JL speakers are overrated, get Bostons or MB Quarts

Alright I went to the store today and listened to the speakers... All I have to say is they had about 12 high quality brands there and the JL sounded the most crisp and had all the ranges covered. They are rather expensive but are worth it.

Everybody has their own taste. The only way to truly know how they sound is to hear them yourself. Cuz for me the MB Quarts are to overpriced for their sound. My personal favorites are the Polk & polk Momo'*.

Listening the the sound wall is always fun. I was deciding between the Boston Z ($999)and the MB Q-series ($1299). WAY overpriced but I went with the Qseries, found them on Ebay new in box for $450. What a deal and sounds great. Moved my Boston Pros to the rear.

My personal experiences listening to many cars, I don't like how ALL the lower lines of MB Quart sound, the tweets are a little too bright/harsh for me. but their top of the line Q'* sound great. Me=happy camper!
