The best speakers are nothing without the best system design, install, tunning, and speakers placement.

 

But I would look at a three-way system or horns. I don't know which ones... I don't bother looking at speakers that I can't get for $250 or less at wholesale prices anymore... it's an issue of diminishing returns... once you get above a certain point, every time you double your money, any realized performance gains are so small it's not worth it.

Very good point Gary. Although a couple of months ago I got to hear a set of high doller Boston's. They sounded absolutly amazing, but they wanted a arm and a leg for them. No way I would pay that kind of money for them no matter how good they sounded.

D9 i wouldn't put as one of the higher end comps set. Good but nothing too exciting for a high end set. Hertz Mille, Focal Utopia Be, the Zapco Competition line speakers, some of the new CDT ES drivers are quite nice(not crazy high end), Seas, and DLS. Alot will depend on how the install is done. I mean look at the alpine demo vehicles. Never a huge fan of Alpine speakers but in that install they sound darn nice.

I agree with Alter about the d9 not being really a high end speaker. The Alpine type X line of speakers r nice, I gave them some consideration before going with the Jl XR's, both are VERY similar. The JL's & the Alpine type X r both a little over $400 for a set of 6.5 comps but you can get both the JL's & the Alpines for $200, brand new, on Ebay. I would say both of those are just starting to get into your high end. It really comes down to what YOU like & how much you want to spend!! Some other high end speakers I like is the MB Quart Q-line,JL ZR'S,Rainbow's high end line, and probably some of the best sounding is the Focal Utopia's. The of course is more but those are some that I have listened to and really like. Don't buy speakers according to what other tell you they like, go around & do some comparing. Good luck!

i thought they were just beefed up dynaudio woofers... hmm...

 

anyways, i really like the seas excel nextel + hiquphon owI combo...

 

i just do not see the point of paying too much for car speakers...it's not a very good environment for audio and theres always the theft factor

my good friend and fellow zapco teammate kirk profit who is a multi IASCA and MECA world champ who had the SEAS nextel/ SEAS metal ref combo...just switched over to the audio techs "that I sent him" and after a little break in time, he's told me that is such a night and day difference that everything he has heard to day in his car has been wrong...

What kind are you running now?

 

You still running CDT?

 

Had a 3 way morel active setup for awhile and loved it but now back to running some new cdt gear and love these. No matter how happy i ever am with a set i always find myself doing new setups. To be honest just like to try new things :)
