tweets are not overpowering in my opinion my kappa's were a lot louder. honestly I have bostons all around and I had there competitor subs. the subs suck and I'm not highly impressed with the mids. I would go mb quartz. the boston just don't get that loud. but then again I could be going deaf.

Thats where im shopping at (audio express) here in vegas, the hook me up hella good to, but now CONIG has got me worried, you say that there not that loud, and the mid's arn't that good but thats what im looking for, is a good mid because i cant fit any subs in my truck and i need a little bass, thats why i'm going with the compition series. Damn-it now what??

Don't do it!!

When I first got my DAK I installed Boston Pro Series Comps, let me tell you the midbass is weak and the tweeters are extremely harsh. To top that off there over priced.

I now have Rainbow Pro Comps and love them to death.

A couple other brands I reccomend are Focal,CDT,A/D/S

these guys are correct.. the mids really aren't that loud. (but if you turn down the bass a little and turn up the volume there's plenty for my reg. cab truck with 4 bostons and 2 10's) i have my tweets mounted axially on the speaker(just like a 2-way)

i like my bostons. there is ALMOST enough mid with just the 2 front speakers on. adding the rears back in balanced it out. the sound quality is awsome. i've never actually heard MB Quartz, but if i didn't go with boston that's who i would've gone with by reputation alone. MB Quartz supposedly makes DAMN good components.

actually my bostons will have a farely loud tweeter when my amp is turned up loud enough but then the crossover tends to do something funky and the tweets cut out.
