I like they way they sound. And I've listened to some good blaupunkt and better JBL setups before I bought them. They do justice to my musical tastes , and my friends agree !

Aww! You must try the "SQ Reference", Energy Series in that case.

I think there are a pair of "SQ REFERENCE" energy series speakers alongwith a pair of supertweeters up for grabs in Pune.. Contact vikram18 and see if they're up for sale..

I've heard the hi-energys and absolutely hated the way they reproduced mid-range, the hi freq after the supertweeter and genesis was sounding decent! but there was as good as no definition in mid-bass. All this being run off a good genesis amp! IMHO the hi-energys are definitely not worth the price you pay for them in India!

for a person with a budget of 10k, its kinda useless talking about how the Energy/Hi Energy sounds. For the price range, Dieci sound quite good !
To the people posting about bad mids , what was the HU used? I have an alpine and they sound quite sweet

Dont want to spend on an amp or a subwoofer right now. Any further upgrades will have to wait for a year.
I need some suggestions on which component speakers to use.

Different manufactuers measure sensitivity differently so be wary of sensitivity figures that are not accompanied with a legible frequenecy response and/or SPL vs Frequency graph(s).

My mom used a pair if Infinity Ref 6020 (I think she paid less than 10K for them) with her Alpine HU till the amp she ordered was delivered. For most uses (she listens to Elvis, Beatles, and stuff from the 50s) it worked fine.

Many speakers allow for the HP and LP sections of the XO (only possible with parallel XOs) to be used separtely in which case you can use the front and rear channels of your HU this way.

The HU used was the JVC Touchscreen model with DVD playback, not the best HU to audition them on, but still.. My JBL 506Ce 5.25" Midrange mated with the Illusion audio Electra 1" Al Dome tweeter sounded better..

I'm sorry I have to disagree here. 6k is not cheap for those comps by any standards. And they sound quite ordinary, irrespective of the price. And this goes for the Energy Series as well.

Try and hunt for old stock of Luccents... afaik they have been discontinued.

Electra should be available... they were backordered for a while.

Yes, that facility can be provided. It has been provided in the past as well, and no one has ended up paying us installation and removal charges. In fact you are welcome to bring along any other speakers that you would want to A-B as well.

The Lucents are no longer available. Only the Electras (6990) and the Carbons (29990).

Pehle kyon nahi bataya? I had to audition the Electras in your White Cow with that thundering sub woofer making my shirt (and hair) fly in all directions.

Neglecting all other factors like oil/ steel/ aluminium/ etc raw material and other input costs increases, just consider this:

Exactly 6 months ago, 1 USD = 40.5 INR
Today, 1 USD = 46.5 INR
% increase = 15%
