Always listen before you buy, you could be completely turned off by the sound or absolutely adore it.

Everyones listening preferences don't always follow suit.

I think theres better quality stuff out there for the money if you go say DIY route, but thats just me, and my mentality. my full front stage minus amps, just drivers were ~200 and its the best imo for the money, And top notch.

One step up imo for tweets for me would be going to ribbon tweets, and 3way frontstage. For the money better things can be had, but it takes alot of work to get them to work right, the DIY way and lots of research. Thats just my thing though i guess.

I beleive that if you do your homework you can come out on top sounding much better overall than a premade comp set for 1/2 the money, and they can be compaired to some high dollar equipment in terms of SQ and overall output. But the majority of the trade off is higher impendence, with home audio drivers, and going the active route to get them to work right wihtout passives, and having an infinite amount of xover points and slopes.

All up to you and which way you want to go. Theres really no wrong as long as your happy.

I'd much rather stay away from one brand in particular and focus my install and equipment rather on what i'm looking for, what i can get for the best price, and what piece of equipment will suit my needs better than sticking with one company just to it looks ok.

If you want matching amps, go that route, as far as for drivers, processors, and HU's, mixing and mathcing is the way to go. One company can excel at making amps, while another excels at midranges, or midbasses, and another at Subs.......

For a really nice setup, and if you have the ability to go active, check out the LPG 25/26 for tweets, and the Seas CA18/G18, and be done with your front stage for just under 200 for the drivers. Another few hundred for amps to run them suffeciently, a good 40rmsx2 on your tweets and another 80rmsx2 on your mids, and pick up a nice sub, and you would be astonished at the clarity and detail this combo can do.

Stay away from caps...waist of money.

Really look into the DIY market away from mainstream companies....i can't advise that more than anything.....you will save money and reap so much more benifits than sticking with mainstream stuff. Mabey its just me though.
