Ok, Xmas is just around the corner, and I need a few questions answered before I jump into any hasty purchases. First, will a good set of components get louder and sound better than my current setup of 4 5x7 Volfenhags? Second, I'm going to list a few links to component speaker sets in my price range, and could someone pick for me, the best of them?
Well...It's sort of my Mom who is the problem...she said that instead of getting rid of the big thing (the subs) try replacing something smaller (like the speakers). It's still HER car, until I get my license in Dec., so...hehehe. I can deal with the subs for longer, but I'd like some better mids and highs to be honest.
I listen to a lot of rock and metal, and rap when the occasion fits. Jazz/Funk like Lou Bega and Maroon 5 are common listens as well. So what do you guys think would fit my needs? I listen to ALL types of music (except country), but a lot of rock/metal for the most part. They don't need to be insanely bassy (as I know they won't being 5.25" midwoofers), but I want the clear crisp mids/highs, without sounding "tinny".
I see...Hrmm, do the perfects sound at all like Infinity's coaxial line? I've heard those, and wasn't too impressed, as they just seemed like "screamers". Those JL's look nice too, and I'll check out some MB stuff.
Hehe, I would, but to my knowledge, there aren't any around here, within a decent distance...You might find this crazy sounding, but I almost want a speaker with the highs of my Pioneer bookshelf speakers, and the lows of my Sony bookshelf speakers hehe. I know, Pioneer/Sony, bad things to look for, but compared to their car series, the home stuff is godly when you put the two together.
Not boomy (surprising for Sony/Pioneer), and actually sound relatively clean. In fact, if I could take the components out of those speakers and put them in my car, I probably would, as they sound better than most of Infinity's and Polk's home lines.
Oh well, I guess I'm hard to please. Maybe, I'll go with Cerwin Vega, since I like their home stuff a lot...they have new components, as those are their old ones...
