    Try a pair of MTX RFL152's. They're OK. And not too expensive (ha ha ha) :p

    I'd take the W0's over the HED's.

    dvc has nothing to do with performance, those jl w0s will blow those heds out of the water. You can get the tempests from www.adireaudio.com, its the 15 inch model obviously, but youll be happy with them!!!!!!

    Tempests

    Ok great...

    so now the next question will be..

    tempests or w0's ????

    i can order the tempests through their WWW and have them shipped to australia, but not sure if the tempests will be worth the extra costs / hassles.

    How much extra money are we talking here? I'd say that the Tempests would be a much better choice if it wasn't something outrageous.

    Ummmm....

    After doing some research i think they'd work out to be just as expensive.

    Im starting to like the tempests, as plain as they may look... they seem to be very powerful

    *shrugz* it is very hard for me as i've never seen / heard of that brand here in OZ before, but i do see a lot of you talking about them with nothing but good things to say.

    AHhhh... SO CONFUSED !!!
