ZenBoy, The Zeb is a great source. Alas unless you are willing to take Linearzero's suggestion of MB Quarts they wont do you much good in your search for speakers. But give them a look.

Linearzero, thanks for the suggestion, but I was looking for something with a silk-domed tweeter. Much smoother to my ears (and we all know how subjective these things are). Last I checked, MB Quart was using a harder material.

I'm set on subs for now (10" BA Comp series), so I'm only looking for component speakers for the front doors at this point - I figure the back are for fill, so why swap them out from what I already have? I currently have BA Pro 6.5 components in the front, and I hate them. No, maybe hate is too kind of a word. I'm going to sell them and put in one of the three I mentioned.

I've always like Dynaudios that I've heard, but in my experience Morel tweeters do the best off-axis. Focal I don't have much experience with, on- or off-axis.

Slvrphish, thanks for the suggestion, I'll check them out.

Do any of you have experience listening to Dynaudio or Focal tweeters off-axis? I definitely want the tweeters in the factory location, to keep things looking OEM (I work in a higher-crime area than where I live).

Thanks for the feedback!

ZenBoy,

One of my local car audio dealers sales Focal. I stopped by a couple of times to have a listen. The Focals sound really good but I never heard them in a car.

Just doing some quick searching I found:
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=3066219731&category=18800
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=3066967059&category=32819
http://www.audio-trader.com/car-audio/dynaudio/component-speakers/
http://www.infinitecaraudio.com/cgi-bin/icastore.cgi?user_action=detail&catalogno=System340

The first two are the cheapest but I am not sure how you feel about doing business with/on eBay. I did really well with my system and purchased a 100% of on eBay.

Happy Holidays

Cheers,
Silver Phish

Dynaudio's are nice... I've always liked their sound.

You might want to check out CDT on the Zeb. They are more "warm" feeling... I bought the Cl's but there's some HD's on there for 200.

I ordered something from parts express and they sent me their catalog and it shows that they sell a lot of speaker brands like morel and vifa if you wanted to go that route.

Dannnnnng, they take the prize for prices so far! Thanks for the link. How are their shipping prices? Decent, or is that where they're making their money?

EDIT: Egad, I can't speel worth a carp these days....
