    I need a 5.25" component set. It will be powered by a RF 600a4. I want to avoid metal tweets, unless there is a set that does give it a really harsh hiss at high volumes. :hs:


    Thanks.

    Sorry, I do not want that. My MBQ tweets are pretty harsh.

    :hs: What are you using to power them? Does Diamond Audio honor ebay purchases? I know a lot of places only honor them only if they were bought from an authorized dealer, usually at a BM place.

    Yea, other than metal, I only know of silk. At loud volumes, the harsh tones become almost unbarable. Or maybe I am just not tuning my amp right.

    DIamond doesn't support ebay sales but the company who sells them offers a 1yr warranty.

    I'm using an avionixx 800.2 to power them. [email protected]

    They have CL-62 for $150
    ADS 236is for $155


    Is mainstreet a reputable place to buy from?

    I'd go with the CDTs.

    I dont know anything about mainstreet but they should come with a 3-year warranty.

    Mainstreet is one of the few authorized dealers for CDT Audio. They are specifically listed on www.cdtaudio.com, which is how I found them a year ago. I purchased 3 sets of components and one set of coaxials from them (3 different orders) and they were a pleasure to do business with.

    If i had 200 i'd look @ some a/d/s/ components. Seen a few sets on ebay for pretty decent price.
