    I am looking at buying a nice 3 way set up and these are my choices:

    DLS R36 or the JL Audio XR3somethingorother.

    What would you choose and why...

    I would go listen to them but no one in my state has the DLS in a demo car or demo room, and I am going to see if Sound Advice has the JL's out for demo.

    the JL 3 ways are really nice but DLS makes a great fucking speaker. The jls are kinda bright, but great midbass with detailed mids. The DLS' are warm, accurate with great attention to detail. what kind of music do you listen too? what kind of amps?

    I listen mainly to rock, but also rap and techno at times.
    The amp for now is a nine.2 from eD(ibedhate), but I want to get a much better component amp. Possibly a DLS A3 or some nice 6channel to go active
