    Money is no concern, looking for the best 5 1/4 speakers and 6x9's. They will be amped on a Alpine MRP-F450.

    Best is subjective. Go listen for yourself.

    Might as well add Zapco Competitions and Morel to that list as well.

    The issue is you need to listen for yourself at this point. The problem is that most places won't have what you are looking for on a demo board.

    Lines to think about:
    Focal Be
    Zapco
    Hertz Mille
    Brax
    Genesis Absolutes
    Alpine F#1
    Rainbow Platinum/Reference
    Seas Lotus
    Dynaudio/Morel

    Critical Mass has one, but UBER expensive. And AudioPulse/TC Sounds should be coming out with one too that is supposed to be good.

    You honestly can't go wrong with any of the above mentioned speakers. If one were infinitely better than another, everyone on the competition circuit would be running the same stuff.

    If money is really not an issue, then it don't matter how much or LESS you spend right?

    Ebay is a risky source. But old school ADS speakers are still some of the best sounding speakers, ever.
