RMS isn't everything. I have never heard the ID coaxials. I hope they sound great for you.

Thanks alot for the help guys i'm going to continue to compare all those speaker choices and probably sleep on it.
My guess is the seller is not an authorized PPI retailer so you will not have a warranty.

Good point. I'd pay the extra couple bucks for the warranty.

I'd fix the way they're mounted first. Half-*** mounted speakers will distort at higher volume.

Went through pulled all panels back off retaped, remounted made sure all were completely solid. sounds pretty damn good, i sure **** wish i would have known on the stock speaker mount there was a tweeter. i could have went component up front with no new holes.... and i could have went mid's in the back. pretty sad about it but it is what i got for now. any suggestions on tuning? i sent the gain on the fronts around half but still alittle confused on the filters. there is a 10" w3v3 for sale locally for 180, i'm going to try to get it for 120, then pick up a small mono block amp for it. any suggestions on that? thanks for all the help i really do appreciate it.

edit nevermind on that w3 it is older style. So now i'm going to start searching for a 10" sub, vented box, and amp.

edit edit lol: man i wish i had 350 laying around there is a w7 in a nice box i wish i could pick up.

well i have been messing with the tuning most of the day and can't get them to sound decent i'm regretting my decision on these 6" speakers and will be looking into returning them. Doesn't seem like they are any louder or clearer then the stock ones i took out. (not talking about bass either just highes mostly without distorting or boarderline clipping.) pretty much meaning the amp was point less and i could have hooked them straight to the after market deck and got the same results. Going to the website right now to ask them about their return policy.

The Peerless/Vifa BC25TG15-04 (silk dome)tweeters are excellent for their price. Parts express will have them back in stock in 3 weeks. The XT25SC90-04 (ring radiator) tweeters are about $4ea more, but very good too.

I just wonder if you had taken the advice about components, would you have been happier?

It completely depends on his source unit, crossover/amp settings, doors being deadened, and if the current coaxs like off axis better than on, or vice versa tbh.

Clipping is determined by how you set the gains on the amp. I seem to remember that I/we warned you to avoid 3-way co-axial speakers. Those speakers look like they don't even have a crossover. That would cause lots of comb filtering, which tends to sound harsh and combined with that shrill sounding "super tweeter", I'm pretty sure they're difficult to listen to.

You can try the Pioneer TS-D1602R. It's 2-way and appears to have a proper crossover network.
