Default Best Speakers for sound clarity

Just looking for everyones opinion on their ultimate sound quality component Speaker set up. I'm looking mainly for people with experience with what they are talking about. Don't just say "Focal" if you havnt ever actually heard or used them.

After a few responses i'll be putting up my opinions. Talk it up

i own Focals and have installed them in other cars an i say they are amazing, tweeters can be a tad harsh though if you get the alum ones. Another great brand i think is Mb Quart ive heard a few of the 5.25's and they were pretty nice

Seas Lotus, Genesis, Dynaudio. 1st and 3rd ive heard, outstanding...

Audioque will be releasing a german made high end set for under 200$, should be a giant killer.

Forgot all about those, the dotech ovations are very nice. No ones mentioned Hybrid audio either, but I havent personally heard them.

Focal Be No.7
realy nice speakers, heard them in sinsheim some months ago
a friend has the Brax Matrix system, has the Helix RS6.3 system b4, both are realy top notch speakers

im having the Polk audio SR6500, awesome sound quality, not as punchy in the kick like focals, but awesome highs
but well, its not exactly a system if you want it REAL loud, but same goes for pretty much every high sound quality system

I'm probably sound like a broken record to people cuz I all ways promote a soundstream product, but this time I really mean it. The soundstream reference components are amazing, and you could pair those with a R1-15 or (R1-12) sub, which specifically designed for SQ. Other brands that are equally (or in some cases even better drivers) are Vifa, Tang Band, and Aurum Cantus. (SS uses Vifa drivers in the components)

not looking to buy anything right now. those who saw my post yesterday about what my friend sent me from Italy know why.

I just hooked up a pair of the Seas Lotus 6.5"s in my stang and they sound insanely clear. I've heard alot of the Focal brand speakers, the Hi Energys i've heard over and over and they are nice.

I think my favorite though along with the Seas would still have to be Hertz. I just got an amp from Hertz and i'm expecting my components from them in the next week.

Not too crazy about CDT. Its good stuff don't get me wrong, just not my "cup of tea" i guess you could say lol

any other brands out there for SQ?

Here's a few that I have liked and I've heard a few high end sets. Morel (not sure which model, my Rainbow Germaniums and Hybrid Audio sets sound awesome (haven't heard the L4's w/ the L1's yet cuz my amp blew), Rainbow SLC's were pretty nice, Focal K2P's were alright, Boston Z6's are pretty nice, the high end Polks sounded really good, I don't like the high end JL's, the older MB Quart premiums sounded really good if you can turn down the tweets a little.

The older MB Quarts i loved, my uncle had a few sets a while back, agreed on the JL's. I honestly don't hear the brilliant sound that u'd expect to go along with the price tag on their speakers. I heard the rainbows in a kids car locally but it was powered by the head unit not an amp so i can't put an honest opinion on those. Hybrid Audio i had forgotten about, still havn't heard any in person but i've heard real good things about their product.

the entire profi line from rainbow including the vanadium are some of the best i have ever heard. other than that those seas lotus tweeters are some of my favorites.. The best comp set i've heard to date would be the rainbow power CS 275.27 set. I think one of the mods on here has that set, maybe he'll let ya know

The Hybrid Clarus component set has also gotten really good reviews.

I have had nothing but bad luck with all my Soundstream ventures, It all LOOKS good on paper and everyone talks big about it but man the final in your hand product is a Let down........Ohh DONT even get me started on there craptacular decks.......FAIL FAIL FAIL! I love dealing with pissed off customers who have broken equipment...


The Mtx thunder Axe's are Super nice, Get REAL loud and just plan sound good!
They Loaned us the HHR Demo car for a week and they were setup nice and we were all very impressed with there clarity and volume....

Another Good contender is Memphis MSQ's witch are Changing as of right now *OUT OF STOCK FROM MEMPHIS* but damn I loved those things for bang for the buck....

Eclipse 6500 arent bad for just under 200

Focal / Morel / yea bring your wallet, Worth it if you can swing it like that cause they are priced like that for a reason top quality its gonna be good!
