for 500 your getting one hell of a price, the best i have seen online is 800.

    keep it thumpin,

    the above are all well & good but also consider IDChameleons &, the DD components, rumoured to rival Polk's $5000 piece of kit.....what does that tell you.,...

    I was referring to the 3-ways, but that's still a good deal. You can get those 5.25" at www.cbrstereo.com for $499. Very nice speakers.
