Components - Want to spend money ASAP! **VENDORS**

Okay, the wife is away spending my money on clothes. Which means I can justify the beating I am sure to get when she finds out I have bought new components. My budget is not set in stone but I have been looking in to the $400 range (shipping Included). I am not going to buy local cause I want something different/not inflated. The components I have been looking at are...

Need two way 6.5" (I don't want to have to cut or mod anything for a 3 way)

Re xxx6.5's (based on the midbass potential)

Alpine SPX-17PRO

CDT's (though I have no idea what model)

Rainbow CSX 465.20

Morel Tempo 6

I prefer a natural sounding tweeter. Nothing bright like the infiniti. I have
3.75" of depth in my doors. Prefer to buy from vendors here as long as long as it comes in the price range. Otherwise to the internet I go.

I am headed through Kamloops on Wednesday, is that soon enough for you? I don't have them in stock but if the rep has them in Vancouver, I will pick them up for you on the way through. He should have them in stock, just need to get ahold of him. Failing that I have the nice Eclipse SC6500 component set in stock that we have had great results with. They are also one of my favorite sets of speakers.

Sorry, just to be sure. what speakers do you have to get from the rep. You mentioned "failing that you have the Eclipse" but didn't mention the first choice of speakers you had for me.

Was looking at the Tempo 6. They seem to review well.

Please disregard. I pulled the pin on some CDT ES-620's.

Well a couple of things. I listened to the JL Audio c5's and wasn't overly impressed. Granted they were on a board but I had nothing else to go on. I auditioned some Hertz speakers in a car and on a board and to get in to the level of speaker I was wanting it was gonna cost mucho monero.

I found, or rather I was found by a Canadian CDT dealer and got a smokin price for the ES620's with upgraded gold mid woofer so I bit the bullet.

Going off of reviews alone the CDT's seemed pretty consistent with what I wanted. I can only hope they come through for me.

As for amp I am currently running a Phoenix Gold Ryval which will send 150w RMS to each side. I have plans to upgrade the amp when budget allows and if I feel I am lacking SQ running the Phoenix Gold.
