  • Need recommendation...


    Instead of going for brand name components such as Infinity, MB Quart, Focal, Polk, etc. What can I buy at Partsexpress that would compose a nice set of 6.5" components with crossovers for around $200? Will the sound quality be comparable to brand name components? I know Partsexpress has quality individual speakers.

    I've built and suggest the Triune (MTM 4ohm version), or you could build the Tri-Trix (MTM 8ohm version). Both simple to build and cost about $60 each speaker plus finish.

        If you could look inside those 'brand name' boxes and see the appalling quality of the components most of them use you'd cringe. Even with pre-built cabs you can figure a speaker built with all dayton innards for $200 would cost you at least $800 off the shelf for the same quality.

          Are we talkin' car or home here?


          I get a sneakin' suspicion you are asking about car separates. Or I'm completely wrong.

                ... ask the same question at the following link. It seems that many of these guys are using the 4-ohm version of the Dayton RS drivers in car applications with various tweeters. I don't know if they are doing passive crossovers or active setups.
